A Reminder to Drink Responsibly

UCLA appears to be on its best behavior as it enters Friday's Sun Bowl. But a year ago, that wasn't the case. According to a story in the El Paso Times, two Bruin starters were sent home from last year's Las Vegas Bowl after showing up for a team meeting drunk and then throwing up in front of coaches and teammates. The story never identified the players, but an Internet search provided the names of Benjamin Lorier and Eyoseph Efseaff. Bruin tight end Marcedes Lewis provided more details into the shenanigans: "In past years, like when we went to Vegas last year, dudes were drunk and they had alcohol leaking out of their pores at practice. This year hasn't been anything like that for us." Coach Karl Dorrell added, "Spirits are good." We presume he was talking about the team, not the nightlife in Juarez.
