I find it interesting that a reporter seemed to be questioning Kelly about giving Joshua Kelley the ball forty times in the game. To be sure, forty times is a lot of work for one guy and, of course, doing so can increase the potential concussion risk for any player. But UCLA is pretty strict with its concussion protocols and, if there were an issue with that, Kelley would have left the game. I love how Chip declared that the UCLA football program “is the most scientific team in all of college football” and told the reporter not to worry about it.
I think it’s one of the most honest answers I’ve heard from a UCLA coach in my time with Bruins Nation.
Thanks to Tracy Pierson of Bruin Report Online for sharing Chip Kelly’s postgame interview.
Next up we have the player interviews, starting with the player of the game Joshua Kelley.
I think you’ve just got to love Kelley. He’s got an infectious smile and just seems like a genuinely great kid, who is now a Bruin legend.

Wilton Speight also met with the media after yesterday’s game. Speight’s video is also courtesy of Matt Joye of Bruin Report Online.
Finally, we have Darnay Holmes and Adarius Pickett discussing the play of the defense.
Kudos again to Matt Joye from Bruin Report Online for sharing this video also.
