Stake Your Place: Arizona State Preview

From a yardage standpoint, Cal looked on even terms with the Sun Devils last season (359 to 363). The Bears defense also came up big early, garnerng an early fumble return for a touchdown and two sacks and maintaining strong pressure on Carpenter through the first half. Even the running game was less than sparkling, […]

Thirty-Three and a Third

Wham, bam and whaddyaknow, the season is a third over (not counting the Emerald/Rose Bowl).  We have a newly-opened quarterback competition, uncertainty over the health of our star running back, a promising stable of young (or at least unfamiliar) wide receivers who have yet to assert themselves, and myriad other nagging questions.  In other words, […]

California – Colorado State Report Card

Quarterbacks: Kevin Riley is a work in progress. Although his pass protection isn’t quite as good as we’d like it to be, and his receivers have dropped some catchable balls (including one touchdown) he’s still underthrowing catchable balls or misreading routes by quite a bit. The rapport with his wideouts isn’t quite there yet. While […]

Colorado State – California Liveblog

After two long agonizing weeks, Cal football’s back on! We have two potential online feeds, click here or click here to see if either is working. No guarantees though, so keep Starkey radio in mind. We might have guest moderators, we might not, since it’s a home game and practically all the bloggers will be […]

A Nonsensical Preview of Cal-Colorado State, With Beaver on the Side

For those looking for stream information, there is none yet. It is not looking good, and you might as well get the All-Access Pass and follow Starkey if you want a 100% chance at following the game. Bar locations are being updated as soon as I can find them (and the map’s open for anyone […]

Bars and Meetups for Watching Cal-Colorado State

For some real insight into this week’s Cal-Colorado State game, you’d better check out this live chat. Okanes has been fantastic this year. He’s made my job of non-reporting that much easier.
