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.

It was still bad, don't think I'm giving the play calling too much credit.

The read option plays were there early in the game, Brett just didn't keep them when he should have.

Redmond started a full season and got All-Freshman honors, Benenoch started a full season, Bunche is a 5th year senior with a lot of starts under his belt, Quessenberry started 5 games.

Debatable, I wouldn't argue that there was some contact.

It looked really bad because UVA's offense did it with success against UCLA's much more talented defense.

In Q's defense (and he deserves to be questioned because he played poorly), it was the first game he'd played at center since high school

The OL's problems didn't seem effort based. They were just getting manhandled inside.

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.

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