If you heard the hysterical sounds of laughter coming from the Los Feliz, Little Armenia, Thai Town and East Hollywood section of Los Angeles Saturday night, it was me.

First of all the UCLA Bruins lost to Notre Dame? The fact that Ben Olson got injured in the first quarter and they brought out walk-on quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson to replace him shows something fundamentally wrong with this Bruin program. When Patrick Cowan went down with a knee injury a couple of weeks back, why not revoke the red-shirt status of freshman Chris Forcier? At least Forcier was recruited.

So now the Bruins will have to live with the fact that they were beaten by an 0-5 team, a team whose only other wins will probably come from the service academies. And that’s only if they’re lucky. Of course this question will be raised: will Karl Dorrell have a job after the end of the season? The readers digest answer to that is a resounding no.

Now for the other ass whooping: Stanford Cardinal beating 41-point favorites USC Trojans 24-23. Oh that one sent me to hysterics. Although I didn’t see them losing like this, it just seemed like the Trojans were begging for a loss especially after escaping Husky Stadium with a W last weekend. This is probably the most undisciplined team I’ve seen from the Trojans in years, so I hope Pete Carroll does something before having to go to Cal and Oregon. This could get even uglier.
