Thanks for the welcome to B/R! I'm very excited to contribute to the UCLA football page and work with you and Jason. I'll let to know if I have any questions. Thanks again.
Jeff, you're not the first person (nor the last) to have issues with the font. I'm glad I could help, and I'm gladder (word?) that you caught it so quickly. I'm glad to be on your team. (That was a lame joke, but I've been waiting quite a while to use it!)
Hey Jeff...I saw the piece you did on the possible UCLA recruits and looked at the Hayden Rettig film. I was ver surprised that someone would submit film like that, showing fumbles, incompletions, etc. I wonder if kids like Rettig get interest simply because they are big and may have a strong arm, although you couldn't tell that from film.
I would unashamedly put my son's High School film, http://www.hudl.com/athlete/72492/highlights/1982374 up against 90% of guy's films out there.
Right now he "grey shirted" at Mt Sac. JC in Southern Cal and is going to get his turn next season. He's looking for a great D1 fit both academically and the football program, hence the reason for going JUCO out of High School.
He"ll get his looks coming up real soon!
Glad to help, Jeff. It can be tough to keep all the formatting stuff straight. Hope to read your work again soon.
You're welcome, Jeff! If I can be of assistance, do feel free to leave me a post. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for becoming a fan, Jeff! I see that you are a UCLA alum – that's awesome! I actually went to Cal, but am originally from LA (just over the hill in Sherman Oaks). A good friend of mine and NBA writer for B/R is actually a UCLA alum as well, Josh Martin (http://bleacherreport.com/users/264428-josh-martin).
I see you are pretty new to B/R — how are you liking it so far? Solid Pac-12 article by the way.
