UCLA Women’s Soccer Opens the 2017 Season Against San Diego State

UCLA Women’s Soccer Opens the 2017 Season Against San Diego State

The Bruins kick off the season tonight when they host the Aztecs. It’s finally here, the day we’ve all been anticipating. It’s the day of the 2017 NCAA season opener where the UCLA Bruins will open the season at home at Drake Stadium against the San Diego State University Aztecs. The Bruins visited San Diego State last season, shutting out the Aztecs, 5-0. Three of those goals came from former Bruin Darian Jenkins. Jenkins graduated this past Spring and was selected in the 2017 NWSL Draft along with former teammate Lauren Kaskie. In addition to losing Jenkins and Kaskie, UCLA also...

UCLA Women’s Soccer Looks Primed for a Successful Season with Young, Talented Squad

UCLA Women’s Soccer Looks Primed for a Successful Season with Young, Talented Squad

This could be Amanda Cromwell’s deepest team since the 2013 NCAA championship club Two misplaced shots cost UCLA women’s soccer an opportunity to cap off a remarkable bounce-back season in style. Had then-senior forward Courtney Proctor and then-freshman midfielder Jessie Fleming drained each of their penalty shots in last year’s round of 16 matchup, the Bruins would’ve reached their third Elite Eight in the previous four seasons. But, alas, despite a dramatic equalizer in the final five minutes against West Virginia, UCLA flustered in the end, falling to the Mountaineers 0-0...

UCLA Football: Would It Be Smart for Josh Rosen to Stay at UCLA for Another Year?

UCLA Football: Would It Be Smart for Josh Rosen to Stay at UCLA for Another Year?

How likely is it that Josh Rosen will return for his senior year? The eyebrows of Bruin fans were raised this week when Yahoo Sports reported that Jim Mora believes that there is a chance that Josh Rosen could return for his senior year at UCLA. Another year of Rosen would be tremendous and provide UCLA with much needed offensive continuity, not to mention give Dorian Thompson-Robinson a year to grow under Rosen’s tutelage. Considering the close relationship that Coach Mora has with Rosen, we cannot totally ignore such a strong statement from Mora. “My firm belief is that he will not...

UCLA Football: Bruin Offense Wins For the Third Straight Day

UCLA Football: Bruin Offense Wins For the Third Straight Day

The offense now has a winning streak going, which is definitely a good sign. UCLA held its twelfth practice of Fall Camp yesterday and the offense picked up it’s third consecutive win over the defense, according to Thuc Nhi Nguyen of Inside SoCal. They won the red zone lockout period by scoring three touchdowns against the defense, earning another victory run. In the period, Bolu Olorunfunmi ran for a 16-yard touchdown while Soso Jamabo bought Josh Rosen some extra time to throw a TD pass to Theo Howard. Meanwhile, Austin Burton threw a 25-yard TD to Eldridge Massington. On the defensive...

UCLA Football: Bruins’ Transfer Sunny Odogwu Grateful on Bruins’ Fan Appreciation Day

UCLA Football: Bruins’ Transfer Sunny Odogwu Grateful on Bruins’ Fan Appreciation Day

The offense continued to find its rhythm on Saturday. On Saturday, UCLA Football held its traditional Fan Appreciation Day. There were games, food and fun for the family in Lot 8 while the Bruins practiced hard down on Spaulding Field. After practice, the only player who was interviewed was graduate transfer Sunny Odgowu. And, it was appropriate because Odogwu might just be the most appreciative Bruin of all. After all, Odogwu grew up in Nigeria with a thin mat for a bed and no running water. So, when asked to compare whether he liked Miami or Westwood better, Odogwu wouldn’t compare the...

2017 Pac-12 Football Media Days - UCLA’s Scott Quessenberry: Josh Rosen Was Humbled By His Injury Last Season

2017 Pac-12 Football Media Days - UCLA’s Scott Quessenberry: Josh Rosen Was Humbled By His Injury Last Season

The senior center talks picking up and moving on from a 4-8 season. Today at Pac-12 Media Days, Scott Quessenberry was the offensive representative for UCLA football. He addressed media questions ranging from what the offense is doing differently this year to how he feels about not practicing in San Bernardino. The major theme of the media’s questions definitely had to do with the changes that every Bruin fan hopes to see going on with the team. On one hand, Quessenberry told the media that not much was changing (God, I hope this isn’t true), but, on the other hand, he said the line is...

2017 Pac-12 Media Days: UCLA Football Predicted to Finish 3rd in the Pac-12 South

2017 Pac-12 Media Days: UCLA Football Predicted to Finish 3rd in the Pac-12 South

“Three is a magic number.” - Schoolhouse Rock They say that good things come in threes and if, as ABC’s Schoolhouse Rock taught many of us, three is, indeed, a magic number, then UCLA could be in for a magical season. Josh Rosen wears number three and is in his third season as a Bruin. And, this morning, the Pac-12 Pre-season Media Poll was released and UCLA was picked to come in third place in the Pac-12 South. USC was picked to win the South while Utah was second. Colorado was fourth. Arizona State finished fifth and Arizona was sixth. Washington was picked to win the North with...

2017 UCLA Football Fall Preview: The Defensive Line Returns Plenty of Experience, But No Starters

2017 UCLA Football Fall Preview: The Defensive Line Returns Plenty of Experience, But No Starters

Most of the unit has seen plenty of game action over the past few seasons. This morning, we continue of Fall Football Preview with a look at the Defensive Line. This units has lost all four of its starters due to graduation. Takkarist McKinley, Deon Hollins, Eddie Vanderdoes and Eli Ankou are all gone. Those are some really big shoes to fill. But Coach Angus McClure’s unit looks to be up to the task. There are a lot of defensive linemen who have seen plenty of playing time before this year. This year’s squad looks to have 13 defensive linemen on it. Let’s look at the roster. This...
