It was cooler for UCLAs football team at Cal State San Bernardino Wednesday if youre talking about the weather. Tempers, on the other hand, simmered, boiled then exploded. Near the end of the evening practice with Coach Jim Mora throwing the Bruins out of practice after a verbal rage. He blistered the team for a few minutes, then barked that bed check was at 10:45 p.m. and practice at 8 a.m. Thursday. Mora then greeted the media, saying, good practice, drawing laughs. He tried to skirted the subject. Its just training camp, something Im not really going talk about in public, Mora said. No one who watched the practice needed an explanation, Mora said. Im not going to talk about it. He didnt have to. The situation had been volatile for half an hour, with minor scrapes occurring during individual drills. Linebacker Damien Holmes took a swing at fullback Luke Gane, though he did not connect, during a blocking drill. The chippy played carried into team drills, with a couple individual scuffles. At one point, offensive players left the sideline receiver Darius Bell and flipped the ball to a defender, creating a tense moment. Last season the Bruins were involved in a fight against Arizona during a 48-12 loss. This time, Mora reached his limit before things could escalate. He called the team to a huddle, let loose a harsh and extremely colorful rant for a couple minutes and sent them off the field. Asked what are things he cant tolerate in practice, Mora said, Lack of effort, lack of focus, lack of discipline. Asked if he seen any of that Wednesday, Mora said, You see it every day. Before another question could be asked, Mora said, Im not going to talk about it because Im not going to let you write about it. You can keep asking me if you want. Im not going to answer. He then went on discussing the minutiae of practice. -Chris Foster
