UCLA links: Jedd Fisch and the new normal

The UCLA that Jedd Fisch knows has Jim Mora at the head coach position, Tom Bradley at defensive coordinator and Fisch at offensive coordinator. One critical piece has been missing for the past three weeks and it hasn’t felt normal since Mora was fired.

Despite the emotional end to their regular season, Fisch is focused on preparing the Bruins for their final game on Dec. 26 in Phoenix.

“We’ll do everything we can to be fully prepared and ready and put our absolute best foot forward for a great (bowl) game, but I don’t think normalcy will come back,” Fisch said Thursday. “It’ll just be a new normal starting next year.”

Fisch doesn’t know if he’ll be part of that “new normal” under Chip Kelly, though.

    Is Rosen even playing in the Cactus Bowl? Thought he passed the dutchie to Modster anyway. We got this. 8-clap!

      I am sure he is playing in CB. Needs to prove the concussions aren’t a threat to his career. Then he is gone. Decision was made for him when Rebholz brought in Kelly.

    Where is our How the Ball Turns update???
    In the last episode, LaVar vowed to construct an interstellar spaceship so his boys could defeat Michael Jordan’s Looney Tunes team. I want to see how that turned out.

      (They lost, and LaVar blamed the artists.)

      Unless I’ve missed something, Lonzo is a self-controlled, decent, hard-working young man. The black sheep of the family.

      I hope it stays that way.
