UCLA’s Jim Mora Jr. does not underestimate rival USC

For a program with tremendous historical success, even above-average results are disappointing. Such is the case for the USC Trojans in recent history. Since the departure of head coach Pete Carroll to the Seattle Seahawks in 2009, the Trojans have a combined record of 44-25. Relative to all other division I football programs, this is an excellent record. It is one that most college...

UCLA Head Coach Jim Mora, On Archrival Trojans: “USC Is Never Down…It’s USC”

USC has failed to live up to program expectations over the last few years. Under Lane Kiffin, interim head coach Ed Orgeron, and current coach Steve Sarkisian, the Trojans are 44-21, a pretty good mark for 95 percent of college football programs, but not a great run for the Trojans, who have claimed 11 national titles and 38 conference championships in program history. For reference...

UCLA Football: Previewing the quarterback position

One of the recurring themes of the UCLA football program during the decade before Jim Mora was the inherently poor quarterback play.

To add insult to injury, UCLA’s crosstown rival, USC, dominated college football led...
