In the latest ‘What’s Bruin Show’, we have multiple shows for you to sink your teeth into as we prepare for the UCLA football team’s season opener against Cincinnati, as well as bring you a solid interview from former Bruin, Wayne Cook.

In this latest episode, your hosts Bill Shirley, Jake Merrifield and I kick off our 5th-anniversary show with several huge episodes. We start off with our weekly show as we preview UCLA football and their upcoming battle with the Cincinnati Bearcats.

We also have special WB2 as we interview former UCLA QB and current sideline reporter for the Bruins’ radio broadcast, Wayne Cook. He joins us to talk about the start of the new era and he is just as excited as us!

But first, let us get into episode 176. The guys and I talk about a few developments with the Bruins as it was announced that six players have been suspended for the season opener.

We discuss how this affects the Bruins from a roster standpoint as well as Kelly trying to establish a set of standards for discipline.

Did you know that UCLA actually released a depth chart? It is quite the change from the Mora era as Chip Kelly has actually released one and we discuss what this means for the season opener on Saturday.

Speaking of the season opener, we get back to one of our favorite segments, ‘The Game That Wil Be’. Oh college football, it is glad to have you back!

We start things off with Jake’s opponent trivia as we learn about some of the histories of the Bearcats. We then get into what Cincy brings to the Rose Bowl as we preview the game and give our predictions.

All of this and more in Episode 176 of the podcast you all know and love, the What’s Bruin Show.  Be sure to subscribe to WBS on iTunes. You can also listen via Podomatic.com and Stitcher
