    Not sure why no one has mentioned this yet, but I think it is pretty significant. I know UCLA's offense sucked last year, but Utah has more weapons, and Chow has always done well with weapons. I think Norm also got stymied/frustrated by Neweasel.

    The Pac 12 race will be wide open next year, with Utah being one of the favorites.

    Utah fans must just love rubbing the noses of BYU with this news.

    My guess is that Utah will benefit and UCLA will continue to struggle under the weasel.

    I think both schools benefit. Utah for obvious reasons. They get a major coaching upgrade, and a known name for recruiting purposes.

    I think UCLA will also benefit because for whatever reason, his offense wasn't working there. They'll be able to bring somebody else in to improve the situation.

    I didn't follow it that closely, but didn't Slick basically overrule Chow and insist on running the pistol offense this year? Not a slam on the pistol offense, especially after they ran over UT it sure seemed like a good move, but I don't think they've really been running Chow's offense (which as I recall is basically more like the pro-style we'll be running now).

    Chow kept trying to throw when they had no one to throw it and no pass protection, the wease's move if forced on Chow made sense.

    I think Chow's best days are way behind him. He is not easy to work with and he does not recruit. I think Chow is solid but not great anymore. UCLA will struggle no matter what. I agree with whomever posted that UCLA is a reflection of their coach - soft.

    Chow hasn't done much since leaving U$C and with that group back then I could have looked like a genius to

    How old is Norm Chow? It seems like he's been around since DBT was in high school.

    Wouldn't that be some kind of Guiness Book of World Record entry?
