Neuheisel on Lockett

I spoke to UCLA football coach Rick Neuheisel during Pacific-10 media day about his decision to suspend strong safety Bret Lockett for the Sept. 1 opener against Tennessee for committing a violation of the team’s academic policy.
And while I do not find it necessary to reveal what it was, it was a similar incident to what a player did under former coach Karl Dorrell. And Dorrell did not suspend the player.
“I’ve been guilty of it in the past, in my own mind, of not being pro-active enough in disciplining (players),” Nueheisel said. “I just want to make sure there are consequences to every action.”
