‘Streaker’, brawl between UCLA, Arizona highlight ugly half of football

we're going streaking

Congratulations, Pac-12. Your Thursday night prime time game already featured two teams with a combined record of 4-8. One team, Arizona, had already fired their coach; the other, UCLA, looks to be on the verge of following suit with their own.

But the Bruins have not played inspired football so far (or during the season) with their coach’s job likely on the line. Arizona leads the Bruins 42-7 at the half, have scored on every offensive possession and amassed over 400 yards of offense.

But the horrid football displayed by UCLA was only topped by a bizarre end to the second quarter that featured a streaking fan (sort of) and a bench-clearing brawl. Details of the streaker — really for a lack of a better word — are fuzzy, but it appears a fan ran on to the field dressed as a referee, distracting the actual game officials for a few seconds.

During that time, players from the two sides began pushing one another, completely independent of the former incident, and a fight broke out between the two sides before anyone had a chance to take any preventative measures. Two players — Taylor Embree of UCLA and Shaquille Richardson of Arizona — were ejected.

It was an ugly scene, and that’s not even including the streaker.

Not as ugly as what will undoubtedly be the atmosphere in the UCLA locker room. The Bruins have completely quit on Rick Neuheisel.

    Well Neuheisel tried is best. I can’t imagine they’ll keep him around long after this embarrassing loss. I was pulling for him to get it turned around.

    Slick Rick should be “outta here” after this game.

    Neuheisal should be glad! Getting away from that loser program will be the best thing that ever happened to him. Fight on!

    I don’t care how ugly it was. My Wildcats finally got a win! I can get down off the ledge now.

    Your right phelbin, it didn’t matter who it was. It was a great win for the Wildcats tonight, just to bad it might be slick ricks last game at the helm. He needs to go now, his team has quit on him. Fight On!

    As a long time supporter of the PAC 8/10/12, I wanted to crawl under the table tonight.

    Fortunately we’ll have some great TV games Saturday to make up for this one. Stay tuned.

    Well, darn!! I don’t normally watch the Pac 12. But it was all love and kisses on Project Runway, barely a cat scratch. For entertainment value, looks like I picked the wrong game last night 😉
