Gonna keep it as a single gamethread today until the code errors are removed
These are the guys I know for sure are there from social media posts the last 24 hours.
This game confirms how weak overall the program that Wilcox has built is. No speed, no depth, poor coaching. Covid excuse is shallow.
We just lost to an 0-8 team because we have a back up QB who was unprepared and sucks. We would have been better off giving Zack Johnson a couple of series in the second half. I blame Wilcox for this. And, I wonder if they told all the guys who missed the trip to avoid Halloween parties last weekend. Probably not. Covid is NOT an excuse for this loss. Piss poor preparation it the reason for this loss.
How could the coaching staff leave their QB2 this unprepared? Astonishing
Given the loss of 24 players, including many starters, and a number of key coaches, it was laudable that Cal even agreed to play this game. There's no team in the country that could play to their potential given what they went through the past few days. The easy way out was to simply forfeit.
Tbh Arizona is garbage. Actually sad they are giving it their all and it is this competitive. Had this been a normal game it would of been a blow out win for the Bears. We must be cursed!
We won the 1st half by virtue of turnovers.
We tied the 3rd quarter by score.
We will win the 4th quarter.
If plummer was a better QB we would be in huge trouble instead of big trouble
Brutal! Lack of depth exposed. And whatever COVID rules were so over the top. Cal wont ever be able to build a program in this environment.
I’m pretty hot about this one. Vocalizing to the dog who slunk away. Hot, that this was winnable with some sort of offensive tweaks beyond the standard blue plate fare.
This is on coaches, kinda setting Glover up to fail.
Here's the good news.. If Garbers comes back next year that means we'll instead start 2023 with 0 experience at QB instead of 2022.
This game makes me feel like I'm drunk.
Arizona is Cal's best offense
Maybe the Bears can quasi-teabag their way into more Arizona dick punches.
Glover is just setting everyone up for the 4th Q miracle shot
given 60% of the line is new, they held their own. Like to see more running in 2nd half. Glover is doing fine. Throwing 50/50 balls that the receivers have to fight for to help Glover out. D is playing well, just need to hit Plummer a few more times.
It’s Milner time. It can’t get any worse
Elijah Hicks let him get a first down there. He just gave up.
If this is our roster next week we’re gonna get cooked by usc
Strategic false start!
At least we know Glover can throw
We needed a ref crew that doesn’t throw a lot of flags. We didn’t get one.
Wilcox is here, also saw sirmon
I like seeing new players so .... as long as we win.... it will be fun.
Just throw this one away folks. Killed by Covid and the loss of twenty players. Yeah, kind of on the coaches for not having a functional 2nd string option at QB.
We need a recruiting head coach, and coached that can “coach ‘em up.” Until then ….
Arizona should be ashamed of them selves. If I was on the Arizona team I wouldn't be celebrating. Literally took a ridiculous circumstance for them to win. In reality if we had our normal team we win by like 5 touchdowns.
The Big Game should be a battle; Stanford played the worst game I've ever seen last night. I turned it off in 2nd quarter with Utah ahead 38-0.
They storm the field for beating Cal lol
Well, our second stringers are just a little worse than Arizona's first string. Oh well.
All right here comes the 4 and out!
Our defense is either gassed or decided to be bad at the worst time of the game
I think it’s up to the defense to score
This game makes the Cheez Its Bowl look like the NFL
was that thirty yard penalty the longest gain of the day for the Bears?
the AZ asst coach did a dick punch to the ref
12 minute game winning field goal drive right now. Who says no?
WHERE'S THE 2ND HALF THREAD? I WANT TO LAUGH IN SICKENING DELIGHT AS NON-SUBSCRIBERS CANT POST!!!!
Their OL is worse than ours
HAND THE BALL OFF TO DAMIEN MOORE
Ok just one fucking first down! That’s all that matters right now. Just get a first down. Fuck the rest of the game.
Breaking news: this just in- 2H to be played by the respective rugby teams
We’re definitely losing the punting battle
Here's some facts about my childhood.. I lived in Tucson in the 2nd-3rd grades and I was best friends with the stepson of the Wildcats head coach at the time Dick Tomey, so I went to all home games and was big into Bear Down. Also, Sean Elliot and crew won big in basketball, and I performed their Wildcat Rap in a talent show. And, one of my neighbors found a Gila Monster in their pool and were the talk of the town. Nevertheless, I've since grown to hate the Wildcats because of the shit that has happened there with Cal.
Hope our defense scores in this game
Boomage = MVP
Told y'all this is gonna be fun!
