Blessing in Disguise

You know, looking back at our season, it may have been a good thing that we finished 4-8. How so? Well, it gave our program two very important things. The first was an extra month that the coaches could focus on recruiting because they didn't have to spend any time on Bowl preparation. The second was the way it fired up Norm Chow. Chow wasn't required to do much recruiting as a part of his contract, but he went out there and hit the pavement hard. Both of those things lead to a stellar recruiting class. I doubt UCLA would have recruited as well if we had finished with a 6 or 7 win season. Sometimes you need to hit bottom before you can get back up to the top.
