Rushing the field with everyone was a blast. Love this tradition

I’d entertain the argument for the OttTrond Co-Players of the Game. Huge game for the two of them, and Cal keeps the Axe!

Watching Wilcox watch Ott… lot of affection and clear pride; he was beaming. Do like the guy as a human being.

Let's not lose sight of the important things like I TOUCHED THE AXE!

Still alive for a bowl. Hopefully the Bruins shot their bolt against $¢

Solid and methodical win. Reminded me a lot of the 2008 Big Game win, even if the score was closer in margin today than it was in 2008.

I am not the biggest Wilcox supporter and he falls well short as a HC, IMO, but I do respect that he beats Stanford. He should have a 5 game winning streak but 4-1 in the last 5 and 4-3 overall isn’t bad at all.

Thanks Rick!

Nice win.

I’m glad that the last time we play Furd as members of the PAC-12, that we win on their turf and keep the axe. As much as I want Cal to win against UCLA next week, Garbers dismantled USC at the Coliseum. And Cal rarely wins at the Rose bowl post DeSean Jackson.

THE OTT ABIDES

I will participate in this schadenfreude. Sinclair being ejected was deserved! We gave him the axe…. Or did he axe himself? I’m not sure how to use the axe in this context.

I’ve largely been a figurative grumpy ass old man with the uniforms and never wanted to see anything other than the 80s/90s dark navy jersey/gold pants/script Cal helmets, but I dig incorporating the Joe Roth helmets as part of the mix and match uniform options. They should go full Helmet Project and incorporate the block C’s, 78-81 gold helmet/center stripe/navy script Cal, and Joe Kapp bear claw ones too.

Next year is going to be weird

Cal fans: I'm giving us an A+ for the win but only a B+ for our performance. We still have problems generating pressure on the opposing quarterback. In addition, I'm a bit worried that we don't have more depth at running back and Mendoza is still making rookie mistakes. We are going to have to play our best game of the season next week if we are going to make it to a bowl. However, I like our momentum heading into the final game of the season. GO BEARS!!!!!!
