Check out the latest batch of weekly answers…
1) I note that most if not all of the ucla posters on SC Wolf’s blog state commentary that is rude, crude, exaggerated, boring and repetitive. Whereas, the SC comments on your blog are comparatively benign. If you agree or disagree, why do you believe this is the case? – BE REAL
I just think it’s a lot easier to be angry when you’re coming from behind. Right now, UCLA is coming from behind.
2) Jon, if you had a son, and he was a four or five star QB recruit, would you want him to go to UCLA? – Yo mamma
Wow, what a loaded question. As an institution, UCLA is among the best in the world. As a football program, there’s a ways to go. If the situation was right, yeah. If the situation was not right, no.
3) Can we get some info on Darius Bell? Whats the difference (or how is he better) than Kevin Craft? D. Bell is listed as a 2-star and Craft was (considered) a 5-star. – Anonymous
From all I’ve heard on Bell, he’s got a cannon and can move. I don’t know how well he runs an offense, though his JC performed well. I need to see him a little bit before passing a true judgment, but I’ve heard that Chow and Neuheisel were selling him on a chance to contribute early.
4) Has the coaching staff made a firm and substantial decision to run and recruit for a spread option based offensive scheme, shifting away from the classic drop-back/west-coast pro-style offense (a la Coach Homer Smith, Bob Toledo, and Karl Dorrell)? – Anonymous
I think it’s fair to say that Neuheisel and Chow are at least trending toward a more option-oriented, improvisational offense. Even before the Revolver was installed, they were mixing it up a bit.
5) Do you think Damien Holmes will develop into a dominant defensive end or will he get passed over for Owa, Datone Jones, and Keenan Graham? – Anonymous
Jones is already starting, and I think as of now, the other spot is Holmes’ to lose. I like Holmes’ game, I’m just more intrigued by the raw, freak talent of Graham and Owa. Will be an interesting battle going forward.
