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 […]

Cal Football Spring Links and BlogLove

All the winners of the CFBAs should have been announced today and I’d just like to say I hate you all for not finding a single award to put me in (I’d take Worst Blogger Ever, just give me attention). Ha, I’m just kidding! Congrats guys. If I ever met you in real life, I’m […]

Saying Goodbye–Justin Forsett

Tex was a great player, a great kid, a stout Christian who did things right and played right. Every game you could expect 100% from Justin, healthy or not healthy. His effort was unparalleled, and he provided the clinching TDs in 4 of Cal’s 6 victories (Tennessee, Arizona, Oregon, Wazzu). While his size could be […]

Saying Goodbye–Tha1

It’s hard to see where you’re going DeSean. I know it’s tough for me to judge the type of player you are. One moment, you were Randy Moss in New England, doing everything in spectacular ways to help your team win, the next moment you were Randy Moss in Oakland, seemingly backing your way out […]

Combine/NFL Draft Links for Cal Prospects

I know some of you are chomping at the bit for Cal NFL prospects–this is a very talented class we’re letting go of. We can look at the rankings from the two sites who spend the most time compiling this decorum of data, Rivals and Scout (just for fun, we’ll add in Frank Cooney too). […]

Saying Goodbye–The Hawk

After a dreadful game against Arizona last year, I was a little weary of Lavelle taking the big snaps. That was dumb of me. Hawkins has made great strides since then, his work ethic carrying him to a higher plateau I’d never thought he’d reach. If he can keep at it (and it appears he […]

This Looks Familiar…

Well, at least we didn’t have the most prominent ankle injury of the football season. We’ll never really know how much Brady’s ankle affected him in the Super Bowl, but many of us will postulate. Yes, Brady did lead his team down the field 80 yards and score a go-ahead touchdown, but for the remaining […]

What If Tom Brady Had Come to Cal?

Yeah, sounds like a far-fetched premise off the top. So when I figured out how close Brady had actually come to being a Golden Bear I pretty much echoed Marshawn: “WHAT?!” (well, except the two of us were talking about different things and everything, but close enough). Nevertheless, the premise presented by this author is […]

Going Under the Mask

Seems prudent, at least during Super Bowl weekend. Seeking advice for the Cal football program, Coach Jeff Tedford apparently has an appointment with the game’s master strategist. Tedford will meet during the off-season with Patriots Coach Bill Belichick, according to a former Cal player now with New England. Ryan O’Callaghan, a backup right tackle, said […]

Saying Goodbye–Craig Stevens

It’s weird–I went to almost all the Cal home games the past two years, and Craig Stevens never seemed to hit a blip on my radar. Probably my fault. I didn’t know any better and was too focused on the meltdowns and big players that I miss the unsung tight end. Perhaps if the Bears […]
