UCLA football could be great
A commenter noted that UCLA is looking as if it has good potential as a football school, with Rick Neuheisel as head coach. And he talked DeWayne Walker into staying as defensive coordinator and got Norm Chow (!) as offensive coordinator. I haven't yet allowed myself to consider the possibilities too heavily for fear of hurting myself in the excitement. It often takes a new coach a year or two to establish himself, but I can see the Bruins being pretty formidable this year. They had some good games last year but had a tendency to play to the level of the competition and lost games they should have won. I don't think Neuheisel/Walker/Chow will let that happen very often.
