Cal Sports Weekend Links

As March Madness rages, in between commercial breaks and CBS lunges, I thought you might be interested in some other Cal material.

Remember when I created those primitive Pac-10 recruiting maps (here they are again)? Well, someone much better than me created something far more visually pleasing. Below are the 2008 HS and JUCO and upcoming 2009 recruiting battle.

Cal won their first NIT game. It’s hard to wonder why no one gives a crap…except for the noble OskiTalk. God bless him.

Rod Benson shares his hilarious thoughts on Ben Braun. National championship!

Grey Bear reports that there should be a decision within ninety days by Judge Miller. Methinks this should be good news, but at the moment all I want is for this to end.

Nyan Boateng gets a nice feature from ESPN because he has a lot to prove. He definitely looks like he has the size and the strength to fill in as a big receiver for Cal, but will it actually happen?

Aaron Rodgers interviewed by Dan Patrick. Wait for the end and a none-too-subtle jab at UCLA.

Aaron Rodgers racing sleddogs. Looks like we have a real winter man for Green Bay. reports that Josh Nunes, an ESPN-150 top recruit for 2009, has been granted an offer from Cal. Considering Nunes also wants to pursue an engineering career, I have to say the Golden Bears stand a pretty good chance of getting him. This would be great for the QB competition in the next few years, with Riley, Nunes and Mansion having to challenge one another for the starting spot.

And for those who want a little Cal football history, check out this fine feature from the 70s about Joe Roth by Keith Jackson. I don’t know anything about Roth, but from all accounts he was one of the greatest players Cal ever had, and could have gone on to a successful NFL career. Very nice tribute from a retro Keith.
