    What’s that dance the kickoff coverage team does before kickoffs? Brah it’s hilarious and it gets them hyped

    • Joe Blow

      The Twist.

  • LTEfan

    Is there any speculation as to what Devin Fuller’s undisclosed injury is? Could Manfro or Thigpen play?

  • 92104bruinfan

    Any reason to be concerned about football recruiting thus far? NSD 2014 is still a ways off but the Bruins seem to be a bit off pace from recent years at least as far as class rankings go.

    • Joe Blow

      Wait until ASU, USC and the bowl opponent beat ‘em, then it will be a problem.

      • HeySUCs

        Yawn.

    • LTEfan

      Some rankings are based largely on the size of the class, cumulative score being the key. Others are more about the overall quality of the class. I don’t know how many scholarships UCLA has this year, it might be less than in Mora’s first two seasons (which would not be surprising given how the current roster is filled with young players).

      • 92104bruinfan

        I saw that there were only 14 scholarships given out thus far by Mora so there may be a few more to come. Also, I’m sure the 3 early graduations will help as well. Anyhow, I hope they close strong in the next couple of months. Go Bruins!

    In your opinion, is the Pac-12 closing the gap with the SEC? Seems like the Pac-12 is getting more recognition by the major outlets. If you made an all-star roster of SEC and Pac-12 players, what would your starting rosters be? Who wins the game?

  • Bruin 34

    Did you read the tweet by Herbstreit saying that Texas should go after Mora? Is the administration dedicated enough to support Mora and his vision for the future of UCLA football? I think next year we have a top 5 team and are in prime position to be the first playoff team to win the first ever “legitimate” National Championship. Your thoughts?

    • Joe Blow

      Laughable

      • LTEfan

        Which part?

        • Joe Blow

          Having a legitimate NC team and Top 5.

          • LTEfan

            Hundley would have to stay another season in order for UCLA to contend for the top 5. I expect him to leave for the NFL. Barr will be gone. So, it does sound unrealistic to me.

          • Joe Blow

            Total agreement. Even if Brett stays, the line will need to improve…as will his passing. Seems a little rattled when pressured.

          • LTEfan

            Yeah, and the other point Bruins fans (me included) should not overlook is that to be top 5 would require jumping over Oregon and Stanford (at least one of them, for sure). Mora is 0-4 against them. I think he has done a great job, but UCLA just isn’t at the level of Oregon and Stanford, as Jack has pointed out several times.

          • Joe Blow

            Agree

          • 92104bruinfan

            This is a loaded QB class for the 2014 NFL draft. Unless BH has a rock solid 1st round projection in hand, he should stay for his junior year. The O-line should be stronger and more mature, Oregon/Stanford/USC all at the RB, and another year to fine tune his mechanics & decision-making which aren’t bad as they are now. BH very well could have a realistic crack at being a Top 10 pick come 2015 NFL draft. Go Bruins!

          • LTEfan

            I hope you are right about Hundley. He has 3 or 4 games left to play before his NFL draft resume will be ready for evaluation.

          • Guest

            The biggest factor in that this year was the Offensive Line meltdown. If (big if) Sua-Fila stays, the OL will be a huge strength next year. Heck, I would not put it past this year’s squad to win a rematch with either of those teams this year.

          • HeySUCs

            Little Joey Latent. Acting tiresome for attention again. I’m willing bet LJL that UCLA’s FB team will be NCs long before FGCSUC wins a NC in BB. Think about that Joey Latent, while you finish your sign spinning shift in front of the 99 cent store.

          • Joe Blow

            I DON’T CARE about BBt. You haven’t won a thing in FB since ’54. Not going to happen now. You, like a lot of ucla dopes, jus yap yap yap.

          • HeySUCs

            Same song, fiftieth verse. Spin that sign Joey.

          • Joe Blow

      Until the “playoff” includes all conference champs (fill in the gaps with whomever’s rankings), it’s not legitimate.

  • gotroy22

    If the gutties lose to ASU and SC and then get blown out in their bowl game will Mora be on the hot seat next season?

    • Mark

      No of course not

    • Joe Blow

      Should be.

  • william Lewis

    Just wondering if there are some potential stars of the future emerging from the crop of guys who are red-shirts this year…who’s looking good? …How does Craig Lee look and others? Thanks!

  • Peter Lay

    1) Is DeShaun Foster coaching for the team? I thought I saw him on the sidelines last game.

    2) Why so many DB’s and WR’s so far in the 2014 class?

    • LTEfan

      Just my two cents on question 2:

      UCLA’s spread offense and up-tempo pace require a lot of WRs, plus at least 3 are leaving (seniors Evans, Bell, G. Mazzone).

      DB has been a position of need for a couple years, it was addressed in part with last year’s recruits. But the spread offenses in the Pac-12 necessitate recruiting a lot of DBs.

      • Peter Lay

        Thanks good insight.

        • Joe Blow

          The guy knows his stuff.

    Two part question: do you subscribe to a premium site, such as Rivals, Scout or 247Sports? If so, any recommendation?

    What is Ucla’s standard policy when a player gets arrested?

    • Joe Blow

      Suspend and do nothing.

      • LTEfan

        Now, that’s not true. Ask Paul Richardson, Josh Shirley and Shaquelle Richardson. Expelled almost immediately for the theft caught on video. Welcomed with open arms by CU, UW and UofA.

  • Cliff Sakata

    I have Holiday Bowl tickets. What does UCLA need to do to get into the holiday bowl?

    • Joe Blow

      Win and get some of their cheap alumni to buy tickets. Holiday Bowl doesn’t want ‘em. Don’t travel.

      • gotroy22

        Travel? They seem in a big hurry to leave the Coliseum in the 3rd quarter of their bi-annual blowout loss.

  • Pyperkub

    A bit late, but I was wondering if there were any questions to Coach Mora about accepting the holding penalty against Arizona in the 4th quarter, rather than leaving them with 4th and 3. The next play Denker was picked off, but that horrible PI call made it first down. Arizona later scored and got back in the game.

  • Pyperkub

    One more – why is there no ‘Championship Game’ for the Las Vegas Invitational? It’d be nice to see how Alford could do against Mizzou were both teams to make it that far…

    Also, Wondering what recruits will be at the ASU Game.
    Thanks.
