WATCH: Mora Meaningless Coachspeak After Another Bruin Loss in a Big Game

Jim Mora offers more meaningless coach speak and cliches after another big loss in a game where Bruins' were hurt by bad coaching decisions.

Mora offered more "coach speak" of how Bruins came up "short" and how they are going to "recover" and "continue to grow" and "grow stronger from it." It's the same stuff he threw out after Oregon game. It sounds catchy and emotional, but doesn't mean much if Bruins continue to lose in big games particularly in the way we lost tonight in which Mora's bad game-management decisions dearly cost the Bruins.

Mora had no good explanation for exclusively playing Myles Jack at RB which cost the Bruins badly in first half as the Bruin defense gave up 357 yards. One would think Taylor Kelly wouldn't have as much success with running the ball Jack was playing LB tonight.

Mora offered up the young excuse again but didn't have any explanation for how in his second season Bruins still have not played a single complete game to date. For some reason, youth and inexperience is always an issue for Bruins, yet the team on the other side of the town keeps winning big games, playing 12-13 players on defense and having a glorified cheer-leader as it's head coach.

It's come to the point that none of this coach speak from Mora means much at this point - especially if he doesn't get the job done next weekend. If Bruins lose against Southern Cal, Mora's second year at UCLA will be nothing short of a major fail.
