11. Any more early-season suspensions?
A major factor that limited UCLA in their start to the 2018 season were the multiple-game suspensions Kelly gave to several Bruins. With players now in tune to how Chip Kelly runs his football program, we should not see any suspensions to start 2019. And if we do, Kelly might have bigger problems on his hands.
12. The Bruin QBs will run more
The first year of the Chip Kelly era was an experiment. After a whole season of tinkering with his offense, we could see exactly what Chip Kelly was trying to accomplish, especially with the QBs. This past spring, we saw even more, from the signal callers, especially in regards to tucking it and running. This leads me to believe that as the QBs now know what is expected, its time to take things up a notch and give this offense another weapon to use.
13. The Rose Bowl, the best stadium in college football
Even though UCLA went 2-4 at the Rose Bowl last season, it was still a great experience to get out to the Arroyo Seco and enjoy a day with the Bruin Family. Nothing beats a game at the most magnificent stadium in America with the beautiful backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains. It could be a lot worse. You could be at the Coliseum.
14. Could the RBs collectively run for over 3,000 yards?
The Bruins have Joshua Kelley, who could get up to the 1,500 yards on the ground. Can the other RBs cover the balance and collectively put up 1,500 of their own? With the offense improving and the Bruins having six backups at their disposal, it seems that running is going to be the name of the game in 2019. So yes, I am making the prediction that UCLA collectively goes 3,000+ on the ground.
15. Dorian Thompson-Robinson‘s jump
DTR has a lot of experience to build off of from last year. From learning about handling injuries to moving this offense to taking in the words of wisdom from Wilton Speight, Thompson-Robinson is ready to make that jump from freshmen to sophomore year. There are a few things he needs to work on, but for the most part, we will see a more confident dual-threat QB this fall.
