2007 UCLA Football Outlook

This is my annual UCLA Football outlook. I have have been pretty pessimistic the last few years on the football program. This year provides a little more room for optimism. We beat the hated Trojans in the battle of LA last year which knocked them out of the national championship game. That was sweet. We followed that huge game up with a resounding thud against Florida St in our bowl game. This year we are returning 10 starters on defense and six on offense. Coach Dorrell has named Ben Olsen as the starter over SC game hero Pat Cowan. I'm not sure if I agree with this decision, but its Karl's call. His ass should be on the line this year. If we don't have a good season, he should be fired. This is his fifth year. There's no more room for any excuses. My prediction is a 9 win season. We have some pretty good games lined up on the schedule. Notre Dame visits the Rose Bowl for the first time in a long time. We have a little unfinished business against the Domers from last years collapse at the end of the game. Opening day is tomorrow up at the farm against Stanford. Chalk up a W.
