Thanks, Jill, for a well-written, upbeat piece. I
'm thrilled for the boys, the coaches, and for us, the fans. Going from 4-8 one year to 7-6 the next is an indisputable step in the right direction, especially considering the strength of the Pac-10 this year. It is also a good sign to go 4-1 down the stretch, upon breaking a 5 game losing streak.
I thought Temple was comparable to OSU, to whom we lost earlier in the year. Play this team (Temple) in October of this year, and we would have lost this game. No way we would've bounced back being down 21-7.
This is a nice New Year's celebration. Now let's move that recruiting class from number 20 up into the top 10-12!

for several years the Bruins have been challenged by a lack of depth. the bowls allow time for the players to get healthy and prep extensively and make adjustments for a single game.
it's uncommon for Pac-10 teams to play a bowl game on the east side of the country, let alone in a cold climate. this game gave UCLA wide positive exposure, especially recruiting-wise.
P.S. Even with this win, it's time to go back to tradition prior to the over-the-wall nonsense
