UCLA More Concerned With Tragedy Heading Into Nebraska Game
It seems like the past few years have seen way too many tragedies in college football. Of course, one is too many, but there have been more than anyone could have thought possible. Unfortunately, another one was added to the list earlier this week when UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale was struck and killed by a vehicle while walking near his home in San Clemente, California.
They say bad things happen to good people and that was definitely the case with Pasquale, who made the Bruins’ roster the hard way…as a walk-on. Naturally, his teammates are heartbroken and bewildered, just like anyone would be at a time like this. Regardless, there’s a Week 3 game to be played this Saturday, which is a good and bad thing, depending on your point of view.
For Oklahoma State in 2011 and Georgia in 2012, it was a bad thing as the players weren’t in any shape to play football games and they suffered humiliating losses because of it. Now some players need to play after tragedy — there’s no right or wrong answer; it just depends on the person and the team.
No matter what happens when the Bruins hit the road to take on Nebraska, the thoughts and prayers of the entire football world will be with them, including those of the Cornhuskers faithful. There are things in life that are bigger than football and this is one of them. The thoughts and prayers of the Rant Sports family go out to Plasquale’s friends and loved ones. Go Bruins.
