What’s Bruin Show – Episode 69 – UCLA Football Preseason Madness!


In Episode 69 of the What’s Bruin Show, we talk about all things UCLA Football as we dive into the preseason and talk rankings, rants, suspensions, injuries, fall camp and even a little Sark.

In this latest episode, hosts Bill Shirley, Jake Merrifield and I cover everything UCLA Football from San Bernardino to Westwood as we get into the state of the Bruins heading into the season opener which is just over one week away against Virginia at the Rose Bowl.

We start things off by recapping fall camp at Cal State San Bernardino and take a look at the good and the bad of UCLA Football’s desert scrimmage. One thing is for sure, which we all agree on, the defense under new Defensive Coordinator Tom Bradley is scary good.

We then cut down the critics that think Head Coach Jim Mora‘s rant to freshman quarterback Josh Rosenwho is now the staring QB – went to far. No it did not.

We finish up our analysis of the preseason with a quick chat about the UCLA Football team’s #13 ranking, the suspension of Adrian Klemm and a short injury report.

We then have a bit of fun at the expense of USC Head Coach Steve Sarkisian after he had a not so good night over the weekend at the ‘Salute to Troy’.

We then end with our revised Pac-12 predictions (again) which are actually a bit shocking, especially our perception of the Pac-12 North.
