UCLA REPORT CARD
RESULT: Arizona State 55, UCLA 34
WEEK 11 GPA: D+
Richard Brehaut set team records for completions and attempts, threw great deep passes, but missed some key throws.
Johnathan Franklin should’ve dived over the line on goal-line stand, but Derrick Coleman should’ve had first- and second-down tries that went to Malcolm Jones.
Impressive performances by Taylor Embree and Nelson Rosario make UCLA fans think, ‘Where was this all season?”
Way too inconsistent in the running game, and Brehaut had to run for his life at times, but was only sacked once.
The way UCLA D-linemen engage blocks, the diamond rings must be massive. DL Coach Todd Howard needs to teach the rip and swim better.
Either these linebackers were out of position all game, or the scheme was not up to par, but UCLA’s second line of defense was non-existent.
Can’t imagine a more disappointing group this late in the year than the fast-talking, slow-footed unit.
Kai Forbath regained his swagger with two field goals, tying John Lee’s UCLA career record, but ASU touchdown return was pivotal…and unacceptable.
Don’t understand not going for QB sneak on 4th-and-inches on goal line, but defensive scheme even more baffling.
