    Everyone,

    I know everyone wants to talk about the new demo, and what is going to happen with the new game, but we still are trying to finish this last season. And if anyone has been following the Losers' Lounge this morning the coach for the Bruins and myself have been getting into a war of words about tonight's Week 9 showdown. I have stated that UCLA is going to kill the Beavers, Coach Recchem does not like this talk, and doesn't believe it so lets break it down

    OSU Offense​
    QB Joel Harrington OVR 71, 78 THP, 78 THA
    RB Justin Davis OVR 85, 95 SPD, 89 ACC R
    WR Lorenzo Beck OVR 80, 89 SPD & ACC, 84 CTH
    WR Paul Waters OVR 79 89 SPD, 99 ACC, 66 CTH
    WR Lance Dotson OVR 74, 96 SPD, 82 ACC, 64 CTH
    OL Average-73.2

    UCLA Offense
    QB Alex McCray OVR 99, 88 THP, 97 THA
    RB Michael Childress, OVR 87, 87 SPD, 89 ACC
    WR Jon Allen OVR 98, 98 SPD, 88 ACC, 93 CTH
    WR Myron Downs OVR 88, 88 SPD, 88 ACC, 85 CTH
    WR Randy Bennet OVR 85, 88 SPD, 96 ACC
    O-Line Average-83.6

    OSU Defense
    DL Average 79.75, DT Mike Berry OVR 84
    L'backers Average 79.33, ROLB John Fletcher OVR 84
    CBs-Neal Johnson OVR 84, Manny Warren OVR 72
    Safeties Mark Williams OVR 79, Jason Broussard OVR 69

    UCLA Defense
    DL Average-86, DT Clint Moore 90
    Linebackers Average 83.33, ROLB Stanford Davis OVR 90
    CB-Mike Slater OVR 90, Lionel Butler OVR 79
    Safeties-Xavier Harris OVR 83, Kirk Goodman 84

    When I look at this, UCLA is clearly better at QB, WR, and on the Offensive line. At running back it is a toss up because Davis is faster, but Childress has the better overall rating. When you look at the defense UCLA has all the check marks. The Bruins has a significant advantage when you look at their front seven when compared to the Beavers' offensive line. The Bruins' only weak spot is at corner back, after Slater there is a significant drop off. For the Beavers, they have fast receivers and will need to take advantage of UCLA's weak spot. The question for everyone, what will the result be?

    I picked myself to win by less than 7 like every freaking time we play...all this talk about blow outs is ridiculous! When was the last time I have blown out any user? Never, thats when. So, Forest my friend, it will be close, and you may very well win but it will not be a blow out by either team!

    The only way I win this game is by throwing for about 400-500 yards like I did last time.

    Well you have recruited well at every other position except corner back. You have one stud, but the rest are not much better than anything I have. In addition all my receivers are fast, the year I signed Downs, I also signed Beck, Waters (originally an HB converted to receiver because he wasn't seeing any PT with Davis), Dotson, Jacob Bryant (95 SPD, 84 ACC), and AJ Huggins (83 SPD, 98 ACC).
