    270 total yards for UCLA against the Fresno state juggernaut. It's possible that Chip Kelly has a winless season.

    "No one feels sorry for you," UCLA coach Chip Kelly said. "We knew this was a really good football team coming in. We knew that it's one of the best teams in the Mountain West and we had to be prepared to play, and obviously they did a better job."

    I am thankful we do not have Chip Kelly. I know you were in his camp OX, but he is not a total coach to me. He only cares about running as many offensive plays possible without regard to how it might affect the other aspects of his team. I know UCLA is low on talent and it is not all Chip's fault they are awful, but am thankful he is 3000 miles away. Does not mean I am in the Cousin Eddie camp, but at least Cousin Eddie sometimes fakes like he he is a total head coach. Chip makes no bones about his desires.

      Chip Kelly just really seems to me to be a lazy coach. I would have been excited to have him back during the search but I think we really dodged a bullet. We know UF is going to be a road to fix. Kelly's to me, seems like one he'll bolt or be gone. That potentially would make it an even bigger problem.

        Same as above - I think their biggest issue is they are recruiting about like a mountain west team right now. I wanted him hired but I am starting to think we dodged a bullet here and he just doesn't have the passion to do his job anymore.

        I thought it was important to get buzz back around the program. One major issue with Dan Mullen is he brought absolutely no buzz with him. He excited no one. Perhaps in the long run he was best for the program, I guess we'll see.

          Dan had a great mentor in Urban for a long time and he did all his HC ojt on somebody else's nickel. He is down to earth and admits he is learning everyday too.

          We could have done a hell of a lot worse, imo.

              I wanted chip too. It seems like a positive he didn’t come - in looking at our team we simply don’t have the players for his system. Just about nobody can win much with this bunch mac left, and mullin frost Kelly Taggart etc have shown they don’t have a magic formula. Hell this group is not even recruiting great. The next Kirby smart is out there problem is nobody knows who it is.

              I get it and you're spot on. Mullen is not a WOW hire. But I will say this....he is happy to be here, engaged, and it does appear that we are getting some better coaching and discipline. Not had that in a long time. I will be more willing to give him time as opposed to Muschump and MacNussy. They never seemed to get it or want it. Not saying that he will be, but Mulllen could be a Dabo type of hire. Give it some time and lets see. Now if he loses the team or becomes a dumpster fire, that'll change. It's really up to Mullen and I think he gets it. Fingers crossed.

                You bring buzz or you create it on your own. Guess who gets the greater appreciation in the end?
