On the coaches job during tough practices:
“You’ve got to keep pushing, you’ve got to keep on them. I want the coaching staff to understand that’s what we’re doing here. We will reap the benefits when we start to freshen them up, which will be our job over the weekend. I like where we are, I like how we’re fighting, scratching and clawing. But we have to push through these tougher days as we go forward.”

On Jeff Locke’s availability if Kai Forbath went down:
“It’s a nice insurance policy, but Kai Forbath is one of the best in the country. We would miss Kai.”

On how UCLA is preparing for SDSU, particularly the Aztec coordinators’ experience with UCLA:
“You’re basically going on things of the past. It’s a little bit of an educated guess. We’ve gone back that far, absolutely. They may wax nostalgic being back in the Rose Bowl.”

    what’s your take on the intensity level of the players? sounds pretty up and down…like sometimes it’s not “harnessed” and sometimes it’s lacking…

    i recently spoke with a couple of ex ucla quarterbacks who expressed their disappointment with the fact Kevin Craft didnt seem to get a fair shake from coach coming into this spring. i have to agree! i hate to second guess my coach whom i have a tremendous amount of respect for – but i think the kid who took such a beating last year and never complained deserved a better look.

    your thoughts?????
