NO RUN FOR THE ROSEN

Not in the Cards – Josh Rosen doesn’t get any play in his first real game as an Arizona Cardinal, despite starter Sam Bradford’s lackluster effort, but one NFL Bruin does score a TD, when Myles Jack gets a Pick 6 for Jacksonville

Arizona Cardinal fans might be clamoring for Bruin QB Josh Rosen pretty soon, if their team’s Offense continues to struggle the way they did today, in a 24-6 loss to Washington.  The Redskins shut down Sam Bradford, who threw for only 153 yards, and no TD’s.  Also, he was sacked twice, threw an INT, and lost a fumble, all while Rosen watched from the sidelines.

It may be a blessing that Rosen isn’t playing yet, as the supporting cast in Arizona did not look very good at all, losing badly to a Washington team that was not predicted to be strong in the NFC this season.  Meanwhile, over in the AFC, Jacksonville is expected to compete for a Title, thanks in part to a stellar defense led by Linebacker Myles Jack.  He led the team with 10 tackles, and his Interception Return for a Touchdown was the difference in a tight victory over the Giants.

Speaking of giants, here are 37 more photos of the (figuratively speaking) Giants of the Cheer World, the UCLA Spirit Squad. Continue Reading »

THINGS GET STORMY FOR DANIELS

Happy ending trumps loss — Hours after the Bruins get spanked in Norman, Stormin’ Stanford dominates u$c, molesting trojan QB J.T. Daniels into a Fumble and 2 Interceptions while holding sc to only 3 points in a 17-3 pounding

There’s no better way to get over a Bruin loss than with a trojan loss that is more costly to them than the UCLA loss.  u$c came into their game at Stanford with a #17 National Ranking, and even though Stanford was #10, the WAY sc lost should cost them a few rungs on the Ranking ladder.  u$c backers had been pretty excited about True Freshman Quarterback J.T. Daniels leading troy to their opening week romp over UNLV, but the inexperienced signal caller was exposed in Palo Alto, as sc was completely shut out in the first half, never even reaching the red zone, and then managed only a measly field goal in the second half, as the Cardinal cruised to a convincing 17-3 triumph.

Daniels looked green and raw, repeatedly throwing off his back foot.  He got sacked 4 times, fumbled, and threw 2 late Interceptions when trying to mount a desperate comeback.  Stanford’s Heisman candidate Bryce Love gained 136 yards rushing, scoring on a 6-yard run on the game’s very first drive.  Remarkably, that Touchdown not even 5 minutes into the game was all the points Stanford would need to beat sc, and knock them out of the National Playoff Debate for the time being.

Watching sc be so inept while losing an all-important CONFERENCE game is nice, but it doesn’t completely erase the tragic events witnessed earlier in the day at Norman, Oklahoma.  UCLA started off great, taking a 7-0 lead over the 30-point favorite Sooners, before rolling over and allowing FORTY-TWO STRAIGHT POINTS.  Once the contest was thoroughly in hand for OU, the Bruins came back to “win” the final 11 minutes of the game 14-7, making the final score a slightly more respectable, spread-covering 49-21.

Of course there is no shame getting pummeled by the #6 team in the nation, in their house, and despite the large margin, the Bruins showed some improvement over their previous loss, at home to Cincinnati.  But there was also plenty to be disgruntled about, starting with Continue Reading »

REYNOLDS WRAP – CELEBRATING BURT WITH PERT BEFORE THE HURT

Hollywood Lodestar — In tribute to the passing of iconic superstar Burt Reynolds, and before UCLA rides into a projected world of hurt as a 30-point underdog to Oklahoma, let’s honor the renowned ladies’ man with 54 photos of the pert — like early Sally Field — women of the UCLA Dance Team

Rest in Peace, Bandit.

It is a sad day today, as the World has lost a Hollywood Legend.  Burt Reynolds was the #1 Box Office Star of the entire 1970’s, giving us a pantheon of unforgettable action films, and sprinkling in some romantic comedies, regular comedies, and dramas as well.  “Deliverance” was intense, the “Smokey and the Bandit” franchise endures to this day, and his appearances on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson will never get old.

Reynolds was charming, handsome, and funny — a knockout combination.  He Continue Reading »

A PAUCITY OF POSITIVITY IN PAW CITY

Time to Paws and Reflect in Pa(w)sadena– After a bad first game, a lot of fair weather fans jump off the Chip Kelly Bruin Bandwagon

Good riddance.  We don’t need the impatient whiners who require instant gratification to exist.  I rather be surrounded by REAL fans, Bruins for Life, who live and die with UCLA no matter what.  I attended every Dorrell Era Home Game, and every Neuheisel Era Home Game, so a weak start to the Kelly Era is not going to deter me.

Just like the members of the UCLA Spirit Squad, who were still cheering with all their hearts when the Bruins were down by 9 with less than 2 minutes left, I will stay positive, and give a proven winner like Chip Kelly a little time to get the Program in order.

No one thinks the Bruins can turn it all around this Saturday, as they face the powerful Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma.  This will be a good chance for Kelly to continue to work the bugs out of his system, without the added pressure of being EXPECTED to win.  The plethora of Freshman who are being relied upon to produce will gain valuable experience, in their first game in a hostile environment. Kelly will learn more about what they can do and what they can’t do, and then can design his game plan accordingly, so it will be more tailored to their specific individual abilities.  Also, Continue Reading »

ALL THAT AND A BAG ON CHIP

We waiters got only a 15% Chip — Bruin fans waited a long time to get an elite Coach like Chip Kelly, but his debut is a debacle, as demonstrated by a lack of trademark-Chip Offensive imagination, lack of scoring, dropped passes, bad snaps, horrible tackling, and a stupid coaching penalty that basically iced the game, in a 26-17 loss to lowly Cincinnati

The Chip Kelly Era at UCLA got underway on Saturday, and it wasn’t pretty.  UCLA got beat — at HOME — by two-touchdown underdog Cincinnati, 26-17.  The unranked Bearcats made the 2018 Bruins look like the 2017 Bruins — lousy, on both sides of the ball.  UCLA couldn’t run (with a 1-play exception), couldn’t pass, couldn’t catch, and couldn’t stop the run.  They couldn’t even SNAP the ball well on a consistent basis.  That recipe for disaster led to a depressing opening day loss that looked a lot like the last couple of seasons of the Mora regime, which led to Mora being replaced.

The hope was that Chip Kelly would bring his innovative Offensive strategy to Westwood, but the misdirection that Kelly’s Oregon teams were famous for was not very evident on Saturday.  There was one great fake that led to a wide open play, but the Receiver dropped the ball.  The Bruin Offense did operate quickly, with an uptempo pace that helped make Kelly elite, but it did not seem to bother the Cinci Defense at all.  It did not give the Bruins the advantage that it always seemed to give the Ducks.

The Oregon pace was accentuated by the SPEED of individual players, and Continue Reading »

THE ACE IS SPEIGHT

Magic Speight Ball — Chip Kelly names Michigan transfer Wilton Speight as the Starting Quarterback for UCLA’s opening game

Experience trumps the dual threat options.  New UCLA Head Football Coach Chip Kelly has selected Senior Wilton Speight to start at Quarterback on Saturday against Cincinnati, over faster, more agile running QB options Devon Modster and Freshman Dorian Thompson-Robinson.  Speight actually beat Cinci last year as a Wolverine, so maybe that’s a good omen, and possibly a factor in the decision.

Speight was at one time a hot-shot QB at Michigan, with a long winning streak under his belt before getting injured.  His comeback campaign was never as glorious as that early win streak, and ultimately paved the way for his trek West to Westwood.  If he can recapture those glory days, Continue Reading »

SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF

Suspended animation — Despite the six players suspended from the Opening Day game, Bruin fans are still animated about the dawning of The Chip Kelly Era

It’s hard to believe that 6 kids on the UCLA Football team would jeopardize their careers and their teammates by breaking rules so badly as to earn suspensions.  But that is exactly what has happened.  You would think they would be so compliant, due to the excitement of playing for a proven winner like Chip Kelly.  But college-aged kids do not always show good judgment, and are infamous for making bad, reckless decisions, so now the Bruins are down six bodies for the Cincinnati game this Saturday.

The exact rule that was broken is unknown, with many assuming it’s marijuana.  That’s an interesting situation, since marijuana is now legal here in California.  You might feel like these young adults should have the freedom to smoke a little legal grass, to relax in their off time.  But Continue Reading »

COHEN GOT THE JUICE

Celebrated murderer celebrates murder — Sacha Baron Cohen takes a stab at O.J. Simpson on Showtime’s “Who is America?” TV show, duping him into actually GIVING A HIGH FIVE over the idea of wife-killing

With everything going on in Washington D.C. right now, you may think this headline has to do with former Trump Fixer Michael Cohen having enough clout and inside information to take down an embattled Nazi sympathizer.  However, it is actually about ex-trojan O.J. “The Juice” Simpson getting punked on National TV by Sacha Baron Cohen.

Cohen’s new Showtime show has made a habit of humiliating political figures and pseudo-celebrities, including Dick Cheney and Roy Moore, and tonight was no different, with Cohen placing ex-con O.J. Simpson in his cross-hairs.  While unable to elicit a full confession to the infamous double murders as intended, Cohen still managed to make Simpson look guilty as sin.  Cohen (disguised as a billionaire character) talked about wanting to kill his woman, and during that conversation, Simpson, who didn’t know he was on camera, high-fived Cohen.  Some things are worth celebrating and some things aren’t.  Murdering your wife is not one of them, but someone forgot to tell O.J.

The conversation went on for about 5 minutes, with Cohen calling Simpson a murderer over and over, making stabbing motions at the neck of his girlfriend.  Viewers around the Country were filled with disgust as O.J. chuckled heartily at all these references to the murders Continue Reading »

JUST IN THE NICK OF CRIME

Swaggering to jail – Ex-trojan Nick “Swaggy P” Young gets arrested for Obstruction of Justice after defying Police during a traffic stop

You already knew that former trojan Basketball hero Nick Young, aka “Swaggy P,” wasn’t playing with a full deck, after lighting a firework and letting it go off while still holding it in his hands, and after almost getting a tattoo with the word “rebel” spelled wrong, and after lewdly harassing an NBA-affiliated executive and her Mother at a stop light, and after getting caught on tape bragging about cheating on his girlfriend, and after getting fined $25,000 for starting a brawl in a game, but now you can add an arrest for Obstruction of Justice to the staggering list of evidence.

Last night around midnight in Hollywood, Young was stopped by Police, and just like a typical arrogant trojan, he refused to cooperate with the Officers.  You would think with all the anecdotes out there about Continue Reading »
