    Here is the how article starts:

    Welcome, friends, to the lowest point in modern UCLA football history.

    UCLA lost to Oregon State at home on Saturday night, and not in a close game, but in a near-blowout, with the Beavers marching up and down the field all night against the Bruins to the tune of a 48-31 trouncing. The only thing limiting Oregon State’s offense was the weird desire from Jonathan Smith to run the ball -- had he not seen any film on UCLA’s secondary this year?

    Chip Kelly’s program is adrift, and the program is at such a low point that we can’t even find an appropriate analog in recent UCLA history. Really think about that -- in this lost 20 years for UCLA football, we still can’t find a point in time where the program sunk to these depths. This is the nadir -- or, at least, until the next game.

    Never have things been this bad this early in a coach’s tenure, and, in modern history, never have things been this bad, well, period. UCLA is 4-14 through the first 1.5 years of the Chip Kelly era, and it’s hard to even piece together an 18 game chunk of time where UCLA was that inept. Since 1943, this is basically the worst two consecutive years for the Bruins, and it might turn out to be the worst consecutive years literally ever depending on how the back six go.

    As much anguish, anger and frustration that we have been feeling over our program, at least the Bruins are nice enough to give us something to smile about.....

    I think Oregon St is ahead of Washington in the PAC12 standings too.

    Y'all be careful out there. My neighbor parked outside the local grocery store for tailgating supplies before yesterday's game. He had 2 Bruins tickets on the console when they broke in his car. When my neighbor got back, they left 4 more.

    Just another indication of how horrible a coach Helton is

    While we are mired in mediocrity, at least we haven't sunk to the depths of fucla.

    SC has 3 wins and ucla has 1. Even if both lost every game from now on, SC technically hasn't sucked to the depths of ucla, a team some people last year had them winning the PAC/going to the playoffs this season.

    Why do I think you got that from an SEC board? It was the "y'all" that gave it away. I saw it yesterday with a reference to Vols tickets.

    I swear I didn't. My brother and I text bRuin jokes back and forth. Turning your question around, why do you think I'd frequent an SEC board?

    How many of you remember the fair weather Trojan fans in the off season after the loss to OSU in the Cotton Bowl fuming and lamenting that USC didn't pursue Chip Kelly?
