More Defense than Offense at Ole Miss

The Bears travel to the Deep South to take on the Rebels of Ole Miss at 9am(!) PDT. (What were they thinking?!) It’ll be hot, surprisingly NOT humid (under 50% for most of the game), and loud. I’m going with … Continue reading

Take the Points! Bears Could Win

This game will be closer than the 12-point spread — and with a break or two, the Bears could win it outright. UW’s defense won’t drop off that much from last year, but Cal’s offense — even with last week’s … Continue reading

Ducks? In Berkeley??

Tonight’s game between the Oregon Ducks and the California Golden Bears looks to be a close, hard-fought contest. The oddsmakers have the spread at 3.5 points, with Cal as the home underdog. With a bye week to prepare, Cal has … Continue reading

Big Game – Bigly!

Coming off a big with against UW, and with ND next week, I was thinking (for a moment) that Stanford might overlook Cal.  A little… However, Stanford MUST beat Cal to win the Pac-12 North.  Even then, they’re depending on … Continue reading

Can Bowl-Bound Bears Spoil Stanfurd’s Season?

Going into the 2015 Big Game, Stanfurd is alone at the top of the Pac-12 North, ranked #11, and has a chance to be in the Playoff if they win out. Cal, on the other hand, has just bagged its … Continue reading

Finally! – Offense Back On Track

Quick Pre-game post.  I’ll cut right to the chase. After three weeks of frustration, Cal finally breaks out of its offensive funk and gets back in the 40+ (or 50+) zone.  Utah, UCLA, and U$C watched enough of the Bears’ … Continue reading

Who Shows Up?

Today’s Joe Roth Memorial Game between Cal and U$C comes down to a simple question: Who Shows Up? U$C gave a strong indication of their answer last week in manhandling #3 Utah.  After finally ditching their problematic HC, Steve Sarkesian, … Continue reading
