4. The interesting interactions with the media will not stop and that is a good thing
It has been an off-season full of interesting topics of conversation. Despite many losing interest in UCLA’s play on the field, there has been plenty of interest with how they have handled interacting with the media.

First, Mora decided to not take his team leader, Josh Rosen, to Pac-12 Media Day, drawing a lot of speculation as to why. And then, when Rosen does talk, he tries to say all the right things, but a overbearing reporter continually tries to question Rosen about his past antics (but it didn’t matter, we couldn’t hear Rosen anyway as he spoke very quietly).
A week later in an interview with Bleacher Report, Rosen puts the whole college football world in a frenzy as he stated that “football and school don’t go together“. Oh, what a wonderful time in Westwood it was after that article was released.
And just last week, Mora made the comment that Rosen will most likely return after this season. Why would he say that?
Either way, it’s extremely entertaining and after last season’s not so entertaining debacle, it has people talking about UCLA Football. Yes, it’s awkward, but I really don’t have a problem with it. The only thing I would like to see is that the Bruins’ production on the field becomes a lot more entertaining than their talk.
