UCLA Game GIFs: Fan reaction to UCLA’s loss to Arizona

When Khalil Tate ran for a 45-yard touchdown on the fourth play of the game, it was clear that the UCLA defense was in for a long night. Tate rolled up 230 rushing yards on Saturday to help the Wildcats to a 47-30 win over the Bruins. Here is fan reaction to UCLA’s third loss of the year:

    Given Oregon’s lack of backup QB talent, after next week, I don’t see a winnable game on the schedule. 4-6 wins tops. Annual regression. It’s time to move on with this staff. Hopefully Mora will do the right thing and resign and give back the buyout.

    • 88 Straight

      Total regression, particularly on D. Rosen has to take too many chances because the D can’t stop a runny nose. 4 wins top, IMO. 3 certain losses and 3 that could go either way.

      • JustOwns

        88, let’s be positive; we should give JimmyBall the benefit of doubt and project/hope for a 5 – 7 season.

        That one win improvement over 2016’s total will prompt DG to make sure Mora doesn’t leave, and extend Mora’s contract 5 years and up the buyout $$$$$$ amount.

        • Coach Thom

          DG won’t fire Coach Jim until the contract is up. But who will want to take over the reins when Coach Jim is history? UCLA has nothing positive to offer an established, successful HC. We have an endemic issue with athletics at UCLA, and it won’t change until the chancellor resigns.

          • JustOwns

            There are several options available but require UCLA’s Administration to reorganize its FB operations.

            1) UCLA must hire an experienced VP of FB operations whose sole focus is UCLA Div. 1 FB success. This VP could and would make life easier for the next UCLA FBHC and prevent DG from making another horrendous FB program mistake.

            2) In the wake of identified serious lifetime medical complications associated with FB, UCLA could, w/o much damage to its image, abandon FB, except for intercollegiate flag FB. UCLA will never be simply identified by its FB team success a la bozo u.

          • Coach Thom

            Sound reasoning, JustOwns. My heart ❣ fluttered when you mentioned Troy. He’s smart, experienced, and loves UCLA. He also might have a list of potential HCs and position coaches who would be eager to take on the challenge of UCLA football.

          • JustOwns

            Aikman speaks better football than DG.

          • EncinitasBruin

            How friggin’ cool would it be for Troy Aikman to play a significant role in the future of UCLA football.

          • j metaphor

            When you give the VP the task of competing in Div 1 football, do you also let him cheat?
            Unless the FBI cleans up basketball then turns to football, that’s what it takes.
            I’m not on board.

          • j metaphor

            We have money, Thom and now we have a world class football center in the best part of LA.
            JM can’t pick assistant coaches and that finally killed him (yes, he is done)

    • Pudly76

      When has he done the right thing, on or off the field?

    • EncinitasBruin

      Even though it’s at the RB, I bet we will be the underdog vs Oregon. Don’t see us being favored in any of our remaining six games.

    • Pete

      If I was Mora I would say screw all you guys. Guerrero was dumb enough to give me a extension and a big buyout. Bite me!

    • j metaphor

      He’s not going to give back contract money because we don’t like his results. What is he going to do after this? Probably something that pays half or less than what he’s getting now.

  • EncinitasBruin

    So they have Oregon (home), Washington (away), Utah (away), ASU (h), USC (a), and Cal (h). Realistic would be 2-4 (beating ASU and mAybe Cal), best case is 3-3 (upsetting someone). But 1-5 is not unrealistic, as Cal just beat WSU. The “easy” part of their schedule is over. Also, Look how Helton and the SC staff have taken a decimated SC team and coached the young guys up. That inexperienced OL has gotten way better right before our eyes. That kind of growth doesn’t happen under Mora teams.

    • 88 Straight

      ASU just beat Washington. Cal just beat WSU. Both teams have less talent than UCLA. They are being coached up. The Bruins are being coached down.

      Neither 1-5 or 0-6 would be all that surprising for the last 6 games. What a waste of a good QB.

      • EncinitasBruin

        That’s true. As should happen, teams like Cal and ASU are progressing as the season moves along, while the Bruins regress. So obvious we have major coaching deficits. To consistently land top 20 recruiting classes and have one of the very worst defenses in FBS? Zero excuses for Mora, Bradley and Co.

        • JustOwns

          I am shocked, EB gets off the well adjusted. let’s wait and see fence and actually criticizes the failure of UCLA FB 3 years after JimmyBall’s incompetence was clearly advertised.

          Somewhere pigs are flying.

          • EncinitasBruin

            Ha! Please tell me wife you think I am well adjusted… Actually, I’m been pretty ambivalent about CJM after last year’s dismal showing.

          • 88 Straight

            Owns, EB’s a good guy and an optimist. I tend toward the optimistic side of things as well but it’s very obvious at this time. No need to jump on a fellow Bruin, IMO. We all want the same things. Let the Trojans eat their own young. We don’t need to become as negative as Laker Fraud, but he’s no Bruin in my book.

          • JustOwns

            Come on 88, I gave EB half-assed, wedgie, big deal. EB’s taken less offense than you. Quit trying to be a bottle of tequila.

          • 88 Straight

            Fair enough. Just don’t want to see Bruins turn into Trogans.

  • Tyler Durden

    This hold your gap bend but don’t break defense is not working. Big plays are being given up regardless. Put more pressure on the QB with stunts. College QBs are prone to make mistakes when people are in their face.
