While You Weren't Watching

It's a busy time of year. The football team is still playing. Basketball is starting up. There's the NBA, NFL, MLB just wrapped up. So you may not have noticed what UCLA's former opponents have been doing since we played them. Here's a quick rundown of who's done what in the blue-and-gold wake.

We all know that Notre Dame stinks. They've been playing awful and just getting it handed to them each and every week. The national media has documented their struggles well and they've lost every one of their games, well except for one. Those loses weren't even close either. USC demolished them 38-0. Boston College whooped on 'em. But their worst lost came this last weekend when the Domers lost to Navy for the first time in 30+ years. By definition Navy has no NFL bound players because they're all signed up to go into the Navy after they graduate!!! This will probably end as one of the worst seasons in the 100+ years of Notre Dame football. How did we lose to these guys???

On a happier note BYU has done very well since we beat them back in week two. They lost a squeaker to Tulsa the very next Saturday but have since won 5 in a row and are atop the Mountain West standings. Utah has also been playing very well. They got back all of their starters (who were out with injury when they played us) and have also won 5 consecutive games. It looks like the Cougars and the Utes might have a big show down near the end of the season for the MWC championship.
