BUMPED - P
Here is a list from memory of the ucla QB injuries over the last decade. As you can see, they have only had 1 year with their starter playing in every game. Maybe this will deter Neuheisel in the future from going with an offense that exposes his QB to a higher chance of suffering a season ending injury. Prince only lasted 5 games this season. Poor kid never had a chance. I hope he gets a better O-Line and a pro-style offense next year for his sake.
ucla QB injuries
2002- Cory Paus- Shoulder in Cal game
2002- Drew Olson- Leg in Cal game
2003- Matt Moore- Colorado game leg injury I think. Moore was named starter. He gets 3 more starts and transfers after hearing Dorrell call Drew Olson “the future” on the headset.
2004- Drew Olson starts all 12 games. Finishes season by blowing out 2 ligaments in his knee. He is questionable for fall camp
2005- Drew Olson starts all games. bruins go 10-2. No QB injuries.
2006- Ben Olson is injured in his 5th start with a torn MCL. Pat Cowan finishes the season and has a huge win over a certain rival program.
2007- Ben Olson is injured yet again in his sixth start with another ligament tear in his knee. Pat Cowan gets hurts knee in the Washington game. McLeod Bethel-Thomspon gets some starts as a 3rd string QB until Cowan returns. Osaar Rasshan starts the Las Vegas Bowl and throws 1 pass in the whole first half that falls incomplete.
2008- Pat Cowan Blows out knee in camp. Ben Olson breaks his glass feet again in camp without any contact. Kevin Craft leads the bruins in 2008.
2009- Kevin Prince breaks his jaw in the 2nd game of the year. Craft takes over and gets yelled at for making too many mistakes. Prince and Brehaut share time for the rest of the season, with Prince getting the majority of the snaps.
2010- Kevin Prince takes a hit to the knee in the Texas game. Has season ending knee surgery a few weeks later.
We didn't run the shotgun the entire time under Chow
3 to 5 step drops from under center every time. We had the O-Line to handle it though. I don’t think the bruins have the ability to protect Prince. Its should be called the “Prince running for his life” offense.
Time to print up some
