For a Little Perspective

Posted by: Tony on Sunday, September 7th, 2008

While we digest the good, great and not so great from yesterday’s game, here’s a little something to reflect on.  I went back into the record books to answer a few questions I had.  When was the last time Cal beat a conference opponent, on the road, by at least 63 points?  Answer:  Never.  When was the last time Cal beat a conference opponent by 63 points period?  Answer:  Only happened once — beat Stanfurd 67-0 in Berkeley.  BUT, according to the good people at wikipedia, the 1918 Big Game was an unofficial match between the Studen Army Training Corps (must have been some Great historical event going on or something).  So, technically speaking, this is unprecedented.

Ponder that for a moment.  The Wonder Teams.  The Thunder Teams.  Pappy’s Boys.  None of them accomplished what the Bears accomplished yesterday…
