Head coach Jim Mora said he is not ruling out Josh Rosen for Saturday against Washington State. He said Rosen’s competitive nature willed him back into the game last Saturday and could do the same against Washington State. Below, the head coach also talks about WSU’s sudden running threat, what’s going on with UCLA’s own struggles in the run game and why the Bruins are giving up so many sacks this year (and it’s not just the offensive line).
Head coach Jim Mora talks about the “putrid” UCLA offense, the struggles protecting Josh Rosen and the nonexistent run game.
Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley talks about the defense’s performance against ASU, why Randall Goforth was playing corner and how the defense picks up the slack for the offense.
UCLA head coach Jim Mora was reprimanded by the Pac-12 for public comments concerning officiating during UCLA’s game against Arizona last Saturday, the conference announced Tuesday.
Mora made comments on UCLA’s postgame radio show questioning the game’s officiating, including one play that earned him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. In the first quarter, an Arizona offensive lineman drew a flag for ineligible receiver downfield, but the flag was picked up as it was determined that Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins was out of the pocket and was throwing the ball away legally. The NCAA confirmed that the ruling was correct on this play, according to a statement from the Pac-12. Mora was seen arguing on the sideline with an official after the play and drew a 15-yard penalty.
