    Wow...don’t want to be pressured into returning to the game. Just when I thought it couldn’t be worse than ice cream U...we have sponge cake U across town. Ought to do wonders for any NFL aspirations.

    I gotta say, I was genuinely concerned when Chip took the fucla job. Very glad to have been wrong.

    Me too. I was certain that UCLA had found the worthy successor to Red Sanders and Tommy Prothro. After all, Chip's Oregon teams were terrors on the field, and I thought UCLA would be an Oregon redux.

    I'm also glad to have been dead wrong.

    However, a couple Bruin fans I know feel that Chip needs a full 5 years to implement his program.

    I'd be happy to let him have it!

    Learned a valuable lesson. Chip was one slice he was not the whole pie. He had a good , OC and DC.

    He's never been able to replace them at UCLA and does not have the goods to go at it alone.

    ucla doesn’t have the investor that Oregon had. Uncle Phil Knight doesn’t write the checks!

    Chip's a good coach. If they'll leave him alone and let him coach the team without interference, he will probably in time make them a winner. They won't do that. That's not the their style.

    Another thing might be that Chippy might not be able to get the players at UCLA that he was able to get at Oregon.

    When Chip was available, I was in the camp of “Don’t want him here, but also don’t want him at UCLA.” Fortunately, it looks like Chip didn’t take the ucla job to run his college offense and be a long-term ucla coach, but rather to prove to the NFL that he could successfully run a more pro-style offense. And that hasn’t happened. He’s going to need more talent to pull that off, and so far, he isn’t getting it.

    I have a different take: have always thought Chip was set up for success at Oregon by (1) inheriting a very solid program and momentum from a better coach in Mike Bellotti, and (2) having Phil Knight pour money and influence in support. He did well with it but those factors made him look like a better coach than he actually is. The UCLA job, and in many ways his pro experience, has exposed him as a good, not great coach.

    I don't think "concerned" would be the word I would have used, but I did think that Kelly would be bringing some of the Southern California prospects to UCLA.
    He is trying to bring his Oregon tactics to Los Angeles, which I never thought was going to work because there is so much high-level talent that is ready to come in and contribute immediately.
    To shun them and go for more project types to build that blue-collar program in a city/area like Los Angeles is like trying to build a farm in the middle of Times Square (to me) smh.
