Great win by the Beacats. Was at a bar and couldn't fully watch the game. Agree they dont win that game with Moore. Hopefully we've seen the last of him leading this team. He just simply hasn't been good. Defense looked good from what I could tell. Again kind of had to watch at the game. I DVRed the game so I might go back and try to watch it more, but that's kind of hard to do when you know the outcome already. Great win for the program and way to start the season. Interested to see how they bounce back vs. Miami. It's easy to get up to play a UCLA and in the Rose Bowl. Hope we see similar results. I think we will.

I agree with every 4th down decision on that last drive. The first one, with 3 minutes on the clock and UCLA having all three time outs, I like being aggressive and trying to keep drive going rather than going up 5, where a TD still beats you. The 1st 4th and goal was a tough distance and with less than 2 minutes and UCLA having burned all three of their timeouts going up 5 is a bigger deal making them have to go the whole distance. After the penalty, the distance not only cuts in half, but it's kind of a karmic thing that a defense won't hold after giving you another chance on a stupid penalty. At that point I was glad they went for it. Obviously it all worked in our favor but even if they dont punch it in, I'm not questioning Fickell like I have to question Kelly for his decision to go for it where they did... that was plain dumb
