After middling results during the first few weeks of spring ball, the UCLA running game took off on Tuesday. Junior Derrick Coleman broke off a pair of long runs including a line-busting touchdown, and sophomore Johnathan Frankling sprung for a touchdown.
“The main thing they wanted to do is get that downhill running thing,” Coleman said. “That forces the defense to come in, and when they come in, we pass. When we start passing, we can run. I’m liking it so far, but we’ve got to keep it consistent.
“I feel like we’re learning this fast than we’ve learned anything the last two years.”
