Like Michigan, the Bruins have
had a rocky beginning to their sea-
son. Decimated by graduation, hav-
ing lost top players such as All-
American quarterback Troy Aikman,
cornerback Darryl Henley, and out-
side linebacker Carnell Lake, the
Bruins dropped their season opener
to Tennessee, 24-6.
Last weekend, UCLA squeaked
by San Diego State, showing signs
of a team in the midst of a turbulent
flux. In other words, the Bruins,
who sport a .762 (79-23-5) winning
percentage in the 80s, are not play-
ing up to the level of play that coach
Terry Donahue has come to expect.
"We're not a good football team
for many reasons," Donahue said.

LOS ANGELES- It's strange, but somehow this in
years Michigan-UCLA clash lacks the pizzazz, the glitz, t
the hoopla that one would imagine. The 0-1 Wolverines g
travel west with a shaky offensive line, depleted
backfield and a redshirt frosh at quarterback.
UCLA starts an inexperienced field general as well. i
But the Bruins' 1-1 start can be attributed to a weak t
defense that has given up 24 points to Tennessee and 25 t
to San Diego State. The lackluster showings have Bruin r
coach Terry Donahue saying publicly that his teamm
needs to play harder if they are to compete this season.
Donahue is not immune to criticism himself. UCLA cl
supporters have charged the 13-year head coach with 9
being too conservative on offense. Many fans feel he did de
not use former Bruin quarterback Tr6y Aikman to his b
fullest. His detractors also feel that UCLA's offensive
schemes are behind the rest of the football world.
Haven't we heard that criticism about some other n
football coach? M
Ever since the summer suspensions of the five
UCLA football players, the powder blue football
uniforms have not shone as they once did. The Bruins bt
are suffering. They always have to compete for attention de
