[ELITE EIGHT: #8 UCLA] Jorge Salcedo was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year after leading UCLA to its third conference title in four years, but all five Bruins who made the all-conference first team are gone. A crisis in Westwood? That's unlikely as Salcedo has plenty of replacements ready to step in and play key roles.

RETURNEES. Salcedo is counting on senior Ryan Hollingshead, a second-team all-conference pick, to lead the Bruin midfield, which lost Kelyn Rowe and Andy Rose, who have both been starting regularly in MLS. Other returning starters include Matt Wiet, Patrick Matchett and Joe Sofia and Fernando Monge. Spaniard Victor Munoz (eight assists in 2011) and former U.S. U-17 Victor Chavez (2010 Pac-12 leading goal scorer) will look to play increased roles in 2012. Earl Edwards, who started three games for the USA at the 2009 Under-17 World Cup, will finally get a chance to take over in goal as All-American Brian Rowe has graduated.

NEWCOMERS. Javan Torre and Grady Howe are two highly players in the Los Angeles Galaxy academy program, while Holden Fender, who was recruited out of Georgia's Concorde Fire, represented the USA at the 2010 Milk Cup. German midfielder Leo Stolz arrives at UCLA after spending one season at George Mason.
