    Show me some love Mr. Wolf. UCLA at #12 when we are a top 4 team – really?

      It’s called feeding the trolls…..

      Every other Bruin visits this blog, so it makes sense that you’d show up here, too.

    Marshall > Notre Dame?….. I don’t think so…..Scotties Marshall pick is purely because of their weak schedule….they may wind up having a better record than ND, but they are NOT a better team….

    And still no Michigan either, eh?……..Maybe the winner of this weekends #17 ND-Michigan game will find a way into your Blessed ballot……

    According to 247 Sports, the top ten performances by true freshman last weekend included JuJu Smith, Toa Lobendahn and Damien Mama..and let’s not forget about Ajax and Bryce Dixon…..

      It was Fresno State, a team that couldn’t get into the Pac-12!

      • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

        Squeaking out a win over a team that won 2 games last season is much more impressive. Their juggernaut of a defense held Heisman Hundley and the boys to 7 points!

          I believe UVA will have a winning season this year. Remember, Auburn was 3-9 two years ago. Not a great team–but UVA is better than folks predicted. Very good D.

          • steveg

            Maybe we should have Fresno play UVA and settle it.

          • EncinitasBruin

            There ya go.

          • UCLA Bleauz

            I’m looking forward to watching Nebraska play Fresno State IN Fresno, on September 13th……..

    So would Scottie favor USC to win this weekend? Typical for SW… I’m so good when we do and I told you so if we dont… But then again, USC coaches just need to stay out of the way… Too bad SW can follow his own advice for the blog HAWR HAWR HAWR

    Where are the grades from the Fresno St game? Really must be too hungover to think that hard right?

    • UCLA Bleauz

      Now you don’t really think that Scottie would be in any hurry to report GOOD news, do you?

    • UCLA Bleauz

      Wolfie stopped with the grading..his Euro shtick never caught on, as much as he had hoped.. everything is pass/fail now……

  • Trogan Fan

    Love it, Wolfie! Bruins still one step ahead of Yesterday U!

  • UCLA Dynasty

    ND State? You’re just trying to get kicked off the poll, right?

    • UCLA Bleauz

      It was fun that they beat ISU, but seriously……Michigan and Notre Dame would pummel those guys into SOUTH Dakota…

      • sming01

        LOL. NDSU could beat both of them

      • sming01

        it is also amazing how NDSU beats FBS teams every season yet still gets no respect…

  • Andrew Shrum

    Notre Dame not even in your Top 25? Wow. What a hater.

  • EncinitasBruin

    I have no problem with UCLA falling out of the top 10 after a mediocre showing in Charlottesville. As a P12 person, however, I find it curious that both FSU and Alabama–who both looked equally underwhelming–remain fixed at #1 and #2. And Stanford falls two spots for doing exactly what they should have done: destroying a cupcake opponent? You didn’t see FSU falling in the polls last year when they beat mighty Bethune-Cookman 54-6. Now that my “East Coast Bias” rant is over, I will say that if SC beats Stanford, and UCLA handles Memphis in convincing fashion, both should be in the top 10, assuming one or two stumbles from higher teams.

    • UCLA Bleauz

      I would agree…….and for these trolls who are pleading for a 7 win season by USC, don’t they realize that this would have an adverse effect on the SOS for UCLA?…..hating for the sake of hating, without thinking through the ramifications, is lame…..I would rather that both teams meet on November 22 undefeated….now THAT would be the hottest ticket in town!

      • EncinitasBruin

        Absolutely. All boats rise with the tide.

  • steveg

    Absolute evidence you should not be able to vote on a poll.

  • sming01

    Notre Dame does not deserve to be in top 25 yet

  • B.Miller

    NOT EVEN SURE WHY YOU HAVE A PICK!
