Spaulding Report: Bolu Ruled Out for Season

Chip Kelly announced Bolu’s injury during Wednesday’s session. Jumbo Spaulding Report, coming at ya! Monday We already covered Chip Kelly’s media availability from Monday, so let’s go to some of the other interviews. Let’s start with Krys Barnes, who has seen improved play in the past few weeks.

And it gives us our energy.”...

UCLA's offensive line shows how effective it can be with Christaphany Murray at guard

A move back to guard has re-centered Christaphany Murray and UCLA’s offensive line. The line has been at its sturdiest since Murray ceded the center spot to Boss Tagaloa before the Bruins’ game against Colorado on Sept. 28, allowing Murray to resume playing a more familiar position. “I’m more comfortable...

UCLA Football Preview: Arizona Wildcats Will be Without Khalil Tate

UCLA Football Preview: Arizona Wildcats Will be Without Khalil Tate

Second week in a row that UCLA plays a team with a quarterback change. News broke early Tuesday morning that the Arizona Wildcats offense would be without their most valuable offensive weapon, quarterback and one time Heisman Trophy Candidate, Khalil Tate. Tate has been hampered for most of the year with an ankle injury that has really impacted his play, and he re-injured the ankle early in the first quarter against Utah last Saturday. While our very own Chip Kelly is not exactly the fountain of thoughts in interviews with the press, he did offer some thoughts on Tate being out. Chip...

UCLA Football: UC Berkeley Post-Game Roundtable

The writers and editors of Bruins Nation discuss UCLA’s 37-7 victory over the UC Berkeley Golden Bears It’s the first win of the season! What was your initial impression of the game? Markybcool: The combination of finally playing a not so good football team, and the Bruins improving equalled a pretty convincing win. It was really nice to see the defense play like that since over the last couple of years we have been witness to some defensive football that has sometimes been simply unwatchable. AnteatersandBruins: We finally played a complete game. Not a game with bright spots here and...

Big News in UCLA Basketball’s First Media Availability

6’8” Chris Smith is the backup point guard The first media availability was more interesting than almost any of these I have watched. Generally this is a bunch of mindless coach speak and Bull Durham clichés. Occasionally there is a good quote or nugget to discuss. There was some of that by Coach Steve Alford and Jaylen Hands but there was some interesting details to nerd out on. Instead of pulling quotes, instead I will focus on the takeaways. 1. The big news is the big point guard. The backup point guard is indeed 6’8/9” Chris Smith. He has been running the second unit. Wow. I...
