|Don't underestimate Rick Neuheisel and the Bruins this season.|
"Fair isn't part of this," Neuheisel said. "I'm never worried about fair. As I like to tell football players, fair is where they give a blue ribbon to the pig. That's the fair. This is about doing what has to be done for the sake of UCLA football. That's why if the powers that be determine that there is a better coach for UCLA football, then that's their decision."
"There isn't," he continued. "I'm telling you right now, there isn't. But if that's the decision of the course they want to take, then they can do that."
And to have that looming over his head this season doesn't seem to bother Neuheisel as much as fans and the media might think. In fact, Neuheisel kind of likes being backed up against the wall. He draws upon his playing career at UCLA for inspiration.
"I'd see him at the hospital with his cap down so people wouldn't know who he was," Williams said of Neuheisel.
"He wept there. He loved Curtis. He cared about that kid. There were times I'd show up early in the morning or late at night and no one else would be around, but he'd be there."
