    Ucla routed Oregon. The Bruins may be horrible, but the ducks are worse. So I'm still calling our win a sign of progress.
    Yes.

    We've had a couple of head-scratcher performances - Stanford & ASU. I was impressed with how we played @ USC, the Oregon loss was a fragile team that had a couple of plays - Carrington's strip for a 60 yard TD and that circus play where Nelson heaved up a TD pass after getting his balance back from a hand to the turf - that snowballed on them.

    ANY PAC-12 win is a valuable "W". In this league, this year, any team can really beat any other team. UCLA's defense fell apart in the 2nd half, but our offense needed some confidence, so hopefully that carries over.

    Somehow find a way to get to a bowl. We need lots and lots of practice.

    Im still optimistic about this team--for next year. UCLA showed that Huntley can throw accurately when healthy, esp. on the run, and see the field when extending plays. He should be much better with another year of experience. He is not as good a runner, but a much better passer than Tate. The o line improved after 53 was replaced. Moss ran like he did against USC. Receivers played well w/o Carrington in the 2nd half.

    As KW said, that is what the o is supposed to be. Next year it should be be (knock on wood).
