UCLA Spring Practice 2010: Bruins Load Their Revolver, Retool Defense

After going from a 4-8 record in 2008 to a 7-6 team that won a bowl game in 2009, UCLA Head Coach Rick Neuheisel emphasized an urgency to maintain momentum that the football program has generated. As a unit that is currently mired in the lower half of the Pac-10, they’ll need to double last season’s conference win total of three to make a legitimate statement to their Pac-10 competitors.

2010 is Coach Neuheisel’s third season coaching the Bruins. His upperclassmen should be well versed in his football philosophies, and more attuned to his strategies. As the team is physically capable of returning to a bowl game, CRN reiterated the higher expectations he has for UCLA Football. With big games against Kansas State and Texas on tap for September, no time can be wasted.

The Bruins lost four captains with the departing senior class. Reggie Carter’s, Terrence Austin’s, Logan Paulson’s and Alterraun Verner’s leadership will all have to be replaced. Spring Practice is the time for this season’s key veterans to not only improve their overall game, but help their teammates get better as well.

One week into Spring Football, the Bruins have featured talented athletes who stepped up and are sure to have their names in the mix come fall, other players who have sustained an injury or underachieved thus far, and some tinkering with the offensive game plan.
