I haven’t seen a write-up on this game so I felt I would
give it a shot. I think this game is a little off the
radar in week 1.
UCLA – Huge underachiever last season. 4-8. Chou gone, Neuheisel has one of the hottest coaching seats
west of the Mississippi.
3rd most starters lost to injury
(o-line devastated). 58
starts lost for season.·
Bruins had the 4th toughest schedule
in country. Out of conf. LY @ K State, Texas, Houston·
-11 in takeaways (tied for 7th highest in D-11).
So there you go. You lose starters to injury, your
schedule is tough, and you lose the rock, you are going to lose and lose
often. That was 2010. In 2011, UCLA has had no huge injuries in practice. They return 9 starters on offense, 8 on
defense. Strengths of the
team appear to be running game, o-line, d-line. QB play is a question, but I don’t think it will be needed
vs. Houston anyway.
HOUSTON - Also
underachieved last season (5-7) but they are given a pass going into 2011
solely because of QB Keenum getting injured in UCLA game and being OFY. As usual, the Houston defense
