I’ll be honest. This job is getting less fun by the day.
Covering UCLA Bruins sports can be a blast. It can also be a nightmare from which there is no escape, but I’ve never felt this level of despondence. Even during the Steve Alford years, I never had this level of despair because, at the very least, Alford was bringing in talent that a better coach could put in a better situation to succeed. Through two games of the second year, that doesn’t appear to be the case for Chip Kelly and UCLA football. I know I try to stay out of macro commentary here, and focus more on the week to week micro issues, but it should again be pointed out that all of the problems on this team are problems created by the current coaching staff.
