Pac-10: New Era at UCLA

By Jason Owens - July 27, 2006

Coming off a 10-2 season and Sun Bowl victory, UCLA coach Karl Dorrell is excited about the state of Bruins football.

"We're eager and optimistic about our season," Dorrell said to the media. "We had a tremendous season last year and it was fun to watch our team grow and mature. It's fun to be in this program at this time."

It's so fun, that it's raised expectations within the program which hadn't had a 10-win season in seven years until 2005.

"The next step for UCLA football is a Pac-10 championship," said wide receiver Junior Taylor. "Last year, we made great strides, but we are not satisfied with 10-2. We want to be the best and win the Pac-10."

And while things are certainly looking up at UCLA, this isn't likely the year the Bruins make a big breakthrough. They should be competetive, but with the departures of quarterback Drew Olson and running back Maurice Drew, UCLA has a lot of inexperience at key positions.
