08:26 AM ET 11.23 | Ranking last in the Pac-10 in total offense and passing offense while ranking ninth in scoring offense isn't helping matters. UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel on Monday repeatedly declined to say that Bruins high-profile offensive coordinator Norm Chow would be retained for the 2011 season. Neuheisel said Chow, 64, would be evaluated along with the rest of the coaching staff after the season. UCLA (4-6 overall, 2-5) needs to beat both Arizona State on Friday and USC on Dec. 4 to become bowl eligible. Asked if he could envision a situation where Chow would not be back at UCLA next season, Neuheisel said, "I don't want to talk about who will be or who won't be on the staff next year."

Neuheisel being Neuheisel... I don't know much about UCLA's staff this year but I do know Norm Chow is one of the most respected OC's in the country and has been for many years. Was Chow responsible for the pistol or Neuheisel? The Pistol worked great for them against Texas, but it appears everything works against the Longhorns this year. But the pistol just doesn't seem Chow like to me?

Changing the subject just a little here because I saw something about UCLA this morning in USA Today. UCLA, Washington, USC and Notre Dame are the only FBS (D-1) schools that have never scheduled a game with an FCS (D-2) opponent. Just thought that was interesting.

Better headline: "Hot Chow placed on Neuheisel's Seat"

Chow has been known as an offensive guru for years...

... thought he and Neuheisel would be a great combination in the state of California.

I am not an official source and have not done a crapload of research on the issue, but I have said for at least a decade now that the PAC 10 consistently schedules the toughest occ of any BCS Conference. I believe Ohio State used to be in this category too, until Tressell threw a bone to his old school Youngstown State 2 yrs ago. I do not think Ohio State has ever played a D-2 until that game and it was a favor.

I was just shocked it was only four schools. I thought it was rare instead of the norm.
