08:16 AM ET 09.17 | A day after winning his third game of the season, UCLA football coach Jim Mora denied reports that he benched three players Saturday for violating team policy. According to a report in the L.A. Times and on the Scout website BruinReportOnline.com, quarterback Richard Brehaut, wide receiver Ricky Marvray and defensive back Brandon Sermons were benched for the game against Houston. It was reported the players were benched because they were late for Sunday meetings last week. Mora took to Facebook to deny the report early Sunday morning. "This is 100 percent false information," Mora wrote on his Facebook page. "No players were suspended, all healthy players were suited up and ready to play if called upon."

Lost 4 out of the last 5 games. Mora cut out the BS traditions that UCLA had.

Neuheisal actually, probably thinks that. Sad as it is. But if Rick had come back, UCLA would be 1-2 or 0-3, and that's the truth. Mora is doing great, and should lead UCLA to an undefeated season until he leaves for the NFL just before Thanksgiving. But if I were a UCLA person (and I use that term loosely), I'd be happy to have just gotten where I am already, 3-0. Everything else from here on out is just gravy.

If you are lucky... He will go coach that pro franchise in LA... the Trogans

The Los Angeles Trojans already have the best coach in football today.

How many losses does Bellichick have? How many losses does Lovie Smith have? No great team has ever gone through a season without a loss, except maybe the Miami Dolphins, but personally I believe they were lucky there weren't any talented NFL teams that season they did it.
