08:20 AM ET 10.27 | Until now, the guy with the most famous name on the field has been playing the part of someone else. Jerry Rice Jr. gets to be himself this week. That's a big step forward. Rice has had many identities and worn many numbers the last two seasons as a member of UCLA football's scout team. The scout squad is made up of reserves -- most of whom have relatively little chance of playing in a game -- who impersonate the Bruins' next opponent during workouts. [This] week, Rice is Rice. The non-scholarship player, whose father is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is in the Bruins' game plan when they play California at the Rose Bowl on Saturday.

Nah. Don't think I am in the same age range. Am one of those guys who only needs a few hours sleep per night. A little quiet time before my day goes ape sheet.

Top o' the mornin' to ya ICE. The Left Coast speaks. So, just to be devil's advocate, who would you like to see replace Neuheisel at You See Ell Ayy? (Or not, since you're a Trojan fan).

Well for the sake of us, I hope Rick stays forever. That being said, I do think the job in westwood could be a plum job for the right guy. My guess is Bellotti probably takes over. Not sure one of the young guns (Petersen) would be right, since for him it would probably not be a landing spot. Either way, they should be able to land a darn good coach.

Next UCLA thread I want to see is " UCLA hires ________________ as the new head coach"
