Bob Palcic , the crusty, always competitive UCLA offensive line coach, put his face close to the helmet of offensive tackle Connor Bradford on Tuesday and let loose an intense, loud verbal barrage during a spring practice blocking drill. "I'd rather him be yelling at me than saying nothing at all," Bradford said. Bradford, a 6-foot-5, 274-pound redshirt junior, is one of UCLA's spring success stories. He hasn't gotten into a game over the last two seasons and was listed on the roster last fall at 249 pounds.

UCLA left tackle Micah Kia appears to be moving toward starting against Tennessee on Monday night, less than two weeks after breaking his left hand. Kia, one of two Bruins' linemen with game experience, went through a second day of workouts, using a smaller cast on the hand that allowed it more freedom. "If the coaches need me, I'm ready," Kia said. "It feels good." Kia's cast had restricted the use of his fingers. It was cut to cover only the lower part of his hand. "I can use my hand blocking," Kia said.

By Chris Foster UCLA tackle Micah Kia is optimistic about the Bruins' offensive line. "We finally have … we finally have … that X-factor," he said. Just what that is, well.... "I can't tell you because I don't know what it is," Kia said. "But we got it. " Maybe that intangible is simple belief. Even though the Bruins must reshape the line for a third consecutive summer, there is a feeling it's not spit and bailing wire that will hold things together.

The thin powder blue line had more moments of concern Tuesday. Defensive end Korey Bosworth was on the sideline, testing a left ankle injury. Defensive tackle Brigham Harwell was having an injured left arm examined. Guard Scott Glicksberg was in and out of drills because of a sore shoulder. The hopes UCLA harbor for success this season required one absolute ingredient: health. The Bruins have already lost tight end Logan Paulsen to a broken foot. Wide receiver Marcus Everett is still rehabilitating a dislocated toe. And tailback Kahlil Bell is looking more and more doubtful for this week because of a high ankle sprain.

UCLA offensive line coach Bob Palcic kept hammering home the point Monday night. "I told my guys, 'Keep pounding the rock, keep pounding the rock, keep pounding the rock and eventually that rock is going to crack,' " Palcic said. "And it did." For weeks, the Bruins' offensive line had been hearing that they weren't experienced enough or deep enough or good enough. Yet, after a 27-24 victory over Tennessee, they weren't ready to feel completely vindicated. "We played well enough to win," center Micah Reed said.

UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel laughed, tossing out an isn't-that-an-understatement chuckle when asked whether losing yet another offensive line was overly concerning. "We're past overly concerned," Neuheisel said. "On the Ouija Board of concern, we passed 'overly.' " So ended another day of musical offensive line for the Bruins. Junior tackle Micah Kia was out, having suffered a broken left hand during Tuesday's practice. Freshman lineman Jeff Baca was scheduled to have an MRI exam today on his left knee today.

Offense As a preseason primer, rent "The Money Pit" with Tim Hanks and Shelley Long. Watch it. Suffer through it. UCLA fans, you're ready for the season. The Bruins' offense could be an equally unpleasant remake about Coach Rick Neuheisel rebuilding his dream house. The Bruins have good people in place on offense, but the best and the brightest will be wearing headsets, not helmets -- offensive coordinator Norm Chow and line coach Bob Palcic. Everything comes down to the offensive line.

A week from now, Rick Neuheisel will lead UCLA's football team onto the Rose Bowl field, an emotional moment for the former Bruins quarterback. "It will be a thrill," Neuheisel said. "Some people who were with me through thick and thin will be with me coming out. This is kind of a thank-you, a tip of my cap, to them for being great friends. It will be very exciting. Then I'll go to work." Ah, the work. That, for this season, won't be demanding, at least by those outside looking in. Expectations for the Bruins boil down to this: The bar is set, now everybody limbo.
