Five sacks. 3.0 yards per carry. A 4.9 overall yards-per-play mark, one that would have ranked dead last in the Pac-12 if maintained over the entire 2013 season. And most damningly, a single offensive touchdown.

It was a day to forget for the UCLA offense at Virginia last Saturday, nowhere moreso than on the frequently beaten Bruin offensive line. And per the Orange County Register, offensive line coach Adrian Klemm didn't pull any punches when discussing it Tuesday:

As the old saw goes: tell us how you really feel, coach Klemm! Also via the Register, here's video of Klemm's comments, in which he says things started "snowballing" up front:

The good news: the Bruins return home for something like a breather vs. Memphis before heading to Arlington to face a wounded Texas team in Week 3, and then they get a bye. So there's still plenty of time to work out the kinks before the Pac-12 schedule, and the return of veteran center Jake Brendel from a sprained knee would be a sizable help as well.

So there's reason to think the hiccups on display vs. the Cavaliers might be fixed before they can ruin the Bruins' season. Then again, Virginia's defensive line gave up the third-worst yards-per-carry average in the ACC last season, and Oregon, Washington, USC and Stanford all remain on the schedule -- if those hiccups aren't fixed, trouble awaits.
