Westwood Village, CA. A Spoof SOS - Spoof On Sports. After two consecutive 0-3 starts, which led to two consecutive 4-8 seasons, the UCLA Bruins have found a way to avoid a third consecutive 0-3 start against unheralded non-conference teams.
The Bruins have cancelled their pre-conference games with Mexico State, Hawaii and San Diego State.
Instead, the Bruins will now go 0-3 against three Pac-12 teams: Stanford, Arizona and Arizona State. That, at least, will not be as humiliating as losing to such minor league teams as San Diego State for the second year in a row.
More accurately, the Pac-12 conference cancelled all conference games for all conference members, trimming the season from the usual 12 games to 9 for each members. That means the Bruins can't finish the season with more than nine losses.
