The UCLA Bruins are currently on a 3 game winning streak heading into conference play. First up for the Bruins is Oregon State. The Bruins will be experimenting with the playcard phenomenon that has taken over after Oregon made it famous with their outrageous pictures.
Coach Jim Mora feels it could help the Bruins offense speed up a little bit.
“If it can help us with our substitution, speed up our operation on offense, then we’re going to do it,” UCLA Coach Jim Mora said.
UCLA fans can expect to see some ridiculous things on these cards. They range from Eric Cartman, Maurice Jones-Drew and Troy Aikman, the In-N-Out Burger logo and a banana.
“You get a group of graduate assistants in a room late at night, a little punch drunk from spending 80 hours working that week, and some silly things can happen,” Mora said.
Mora seems poised to lead the Bruins back to the top, but there are a lot of new faces in the Pac 12 that are looking to do exactly the same thing.

It's all in the cards.

Alright Beavers fans, UCLA are 3-0 right now. We should be worried about the Beavers chances on Saturday right? Well no, at least no more than you should usually be worried about a beavers game played in the month of September. Yes, UCLA has as of yet failed to lose a football game; and yes they’ve put up some nice scores in the first three games. There are some things that should...
