My Big Game Prediction

My last post was a bit of a downer–let’s return to irreverence. Here’s what this game will look like (and I’m not just talking about the slapfests between bourgeois Desi fans in the stadium): [youtube NZZ4pw2gTRI] Now imagine this running on repeat for three hours and you’re set. Of course, Cal will be the angry, […]

Flying Behind the Mullet

I remember being a freshman in 2004, watching Aaron Rodgers weave his way around the pocket and beyond. I was way too pampered to get that season as my first as a Cal fan, which is probably why I sometimes act like a brat when I talk about their downfall this year. You gotta take […]

Action Jackson Preview, Week 14

Our Big Game is coming up, but it’s sadly one of the more meaningless ones to watch this week. All times PST. Thursday Rutgers at Louisville, 4:30 PM, ESPN. Brian Brohm’s going to have to earn money the hard way. Saturday MAC Championship: Central Michigan vs. Ohio (Detroit), 8 AM, ESPN2. Where only gamblers care. […]

Let’s Hire the O!

Bill Doba is gone from Wazzu after a 5-7 season. I’m a little surprised, considering how close Wazzu came to beating ASU and Cal, along with their throttling of UCLA, but this has been speculated for months. All reports indicate that Mike Price and Cal’s defensive coordinator Bob Gregory will be fighting for the job, […]

Cal Fans Around the World, Get Your Signs Ready

Eh, fuck it. I’m embracing this rivalry, right now. The pathetic Redfurds over on the other side of the Bay have resorted to the most bizarre tactic to motivate their Cardinal: elitist internationalism. Ooh, look, you’re in Paris! It’s appropriate, since your records in battle are eerily similar. In other words, Stanford fans go to […]

The Big Game Line, Cal (-13.0) at Stanford

I had bad feelings about the Washington line going into that game, and I was annoyingly proven right again. [TABLE=4] Yes, Cal has failed to cover the spread since the Oregon win, with much delight to sports bookies everywhere. The square gamblers out there must be blind and deaf, because they’re still high on Cal […]

The Very Small Game (Cal-Stanford Soliloquy)

Look, I know what week it is. I know who we’re playing. I know it’s a big deal to every big Cal fan out there, especially those who were graced with the awesomeness of Holmoe. Retain the Axe and all that. Good good good. I couldn’t care less. That isn’t because I’m done following the […]

Marshawn Lynch on Yardbarker

Hopefully he’ll write up more than his old QB Nate Longshore. [Yardbarker]

My Poll of 25…and BCS Projections, Week 14

Figures that the moment I put Kansas and LSU in the title game, both of them lose. What a great season it’s been for a college football fan. Well, at least for one who doesn’t gamble like a square (that’s actually every season, but you know what I mean). Submit your Top 25 (or 20 […]
