Utah, Cal, and the problem with Pac-12 parity

The Pac-12 dubs itself the "Conference of Champions." In recent years, however, its football teams and games have defied expectations so often that the Pac-12 could more accurately be called the "Conference of Chaos." Can anything else explain the fact that, after just 5 weeks, Utah and Cal are its only remaining undefeated teams?  Last season alone, both Arizona schools won...

UCLA Football: What comes next for the Bruins

Oh how College Football changes in a single week. Last week, Ole Miss was being hailed as the most dangerous National Championship contender after beating Alabama, in Alabama. This week, Hugh Freeze’s squad is down to #14 in the AP poll, after a dismantling at the hands of Florida. Earlier this year, Oregon was viewed as a top five team, a dominant force that required a small transition...

UCLA: Unceasingly Coughing Leverage Away (this century)

Remember when UCLA led Miami late in the 1998 regular-season finale between the two teams in the old Orange Bowl stadium? The Bruins somehow lost that lead and the game. They failed to make the first BCS National Championship Game in the 1999 Fiesta Bowl against Tennessee. They played the 1999 Rose Bowl against Wisconsin with the flat emotional feel of a team that had in fact been...

Jim Mora calls UCLA's upcoming schedule 'a complete injustice'

UCLA’s next two games are weeknight games. This does not please Bruins’ coach Jim Mora Jr.  His team, which was upset by Arizona State tonight, has back-to-back Thursday night contests. They play at Stanford on Oct. 15 and home against California on Oct. 22. The game against the Cardinal will kick off at 7:30 p.m. local time, with the contest against the Bears kicking off at...

Freshmen Josh Rosen, Soso Jamabo Lead UCLA Past Arizona

Something special is brewing with the Bruins. Sure, Jim Mora knew he had a great recruiting class coming into the 2015 season, but I don’t think anyone believed that class of freshmen would make as big of an impact as it has so far. No. 9 ranked UCLA toppled conference rival Arizona on Saturday 56-30, but the attack was led by a couple of those outstanding freshmen. Quarterback...

Josh Rosen wins, but BYU’s defense gave him a lot to think about

Prior to the season, UCLA head coach Jim Mora made waves when he attacked freshman quarterback Josh Rosen in the media. It turns out that Mora’s words may have had some validity, regardless of whether they were warranted or not. Rosen profoundly struggled for much of his team’s victory Saturday night against BYU, in a matchup against the toughest opposing defense he had seen...

UCLA's Jim Mora: ‘I’m an a–hole’ when I coach

    Jim Mora responded to media criticism of his treatment of true freshman quarterback Josh Rosen by acknowledging that he is a jerk when coaching, however, he says it is all part of his tactics. As the LA Times reported, Mora lit into Rosen Wednesday during a Hail Mary drill. We said at the time that we believed Mora was just playing head games with Rosen in an effort to...
