Things That Make You Go Hmm…

The UCLA Bruins are playing strong, with a 6-0 record for this season. Coach Chip Kelly seems to have the team going in the right direction, so why is their game attendance so low? Only 42,000 fans showed up at the Rose Bowl for the game against Utah last week. Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, a possible candidate for the Heisman, and running back Zach Charbonnet have both been making outstanding plays to overcome some strong opponents on the field, helping the Bruins to attain those remarkable six wins. What else needs to be done to bring more hometown fans to the games?

Caleb Williams, the USC quarterback from the transfer portal, is having a great year, and the Trojans are undefeated so far. He’s quick and has a lot of great receivers to work with, so what does the rest of the season have in store for him?

Alabama senator and retired college football coach Tommy Tuberville is at the center of controversy over some remarks recently made at a Nevada political rally that were considered to be racist. Are those comments reflective of his time as a coach? Were they taken out of context?

LA Chargers coach Brandon Staley is making some questionable calls when the game is on the line. He has proven himself as a capable defensive coordinator, but is he too young and unseasoned to be a head coach?

The Dodgers had a problematic Game 2 on Wednesday night against the San Diego Padres. They’re a talented team, so why is Dave Roberts micromanaging and not letting the power players perform? What is the status of the bullpen? USA Today has published their National League MVP Top 3 List, consisting of Paul Goldschmidt (Cardinals), Manny Machado (Padres), and Nolan Arenado (Cardinals). What about Mookie Betts or Freddie Freeman, who have both had an outstanding year? Is there an East Coast bias in sports, where West Coast players don’t get the recognition they deserve?
