UCLA athlete dismissed from team after racist comments, outcry among students

UCLA athlete Chris Weiland was dismissed Monday from the cross country and track & field team after video of him making racist, sexist and homophobic comments surfaced across social media platforms Sunday. Weiland, a Rancho Cucamonga High graduate, was heard talking to his mother on the phone during the video while making the remarks. “When first learning of this a few months ago, I was disgusted and immediately suspended him indefinitely from the team,” said Avery Anderson, UCLA’s Director of T...

UCLA football hires Ryan Gunderson as quarterback coach

UCLA hired San Jose State quarterback coach Ryan Gunderson for the same position Friday. The Bruins’ football program filled the vacancy a week after Dana Bible, who spent three seasons on coach Chip Kelly’s staff, announced his retirement. Gunderson joined the Spartans’ coaching staff in 2017 as quarterbacks coach before his role expanded to passing game coordinator in 2018. He was a 2019 nominee for the Broyles Award, honoring college football’s top assistant coaches. Quarterback Josh Love fin...

UCLA quarterback coach Dana Bible retires after three seasons

Quarterback coach Dana Bible has decided to retire after three seasons at UCLA, according to multiple reports. Bible coached quarterbacks such as Russell Wilson (North Carolina State) and Matt Ryan (Boston College) during his 45-year coaching career.

UCLA football promotes Jerry Neuheisel to wide receivers coach

UCLA has promoted Jerry Neuheisel to wide receivers coach after spending seven of the past nine seasons with the program as a back-up quarterback and most recently a graduate assistant coach working with receivers. Neuheisel, who started his coaching career at Texas A&M as an offensive quality control coach in 2017 before returning to UCLA, will replace former receivers coach Jimmie Dougherty, who was named an assistant at Arizona. UCLA coach Chip Kelly brought Neuheisel back to UCLA as a gradua...

5 key UCLA football players take advantage of extra year of eligibility

Junior quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson is among the five UCLA players who have announced that they will stay with the football program for the 2021 season. Several UCLA players are in the process of deciding whether to leave the program (for the NFL Draft, to transfer, or for other reasons) or to stay for another year. It’s more complicated this year since the NCAA granted all players an extra year of eligibility as a result of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. Thompson-Robinson, who has ...

UCLA football blows lead, then can’t finish in double overtime loss to Stanford

PASADENA >> UCLA scored 31 unanswered points to fuel a second half rally that gave the Bruins a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, but Stanford came back to tie and force overtime, and then the Cardinal hung on for a 48-47 double-overtime victory in the Pac-12 finale for both teams at the Rose Bowl on Saturday after the Bruins’ do-or-die game-winning two-point conversion came up short. Running back Brittain Brown set career-highs with 219 rushing yards on 29 carries, but on his final play of t...

UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson out for second half against Stanford

PASADENA >> UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson suffered a leg injury during the second quarter against Stanford on Saturday and his night was finished. The UCLA athletic department announced that the junior quarterback would not return. The extend of his injuries are not known, but Thompson-Robinson returned from the locker room to watch the second half with the aid of crutches and was seeing icing his right knee. Thompson-Robinson needed assistance leaving the field following his injury....

UCLA football prepares for ‘well-coached’ Stanford in finale

While the UCLA football team ruled out participating in a bowl game for this season, the Bruins still have something to play for on Saturday against Stanford in the Rose Bowl (ESPN, 4 p.m. PST). Quarterback Dorian Thompson Robinson and defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa hope to lead the Bruins (3-3) to their first winning season since 2015. “We have a handful of seniors and you want to end on a high note going into the next year,” Thompson-Robinson said. “… I don’t think anybody took this year for...

Alexander: Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott gives another unbelievable performance

Listening to Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott’s Zoom conference on Thursday, in the run-up to Friday night’s conference football championship* game between USC and Oregon, I was struck by a comparison. And I don’t think he’ll like it. Scott reminds me a lot of Frank McCourt, the reviled former owner of the Dodgers – i.e., the guy who used the ballclub as his personal ATM and ultimately ran it into the ground. That’s not the exact comparison I had in mind, though it might fit. The similarity that ...

UCLA announces that Saturday’s game against Stanford will be its last of 2020

UCLA’s football season will end this weekend. UCLA (3-3) and Stanford (3-2) will meet Saturday at the Rose Bowl Bowl at 5 p.m., and a win would give the Bruins a winning record, making them eligible for a post-season Bowl game. However, the UCLA athletic department met with Bruins coach Chip Kelly and consulted with players, and the school came to the decision that Saturday’s game would be their final one, as they will decline any Bowl invitation and end their season following Saturday’s game ag...

Dorian Thompson-Robinson likes UCLA’s football future – with or without him

Whether or not Saturday is the final game for UCLA junior quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, he says it’s a different place and vibe than when he stepped on campus in 2018 after leading Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High to a state championship his senior year. UCLA (3-3) takes on Stanford (3-2) in Saturday’s Pac-12 finale at 5 p.m. at the Rose Bowl. If the Bruins win, it would make them bowl eligible and extend the chance of continuing their season. Thompson-Robinson has been through it all at UC...

How will UCLA close out the early signing period?

Redshirt freshman receiver Kam Brown is expected to highlight UCLA’s 2021 recruiting class during the early signing period as the lone four-star recruit in the class. Brown announced his verbal commitment to the Bruins in late November and will have four seasons of eligibility upon his arrival at UCLA. The Texas A&M transfer, who originally committed to UCLA as a high school junior, is the son of Super Bowl XXX MVP and former Dallas Cowboys defensive back Larry Brown. The Bruins’ recruiting clas...

UCLA players focused on Stanford, not a Bowl game

UCLA football coach Chip Kelly talks about “the process” and focusing on just the day in front of his team. That focus has rubbed off on everyone. Take this week for example. UCLA (3-3) will face Stanford (3-2) on Saturday at the Rose Bowl at 5 p.m., in its Pac-12 finale, and at stake is a possible bowl berth should the Bruins win. Teams need to be over .500 to become bowl eligible. When Kelly was asked about bowl game possibilities on Monday, he would always return to being focused on Stanford ...

UCLA football players reach milestones on offense

UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich’s performance against USC proved why he is among the best tight ends in college football this season. Dulcich recorded career-highs in receptions (eight) and receiving yards (167) in the Bruins’ 43-38 loss to their crosstown rival. “You guys know that he’s my roommate and stuff so we have a wonderful connection,” UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson said. “He’s worked his tail off this whole offseason and continues to, and it shows on the field.” Dulcich is stati...

UCLA thought it won in final minute only to watch USC win in final seconds

PASADENA >> UCLA has played some of its best football in the fourth quarter this season, but it will be kicking itself how it handled the final minute of its biggest one in a tough 43-38 loss to crosstown rival USC on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl. Coming into the 90th meeting between the two teams, the Bruins’ defense had only allowed nine points in the fourth quarter and had its way with opponents offensively. But not this time. USC outscored the Bruins 20-3 in the final period and were the ...

Alexander: On its own terms, pandemic or no pandemic, USC-UCLA was a classic

This game deserved a full house, really. It deserved the USC and UCLA bands competing to drown each other out. It deserved the SC student section waving the victory sign during “Conquest,” and the UCLA students responding by waving their car keys at the USC students because, you know, tuition. (But please, no Aunt Becky jokes.) USC-UCLA did get the national audience it deserved Saturday evening. And that audience got a show that reminded the nation why Pac-12 After Dark can be consistently so da...

Whicker: Trojans overcome all obstacles, including themselves, to keep unbeaten season alive

So who are they? The worst good team in college football? The best bad team in college football? Are they better at dodging bullets, or throwing them, at those final, fire-alarm moments? Or, at this point, does it matter? Thirty years after Todd Marinovich threw enough lightning, in this very same Rose Bowl, to outlast Tommy Maddox, USC’s Kedon Slovis brushed a 28-10 deficit off his lapels and kept coming up with touchdowns until he had enough. The decisive one was an 8-yard scoring pass to Amon...

UCLA football must play smart against No. 16 USC

When UCLA hosts No. 16 USC on Saturday at the Rose Bowl, there will be a lot at stake for each team. The Bruins (3-2) have a winning record for the first time in their three seasons under Coach Chip Kelly and another win against their crosstown rival would continue that upward trajectory. It would also be the team’s third consecutive victory at home. A loss would drop the Bruins back to .500, another milestone of sorts, that the program reached this season for the first time since 2017. The Vict...

USC vs. UCLA rivalry has seen great seasons spoiled – can Trojans avoid that fate?

When Frank Jordan’s 38-yard field goal went through the uprights with two seconds left to lift USC to victory 43 years ago over rival UCLA, the immediate aftermath was a bit of a blur. There was a dog pile on the field, and Jordan is pretty sure a coach broke his nose in the scrum. But in the days and weeks that followed, letters from the Seattle area began to pour into Jordan’s mailbox. His kick had knocked UCLA out of the Rose Bowl and given Washington a trip to the Granddaddy of Them All inst...

USC expects all players out of quarantine for UCLA game

Barring any last-minute surprises, USC expects to be back to full strength for Saturday’s rivalry game against UCLA. Assuming Thursday’s round of COVID-19 testing does not turn up any new positive tests, USC will get its last players out of isolation ahead of the crosstown matchup at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Rose Bowl, Trojans head coach Clay Helton said Thursday morning. USC (4-0) had four players test positive for COVID-19 the week of Thanksgiving, and an additional seven put into quarantine ...

UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson hoping for another big game vs. USC

Don’t think UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson is going to pour any fuel on the fire as the Bruins get set to take on crosstown rival USC at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Rose Bowl. He doesn’t need too. It’s UCLA vs. USC. That’s all you need to know. “It’s definitely one of those games that is the reason why you come to UCLA,” the third-year starter said during a Zoom conference this week. “You can feel it whether you are on social media or just walking around or whatever it may be.

Chip Kelly’s “process” is starting to come to fruition as UCLA has settled in on what he has been trying to implement since his arrival.

UCLA safety Quentin Lake confident he will make a difference against USC

There is an unwavering confidence when it comes to UCLA redshirt junior Quentin Lake, who watched helplessly from the sidelines last year as USC freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis torched the Bruins’ secondary with a 515-yard, four touchdown performance in a 52-35 Trojans victory at the Coliseum. It wasn’t anything new, as UCLA’s defense had been embarrassed most of the season. Lake, a safety and key cog in the Bruins’ secondary, had to sit and watch most of it as he missed eight games with a wri...
