Trying to Get a Leg Up on the Competition

There is always something something to divert one's attention during a UCLA game, making it rather easy to turn away from the action when the Bruin defense was on the field in 2005. UCLA gave up 232.8 rushing yards and 34.2 points a game, turning in a performance that ranked near the bottom nationally for the second season in a row. Something had to give, and coach Karl Dorrell fired defensive coordinator Larry Kerr on Tuesday. Kerr was the first assistant hired by Dorrell when he became coach in 2003, and he became the second assistant to leave the staff in two days. Eric Bieniemy, a crackerjack recruiter, accepted a job Monday with the Minnesota Vikings.
