No. 7 UCLA began Week 2 of the infamous San Bernardino training camp Monday with their second two-a-day practice.  But it wasn't necessarily the effort that head coach Jim Mora was looking for.

UCLA LB/RB Myles Jack kicked out of practice after fight

UCLA linebacker/running back Myles Jack must have been upset on Monday morning once he learned he was only ranked the 16th-best player in college football by CFB 24/7. Yes, the Bruins' two-way star player could have been ranked higher in the CFB 24/7 poll, but that probably had nothing to do with the incident Monday that led to him getting the boot from training camp practice...
