How to Watch UCLA-California: Game Thread

In all likelihood I’ll be at the game tomorrow, so no liveblog this time. And real life has interfered with blogging, so there will be a slower set of posts for the next few weeks. Alaska and Hawaii are getting #1 Texas vs. #6 Oklahoma State and I am terribly envious of them. Good for […]

Can Jeff Tedford Keep Cal Football’s Window Open?

We are halfway through what’s shaping like another modest California football season–decent rewards with moderate fulfillment. Naturally, only in college football would a 4-2 start get fans groaning. Coming off a head-scratching loss to an offensively potent but inconsistent Arizona Wildcats team, the murmurs of discontent grow louder than ever. The loss, by the measuring […]

Cal-Arizona Report Card

Nate Longshore: We’ve seen this script before. It’s the typical Nate Longshore game we’ve seen the past two years. Let’s move on before people start yelling. Grade: C Kevin Riley: Ditto. Grade: C Running backs: Just when it looked like Arizona was ready to run us off the field, Jahvid Best scorched the Wildcats and […]

Watching Cal-Arizona Online or At the Bars

The Bears are Roaring: Arizona Previews

The Bear Will Not Quit talks on Arizona’s spread offense “How do you defend against [archnemesis/former Texas Tech OC’s Sonny Dykes’s spread] offense? 1. You must limit yards after the catch. When this offense racks up 40+ points, it is due to big gains off short passes. Think of how the Patriots used Wes Welker […]

My Contribution To the Infinite Regress

At 4-1 with seven fat Pac-10 games to go, Cal is once again ranked, once again in first place in the conference, and once again besot with a doubting fanbase wondering just how good (or bad) the team really is.  Why are we still wondering?  Because college football is epistemologically… well, complicated.  The future is […]

The Line: Cal -2 at Arizona

This opened at Pick’em, but some sportsbooks have moved the line up. I wasn’t terribly surprised with the line, given all the staistical indicators seem to point toward this game going either way.

Is Nate Longshore A Better Quarterback Than A Machine?

(Started a thread about cardinal sins for Cal fans last night over at CGB. Come take a gander.) Lowell Cohn provides his bizarro logic as to why he rides the Nate Hate Train. I am not a Nate Longshore fan. I admit that. It’s nothing personal because he seems like a nice young man, polite, […]
