Audio/Video of Petros going off on a massive 13 minute tirade at Lane Kiffin during last night's Petros & Money show. It's a must listen for anyone who is baffled by this particular Lane Kiffin response to why there are 6 Pac 12 teams in the top 25 rankings. I quote.
“It's the result of us not nailing recruiting over the last five years," Kiffin said Sunday when asked Read more
I see everyone is going ape shit over the outfit that Russell Westbrook wore to the post game press conference after game one of the western conference semi finals. For those of you who missed it, here is what Russell decided to put on his body before speaking to the media. Now do I think that it's a horrible outfit? Kind of, mainly because of the gold that is Read more
I ran into some guy named Barry Sanders last night at a party and I asked him, "hey, aren't you the black Steven Manfro?"
Here are couple of my Steven Manfro observations from watching the spring practices so far.
During scrimmage, a swing pass was thrown to Steven Manfro from Richard Brehaut and to my amazement, after catching the pass Steven did not accelerate but rather just nonchalantly walked down the Read more
I get about 3 emails a week from this little blog of mine and about 3 of those tend to be from other bruin fans who love the fact that I am updating the UCLA image up to the modern times (aka. nike) with a little help my friend photoshop. So here is one more poster for UCLA football and personally my favorite so far. Attack with passion, go Read more
Above you see the potential 3-4 defense that UCLA might run in the upcoming football season, the whole thing is predicated on having a large nose tackle and tweener defensive tackles that will clog up the gaps in the line, while having speedy line backers to increase the coverage of the field in both pass and run situations. Or at least, that is what is stated on Wikipedia. Now Read more
BOOM! Inside you will find highlights of UCLA’s defensive masterpiece against the Houston Cougars. It’s a different ballgame when you don’t have a 30 year old virgin slinging money shots all over the field isn’t is Houston? The final score was 37 – 6 in favor of UCLA but it really should not have been that close. Brett Hundley was looking like a red shirt freshman quarterback at times, appearing a bit confused and not seeing or hitting the wide open wide receivers who were presented in front of him. It was almost as though Brett was channeling his inner Matt Barkley and Houston Cougar’s defense was channeling their inner “White Chocolate” D Line from Stanford. Okay, maybe it wasn’t that bad (if you have not checked it out yet, see Barkley’s goofy ass face become all teary eyed during this terrorist hostage like post game press conference).
Anyway, following highlights are available inside:
- UCLA’s 5 interception against the Houston Cougars
- 3 TDs UCLA scored. One on the fumble recovery by Eric Kendricks, one with Datone Jones catching a pass wearing number 97, and a final one on a swing pass to Jordan James.
- Death clutch your panties tight ladies, Manfro highlights including the late touchdown at the end.
- My man Damien “Gone” Thigpen’s awesome night including his kick off return.
- Ka’imi Fairbairn’s going 3 for 3 in his field goals because I thought we would always have to go for two after the Rice game. And also because I love FG highlights. FUCK YEAH FIELD GOALS!!!

That’s Nick Ekbatani above doing what I counted to be 75 jump ropes on one leg. Let me repeat that, 75 on one damn leg, which is about 74 more than what I can do on two damn legs. Man, I love his camera man who also appears to be his trainer telling him, “no excuses!” Screaming no excuses to a guy who is jump roping on one leg huh? I would love for that trainer to come to my house during my workout days where I tend to procrastinate because I feel a bit of tightness on my left side burn. No excuses? My left hair follicle has a minor sprain, it’s a no go day coach.
If you have not done so it would serve you good to check out Nick’s blog because there is some fascinating stuff being written down where Nick seems to be detailing his recovery process in real time. Here is an excerpt from his most recent post.
30 minutes later, I leave the gym. My clothes are saturated in sweat. My muscles are swollen with blood. I am fatigued beyond belief and slightly lightheaded. Amputees require up to 40% more oxygen than normal people and I am no exception. Every time my crutches hit the ground and my body swings through, I require a small break to breathe. I am exhausted. As if I had just swam to the surface from the bottom of the ocean, I desperately gasp for air. Im exhausted…and its never felt so damn good.
The doctors said I should still be in bed…my body has decided differently. This is my grind and I wouldn’t want it any different. Through every adverse day…I am gifted with the chance of redemption. I push on, I fight forward, I never give up…so naturally, most days are easy.
Check out the above video edited by yours truly. I created the clips because I wanted to emphasize what Anthony Barr did during the Nebraska game while playing the OLB position in a 3-4 scheme. Not only is Anthony a terror off the edge due to his legit 4.5 speed, he is also a nightmare in the pass coverage because of his past experience in playing offense. Pass rush, run coverage, pass coverage, covering literally everyone in the back field, Barr can do it all.
When watching the video stick around for the last clip titled “Playing Everybody” where Barr penetrates the backfield to lay a wood on the Nebraska running back only to realize that Taylor Martinez has kept the ball, therefore, Barr changes direction in a dime and says I will make the tackle on T-Mart as well.
One of the posts that I really enjoy on bruinreportonline is a weekly synopsis done by a poster named LaFemmeBruin who captures essence of what occurred in the previous weekend’s game in MS paint form. So with her consent I now present to you LaFemmeBruin’s MS Paint review of what exactly transpired during the UCLA vs Nebraska game. Click “read more” below or the above pic to see the rest. Enjoy.
Amazing game for the UCLA bruins, Johnathan Franklin ran through Nebraska like they were made out of Rice, Brett Hundley looked great throwing the ball against a much better defense (someone tell Brett to slide quickly instead of river dancing), Manfro caught a pass and then caused a world wide swooning that was registered on the richter scale after revealing his facefro, and most importantly no extra points were blocked, OMG OMG it’s so intense…. what a game!
Inside you will find the highlights of the following:
