    UCLA gets stomped at home by Stanford 35-0 to start the season 0-2. He gets on the PA at the stadium after the game and <gasp> accepts responsibility and apologizes to the UCLA fans. Next thing you know UCLA stomps ranked opponents two weeks in a row, including going into Austin and taking the shorthorns to the woodshed with power football. Go figure.

    Damn Hawk sucks.

    I give him props for leaving CU and UW.

    UCLA will soon be a gimme in the PAC.

    I'm still amazed UCLA isn't better than they are. But, I give RN props for taking blame. It's been a long time since we've had a HC come out after a loss and not blame the little things or the players...

    Gotta give UCLA props for scheduling such a tough OOC. Who knew they'd go 2-1 with that slate.

    Amen, GB was pretty good at deflecting blame "we did not execute" seemed to be one of his favorite responses to tough questions.

    Slick Rick's morals may not be too impressive but at least he doesnt live in an alternate reality like Hawk. Man Hawk is pathetic!

    I certainly never thought I would be begging for Slick Rick over DH. Strange world.

    I'm pretty sure we've seen RN's track record, splashes of greatness, a steady stream of underachieving. Given time UCLA will decline into the same undisciplined soft throw-it-on-third-and-one team every RN team eventually does. You do have to hand it to him though for going into the land of the deformed cow and beating the pants off UT.

    And yes, I think he's twice the coach our current pretender is....
