Post-practice update

If Wednesday’s practice was any indication of how UCLA will attack Oregon’s runners on Saturday, the Ducks might not be quacking for very long.
The Bruins are an angry bunch after their first loss, and tackling drills reinforced their desire to improve what was a dramatic weakness against Stanford. UCLA coaches had to temper down the defense after a few big hits, but they could not have been too unhappy about the energy.
The Bruins talked about their sadness after the Cardinal loss and the desire to atone for their sins against Oregon, specifically Reggie Carter.
Kevin Prince looked a full day better than yesterday, and it appears that he only really needs to shake off some rustiness, rather than any lingering effects from missing three weeks.
Damien Thigpen looked great in practice, and Rick Neuheisel said after practice that he’s earned some more chances after his performance against Stanford.

I’ll be back with some quotables throughout the night.

Thanks

    Jon,

    The “other newspaper” in town noted that Brehaut would be Prince’s backup which would obviously mean Craft has gone from starter to 3rd string this week. Have you noticed any improvement in Brehaut’s play, command of the playbook, game management, etc. over the last couple of weeks? If true, do you think this will re-ignite the passionate “bromance” many of the readers had with Brehaut and propel them to email Coach Neuheisel their demands that Brehaut start?

    Brehaut should be the backup for Prince, we need the spark. KCraft is still having nightmares about last season and all the sacks & picks. With the revamped O-line it is time for the youth to step up.
