U.C.L.A. had superior players in the last several years.
Mr. Howland has a predicable style that prior athletes were able to overcome with superior talent. This team walks and then runs a bunch of plays that have to work almost perfectly in order for this team to score. Other teams run and put pressure on you. Why does U.CL.A. not do this. Why make yourself predicable. I believe that if U.C.L.A. had run on a consistent basis and pressured other teams with their quickness they may have won more than one National championship in the last five years. Coach Howland style is pedestrian. It is predicable. He seems to seek control of the offense instead of letting players play. That makes it about him and not the team. And the result is very plain
They have some talented players now. What they do not have is a coach who is able to adjust.
