In his first season as the head coach of UCLA football, viagra Jim Mora appeared to be taking the Bruins in a new direction. A year after Rick Neuheisel’s last Bruin team’s “over the wall” mentality lead to a series of embarrassments culminating in a 50-0 loss to USC in the Coliseum that finally got Dan Guerrero to issue the pink slip, link Mora’s Bruins whipped Lane Kiffin’s team 38-28 in the Rose Bowl, cialis with an exclamation point delivered by linebacker Anthony Barr.

The Bruins had bested the Trojans for the first time in five years and it wasn’t an ugly upset like 13-9 either, but a full-scale, all phases of the game, sound defeat. Things would be different in LA from now on, it seemed. Long live, Jim Mora!

It was a beautiful spring morning on campus today. The sun was shining. It was you would expect from a perfect day during Spring quarter.

What made it more perfect was that football was being played.

Spring practice is a time for learning and there was a lot of learning going on. While the talking points might say that UCLA doesn’t have a new system, the approach of the coaching staff appears to be very instructive as there do seem to be a lot of changes to the Bruins’ offensive and defensive systems..

UCLA held another practice Friday morning, medications which was notable specifically because it was the first practice in full pads. For me, full pad practices means we’re closer than ever to the start of the actual season, but it also increases the chances of injuries. So, let’s get into this practice.

The biggest non-pads development of the practice is the offense’s continued development. Gone are the days of “5 plays on the napkin”, but, at the same time, the offense that’s been seen in practice really has eluded the definition of “pro-style”. For example, in today’s practice, we saw an actual quarterback rollout. I’ve heard tales that this could exist in an offense, but I did not truly believe until this day. Actually, let’s go to Thuc Nhi Nguyen at Inside SoCal for details on this rarest of offensive plays:

Pregame Guesses: UCLA Bruins v. Texas A&M AggiesCan UCLA’s Fabian Moreau and company keep Texas A&M’s highly touted receivers out of the end zone tomorrow? – Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Bruins Nation’s first installment of 2016 UCLA Football Pregame Guesses! For those of you new to the site or this feature, Pregame Guesses mixes the author’s musical selection with three questions about tomorrow’s football game. Sometimes we throw in a bonus question.

If I am lucky I can find a theme between the music, the tenor of the program in the moment, and the questions presented. Sometimes you have to squint hard to see it. This feature was created and maintained by Achilles years ago–at least back to 2008; this is only my second year writing the article and following in the huge footsteps left by Achilles. I hope you enjoy this and future iterations of “PGG” this season.

To give you a flavor of my musical taste, here are the musical selections from last years PGGs, along with the opponent whom we would play one day later, and the sometimes tenuous connections.

Virginia-“London Calling,” The Clash (former UVA Head Coach, Mike London, London Calling . . .)

UNLV-Bruinette pinch hit for me with “Sin City”, AC/DC (for obvious reasons)

BYU-“Barbarism Begins at Home,” The Smiths (ha, ha, ha, this selection still makes me laugh as this was right after there was a kerfuffle about BYU being a “dirty” team)

Arizona-“I Won’t back Down,” Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (the injuries were racking up and I was still optimistic . . .)

Arizona State-“So Far Away,” Social Distortion (personal connection from ASU road trip while a student)

Stanford-Violent Femmes-To The Kill (Stanford’s “preppy” nature and their irreverent band reminded by of the Femmes live)

U.C. Berkeley-“The Unknown Road,” Pennywise (I was angry after two straight losses)

Colorado-“Eyes of a Stranger,” The Payolas (no connection at all, just a fine piece of 80s one-hit-wonder cheese)

Oregon State-“What Goes Boom,” The Pixies (would UCLA’s O blow up in a good way, or would its D blow up in a bad way? UCLA won 41-0.

Washington State-“Best of You,” Foo Fighters ( thank you Ka’imi Fairbairn on senior day)

Utah-“Stadium Love,” Metric (would we get any at Rice-Eccles?)

Southern Cal-“Sons of Westwood” and “The Mighty Bruins,” The Solid Gold Sound of The UCLA Marching Band (duh)

Nebraska-“All Mixed Up” (Nebraska band with a SoCal sound, not to mention how caddywhompus UCLA football and its fans were feeling going into–not to mention after–that game)
