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.

Southern Cal's offense has been fun to watch.

BrendonBruin is right here. The tackles were better than the interior line, but not good by any stretch.

Definitely do agree with there being no need to write off 2014 after one ugly win. I'm still confident as well, just less so.

They have arguably the worst defense in the SEC.

I think Auburn's QB is out also. I'm freaking out a little about Bama's defense getting worked so far.

I feel pretty comfortable saying that no RB is approaching 2000 yards from scrimmage in this offense.

The participation report lists Mossi as having played, but not Lee. I'm not sure though.

This is dead on, BillytheSid. He's an average kicker who is good at kickoffs. There is nothing to worry about with him.

As of right now, Brendel is the only player besides Hundley on the offense that has a chance of playing at the next level for more than training camps..

Part of the makeup of Mora as a coach, for better or worse, is the NFL mentality.
