Pac-10 football picks of the week: Jumping on USC, Arizona and UCLA (gotta like Slick Rick vs. Bellotti)

Went 3-3 last week but would have been 5-1 if not for the local duo. I picked against Cal and the Bears covered by one point, and I picked against Stanford and the Cardinal covered by a half-point. So close to a big week. And to some cushioning for my overall record. And to being slightly [...]

I've slowly come to a horrifying realization. The words that are coming out of my fingers are being mis-interpreted. When I write something like this: Funny Joke Funny Joke Funny Joke Funny Joke Funny Joke Funny Joke It actually comes out like this to you people: blahblahblahblahblahblahblahMarshawn. When I sit down to write these things, I put a lot of thought into which kinds of dick jokes I am going to use. So, to find out that people are misinterpreting my expertly written witicisms, well...
Who's going to win? Week 7 Pac-10 picks
ESPN Pac-10 Blog
Thursday Oct 09, 2008 10:08:09 AM

Posted by's Ted Miller We head into the meat of the Pac-10 schedule. I was 6-0 last week, 32-8 for the year. Thus far, I'm having a better year than the conference. USC 35, Arizona State 10: Hard to imagine Arizona State has a chance without quarterback Rudy Carpenter. In fact, it's hard to imagine the Sun Devils having much of a shot with Carpenter on one leg, though that's a far better prospect. The Trojans will roll with or without Mark Sanchez. Oregon 30, UCLA 17: We put the Ducks o...

In his first public comments since being replaced by Nate Longshore as starter QB, Kevin Riley sounded a lot like Longshore did when he lost to Riley out of training camp. Cal Bears: Blog | Forum | More

s much as we love Cal football and enjoy it, we must as always gripe gripe gripe (and don't worry, you haven't seen the last of drunken Cal fan!). I do have a complaint to register, and it has nothing do with football. It has to do with fashion. Masculinity dropping...dropping... Once upon a time, the Buffalo Bills had the most beautiful color scheme in all of football. Red, white and blue. I have no idea why the hell they decided to mess with this scheme, but five years ago they moved from thes...

(RoyRules put up this interesting FanPost last night. We thought, especially with the bye week, it would be create very cool discussion for people here. What is *your* Cal story?) Inspired by those silly jumbotron videos during the games, a comment from some other post here on CGB and shockingly BI. In any case explain here how and when you got into football, Cal football, when you entered Cal, how your football/life was at Cal and when you graduated (or when you will graduate), etc. Behind th...
Bye week mid-week
Bear Talk
Thursday Oct 09, 2008 12:17:14 AM

There were so many players wearing red jerseys at Wednesday’s practice, it almost looked like a Stanford practice. But fear not, there always is a sea of red during bye weeks as players get time off from practice to rest or heal up their bumps and bruises. A red jersey means a practice non-participant, and there [...]
Santa Rosa Press Democrat: Bypassed by 49ers, Cal's Jackson thriving with Eagles
California Golden Bear Football News
Wednesday Oct 08, 2008 11:13:00 PM

By MATT MAIOCCO DeSean Jackson, like Aaron Rodgers three years earlier, was the people’s choice. Or, he was at least the choice of 49ers fans with an affinity for Cal football. The 49ers passed on Rodgers, a quarterback, in favor of Alex Smith with the No. 1 overall pick in 2005. And the 49ers did not select the Cal receiver with either of their top two selections — Nos. 29 and 39 — in the most recent draft. Jackson’s rookie season has gotten off to a remarkable star...
