Cal is Michigan is Cal

I don’t think Cal fans ever have to worry about Tedford leaving, regardless of the Monday Morning QB chatter. As far as I can tell, this might as well already be the Ann Arbor of the West. Plenty of hippie chatter, good public education, inferiority complex to football factory schools, unseasonably bizarro weather, etc. etc. […]

Can He Still Ghost Ride?

In the grand tradition of smooth public relations, Marshawn Lynch’s vehicular saga concludes on a Friday afternoon. Marshawn has issued a public statement, pleaded guilty to “failing to use due care towards a pedestrian,” and received a whopping $150 fine. The only punishment of any consequence is that Marshawn has to surrender his brand new […]

Profiles in Courage: Meet the Berkeley Treesitters

When there were about forty of them, we couldn’t really describe them in great detail, but now their numbers are dwindling, I can provide now excellent and possibly fictitious descriptions of the remaining hippies in the trees. Since these treesitters have decided to adopt names that the Mole People would be embarrassed to utilize for […]

Marshawn to Plead

While I was watching the ridiculous finish of the Croatia – Turkey match, news broke that Marshawn Lynch will plead guilty in his hit-and-run case.  Not at all a surprising result.  It’s definitely in Marshawn’s best interests to put this business behind him.  Then we can go on associating the terms “Marshawn,” “Hit” and “Run” with Oregon ’06 rather than May 31st […]

The Bears are Lawyering

For a lawyer, it’s a little surreal to see the Cal fan community so completely immersed in legal issues of late.  I take this all as proof that we’re collectively going through a dangerous bout of offseason withdrawal.  In any case, legal news is the order of the day and, being a Cal-bloggin’, law-talking guy, I gotta […]

SAHPC Ruling Links

See, people think that I have some issue with the treesitters being the ones holding up the athletic center. It doesn’t; it’s just a sideshow to the actual injunction. The thing’s going to get built. But the longer these people remain up here, the longer the football team has to endure the nonsense of these […]

Which Tedford Team Was Your Favorite?

A simple question for every Blue and Gold fan out there. Which year produced your favorite Tedford team? The 2002 team was the virgin experience. Kyle Boller, the beginning of Geoff MacArthur’s productive career, good offensive production. The 2003 team struggled with what one might call a sophomore slump. Took Rodgers about half the season […]
