UCLA coach Jim Mora said Tuesday that despite a relatively thin roster, his team has no need to pace itself at all in spring camp.
Still, Mora’s second collegiate season has yielded — at least so far — a slightly tamer version of himself. On the first day of spring practices, no Bruins were seen dry-heaving or vomiting.
“He’s still going to be the intense dude he is, but he’s a little more lenient because he knows we understand where he is,” senior wide receiver Shaq Evans said. “He knows that we know what he expects from us.
“Last year, he tried to kill us just to get us to know that this is what he expects from us. This year, we know what to expect. We had scrambled heads last year.”
