Neuheisel pleased with practice

UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel was much happier with his team's practice on Wednesday than he was of the effort the day before. There was a lot more energy and chatter going on something that has been absent of late. As usual Neuheisel met with the press to answer questions about his program.

Neuheisel: "I was pleased with the practice today. I think the guys had energy, have the right kind of energy and I think we go up there and play with great passion. I'm anxious to play. It should be a good game. It is two teams that are struggling to run the football, that are both going to try hard to see if they can get it done and it should be interesting how it plays out."

No Ben Olson today?

Neuheisel: "We wanted to see where he was yesterday and gave him a lot more reps, but I don't think that he's ready so we wanted to make sure that Chris Forcier got those reps today."

You don't think he's (Olson) ready?

Neuheisel: "Not this week…"

Is he totally out of the picture?

Neuheisel: "Not totally out, I mean he will go on the trip, but I wouldn't think that he would play."
