How good have these Bruins become? So good that wild bears have begun showing up near the Rose Bowl, hoping for a peek. The first one they called "Meatball," because what else would you call something that walked more than a couple of miles to see (the old) UCLA play? The second bear got nailed by a car.

On UCLA being ranked in the AP Top 25: "It's not something I've thought about nor something I will probably think about. To me personally there's no significance in being ranked after two weeks. To our fan base and alumni and for the exposure that it brings our school I think it's a good thing. It's a great thing, but for us as a football team it doesn't matter."

By EARL BLOOM / THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER PASADENA – Freshman Randall Goforth, from Long Beach Poly, was one of eight UCLA first-year football players to debut last week in the opener at Rice. On Saturday, Goforth was a starting safety against No. 17 Nebraska in just his second collegiate game, and led the Bruins with nine tackles in the 36-30, UCLA upset victory at the Rose Bowl.

Allen moved to fullback and was named the starter two weeks into fall camp. Not long after the Bruins resumed camp in Westwood, Allen was named one of the Bruins' six captains. The road there, however, was battle-tested.

Martinez had his best game as a Nebraska signal-caller but faces a different test this week against a team that currently leads the country in sacks after one game. If the offense can continue to play mistake free and lean on their defense to play close to their potential, this should be an easy win for Nebraska.

"Freshman Torian White, Simon Goines and Jake Brendel played their first game in college last week. What they lack in experience they more than make up for with talent and upside. The amount of reps and the pace with which Mora ran practice helped the unit. Brendel, the center, added that Mora's ability to simulate practice to game experience really helped him. It's why it didn't take longer than a rep to get Brendel going."

Conference Call Recap: Lucien not ejected

UCLA coach Jim Mora said during a conference call with reporters Friday that he was informed by officials that it was "number 15 on their team" but wondered why, then, if Gaines was ejected he wasn't levied a personal foul. That would have offset the penalties and allowed Thigpen's score to stand. "I was curious they didn't penalize (Rice)," Mora said.

"I believe that the players are going to raise up to the level that the coaches demand of them and I don’t have much sympathy for people that don’t operate at a high standard all the time," Mora said.

Early warning signal Running backs Paul Perkins and Johnathan Franklin each had long touchdown runs. Quarterback Brett Hundley threw two long touchdowns. Safety Dalton Hilliard made a leaping interception. "I don't want to discount anything anybody is doing, but there are a lot of guys that I have seen through my career who looked really good in underwear," Coach Jim Mora said. "When you put the pads on it differentiates things for you."

Coach Jim Mora said practicing in the blistering temperatures will help the Bruins adapt to the weather they will find in Houston on Aug. 30 when they open the season at Rice. "You know what it was in Houston at kickoff yesterday? Go look it up. It was worse than this," Mora said. "So if we want to play on Aug. 30 – unless they schedule it for the Astrodome — we are going to have to handle this environment. "I would rather have us be a little bit shocked now and adjusted than being shocked than be beat."

Mora, asked this week where he stood in the decision-making process said "I have a feeling, but still need to be convinced." He also talked about trying to project players and how a guy with upside will eventually pass a guy who is playing at a steady level. Put two and two together and it was a thinly veiled suggestion that Hundley is the leader and as long as he doesn't fall on his face the first two weeks of camp, the freshman will win the job.

He was pronounced 90% dead when the police showed up and was rushed to the intensive care unit. Nick has no recollection of how he got to the hospital. The tragic part of this story is that the doctors had to amputate his left leg.

With recruiting in mind, this unfortunate injury reminds us that all future recruits are going to be playing a full season of HS football. The best will play in championships and all-star games plus all the elite camps and 7 on 7s. It's a violent sport and bad things can and do happen. I hope Adam has a full and complete, 100% recovery.
