Here is my report card for UCLA’s loss to Fresno State. Feel free to vote on what you think the grades should be.
I know some folks recommended an offbeat Q&A session with a player each week. Questions like ‘What’s in your ipod, favorite cereal or whatever, and I’m thinking I could start it this week.
Please vote below if you want me to do that.
Also, post ONE question and give me the ONE player you would like to hear from this week, and that is how I will determine it. But please post the ONE question and ONE player by noon Wednesday.
I’m thinking of a quick-hitting 10 questions so folks can learn more about their favorite players.
Here is the notebook I wrote in today’s paper in which UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel talks about the need to throw the ball down the field more, as well as other things about Saturday’s loss.
Also, below is a comment from Bruins tailback Kahlil Bell, who was asked about freshman Derrick Coleman’s fumble.
“No one on this football team should point to him, no one in this stadium should point to him, nobody affiliated with UCLA should point to him,” Bell said. “There were so many opportunities for us to win this game, early in the game and at the end of the game. We just couldn’t finish, couldn’t capitalize. It’s not just him. It’s everybody. He’ll be fine. He’ll dust himself off. He’s a young buck, he’s got a lot of football left to play here and he’s going to help this team out.”
At 1-3 and riding a three-game losing streak, UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel was asked tonight whether he needs to remind his team not to overlook Washington State.
In case you missed it, Washington State (1-4) lost to Cal (66-3) and Oregon (63-14) at home in its two Pac-10 games.
“I don’t think Washington State or UCLA can worry about overlooking somebody,” UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said. “We’re both trying to develop our programs, and obviously looked toward Saturday night as a huge opportunity to get that done.”
