Joshua Kelley's persistence could be his calling card at UCLA

Joshua Kelley called UCLA’s football office so often in the spring of 2017 that he was nearly on a first-name basis with the receptionists. His voice, and his objective, became instantly recognizable. “It got to a point where every time they were like, ‘Are you asking for coach Foster again?’ ”...

UCLA Football: Jaelan Phillips is Healthy and Ready to Fly Around the Field

UCLA Football: Jaelan Phillips is Healthy and Ready to Fly Around the Field

The Bruin defender spoke about his scooter accident as well as the new 3-4 defense on Monday. According to Thuc Nhi Nguyen of the LA Daily News, yesterday’s practice was “probably the least eventful day since the first week” as the team was back in just helmets and shorts. Elijah Wade, Colin Samuel, Bo Calvert, Bolu Olorunfunmi, Otito Ogbonnia and Kazmeir Allen were all in yellow, non-contact jerseys while Kyle Philips did individual conditioning on the side but was not in a yellow jersey. Kenny Churchwell missed a second consecutive practice while Je’Vari Anderson missed his fourth...

Can the Bruins return to the postseason after missing the NCAA playoffs for the first time since 1982? Greetings, and welcome to Bruins Nation’s preview of the 2018 UCLA Men’s Soccer Team.

No, Jaelan Phillips wanted everyone to know, he was not being careless with a scooter when he sustained a wrist injury that forced him to watch spring practice in a yellow jersey. “Imma clear things up about this ‘scooter accident’ thing,” the UCLA outside linebacker tweeted in April. “I got hit...

UCLA Football: Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

While Las Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe aren’t that far away for most Californians, what would it be like if you could place a wager on the Bruins on your way home from work? Great Scott! Last night, I saw...into the future! But, before I go there, I want to remind you of a classic scene in one of my favorite 80s movie trilogies. In Back To The Future Part II, Old Biff gives a copy of “Grays Sports Almanac: 1950-2000” to young Biff while “proving it” to him by turning on the car radio to hear a broadcast of UCLA’s 19-17 win over Washington on November 12, 1955 when Bruin kicker Jim...

UCLA Football Loses LB Josh Woods for the Season

UCLA Football Loses LB Josh Woods for the Season

Chip Kelly met the media prior to practice this morning and confirmed that Woods has experienced a season-ending injury. Personnel issues were at the forefront of today’s pre-practice media session with UCLA Football Coach Chip Kelly. It was Kelly’s first interview since Tuesday and, with several players missing some time this week, he was asked about them. The first injured player he was asked about was Josh Woods who had been expected to help anchor the defense this season. “Josh is out for the season,” Kelly said. “He had sustained a knee injury a couple of days ago and will...

UCLA Football: RB Joshua Kelley Loves Being a Bruin

Bolu Olorunfunmi and Atonio Mafi return, but Josh Woods absence looms over camp. Plus Joshua Kelley gives his first interview since transferring to UCLA last year. One of the things I’m learning about the Chip Kelly era is that it’s going to be rather difficult to write these Spaulding Reports. Don’t get me wrong; I’m perfectly ok with the lack of practice viewing UCLA is currently allowing. Kelly wants to (rightly) keep things as close to the vest as possible, which is his right as a coach. Am I excited about how much harder it makes these practice reports to write, considering we...
