The Morning Post: It’s the dog days of fall camp.

*If you want an explanation for today’s headline just watch UCLA coach Jim Mora’s video.

**Cornerback Brandon Sermons was not at practice. Mora said he’s sick. Maybe it’s that virus he’s talking about

***Linebacker Nate Iese returned to practice after a dislocated finger. It was a very minor injury as you can imagine since he didn’t even need a wrap.

****UCLA spent most of practice going 11-on-11 and simulated Rice. The offense struggled with rhythm, from QB Brett Hundley all the way down to substitution. At one point Mora was upset with the lack focus. Here are some good tidbits from today’s practice: Safety Randall Goforth recorded two interceptions off QB Kevin Prince. WR Devin Lucien made a couple nice grabs. His rivalry continues with Ishmael Adams, but no incidents today. New cornerback Fabian Moreau continues to impress at cornerback. His ability to learn the position so quickly increases depth. Dalton HIlliard continues to see more time at inside linebacker. Damien Holmes’ time has decreased some, but the assumption here is so that Hilliard gets as many reps during camp so he acclimates himself to playing at linebacker. Hilliard previously played a little running back in spring camp before going back to safety at the start of fall camp, only to move to linebacker at the tail-end of practice in San Bernardino.

*****UCLA will go with full pads tonight at 7 p.m. It’s the final practice open to the public.

    Hilliard’s situation is starting to remind me of Christian Ramierez’s. Here’s hoping that the former is utilized better than the latter, who never really found his place (and at this point, I have every faith that the current coaching staff recognizes how to get the best talent onto the field).

    Spelling and grammar on this blog is atrocious just as it is on the USC Daily news blog. What kind of idiot is conducting this blog and why are there no editors? You wrote “explenation” when the correct spelling of the word is explanation. Do your job well or do not do it all all.
