I am a Bruins fan but it's going to be hard to watch a number of games this season barring a blue & gold miracle.

What's up with all the negativity? The UCLA offense is improved, look how many quarterbacks started during the season, four of them did including a walk-on that ran the scout offense and was promoted during the season, and one of the started the season as back wide-receiver in Ossaar Raashan. We have more stability at the QB this year, the running game is much improved by haveing more depth, so much depth that the best running back in the city-section in Milton Knox is redshirting this year. Last year we had a runningback start 3 games for us in Craig sheppart who was in the scout team for most of the year, and Christian Ramirez who was a DB at the beginning of the year. The OL may not be better, but it's also not worse, if anything, with the conversions of tight ends and quicker coverted DL men making the switch to offense, just made our chances to succeed better. The DL is stronger than last year's led by Brian Price a 1st team freshmen all-american, and senior Brigham Harwell. The LB positions are better as well, in the defensive backfield is Aulterran Verner one of the best cornerbacks in college footballl with some big-sized DBs that were 4 start recruits in High School coming in to help. Rick Neuheisel, Norm Chow and Dewayne Walker have great minds and know what to do with the talent they have. Hey Trojan fans, just keep on thinking that your team's gonna walk all over us December 6th, just like you thought you would do in 2006. Bruin fans, stop paying attention to all the negativity written by the beat writers and all the trojan fans that wish our program would not be on the rise. Truth is our program IS on the rise and although we may not win 9 games this year will be extremely competitive in every game, and don't be surprised if find ourselves 4-0 to start the season. That's right haters. GO BRUINS!!!!!@
