We Won? We Won!

I was in an airport in Buffalo, saw Air Force 21 Cal 7 flash on the ESPNNews TV, and thought “Oh, no, not again”. I just decided it was best to memory wipe this season and snore next to some fat lady in Crocs for the flight, hoping to meditate the suffering away. Then after […]

Armed Forces Bowl Open Thread

I have been and will be traveling during the bowl week, and will most likely not see Cal’s bowl game because of these travels. If you guys have any comments on the game, I will try to approve them as soon as I can. Enjoy the game and Happy Holidays!

You know what’s fun? Liveblogs, that’s what! Don’t really have much else to do this Saturday night. And I love me some bowl action. 5:15–UCLA is one of the fiercest, fastest defenses in the Pac-10…but it’s bowl season, so what do you expect? Miss one tackle, miss another, miss another on a kick return. 5:17–FUMMMBLE! […]

A Merry Christmas for Cal Football!

Don’t feel too bad for the players. Take a look at the lovely gift package the Armed Forces Bowl extracted for Air Force and Cal players: Slingbox SOLO, Timely Watch Co. watch, Armor Gear rolling duffle bag, and (haha) ball. I guess my question about the ball is what type of ball? Plastic? Rubber? Football? […]

Bowling Time

I have no concrete plans for how much I’ll be covering bowls this year. Hell, I might not even watch Cal’s bowl game–not because I don’t want to, but I’ll probably be on a plane for the majority of the game.  I’m going to be traveling this holiday season to see old friends, and I […]

Tha1 Be Gone?

I don’t think many of us expected otherwise. Cal also was right there. Logistically, it made perfect sense. Close to home, close to his mother, who raised him and daughter Jessica alone. Though committed to Florida, Moore still took a recruiting visit to the Berkeley campus over the weekend. Friday’s festivities included dinner at Tedford’s […]

Say Goodnight to Tedford-to-Michigan

Now all we have to worry about is the 49ers job. West Virginia’s Rich Rodriguez, who met with U-M president Mary Sue Coleman and athletic director Bill Martin on Friday in Toledo, has accepted the Michigan coaching job, replacing retiring coach Lloyd Carr, the Free Press learned this afternoon. An official announcement is expected at […]

Best of BN, 2007

I’m feeling terrible AGAIN. I’ve waken up the last five days and had no desire to write at all. So while I recover, I’ll be sporadic in posting habits until recovery comes, which might be tomorrow, two weeks, never. So for now, a la Golden Blogs, classic posts for you to read! (And by classic, […]

Pac-10 Coaching Carousel: Epilogue

Well, so much for letting Gregory go the easy way. Washington State University has selected Eastern Washington head coach Paul Wulff as WSU’s new head football coach, a source close to the selection process told The Associated Press late Monday. The WSU source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make […]

Pac-10 Coaching Carousel, Part II

So after covering the scenarios yesterday of those coaches who have passed on from the Pac-10 rites, I’ll continue looking through those coaches who will be under the eye for the next twelve months…and could very well be looking for new work in 2009. (The following images were made by a Bruins fan. Hence why […]
