UCLA isn't accustomed to getting players during training camp. Watching them limp off to the training room is the usual drill. But Tuesday the Bruins received a boost at two positions where depth is a question, picking up cornerback Jamie Graham and guard Albert Cid . Graham, who played three seasons at Vanderbilt, was accepted into UCLA's graduate school. Cid, a transfer from Citrus College, was admitted into the school as an undergraduate. Both are immediately eligible.

Offensive lineman Stanley Hasiak has returned to practice with a renewed sense of purpose and calm. A rocky season left the freshman unhappy and feeling somewhat lost, so two weeks ago Hasiak went home to Kapolei, Hawaii. And a few days later, he was back on the mainland, ready to resume his college career. "Going home helped give me a peace of mind," Hasiak said. "My thoughts were really clouded. I was thinking very negatively and I wasn't sure what to do." Stanley Hasiak Sr. helped correct his son's vision, with further support from Hasiak's uncles.

It appears that UCLA will have quarterback Kevin Prince available for Saturday's game at Kansas State. Now the Bruins must see about their most effective offensive player from last season. Senior kicker Kai Forbath , battling a leg injury, had a tee time set for Wednesday, but had to take a mulligan. Forbath, the 2009 Lou Groza Trophy winner, has kicked little the last two weeks. "I warmed up [Wednesday] and it felt good running around," Forbath said. "But I took a few swings and felt it a little bit. We didn't want to risk it. " Forbath, who passed on entering the NFL draft last winter, led the team with 108 points.

A shift in UCLA's philosophy on offense, with the Bruins testing a no-huddle, quick-read attack this spring, has its roots in Oregon. The Ducks' deception-heavy offensive scheme has made them one of the top rushing teams in the nation. That success led the Bruins' coaching staff to work on an offense patterned in part after Nevada's "pistol," which is similar to Oregon's scheme. "When we look at statistics and see who the best running teams are, it's not hard thing to figure out that the quarterback is involved," UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel said.

UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel seemed in a spinning mood after Thursday's practice, invoking the image of "Rocky" for his team. It had been that kind of day. Senior guard Micah Kia was lost for the season, after an MRI exam revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Center Kai Maiava , meanwhile, was a spectator, sitting out contact drills, said to be precautionary because of a sore shoulder. On the other side of the ball, Jerzy Siewierski , a starting defensive tackle, was missing because of a back injury.

There was actually offense in the UCLA offense Friday, the first day the team was in full pads. On the fourth play of the first 11-on-11 scrimmage, the offensive line opened up a hole that you could drive a truck through and tailback Derrick Coleman blew through it on his way to a long touchdown run. This was just one day, and defensive tackle Brian Price said, "We'll come out tomorrow with a vengeance." But Friday the offensive line did what it could not do a year ago -- open holes and pass-protect.

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.

UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter is experiencing freedom on the football field for the first time in two weeks. Carter will play without a brace on his left knee against Temple in the EagleBank Bowl on Tuesday. He sprained a ligament against Oregon on Oct. 10 and, although he did not sit out a game, the injury slowed him considerably, especially with the bulky brace. "I feel healthy for the first time in a while," said Carter, who will play his final game for UCLA. "I've had that brace for seven or eight weeks.

An edge that UCLA appears to have over USC is on special teams. The Bruins have the top field-goal kicker in the nation ( Kai Forbath ) and the nation's ninth-ranked punter ( Jeff Locke ). They also excel in the ability to change momentum with blocked kicks. The special teams, under coach Frank Gansz Jr . , have blocked five kicks this season, three field goals and two punts, with two resulting in points. A blocked field goal by defensive tackle Jerzy Siewierski was returned for a touchdown by Alterraun Verner against San Diego State.
