Odds and End

Two-a-days are officially wrapped up, and UCLA will enter pseudo-SDSU-prep mode starting tomorrow.
Rick Neuheisel said the Bruins will start installing a game plan over the next couple days, hold a Rose Bowl scrimmage on Friday and head into Sunday’s practice fully ready to play.

The last afternoon session of fall camp was a heated battle between the offense and defense, with players jawing, some pushing and overall high energy. When any defense made a sack – first-team through fourth-stringers – Brian Price screamed, “SACK! SACK!!! SACK!” Exclamation points might not do them justice.

Neuheisel is happy for UCLA’s late school start, which gives his players extra time to absorb the game plan.

“The question is, what will we do with the rest of the way? UCLA’s not in school yet, and we have to take advantage of that opportunity. We need to make sure these young players are getting all these tutoring sessions that are available to them. We have a lot of time to still nail down the concepts.”
