UCLA Football: Who Can Fill the Empty Passion Bucket?

A man forlorn: Rick Neuheisel.

The passion bucket is empty at UCLA. 

Rick Neuheisel is a dead man walking, a lame-duck head coach, with seemingly no way back now after the 48-12 embarrassment (train wreck? disaster? In the words of Bomani Jones, beat 'em down) suffered at the hands of Arizona last night.

The team came out flat, uninspired and immature. Penalties, a halftime fight and dropped passes only begin to scratch the surface of what has gone wrong the last three-and-a-half years in Westwood

The saddest thing about this is that Neuheisel is a UCLA grad, at his dream job, and I would hire him any day of the week to be a motivational speaker. His fire, love for the school and never-quit attitude are admirable on so many levels.

But his time has come, the death bell tolls and it's now time to start talking about a new head coach for UCLA.

Here are some potential names being bandied about, along with my personal choices.
