Impact of Talent

The impact of that depth of talent in the UCLA football program, particularly when combined with some experience, is immeasurable.

Jason Collins Comes Out, Bruins Show Support

As Jason Collins comes out as the first active player from a major American sports league, Bruins come out in force to show support.

I decided to look into football season tickets and found this image on the renewals page. Next year we will have national level marquee players in both major sports. When was the last time that happened, Cade McNown and Baron Davis?

It's most likely the last Saturday with our man.. A heart-wrenching update from the family of Jackson Reece. I thought folks here would want to know. I'm sure I speak for the BruinsNation community when I say our thoughts and prayers go out to Jackson and his family. Fight on Jackson.

UCLA Basketball: A Word On Our Elite Recruits

Thoughts on UCLA's incoming recruiting class headed by two consensus top-5 recruits and ramifications on expectations for 2012-13 season.

Mmm

The wounds created by two Ben Ball losses have been salted heavily by the success of Chase Stanback and particularly Mike Moser so far this season. Moser is the toast of Vegas sports talk radio right now thanks to outlandish performances like the one noted above. Oh yeah, in case you don't feel like deciphering the box score, that's 23 points, 17 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals for Moser last night, to go along with a pedestrian (by comparison) 20 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals for Stanback.

QB Rating and UCLA Football Mediocrity

A member of BruinsNation runs some "Moneyball" like queries to find correlation between UCLA's decade of football troubles and Bruins' QB mediocrity.

Heading into the last few season's CBH has given off the impression that he would be watching his team through spread fingers the way some folks watch horror movies. In this article by Andy Katz, CBH actually sounds like he can't wait to see what his squad can do.

It was another packed house today at Rancho High as everyone including CBH (center, black shirt), Malcolm Lee (right, red hat), Calamari (forefront, white shirt) and Tark the Shark (out of frame in front of Calipari) was on hand to watch Shabazz do his thing (except for Tark who was pretty much napping the whole time). The kid did not disappoint.

Rick Neuheisel has now presided over two of the worst years in UCLA football history. Here are our ten worst years based on average margin of victory (or average margin of defeat in this case). Note that the top three years on the list were our first three years in existence and as such can essentially be stricken from the record.
