Loss Gives Bruin Fans a Case of the Blahs
After listening to UCLA coaches, blah, blah, blah, blah, we are still learning. Blah, blah, blah, I had a better perspective from the coaches’ box! (That was brilliant.) Made too many mistakes, because blah, blah, blah, blah. It looks like a losing season and Steve Spurrier looks like a great possibility.
Karl Dorrell is a fortunate coach today, because he still has a job with a 5-4 record. That wouldn’t be true at Florida or other schools with high expectations.
