The sun was yet to rise on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, but it had already broke above the Wasatch Mountains on what turned into a glorious Wednesday in Westwood. Full Story

Awesome job by the UCLA coaching staff! This is a great comeback for the program. On top of it the basketball teams domination of USC last night was like ice cream on the ice cream. Go Bruins!

Nice recruitment, my hat is off to UGLA. But these kids still have to translate to wins for all of this to have any true meaning. Wake me in September.

Not to mention the character of the guys recruited coming to a 4 and 8 record with the attitude -hey, I am going to make the difference. To wit: The X-man says; Hey, The Bruins need my help. Guys that love to play football, love UCLA.

I love the fact that SUC fans only comments are going to be, "the recruits are not going to play next year." IDIOTS!!!! This about the 2 to 3 years down the road!!!! Sometimes a few play, but mostly they are preserved and trained for the future!!!!.

We took 2 recruits from you, and kept 3 of them away from you!!!!

And we destroyed you in Basketball yesterday.

Silly ToeJams. You guys will always be losers!!!!

The Bruins will soon be competitive with USC and Oregon State,
the days of UCLA being inferior to the Trojans may now numbered? A quality Q-back is yet a necessity!
My other real concern would be the behavior of Coach Rick, being
also a attorney he not only has the attitude he is above the law but he too is the law. It remains to be seen that he again does not self-destruct and dismantle the football program as he did at
Washington. Is it Neuheisel or neuWEASEL?

NO...we did last year with Jerret Lee, who threw at least 7 pick 6's last year. He's no longer our starter. We now have a new kid; plus there's a new kid in town by the name of Russel Shepard (#1 dual qb in the coutry).

But, I would like to comment on one other thing here .......... GO BRUINS/GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!

I'm not for the Pac-2 (Alias Pac 10) buddy...I just like UCLA in that conference, who is gonna beat USC; and it won't be very long now either. According to scout.com , their recruiting class topped USC's (LOL). In the SEC, we didn't have anyone 0-10.

This year, our worst recruiting class was Vanderbilt; and rivals.com said that this was Vanderbilt's best recruiting class in years; and they were one of our 8 TEAMS (2/3 OF OUR CONFERENCE) TO GO TO BOWL GAMES. No other conference can say that. LOL Vanderbilt was even one of our 8 bowl teams this past year.

Hey bruin folks, slick rick gave us a good class but as we know real big time programs recruit good year after year because some of these guys just dont pan out. This isnt basketball.

What were Utah's rankings over the past 5 years? Recruiting is important but the rankings can be misleading. Bama has a bunch of players but like normal, a lot of them will be non-qualifiers.
