On stage ... UCLA

PASADENA, Calif. -- Some quick hits from media day.

  • Rick Neuheisel and free safety Rahim Moore. UCLA was picked eighth in the media poll and finished eighth in 2009.

  • Neuheisel on Pac-12 divisions: "I have a personal opinion for UCLA, but I understand there are more things than UCLA ... I'm just going to duck that question."

  • On Colorado joining Pac-10: "I think they will be a great player."

  • On N.Y. trip: "... taking the East Coast bias head-on ... I think it was a bold move ... brilliant."

  • Moore, on which passing attack is hardest to stop: "Arizona and Washington ... you can tell those guys put a lot of work in."

  • Neuheisel said he's been asked about USC's NCAA sanctions "100 times": "Is there a window of opportunity? Certainly." But he emphasized that UCLA needs to focus on itself, not USC.
