The losing streak has gone on for so long that Takkarist McKinley can barely remember how many consecutive times he’s walked out of a stadium after a loss now.

Three times, he’s reminded. And four of the last five.

“We’ve just got to find a way just to win,” he responded Saturday after UCLA’s 52-45 loss to Utah at the Rose Bowl. “No excuses.”

Time is running out on UCLA’s season after another conference loss, this time an extra costly loss to a divisional opponent. By design, UCLA’s running game disappeared fully from the offense Saturday. The defense gave up a school record amount of rushing yards.

The Bruins are now 3-5 overall and 1-4 in Pac-12 play. Forget a shot at the Pac-12 championship. They need to win three of their last four to just earn bowl eligibility now.

    Mora lied to us about the running game. He didn’t just tweek it, he eliminated it. Once again he demonstrated he simply does not know how to run a competitive football program. He also demonstrated you cannot have a one dimensional offense and expect to win. Faful played a great game considering his lack of game experience but the coaches put too pressure on him by putting the entire game in his hands. Time to start the effort to replace Mora. He cannot be relied upon to take us where we deserve to be.

      Where is that !1954?

      • 88 Straight

        That would be correct, 1954. We don’t run from that. That is our record for better or worse. Tell me, how many times has SC been on probation? More than any other school not named SMU. That is your record for better or worse as well.

        • DMH63

          Why bring up probation ? When Ucla has been hit harder than USC and is considered by many around the country as a dirty athletic program! I was only stating the obvious, the football program only came to life in Mora’s first two years, while USC sat on what will be a reversed action once they file a lawsuit against the NCAA . It is also publicly known the NCAA had penalized USC without cause. Want to try again ?

          • 88 Straight

            In what fantasy world has UCLA been hit harder than SC? SC is the most sanctioned football program in the country other than SMU. Look it up. You come here to talk smack about UCLA’s lone title in 1954 then deal with your own checkered history or limp back over to Wolf.

          • DMH63

            Basketball guru.. Lol.. You changed the subject, deal with reality.. Maybe UCLA will hire Fresno States recently fired head football coach..He was fired this morning!

          • 88 Straight

            Nice try. Our BB team has been sanctioned far less than your football team. Both Wooden and McKay were given passes by the NCAA. Their successors were magically found guilty!

    Remember what the late great Jim Healy said? “Bad teams lose close games!” And remember what Sir Charles Barkley said? “Bad team man, we’ve got a bad bleepin team!” Your brilliant Athletic Director ran off your loyal season ticket holders and the alumni yell leader that would have kept your spirits up through this bad season. Now you have nothing but empty seats and a morgue like atmosphere at your games to look forward too before your annual beating by the Trojans.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Okay Mr. politically correct, please explain to everyone here a direct quote from gotroy22 nine months ago on an article on SPECTATOR.CO.UK

            “I am sick of you Muslims and your Taqiyya.​”

            Are you sick of all Muslims?
            Please, elaborate

          • gotroy22

            You violated our truce intentionally, Kurt Waldheim Jr. I knew you would look for a pretext to do it because you are a lying lib like your hero Hillary.

          • gotroy22

            “Yes those Jews have big noses, don’t they, Kurt Waldheim Jr. Next you will tell us he is stingy.”- That is a favorite quote of mine reacting to your antisemitic attacks on the UCLA quarterback.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            For the record, I made a dumb internet comment joke about Josh Rosen after he won an award last season saying “The vote was close but Rosen won by a nose”
            THAT WAS THE EXTENT OF IT
            Anything else is was read into it by our strangely obsessed pal gotroy22.

            So what about your comments about how you feel about Muslims, troy? That was you who said it so please explain yourself since you have zero tolerance for bigotry.

            gotroy22’s comment again:
            “I am sick of you Muslims and your Taqiyya.​”

            I wonder why you didn’t post this quote of mine, Jethrahrah?

            For the record: Jethrahrah has a Jewish problem:

            gotroy22 Jethro G Sabbath • 3 months ago
            You admitted you made an antisemtic comment about Rosen’s nose only a month ago…
            “Jethro G Sabbath gotroy22 • a month ago
            Goo-Goo,
            I have a question for you. You’ve made it abundantly clear that my making a comment about Josh Rosen’s nose unquestionably makes me a Nazi in your mind.”

            Get over yourself 88, Hillary doesn’t want to date you, no matter how many times Bill cheats on her, she’s not going to leave him. Having a crush on her is a waste of energy.

          • 88 Straight

            Nice try, Vladimir. I don’t even like Hillary. But I do hate Trump. Once again you have proven your reading skills. You’re the guy that doesn’t think Putin is a ruthless dictator. Your brain is clearly resistant to knowledge.

          • Cali Man

            I don’t like either but one of them is trying to start a war with Russia and doing everything to piss off their government in addition to blaming them like Trumpty Dumpty, at least he wants to have good relations with them instead of causing them to hate us even more to the point that they want to declare war on our country. They should leave Russia alone which will be a start at having good relations with a country. Stop being the world police and going back to Cold War propoganda like your only argument with SC trolls is bringing up the sanctions although it’s now irrelevant an doesn’t make UCLA better in football. You know how UCLA fans like me can earn bragging rights? By having our team go to the national championship, win the conference championship game, and pounce SC every year, not bring up sanctions from the past.

          • 88 Straight

            Pounce SC? Interesting. And disrespectful SC fans that troll deserve to be educated about their full history. Respectful SC fans like Sam Bam get respectful responses.

            Fans like you don’t attend games. Those of us that have been attending games for 50 years want to win very badly. We support the team and the program. Time to stop acting like you care more. You don’t. And to top it all off, neither of you understand English and how to comprehend anything but the simplest ideas.

          • gotroy22

            You educating anyone on the Clinton Crime Family is great comedy.

            All you Democrats use the same talking point that you don’t like Hillary yet you support her. Hillary was the one with the Russian Reset button because we had been too mean to Putin.Hillary bragged about having a “special relationship ” with Putin and being admitted th Putin’s “inner sanctum”.

            Yes, those men are terrible, but don’t excuse him.

          • 88 Straight

            Predator yes. Rapist? Accused rapist by Broadrick. No charges because she kept changing her story. Abused his power with Lewinsky in the workplace. The others were affairs and it takes two to tango. Flowers was a very willing participant.

            As an FYI, I never voted for Bill because he is a slimeball. His accusers were just as bad and Hastert was worse, IMHO.

          • gotroy22

            You have all the Hillary nuts and s$uts defense down yet you never voted for Bubba? Sorry, you are not credible. Leslie Milwee is NOT as bad as Bubba. Bubba is sick.

            Sorry Troy but the fact is I never voted for Bill. I have voted for candidates of both parties. Unfortunately the Republican Party has moved well to the right in the last decade and alienated many moderates.

  • Sam Bam

    Is Lokeni Toailoa even playing ?

    • JustOwns

      If you haven’t seen him, chances are no. Why waste his talent on this version of Jimmy Ball .

      • Sam Bam

        I thought I remembered hearing he was gonna start the A&M game.

        • JustOwns

          As I recall Sammy, Jimmy Ball was favored to win the Pac-12 South.

          • Sam Bam

            Bradley and Polamalu not looking like they’ve improved their sides of the ball and Jim is ok with not even attempting to run the ball.

          • JustOwns

            I blame two people: Mora, and especially Klemm.

            Utah opened major holes in Jimmy Ball’s D/Line. It’s seems to me if JB wants to run they should copy Utah’s O/Line blocking schemes. All Klemm has to do is check available 2016 Utah film.

            But Mora thinks having an inexperienced B/U QB throw 70 times is better.

          • Sam Bam

            1 attempt by a Bruin running back in the 2nd half is just awful. 6 of them were by Faufal. Jim and Kennedy have quit on the ground game.

          • JustOwns

            Can’t agree. UCLA has decent RB’s but no holes to run through. The heart and soul of any FB team is the O/Line. Even OJ needed someone to open holes.

          • Sam Bam

            Yeah, but you have to establish the run to open the pass. Especially in Polamalu’s offense. You have to draw in the defense. That’s his scheme and they’ve abandoned it. I agree with you Starks and Jambo are good backs who need carries.

          • http://amillennialist.blogspot.com Santiago Matamoros

            Passing to them out of the backfield has shown promise, too. (Just not yesterday.)

          • Laker Rod

            Umm…UCLA just passed for 464 yards. It works the other way around. You pass to open up the run these days.

            You can’t pass it’s easy to stack the box against the run.

            These days…it’s difficult for a team to run without a running QB threat.

          • Sam Bam

            Rod you pass 70 times and yards will eventually pile up. He threw 4 interceptions and had two balls that were also dropped by the Utah defense, three if you want to count the hail Mary. This is the sure recipe for disaster.

          • Laker Rod

            I actually think there was nothing wrong with doing this against Utah. If you think UCLA could run the ball on Utah…you’re crazy.

            In addition, UCLA was usually playing from behind which forced them to pass more. Any run play most likely would have just been a wasted play as it has been in the past. Run the ball and it’s now 2nd and 12 and then 3rd and 11.

            The strategy was a good one against Utah. It’s hard to say would the Bruins have stuck with this if the Bruins got the early lead and the UCLA defense played better. I still feel the Bruin offense could have scored in the high 30’s and that should be good enough to win.

            UCLA has been averaging in the low 20’s even with Josh Rosen under the previous stupid run run pass and more ball control offense.

          • Cali Man

            But Richard thinks they should keep running the ball although the RBs don’t gain yards because if they keep doing it, they’re get better. Only thing they’ll get better at is running into brick walls.

          • Laker Rod

            LOL!! Yeah…I remember that. If UCLA just tried running the ball…UCLA probably would have scored just 3 points. Looks like Richard’s gone into hiding again too.

          • 88 Straight

            Based on that, who do you pick to win the NC this year? You’ve been called out and now you hide!! LOL

            Just count the redshirts, find an experienced QB that can run and make your pick.

            I’ve made MY pick which I will share with you once you step up and share with us all the benefits of your great knowledge.

            Or are you going to stay in hiding afraid and soiling your diapers?

          • Laker Rod

            I already told you my pick. It’s the team not starting a true frosh at QB. Now…why don’t YOU pick Alabama who has the true frosh QB you coward.

            Go ahead and contradict yourself. You claim most freshmen should redshirt but here you go again spewing your nonsense.

            You didn’t make any pick you coward. If you made the pick…you would have repeated it right here. We all know you won’t.

          • Cali Man

            That’s why I picked Clemson to win the NC, because they have an experienced dual threat QB

          • Cali Man

            Throwing the ball all of the time and running less running plays have seemed to benefit WSU, they just do screen passes to the RBs if they need a short gain.

            And all of the ranked teams in football or almost all of them have a dual threat QB that is willing to scramble if none of the receivers are open or they are about to be blitzed.

            Examples: DeShaun Watson, Lamar Jackson, JT Barrett, and Jalen Hurts. Heck, even Browning scrambles when necessary.

          • Laker Rod

            It seems to be against WSU…UCLA was so afraid of Falk’s passing…they were not prepared to stop some of their running plays. This same strategy should work for UCLA and Jim Mora even made a comment on it.

            The bottom line…this wide open no huddle offense produces points. UCLA has to score first and fast and put the pressure on the opposing offense and the UCLA defense has to come through.

            If and when UCLA can be up on a team like 24-3…then the UCLA pass rush should be even more potent. UCLA has to continue to step on the gas though but it’s much easier to start mixing in the running plays with a lead. I believe the UCLA coaches had the right idea but a few things threw this off. The kickoff return for TD and the defense collapsing messed things up.

            Since UCLA was losing, Fafaul was pressing a bit and had his turnovers. I seriously wonder how good Fafaul could have been had he gotten first team reps and this was actually like this 6th game or whatever starting or what if he was the stater all last year.

          • gotroy22

            That’s what makes the recruiting of Rosen so curious. Your success was with a Hundley style running quarterback who can take a beating.

          • Cali Man

            And now the Bruins are stuck with a Primadonna QB with a giant ego in Rosen

          • gotroy22

            Did you notice ASU has 4 quarterbacks that can play while the ruins have one? That is simply unacceptable 5 years into a coaching regime.

          • Laker Rod

            But if you watched Josh Rosen in high school he ran the zone read option and he did run the ball in HS. He would run the zone read and keep the ball at times and run up field.

            The problem though was that if you watched Rosen run in high school….he often ran high and through tackles. He was simply bigger than a lot of the smaller high school linebackers and defensive backs.

            I was concerned over this. I said if Rosen tries to run the same way he will get clocked and probably hurt.

            When I looked at Rosen’s size he was simply too skinny and he isn’t at an ideal size even now. His upper body is weak.

            When Drew Olson came to UCLA and he played as a true frosh he was probably around 6’2 185 or 190 and he probably only benched 200 lbs. I watched this guy grow year after year. By his senior year he was around 205 to 210 and he was bench pressing over 300 lbs and you could see the change in his body. He would no longer get pulled down by defensive guys.

            Rosen is simply not ready. Yes…he has a strong arm but that’s it. The problem for UCLA is that the O line cannot hold their blocks long enough for an immobile QB like Josh Rosen at this point.

            The UCLA coaches are doing a better job with Fafaul in moving him around the pocket. Fafaul looks quicker than Rosen also.

            Rosen needed to work on getting bigger stronger and faster. He seems too worried about being an NFL QB. It doesn’t even seem like he wants to run the ball. He just wants to drop back and sling it. UCLA doesn’t have NFL type receivers across the board…hardly any college team does.

            If the coaches want to limit Rosen’s running then Mora has to introduce a wildcat at some point. Luckily UCLA will have 3 redshirt freshman to consider running the zone read option in certain situations. Will Rosen’s ego allow him to sit?

          • gotroy22

            Rosen seems uninterested in increasing his weight and durability to take hits. He’s too busy telling us to vote for corrupt Hillary Clinton.

          • Laker Rod

            On a more serious note…indeed Rosen didn’t seem interested in becoming a better runner. He has added on some weight but not enough and the weight he has added seems to have slowed him down. He seems more immobile this year than last year.

            I’ve been saying before…not many players can add on 10 or 15 lbs in one year and not feel sluggish and maintain that weight. A guy who is 275 to begin with has an easier time with 10 to 15 lbs. A guy who is only around 200 lbs like Rosen….adding 10 to 15 lbs in such a short period of time is much more difficult.

            It takes a lot of training/working out to add 15 lbs of muscle AND being just as fast or faster than before. It takes time.

            The Bruins can’t run. Throwing every play was really their only option, and considering it was only his second game, Fafaul played really well.

            Five turnovers makes it hard to win. (Stopping massive runs up the middle would have helped.)

            What exactly are you blaming Mora and Klemm for? When I ripped both Mora and Klemm pertaining to them playing too many true freshman YOU and dummies like 88Straight tried to defend the coaches and pronounced they were doing the right thing of try to play the best players regardless of class.

            Oh brother…now you blame Mora and Klemm? LOL!!! You blame them for following your own and 88Straight’s stupidity? HA HA HA!!

          • Cali Man

            They can’t make up their minds LR, the one big thing the coaches are doing wrong is playing a ton of true freshman who have giant egos and don’t even try to improve their abilities or try to develop themselves into better players because they think that because they started as a true freshman, that means they are naturally talented and don’t have to worry about anything.

          • JustOwns

            Listen dumbo, UCLA failed to convert a 4th and 1. In fact, the play called lost 2 or 3 yards.

            UCLA did the same thing at Washington State, settling for a STINKING FG instead of punching in from the 1.5 yard line. Had UCLA scored the TD they win by 3points. Instead UCLA lost by 4 points

            Now I don’t give a crap about your incessant claims about Jimmy Ball playing Freshman. BFD. I’ve never complained about Mora use of Freshman and I disagree with your pseudo FB analysis 99 out of a 100 times. You’re not worth a response.

            What I care about eight ball, is UCLA can’t run the FB or win FG games. I blame Mora and Klemm period – here and now, not 2 years ago.

            I think Mora should resign ASAP. He a decent human being but he can’t coach FB.

          • Laker Rod

            Well…like I told you before DUMMY. Maybe UCLA should have had a RUNNING QB. How many times did Hundley bail UCLA out? Wake up.

            When I tried to tell dummies like you and 88Straight that Rosen needs to do more than just PASSING…you numbskulls wouldn’t listen.

            I tried to tell guys like 88Straight that Asianti Woulard was a better choice and Rosen should redshirt. You dummies wouldn’t listen. Mora did exactly what you fools wanted and now you’re complaining about it? LOL!!!

            And of course you didn’t complain about Mora’s use of freshmen….but YOU should have been complaining. It’s obvious you didn’t side with my point. Look at the mess we are in now. It’s because of DUMB fans like YOU and 88Straight and Richard…UCLA is in the mess. Wake up

    • Laker Rod

      Lokeni is mainly playing on special teams. He’s not better than Kenny Young nor Isaako at this point.

      Are you insinuating Lokeni should get playing time or even start as a true freshman?

      Just a reminder…Kenny Young was once promoted to start as a true frosh. Same with Isaako. And you know what…both of them did start as true freshmen. Young I believe started 1 game and Isaako started like 4 games.

      You know what…it didn’t help and it made no difference. If anything both proved they were not ready…in fact…both proved even during their true sophomore years they were not ready.

      I cannot fault Mora and staff too much for playing 1 true frosh LB in 2016. If you look at UCLA’s depth chart they didn’t have too much depth. It’s hard to predict who may get hurt during the season.

      What I don’t like is when UCLA plays multiple true frosh. I believe Mora burned Krys Barnes true frosh year. He is hardly playing.

      Back in 2013, UCLA played all 5 true frosh linebackers in Myles Jack, Deon Hollins, Cameron Judge, Jayon Brown, and Isaako Savaiaena. How exactly has this turned out? This is where the failure of Mora started

      In 2013, out of 25 recruits I believe 19 played as true freshmen. Many of the 2013 recruits are already gone or will be gone after 2016.

      We have fools like 88Straight who condone this stupidity and even promote it but after he sees it backfire he then claims he’s for redshirting the majority of players but has yet to even once criticize Jim Mora for this mess and 88Straight continually tries to provide examples of how this true frosh did well or that one. Dude is just a walking contradiction.

      People say Jim Mora did better with RN’s recruits. Well…most of those guys redshirted. Hundley redshirted. Jake Brendel redshirted. Same with J. Franklin, Fauria, Shaq Evans, Jerry Johnson, Eric Kendricks, Paul Perkins, Datone Jones, Owa Odighizuwa, Keenan Graham, Damien Holmes, Aaron Wallace, Anthony Jefferson, etc.

      • Sam Bam

        I was actually just asking a question. If I wanted to insult you guys I’d ask where Mique was? I live in the Inland Empire so I do try and root and keep up with the Players from the area.

        • 88 Straight

          Little Rodney has one theme and he sticks to that theme like Rain Man. He is spending this life redshirting in the hope he is more successful in the next life.

          • Laker Rod

            88Straight the man of contradictions. Coach Thom says he sides with me on most counts including redshirting. Then the Bozo 88Straight tries to tell Coach Thom he promotes redshirting most freshmen but behind the scenes he’s still arguing for the play of true frosh. LOL!!!

            Walking Contradiction = 88Straight

          • 88 Straight

            Too dumb to understand that you can both play the best player regardless of class and still redshirt most players. For example, Michigan has 5 true freshman listed on their 2-deep. That’s 5 out of 22.

            Since you struggle this, find someone with an IQ over 80 to explain it to you slowly. That rules out Cali Man.

          • Cali Man

            And look at all of the guys who who started their true freshman year and declined every season: Deon Hollins, Jayon Brown, Matt Dickerson, Kenny Young, Soso Jamabo, JJ Molson, and Austin Kent. All haven’t done much and have regressed. Brown and Young have a hard time trying to figure out how to sack a QB, Molson and Kent have dead legs, Hollins is a lost cause, Meadors hasn’t done squat, and Jamabo is running into brick walls.

            The better players seemed to be the ones that redshirted like Evans, Kendricks, Fauria, Jones, Jefferson and Odigizuwa.

            But fans like 88 thinks that the true freshman guys are sometimes the best guys that should play when in reality, it’s the ones you overlook or don’t expect to be really good because you are so in love with the highly regarded and ranked HS football recruits.

          • 88 Straight

            Sometimes they are. Most times they are not. Quite simple really.

            So, you NEVER think a freshman is better than an older player? You guys are stuck on a very simple concept. The best player should play. If the coaches have done their job developing players, it should be that the older player will be better, but not always. Playing the best player is fully consistent with playing the best player.

            If you don’t understand, find someone with better reading comprehension. It’s definitely beyond Rodney.

          • Cali Man

            Name one true freshman or player that started as true freshman that is doing well and gets better every year? Still waiting for Brown and Young to pile on some sacks or suppressing running backs like it’s a piece of cake. Hollins has been non existant, and Dickerson seems to be getting pushed back by ever O-lineman he takes on. Meadors has still yet to impress me and Judge is just another body on defense.

          • 88 Straight

            Eddie Vanderdoes.

            UCLA has the top rated pass defense in the conference allowing only a 50% completion rate. I guess that doesn’t impress you.

          • Cali Man

            Where are the sacks? The run stopping? Forcing turnovers? Because last time I checked, Joe Williams, McCaffery, and the other running backs they have took on seem to have no problem running through him.

          • 88 Straight

            He is a run stopper. One of the best. Not that you would notice.

          • Cali Man

            So they don’t have a DT that isn’t a pass stopper and sacks? Great… because Ankou is a run stopper too.

          • gotroy22

            He held Williams to only about 330 yards rushing. Quite the run stopper. Kind of like Hillary stopping terrorism around the world.

          • gotroy22

            Where was Vanderdoes Saturday? The ruin DL was a sieve. You are as deluded about football as you are about the Clinton Crime Family

          • 88 Straight

            Yeah, it’s all on Vanderdoes Saturday. I remember UCLA running around and through SC when SC had Leonard Williams. One player can’t do it alone. And for a guy to run for that many yards it is a team failure.

            Not deluded about the Clintons nor am I deluded about Trump as a fraud, a liar, and on down the line. Can’t wait to see what happens to your boy on 11/8. It will be the ultimate reality show for that scary clown.

          • gotroy22

            Nobody ran on USC for 330 yards when Leonard Williams was at USC even though the coaching situation was in chaos.

            You deluded knee-pad wearing Clinton interns love the lawless Clintons. Unfortunately their return to power is not a meaningless athletic event. They would finish the destruction of America that your hero Obama has started. You are too much of a Kool-aid drinking cultist to realize it.

            And you sure do like the bend the truth to try and sway something your way. You do realize that the majority of Michigan’s STARTERS are upper classmen correct? Harbaugh is only is his 2nd year also.

            Are you looking at the ourlads website? This site for Michigan has 13 starters on offense and 12 on defense. This is due to the multiple formations. Nickelback for defense and also 3 WR formation and two RB’s etc.

            For defense…there are 11 seniors and 1 RJr listed as the STARTERS.

            For offense there are 8 seniors 4 juniors and 1 sophomore.

            As for your true freshmen a couple are on the O line and how teams shuffle the O line doesn’t mean those guys are necessarily in the rotation.

            Show us where this true freshman is starting for Michigan or playing heavy minutes and has alot of stats.

          • 88 Straight

            Of course it SHOULD be the older player, but that isn’t always the case, now is it junior. And if it isn’t the older player, you play the younger and BETTER player….as in “play the best player regardless of class”

        Was it Edgerrin James’s son?

        • Laker Rod

          You know….the 2016 performance was way worse.

          In 1998, UCLA had two true frosh D linemen starting in Ken Kocher and Anthony Fletcher and the other guy was a walkon Kory Lombard. UCLA also had true frosh Robert Thomas at linebacker with a big cast on his hand.

          I think UCLA had Ryan Nece also who was a redshirt frosh and Marques Anderson who was a true frosh. We had like 5 freshmen on defense.

          On top of this UCLA lost it’s best defensive player in Brendon Ayanbadejo.

          I really don’t know what the heck happened against Utah. There are no excuses. It’s alarming and a big concern. I’m not sold on Bradley at all.

  • DMH63

    Lol..Wrong again! Klemm Jr!

  • jameskatt

    Face it, UCLA this year simply has a completely bad offensive line. It is the worse in the nation. It can’t blow out holes like it did last year. This is why UCLA has the worse running game in the nation.

    Something is seriously wrong with Adrian Klemm. He is in charge of both the offensive linemen and the running backs.

    • Laker Rod

      The switch in the system was the biggest failure. Klemm did just fine in the rushing game when UCLA was running the Nzone system with a running QB.

      The pass protection issues have been much better under more veteran O linemen.

      I do blame Klemm for playing too many true freshmen. We probably would have been a lot better off had Benenoch and Redmond returned for the redshirt junior years. But even if the UCLA O line struggled….for sure we wouldn’t have had to look any further than the new offense. Losing only Jake Brendel wouldn’t have caused this mess.

      • 88 Straight

        Sorry Rodney, but you may want to look back at our 3rd down conversion %. Also, please refresh your memory as to your own words that we “could not run the ball at will” last year. The numbers don’t tell the story. In crucial 3rd and short situations we simply could not count on running the ball to get a 1st down. We cannot run the ball on any down this year.

        • Laker Rod

          You don’t read very well do you. I said Klemm did just fine rushing with a RUNNING QB. Pay attention. Rosen obviously can’t run thanks to dummies like you whom originally said he could but then later changed his mind and said he couldn’t. YOU are the FOOL who wanted Rosen to play as a true frosh. You even claimed UCLA could possibly win a conference championship with true frosh Rosen. LOL!!! Then you backpedaled and said UCLA had nobody else better. You claimed if UCLA didn’t play Rosen UCLA would have ended up like 2-10. LOL!

          Wake up. You’re clueless as usual.

      • Pasadena Trojan

        Sir, with due respect, ucla’s olne coach and the iffensive coordinator needed to sit down and devise blocking assignments for the o linemen for each play. I am sure they did. Now it comes down to coaching and getting them to fire off the ball.

        • Pasadena Trojan

          On the 4th and two play where the running back got knocked back for a two yard loss, that was coaching, execution, and how badley the o line wanted it. It is in Klem.

          • Laker Rod

            How do you give the offensive coordinator a pass? In the past if it was 4th and 2….Hundley was often a threat to run and UCLA often converted. Klemm was still the O line coach.

            Please remember….UCLA ran the ball on 4th and 2 in a spread formation also.. The defense had to stay spread out.

            If you’re in a power formation with a tight end and fullback…everything is much tighter horizontally. It’s much easier for a defense to send a run blitzer in.

            If you’re really a Trojan fan…have you not noticed the difference Darnold makes over Browne? Darnold is way more mobile and is a big threat to run 20 yards downfield.

            Not many offensive lines in college football these days can run the ball at will in the power I formation. They can do it against crummy defenses but they cannot do it consistently.

          • Pasadena Trojan

            Yes, I’m a Trojan fan, yes Darnold has changed USC’s offense, and Palamalu is a power running back from Mayer Dei, USC, and in the pros. In the power game it is not necessarily horizontal, but movement or vertical to push forward. U can run the power with no tight ends, one fullback, two full backs, even three fullback, change it up with an unbalance line, and two to three tight ends. But when u play

          • Pasadena Trojan

            When u play power, then u must exert ur will upon the opposing team. It is a matter of who wants it more between the offense and defense

        • Laker Rod

          What you are recommending is a long term solution. You can’t make these wholesale changes in such a short period of time. To fully blame Klemm for this year is just plain wrong.

          • Pasadena Trojan

            The changes and blocking schemes should have been made in February and implemented in spring ball. U can do about five plays between now and your next game

    So many uneducated fans like 88Straight were ready to pounce on Fafaul. Guys like Richard were promoting using a true frosh QB.

    We have dummies like 88Straight who claimed that without Rosen last year UCLA would have gone 2-10. LOL!!!

    This guy is so full of nonsense. He also thinks Jake Browning only has 1 rushing TD this year when he clearly has 4 rushing TD’s. He refuses to believe on how a running QB how help a team’s rushing attack.

    • Pasadena Trojan

      In my opinion, even with aRosen, ucla loses due the offensive line. Without a ground game, Utah would have gone after the qb and not respect ucla’s running game. Utah would have hoped to put enough pressure on Rosen to where he would make mistakes. If Utah knocks out Risen then the second stringer comes in. When that happens the d line will want to do the same thing. If both abs are injured, then ucla is in trouble

      • Laker Rod

        That was my whole point in making the statement. Rosen would NOT have made the difference. We have some FOOLS on this board…mainly 88Straight who thinks Josh Rosen is GOD and who can do no wrong. This dummy 88Straight claimed Josh Rosen could win UCLA a conference championship as a true freshman before the season started and that if UCLA didn’t play Rosen last year…the team would have went 2-10 vs 8-5.

        Seeing the way Fafaul is playing this year…proves my point yet again to the dummy 88Straight that there is no way the UCLA team would have went 2-10 last year.

        I’m already convinced that the best thing what UCLA could have done last year was redshirt Josh Rosen. UCLA should have kept Asianti Woulard and between him and Jerry N. or Fafaul…they could have handled the offense last year. They could have even handled the offense THIS year too while Rosen still got bigger and stronger and more mobile.

        In the end…this is what it was going to take for UCLA to get to the next level. Jim Mora has screwed all of this up now and UCLA has dumb fans like 88Straight and another poster Richard to thank for this.

          Rosen, Huntley, Fafu, nor anybody else can play an without injury or poor performance because of the o line. It doesn’t matter if you run spread, wishbone, or power, without a line , the offense doesn’t go. Quite frankly, I even think Rosen hinders ucla. In my opinion he seems slow compared to other PAC 12 qbs. He is a pocket passer who needs full protection. If not, he makes mistakes. He needs time in the pocket. Like I said, it is my opinion

          • Laker Rod

            Here is my point on the O line. Running an Nzone system allows you to get away with an inexperienced not very strong O line personnel. The offense can run at a certain level of efficiency and scoring.

            The problem with the Nzone is that it has certain limitations/ceillings. Most teams run a hybrid spread and at times under center.

            And as far as the offensive line personnel goes…it’s not easy for UCLA to recruit top linemen both on offense and defense and it’s even harder for UCLA to get JC transfers.

            So one of my constant recommendations is that UCLA get plenty of linemen and REDSHIRT them.

            We have bozos like 88Straight who promotes playing true freshmen. UCLA is in the mess we are in now because two guys in Benenoch and Redmond left after only playing 3 years. They were both built more specifically for power rushing.

            Benenoch wasn’t very good in pass blocking but he was a better run blocker at tackle than Kolton Miller was/is.

            And I don’t disagree with your observations pertaining to Josh Rosen. He’s made himself into only a pocket passer. Perhaps the coaches Mora and KP wanted it this way too. Well..they were wrong.

            Just remember…Josh Rosen ran the Nzone spread system in high school and he indeed ran the ball.

            Seems all Josh Rosen cares about is simply becoming an NFL QB. All Mora did was buy into this and prepped his team for this. All for one guy. What a disaster.

          • Pasadena Trojan

            The question for ucla is to identify who they are. They are coming from a spread to power. How does ucla cope with this. Next question more importantly for your team is, to build for next year and turn practices and games into a stepping stone to make themselves better for next year. Coaches need to open up competition even with the ability job. No ones job is secure. U grade every play and demand from the players better play. In my opinion, ucla is falling into a black hole.

          • Pasadena Trojan

            Coaches and players need to determine what offense they want and run it. Players and coaches need to hold each other accountable for every play and error

          • Laker Rod

            I believe Jim Mora is already backpedaling on the power rushing. He realizes that he still needs to keep quite a bit of the spread offense.

            I’m pretty sure Jim Mora is going to tell Josh Rosen also…he needs to work out hard this off season. Not just getting stronger but even more mobile. Mora also needs to find another option also at QB from a running QB standpoint and he will have that in either Dymond Lee or Modster. Lynch is a decent runner also from what I have heard.

            As far as the O line goes…we return 4 to 5 to 6 starters. They obviously need to get bigger and stronger and learn how to run block better. UCLA needs some pulling offensive guards also.

  • Coach Thom

    After sitting through a replay of Saturday’s game, I’ve come away with a few somewhat positive conclusions. 1. Utah’s Oline was scheming to our aggression. By allowing our front four some penetration, it was easy for the guards and tackles to pull and open massive holes for the RB. Our Dlinemen were committed and engaged, leaving our LBs to be sitting ducks for Utah’s monsters. I’m alarmed that Coach Tom didn’t adjust to that. The adjustment should have been executed by the end of the first quarter. I’m sure that Coach Tom will not allow that to happen again. This will be a learning experience for the Defensive staff. On a more positive note, Takk McKinley had an All-American game. What an impressive player that man is. 2. Our offense actually fired and put up an explosion of points. For the most part, our receivers ran great routes and hung on to the rock. 3. The Oline pass-blocked well. Fafaul was cool and made some excellent throws. 4. No more power running game. Time now for some RB screens and draw plays to counter the blitz/rush. I’m sure Coach Kennedy will make the proper adjustments. 5. The pieces will come together in time for the USC and Cal games. That’s what I’m now salivating over. Go Bruins.

    You mean like Hillary paid hired goons to disrupt the 1st Amendment right of citizens to peaceably assemble? Glad you have such a fine sense of morality.

    ruin libs don’t care about the Clinton Crime Family violating the laws of the land.

  • gotroy22

    I bet it really bothered you that Hillary bribed an FBI agent assigned to investigate her. But your kind will flee from such breaking news.

            Antisemitic old Nazis like you Kurt Waldheim Jr. should know when to quit. Instead you wait until the allies are knocking on the bunker door.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            You should quit. Please explain to everyone here your thoughts when you had this conversation on the Business Insider comments section 3 years ago

            “And when 30 of them live in a house meant for 4 people- rent is less that $100 a month.” – gotroy22

            “When I was a kid, the houses these wetbacks live in, were referred to as starter houses for young married couples. Now, the neighborhoods these houses are in are referred to as the barrio. Illegal immigration is nothing less than a cancer to American society.​” – 2Honest

            30 of who? And why didn’t you call out 2Honest for his slur or do you agree with him?

            I have plenty more, troy. Are you sure you want to keep playing?

            I could paste this into the latest entry on Wolf’s blog for everyone to see.

          • gotroy22

            You should honor our agreement or I can keep printing out interesting posts like this;

            Did you or Donald Trump make antisemitic comments about Jews having big noses? According to my sources it was you, Kurt Waldheim Jr. Meanwhile Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law are Jewish, that’s quite an antisemitic tendency.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Print your bizarre ramblings all you want.

            Amazing that you don’t even attempt to deny your comment about Mexicans living 30 to a house. That must be how you really feel.

          • gotroy22

            You live in an alternative reality. Come to any town in Southern or Central California and you will see it for yourself. You consider describing the Reconquista to be a slur.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Nice justification!

          • gotroy22

            The truth is foreign to your kind.

          • gotroy22

            The agreement was to leave each other alone and you couldn’t handle that.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Here’s the agreement:

            “Alternatively, you could do this: Drop your silly crusade and volatile accusations and we can laugh it off as a little ribbing and move on.
            If you want to take it to the next round, I have plenty of material and I’m not bluffing.
            Don’t bother trying to find any more shocking material from me because it doesn’t exist. Nothing was deleted because it never happened in the first place.

            FYI, I think this whole thing is a ridiculous pursuit and truly hope it is over.

            The ball is in your court…

            I simply asked your opinion about Donald Trump and you went right back to your Kurt Waldheim shtick.”

          • gotroy22

            If you want to return to the agreement, then no contact of any kind between us. Zip, nada, nothing. Okay?

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            I have a lot more ammunition and you have nothing on me. I also know that our back and forth on this thread has gone on with virtually no exposure. If I took it to Wolf’s blog many more people would be exposed to your past comments.

            I have done nothing more than make a dumb joke and ask honest questions about some of your views. You have repeatedly called me a an anti-Semite which I am not.
            If you admit you took it to far, I’ll drop it and go with no further contact.

          • gotroy22

            OK, deal.

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Deal

  • Laker Rod

    I don’t have name a team. Explain why a team needs to be named per you.

    I already told you my point. We are debating about philosophies. You claim play the best player regardless of class. Face it. You don’t believe in redshirting and you know it. You’re a flat out liar on this. You promote the play of true freshman.

    I told you. I am for redshirting. I still stay Josh Rosen should have redshirted and I was right. Look at where this UCLA team is now. How good does Josh Rosen look for even 2017? Alot of the mystique and promise seems to be dwindling real fast. Will he even be healthy in 2017? Can he last the entire season?

    So I say again. The team that will win the BCS championship is the team who is NOT playing the true frosh. You got it? I’m not even picking the No 1 team in the nation right now which is Alabama. You are GUTLESS to even pick them at this point. What are YOU afraid of? YOU are the one that feels a “team” needs to be picked.

    You’re a joke.

  • Laker Rod

    Switching the subject? This topic was about how Fafaul is doing this year. YOU were ready to pounce on him and you know it. You don’t even deny it. Shows what a FOOL you are.

    You were WRONG about Browning only having 1 TD for 2016 also. What a tool.

    It’s fun making you look foolish. You will never live it down. You claimed Josh Rosen true frosh could possibly win a conference championship for UCLA. LOL!!! Shows how dumb you are.

    • gotroy22

      That Clinton intern is a fool but sadly doesn’t know it.

  • gotroy22

    It’s proven you are a Clinton intern but are too bashful to admit it.

  • Laker Rod

    Can’t admit your error as usual. Klemm did just fine rushing with a RUNNING QB in Hundley.

    We stink in short yardage situations now because our O line personnel was never recruited/developed for smash mouth football dummy. For you to blame only Klemm shows you know nothing as usual.

    Face it. You cannot get yourself to blame KP for any of this because you’re the dummy who wanted inexperienced KP to begin with.

    You can’t get anything right.

  • Laker Rod

    Yup…it’s proven you always switch the subject when you are stuck.

    You were WRONG claiming Browning only had 1 TD for 2016. LOL!! You can’t get anything right.

    You don’t even claim and even try to dispute if Rosen played instead of Fafaul that UCLA would have won. NOBODY has. We have Pasadena Trojan agreeing with me that Rosen wouldn’t have made a difference.

    I told you we should have redshirted Josh Rosen. Look at this mess we are in now. We have dummies like YOU to thank.

    Do us a favor…shut up already with any recommendations. You’ve proven what a FOOL you are and you know NOTHING about college football.

    You have been WRONG on EVERYTHING.

  • Laker Rod

    LOL!!! You’re the one who keeps demanding me to pick a team and you can’t even explain why. LOL!!!

  • Laker Rod

    Changing the subject yet again. Always back to your won’t pick a team. LOL!! You can’t even explain why picking a team is necessary.

    In the meantime you can’t even admit you were WRONG. Klemm did just fine rushing with a RUNNING QB.

    Face it. You are stuck. You’re the dummy who claimed Rosen doesn’t need to run. You claimed UCLA needs to run a pro offense. You’re the one who wanted inexperienced Klemm.

    EVERYTHING has blown up in your face. Your face is beyond repair based on how many times things have blown up on you. LOL!

  • Laker Rod

    You were WRONG. You claimed Browning only had TD in 2016. LOL!!! What a LIAR. All you do is LIE to cover up your stupidity.

    You have yet to explain why picking a team is necessary. LOL!!

    You’re the one who promotes the play of true freshman you dummy.

  • Laker Rod

    Changing the subject as usual. You were WRONG. Admit it. What a dummy you are. You actually thought Browning only had 1 TD in 2016. Proves you don’t even watch the games or follow any highlights. LOL!!

    You can’t even answer why it is necessary to pick a specific team. LOL!!! You keep insisting on somebody else picking a team and you can’t even do it yourself. COWARD!

    The only getting mocked is YOU. I called you out related to Myles Jack. I even told you getting ready to eat crow. You LOST.

    I even told you UCLA would lose it’s 1st 2 of 3 conference games last year. I even told you Josh Rosen and UCLA were not winning a conference championship in 2015. I even told you if it came down to UCLA vs USC for the Pac-12 South…UCLA would NOT win.

    You’ve been clobbered so badly you’re too chicken to make a prediction on anything these days.

    You’re a joke. It’s proven.

  • Laker Rod

    Nothing better to respond with as usual from yourself. You’re a joke.

  • Laker Rod

    LOL!!! What kind of TOOL thinks Browning only has 1 TD in 2016.

    This one ranks right near the bottom for you as usual.

    Tell us which is more HUMILIATING

    A. You wanting KP as OC
    B. You betting Myles Jack would be a 1st rounder
    C. You claiming Josh Rosen true frosh could possibly win UCLA a conference championship
    D. You claiming Browning only had 1 rushing TD in 2016.
    E. All of the above.

    LOL!!!

  • Laker Rod

    I did make a pick. I have way more guts than you. I said the team that will win the BCS championship is the one not playing a true frosh.

    You are GUTLESS. You can’t even pick Alabama you wimp.

  • Laker Rod

    You’re the dummy who condones the play of true freshman and also that of QB’s. The No 1 ranked team in the nation and the team who won the BCS championship last year is playing a true frosh QB dummy. You’re a COWARD in that you can’t even pick them.

    I already told you. Alabama is NOT winning the BCS championship this year. You won’t even bet me related to Alabama. You’re gutless.

    It’s time for YOU to put up or shut up COWARD.

  • Laker Rod

    LOL!!! Calm down DUMMY. I can see you pounding your keyboard now like a dumb gorilla.

    So explain to us exactly on how you thought Browning only has 1 rushing TD in 2016. HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Laker Rod

    Explain why only 1 team. This is how stupid you are. Anybody picking a team right is simply plain lucky. This is what you don’t get.

    We are arguing philosophies. You condone the play of true freshmen. YOU LIED and you obviously don’t believe in REDSHIRTING.

    Accordingly, if you’re so confident in they play of true freshmen and young guys playing….then you should of course be picking team who are supposedly playing the best players regardless of class. Remember that?

    So now…go ahead and state it. Tell us all which teams are playing true frosh QB’s or have quite a few other true freshmen starting. Go ahead and list several teams dummy.

    You can’t even pick Alabama right now you freakin’ wimp.

  • Laker Rod

    LOL!! COWARD

  • Laker Rod

    LOL!!! Let that anger burn. HA HA HA!

    Can”t answer? Come on. Explain how you thought Browning only had 1 rushing TD in 2016. LOL!!!

  • Laker Rod

    Sure we are arguing philosophies you dummy. That’s the majority of what are debates are about. You promote true freshmen playing and I promote redshirting. It’s that plain and simple DUMMY.

    You’re just switching the subject as usual. YOU are dummy who constantly keeps bringing up picking a “TEAM” like it means something. I’ve asked you like over 10 times already.

    EXPLAIN the purpose of picking a TEAM. You can’t. DUMMY.
