Verner's Views - Finale

As always, great to get ATV's take on things. I am going to miss watching this guy patrol our secondary. "I won't ever forget the walk from the buses to the Rose Bowl and seeing all the fans. You fans are so amazing to me and fueled me for every rose bowl game. You have never let me down and I appreciate that!!!" - ATV

Pre-game Guesses: ASU and SUC Results (Updated)

It's too late to comment on the ASU game, and it's too painful to comment on the SUC game. So here are your results... Arizona State: 1. How many yards will Kevin Prince throw (within 10)? 161 2...

Pac-10 All Academic Team Announced

UCLA has 10 players named, while SUC has 5 (with none on the 1st or 2nd team). Stanford appears to crush everyone. Anyone surprised here?

Is this Brian Price's last game at UCLA?

I'm usually not one for speculating (or worrying) about any one player and whether they may leave early for the NFL draft because it's a waste of energy. But I found myself wondering today, "Is...

Pre-game Guesses: Washington State Results

I'm just gonna get to it today...no commentary or anything. I'm very superstitious and ever since I stopped my commentaries we started winning. So, I'm gonna go ahead and take all the credit for...

Kicker Kip Smith commits to Bruins

This link doesn't have the news, but scout.com shows him as a UCLA commit. He is a former Minnesota commit who has blasted a 67-yard FG, so he obviousloy has a huge leg. Since Forbath is a junior this is a great pickup. Hopefully he will continue the tradition of great UCLA kickers.

Pre-Game Guesses: Washington Results

  I know I'm a week late on this, but it's been a crazy 2 weeks. Forgive me...I promise the Washington St. results are on the way. For the Washington game I was lucky enough to fly out from Des...

How UCLA football stadium bid was shot down

A somewhat readable article from the LAT. However, the article ends somewhat abruptly...don't writers normally pose a question, a solution, or at least tie the story to something current?

Setting Expectations

I know I'm writing this post before I've even had a chance to post the pre-game guess results from last week, so you'll have to forgive me. But there is something that has been bothering me the...

Pre-Game Guesses: Oregon State Results

I know we lost last week, but I still feel good about this team. I also feel good about the game against Washington. Why? Because I'll be flying out to Los Angeles tomorrow morning to attend the...

Bruins pick up LB recruit

LB is definitely a position we will need to restock soon...good to see this.

Urban Meyer = Pete Carroll of the SEC?

Does this article remind you of someone? Only coaches like Pete Carroll and Urban Meyer would suspend a player for one friggin' half for trying to blind an opponent. I'm still not sure what our 4 guys did to deserve their 1 gamer, but it couldn't have possibly been worse than eye-gouging. What a terrible message to send young players.

Sorry about the delay on the results...I know that all of you wait with bated breath to read my insightful weekly post. Much like Achilles, work has been hectic lately. Either way, the Bruins sit...

Pre-Game Guesses: Week 6 Results

Another week of UCLA football, another loss. Although let's be honest, are we really in a position that we didn't expect to be in pre-season? We already have 75% of our win total from all of last...

Well, at least we'll be able to see the game...I'll have to go on media blackout for a few hours.

Pre-Game Guesses: Week 5 Results

"From my blindside, Tom Cable threw me from my chair and into a piece of furniture ... He was screaming, 'I'll f------ kill you! I'll f------ kill you!' And I have no reason to believe he wouldn't have killed me if they hadn't pulled him away.'' -- Raiders assistant coach Randy Hanson, to Yahoo! Sports' Michael Silver, in his first extensive public comments about what he claims was an attack on him by Raiders coach Tom Cable Aug. 4 at the Raiders' training camp hotel in Napa, Calif.

Pre-game Guesses: Bye Week Results

Well, that was a pretty exciting weekend in college football...too bad UCLA didn't take part. Although I don't think the bye could have come at a better time...we're banged up and we need to fix...

The PAC-1...or PAC-10?

George Schroeder of SI.com channels my thoughts completely. It's a good read that covers the misperception of the PAC-10 in the rest of the country. Too bad ASU fell short against Georgia (but honestly should have won)...it would have been a good win for the conference.

(Pete Carroll's) the perfect fit for USC because he knows how to attract future NFL talent. Does he know how to coach it, how to maximize it? No. He does not.

Pre-game Guesses: Week 2 Results
