Kevin Prince , UCLA's quarterback, has a handle on what is expected of him: the world. "I'm adjusting to more criticism on a bigger stage, accepting the fact you can't please everybody," Prince said. "A big part of the game is mental, being able to move on and not worry about what people are saying." What UCLA fans are saying is that they hope Prince's second half last week was an evolution, not a hiccup. Prince threw for 323 yards in a 26-19 loss to Oregon State, 198 in the fourth quarter as he rallied the Bruins from a 16-point deficit to tie the score.

From a dreary field in Seattle to an eerie field in Eugene, the whispers have been the same. From first downs at the Coliseum to the last series in South Bend, the wondering has been incessant. Who is coaching these guys? While the source of the rips and tears in this strangely ragged USC football team can be debated, the overall appearance cannot. Pete Carroll's Trojans do not look like Pete Carroll's Trojans. They don't swarm, suffocate or scheme like them. They don't attack with the same intensity, defend with the same abandon, or behave with the same inspiration.

When it comes to attending different sports events, it couldn't have been a safer situation to go to the bathroom without fear of missing anything. After all, UCLA's offense was on the field. You drink as much coffee as it takes to stay awake these days while the Bruins are trying to find the end zone, and you just have to go. So here it is, fourth quarter, a lollygagging Oregon State just mailing it in with a 19-3 lead, UCLA not throwing a touchdown pass in more than 295 minutes -- and an entire season is only 720 minutes.

All was well on the UCLA quarterback front Tuesday, or so went the pitch. The Bruins, trying to end a four-game losing streak, will use two quarterbacks this weekend, Kevin Prince as the starter and Richard Brehaut in a limited role, probably in the first half. The idea is foreign to offensive coordinator Norm Chow's philosophy and had the appearance of Coach Rick Neuheisel expressing his will. "I think that's been overblown," Neuheisel said. "All I said was that Richard was going to get in a series or two in the game.

Stopped by to chat with the Heisman maker, Norm Chow , after listening to UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel give yet another hilarious but hot-air news conference. The Bruins have lost four in a row, their quarterbacks haven't thrown a touchdown pass in a month and for the first time in nearly 20 years, UCLA is in danger of not getting a bowl bid in two consecutive years. And on the back page of the Daily Bruin on Monday, the headline read: "Neuheisel's team falling apart." I know how much closer the kids on campus are to the UCLA football players, so I asked Neuheisel whether the Daily Bruin was on to something.

UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel had the opportunity to still any quarterback controversy, but he remained noncommittal during Sunday night's conference call. Would Kevin Prince go back in as the team's starter after the 27-13 loss to Arizona Saturday? "We will continue to look and evaluate our options as we go forward," Neuheisel said. Asked if that was a slight shift in direction, he said, "We're going to keep looking." The Bruins have lost four consecutive games and the offense has failed to score a touchdown in two of the last three games.

UCLA's woes on offense were focused on the Bruins' quarterbacks Saturday after a 27-13 loss to Arizona. The Bruins managed only 211 yards -- one week after rolling up 448 yards in a 45-26 loss to California. "We thought we were moving in the right direction with the plays we made against Cal," Coach Rick Neuheisel said. "But they weren't being made today. I don't know what the problem was, but it was a frustrating day for our offense." Neuheisel yanked quarterback Kevin Prince in favor of Kevin Craft , then yanked Craft for Richard Brehaut, who got one series near the end of the game.

A Twitter message sent by UCLA freshman Randall Carroll to a top high school recruit complained about Bruins offensive coordinator Norm Chow and referred to him with a racial epithet. The post, from the account of OCiAM, dated Oct. 22, referred to the Bruins' last three games before Saturday and read, "man oregon, stanford and cal should have been easy wins ,, but [expletive] thys [racial slur] norm chow dnt be trustin us ,, so it is what it is." Carroll directed the tweet to the attention of La Canada St. Francis High running back Dietrich Riley.

UCLA showed some signs of life on offense last week against California. The Bruins rolled up 418 total yards. Quarterback Kevin Prince passed for 311 yards. Tailback Johnathan Franklin had a 74-yard touchdown run on a bum left ankle. That's the glass half-full spin. There's also the glass is cracked and leaking all over the counter view of things. The Bruins had to settle for field goals three of the four times they advanced close to the end zone. Prince had a pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown.
