The UCLA Bruins have to fight for recognition in a city where USC has dominated the headlines over the last decade. Much like the other teams on our list, the Bruins run a balanced offense and have all of Southern California as a fan base to conquer. It will be a challenge.
Playing in the Rose Bowl extends immediate prestige to your recruiting class pitches. Your visits with top high school athletes will have to instill a belief in these kids that they are the foundation to build the new dynasty.
With a long, athletic quarterback with some quality speed ratings at the helm for the next three seasons, it’s easy to see why this destination is so attractive. The 6’4’’ freshman quarterback has the potential to be something special. A quick-hitting west coast offense looks to be the offense of choice based on the Bruins spring game, so scoring shouldn’t be an issue for this squad, and so the focus should be on your defensive schemes.
Your dynasty begins with the historic stadium that can be a tremendous home field advantage. It ends with what you build to be left on the Rose Bowl grass.
