Internet Radio Lives

Here’s a plug for any college football fans with functioning ears.  Some Cal fan named “Eric” who allegedly blogs for something called the California Golden Blogs discusses Cal football on this week’s CFB Weekly internet radio show.  The show happens to be hosted by my buddy and former roommate Aaron, who despite secretly being a shameless homer for his unnamed alma mater, dispenses nothing but […]

For a Little Perspective

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 […]

Tearing It Down, Building It Up (Treesitters, Cal-Wazzu Previews)

With their days numbered, the hippies can now be seen live. ABC7 has put up a feed of the Oak Grove for Cal fans everywhere to view the carnage. Well, mostly of those two hippies freestyling and yapping at cops, but whatever. If we can’t get the game online, hopefully you’ll be able to watch […]

Abolish College Football Preseason Rankings

Brian Cook (possibly pictured above) is a fine writer and by all accounts, a maniacal human being. Runs it steady over at MgoBlog, my source for almost everything Big Ten (on the days I, you know, care about the Big Ten). He does many awesome things, his latest being inviting me to Blogpoll along with […]

Worthless Cal Predictions

Lots of varying predictions about what Cal’s season is going to look like only confirms one thing: Someone on this list is going to look damned stupid. Phil Steele already set the bar by ranking Cal #2 in the conference, certainly above most normal expectations. However he also had Cal #5 last season, which was […]

Ted Miller Really Loves the Pac-10 (But HATES Duck)

If you’ve been following this recent post-Washington columnist/now ESPN blogger, he finds some pretty good stuff around the Pac-10, which makes him a pretty good man for finding the various info that I need to know about the Pac-10. That being said, he’s been going a little nutty with his Pac-10 love the past few […]

Open Thread: Which Regular Season Game Are You Looking At?

We’re two months away from kickoff and Bears Necessity is kicking into full preview mode; time for the readers to open up about the upcoming season. Every Cal game is obviously a must-watch, but which one do you really have your eye on as “must-see”? There are a lot of great games on the calendar, […]

Dining in Hell: Cal-Michigan State Preview

Eight weeks to kickoff. A tantilizingly short eight weeks. Thankfully while we have a long and warm summer to bask in before we get there…oh wait, you mean this damned city is currently undergoing frigid fifty degree weather? That students are wearing sweaters instead of sundresses? That everyone is cold and implacable to one another […]

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 […]

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 […]
