    Can’t say it enough but proud to have this guy as our coach.

    Being 23 already, Xavier really should go to the NFL. He is ready and he probably can’t improve his draft stock that much by coming back. And as good as Xavier is, UCLA has brought in many blue chip OL recruits and they need to play. Hundley certainly could improve by playing 1 more season in college. Bruins fans have to hope the draft experts do not forecast him going in the top half of the first round. If he is looking at late first round, he might come back. Will keep fingers crossed.

      In further consideration, I think you are right. Xavier is as good as he can be at the college level. So he should graduate from UCLA Football and enter the draft. He can then make millions in the job UCLA trained him for.

      Hundley needs another year of seasoning. I do not believe he is ready for the NFL.

    How can you not wanna play for Mora and this staff? He has shown he cares about his kids and the future of UCLA football. Agree with you Cliff! Go Bruins!

    Hundley should stay, X should go get his $$ in the pros.

    Even if the start date for construction is still unknown, is there an estimate on how long it will take to build the football facility once they put shovels in the ground?
