I've been a California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels fan essentially since birth. I was also raised on UCLA sports. Mainly a Bruin football, baseball and basketball fan; but root for any Bruin athletic program. I picked up an NFL team around 1998 when the Rams continually beat the Buccaneers. Aside from my family's roots in South Florida, I rooted for the Bucs to spite my mother's love of Kurt Warner, but grew to love the organization more the older I got. Basketball is Lakers or bust, aside from the former UCLA players in the NBA.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Los Angeles Angels
  • NBA Los Angeles Lakers
  • NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • NCAAF UCLA Bruins
  • NCAAB UCLA Bruins
  • FIFA Croatia
  • Boxing Floyd Mayweather Jr.

I totally agree with this.

Do you really want to compare what was required in terms of talent in winning the Pac-10 in 1998 versus the Pac-12 in 2014?

I just want to know who gave the real USC a first place vote.

Probably a little of both. Agreeing with someone always makes them seem brighter.

If I were a head coach, the N-Zone would not be my first choice of offensive scheme to run.

I'd hesitate to overreact.

Judging by the visuals, I'd be shocked if they weren't.

There is no chance the football building is going to get started with this happening.

Bright side: the kickoff coverage units is talented enough where losing Covington has little to no impact in terms of returns.

There is no reason for this defense to not be a top 20 unit nationally.

You can do a lot of the same things out of either one.

I'm really high on Johnson from watching him in the spring pre-injury and in San Bernardino last season pre-injury

This GIF is an appropriate reaction when looking at this defensive depth chart.

I actually talk a little bit about Shirley tomorrow in the LB preview.

UCLA was only 40th in the country in plays per game (basically tied with Oregon, oddly). But, other good teams that run an up tempo have much more success up front.

Him and Klemm are in the same boat in that regard.

That 2nd gear he has when turning the ball upfield is a welcome sight.

From look at Orjioke, the last problem he would seem to have would be S&C.

It's no problem. As far as Kenny Orjioke goes, he just hasn't played much football.

Basically just that he would provide a different look as a pass rusher than anyone currently on UCLA's roster.

He was a 4* out of high school and has now had 4 years of D1 S&C training on top of being a quality contributor at UW.

Would be happy to see Shirley in a UCLA uniform, even if it would be 4 years later than it should have been.
