08:19 AM ET 05.21 | USC grabbed most of the past week's recruiting headlines, thanks to the additions of two top running back prospects. [But] rival UCLA is amassing quite a class itself. The Bruins are going national, just like USC did over the past decade when it was a national-title contender nearly every season. So what has changed for the Bruins? Well, it's not like former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel didn't try to recruit nationally, but first-year coach Jim Mora has had a lot of early success since being hired Dec. 10, 2011. In the 2013 class, Mora and his staff have brought in recruits from Georgia and Texas -- players who easily could have played in the SEC or Big 12 -- but chose to head west to UCLA.

UCLA's going national because no one worth a darn in LA wants to go there!
You'll always be second-best in LA- get used to it.

Ol' Rick said UCLA would be competing with U$C, he just didn't realize he wouldn't be the coach then!

Mora's challenging Kiffin to a bare fisted brawl.

Not a problem. He stole a copy of GR's SEC cheaters handbook. And unlike Aggie, they can read.

U$C should be shaking in their boots, they have all the pressure on them, then watch UCLA give them a pounding, as well as the Ducks will too.

He could have stolen it, but he couldn't have read it.



All copies have "Mission Impossible" traits, like self-destructing when touched by a non-SEC-affiliated person.

Security is of critical importance to continued SEC domination.
