The part about Dorrell I agree. Even then, UCLA should have ran the ball at Notre Dame the whole game. There was no reason to bother throwing as ND gives up over 200 yds/game on the ground. When you put a new QB in, you run so you make the QB more comfortable. It's not Dorrell's fault the team had over 10 penalties, but he should have done more and better prepared his backup QB.
