41. Prince Molson?
Did you know that former UCLA Basketball player Luc Richard Mbah a Moute was a prince? Of course you did, because every announcer that called a UCLA basketball game said so. Are we going to be hearing the same about new UCLA kicker J.J. Molson, who is a descendant of the Molson family of Montreal? You know, Molson beer? How many times are we going to hear about that this year? (Insert eye rolling emoji.)
42. Road Warriors Again?
Aside from a horrible loss at USC and in the Foster Farms Bowl to end the year, the Bruins have been pretty damn good on the road. Will it continue this year? We will see, but it will be difficult as the Bruins start at Texas A&M and at BYU in two of their first three games.
43. A Proper Bowl
Not only should UCLA be stepping up their game and aiming for a Pac-12 championship, but they should also be gunning for a top-tier bowl. None of this Foster Farms or Alamo or Holiday Bowl nonsense. UCLA needs to get into a New Year’s Day bowl, prefer preferably the Rose Bowl game.
44. Will the 4-3 Stop the Run?
The goal for the defense is to not happen what happened last season. The Bruins were just horrible stopping the run and that needs to change. While solidifying the defense in a 4–3, the Bruins should have a better chance of stopping the run this year.
45. Does Power Bring Diamonds?
Diamonds are Bruins best friend. At least they were the last couple years when the Bruins used defensive players in an offensive power set. Though UCLA will be utilizing more power schemes, hopefully we continue to see the power formation that has been so successful for them in the last few years.
