Phil Steele names eight Bruins midseason All-Pac-12

In the mood for a round of meaningless-but-encouraging awards? Have some midseason All-Pac-12 team mentions, courtesy of college football guru Phil Steele.

Steele named eight UCLA players to his all-conference squads, with outside linebacker Anthony Barr and left guard Xavier Su’a-Filo leading the way on the first team. The pair also landed on Steele’s midseason All-American team, with Barr earning a first-team nod and Su’a-Filo a second.

Center Jake Brendel and linebacker Eric Kendricks both made the midseason second team. Receiver Shaq Evans and running back Steve Manfro joined the pair there, but earned their spots for contributions at kick and punt return.

Quarterback Brett Hundley ended up on the third team, behind Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Oregon State’s Sean Mannion. Defensive end Cassius Marsh rounded out the UCLA names on the list.

    Phile Steele is a douche and a joke! Lost all respect for him when he predicted USC to be in the National Championship hunt and to win the Pac 12 South! Damn! Nobody wants to give Kendrick any kind of live either huh? Maybe if he gets to 200 tackles. Only then will he maybe make first team all conference. Ha Ha what a joke!

      As big a joke as you are. Go give Kendricks some more LIVE.

      Yeah I can’t understand why kendricks gets no love from fox or espn. Oh well, keep tackling Eric, keep tackling.

    I’d respond to you Joe but……….I figure. Besides this response. You just aren’t worth it. Funny thing is you have no good material or come backs for anything. I’ll leave you to tend to your own powerhouse! Cheat On! I’m sure you’ll win the Pac 12 sometime in the next
    decade 😉

      You’re still responding.


      LOL and when was the last time the bRuins won a conference championship in football?

    Jack, a bit of context: tomorrow’s game against Stanford is arguably the BIGGEST football game we’ve played since the Miami Debacle of ’98. This is the toughest and most important back-to-back road series in more than a decade. If UCLA can emerge 1-1 over the next 8 days, we will have turned a GIGANTIC corner for our program. However, if we drop both games to Stanford and Oregon, we will once again be seen as the “program that almost achieved greatness.” Where’s the ink, bro?
