UCLA Football: Why Rick Neuheisel Shouldn't Finish Season In Charge of Bruins

The calls for Rick Neuheisel's head have been growing ever since the season began. UCLA's recent 45-19 loss against the Stanford Cardinal has not helped matters, with the team falling to 2-3.

To date, Neuheisel is 17-25 at UCLA and a pitiful 9-20 in conference play. He has only one bowl victory to his name. During his tenure, Bruin fans have had to bear 14 losses by 20 or more points. He has yet to beat USC which, according to some fans, is more important than a winning season.

As for winning seasons, Neuheisel has only had one (7-6 in 2009) in three years at UCLA. Compare that to three in four years at Colorado and four out of four in Washington.

Where has the winning gone? 

I completely understand the popular sentiment to fire Neuheisel immediately. While I personally would show him the door in the coming offseason, some fans can't wait that long. You want blood, and every day Neuheisel stains his decorative legacy as a UCLA player physically pains you.

Enough with the bewildered sideline looks, the shouting, the relentless optimism in the face of overwhelming pessimism; you want him gone.

In that spirit, here are four reasons why the embattled Bruins head coach should be fired before season's end.
