What’s Bruin Show – Episode 87 – UCLA Bruined and the Future of Football


In Episode 87 of the What’s Bruin Show, we talk about the UCLA Football team’s Foster Farms Bowl loss and what this means for the team going forward. We also preview UCLA Basketball’s conference opening weekend and end up with some “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” conversation.

In this latest episode, hosts Bill Shirley, Jake Merrifield and I welcome back long-time guest host Suzanne Shirley as we talk about the UCLA Football team and their no-show in the Foster Farms Bowl. UCLA was run over by the Nebraska Cornhuskers 37-29 in a head-scratcher of a game.

So what does this mean for the Bruins, especially with several players expected to declare for the NFL Draft? And with all of that happening, what does the future of UCLA Football hold? Continuing on that topic, what will define UCLA becoming elite and are they capable of obtaining that?
