Flying Behind the Mullet

I remember being a freshman in 2004, watching Aaron Rodgers weave his way around the pocket and beyond. I was way too pampered to get that season as my first as a Cal fan, which is probably why I sometimes act like a brat when I talk about their downfall this year. You gotta take […]

Action Jackson Preview, Week 13 (Cranberry Sauce)

With Cal off and a regular season collapse nearing completion, I won’t pay much attention to general football this week. Okay, that’s a lie. But I’m exhausted from readying the offseason posts, so I’m going to sit on my ass and chow down, just like everyone else. I might check in for a special Thanksgiving […]

Why Tedford Sticks With Longshore

I know most of you are disgusted with Nate, who really did not perform well at all tonight. You know things are going pretty badly for you when the most exciting part of the entire game is seeing you hindered on the field and your backup looking ready and willing to enter the huddle. That […]

The Lights Go Out (USC-Cal Open Thread)

And so it will be for the California Golden Bears at Memorial in 2007. What looked to once be a showdown for the Pac-10 crown now is looking like a consolation trip to whatever third-tier bowl awaits the two of us. And you can only wonder at what could have been… You wonder if our […]

Pac-10, Up and Down

Taking a look at the conference, the Pac-10 has never looked stronger. No one will finish with ten losses this year, and the team that might finish last (UW) has the hardest schedule in all of Divison I. Respectable year for the Pac-10, which probably has asserted itself as at least the second best football […]

Cal-Wazzu and Cal-ASU Torrents

Wazzu is available here; ASU is available here. Enjoy. (Special thanks to chicagoaubear from The Bear Insider) You will need some ISO burning software to view the files, which I guess could be either Nero or one of the freeware options (Active ISO Burner might be one of the better options). What is a torrent?

Reveal the Contenders–Action Jackson Recap, Week 10

Man, this seems familiar. Up-and-coming Pac-10 contender rebounds from a devastating early season loss. Rebounds to crush the remaining schedule including several clutch home wins going into the stretch run. Loses a hideous trap game at Arizona where everything could go wrong. Are dead men walking going into LA and eventually fall short against the […]

The Cougars Growl–A Look Into Washington State

[metacafe 99814] People might recognize my laxness in posting of late. I assure you if Cal takes care of business Saturday night, they will grow more frequent by next week. I’m not neglecting this on purpose, but some detoxing from Cal football is just plain healthy after the worst October in half a decade. As […]

All of California is Ablaze (Action Jackson Recap, Week 9)

If there’s any consolation about this past weekend…no one else in California is cheering either. In fact, the metaphor of last week’s wildfires can certainly apply to all of California, as our rivals too fell into the flames. USC? Finished! The walls have crumbled! Falls to Oregon 24-17, who ultimately beat themselves more than Oregon […]
