All I have been hearing about from UCLA fans the last few weeks is about how great the UCLA defense is. Okay, UCLA has some quality defense players in Price, the Bosworth boys, Carter, Ayers, Verner and Moore...... but if UCLA's defense is / was so great, then why did they rank 85th nationally in scoring defense and 89th nationally against the run last season? Okay so some of that has to do with UCLA being minus 10 in turnover margin last year (ranked 104 nationally) and yes, UCLA's defense was ranked 8th nationally against the pass, but really, does that sound like a good defense to you?
UCLA is an improving team and they will move into the upper reigon of the PAC 10 in the next few years with how they have been recruiting under Coach RN.
I still think Hardesty and Bryce and our O-line can't wait to run all over the 89th best rushing defense in the nation. If UT runs the ball, UT wins period.
