Bears end their longest Pac-12 Opponent losing streak.
Cal gave up zero sacks today. What a play by new OL group.
The story of this game was our re-invented o-line and how well they played. With them executing well, Jayden Ott was able to use his super human talents to rush for 274 yards (yes that's 274 yards!) and we had total offense of 599 yards. With the running game working, Tight Ends getting involved and our talented receiving corps doing their thing, fans who have been harsh critics of Musgrave finally were able to witness the multidimensional offense that he has given us and how well it keeps the opponent off balance...when we execute successfully. This was a hell of a fun game to watch. Our kids are going to gain a lot of confidence from this win. I think WASU will be a fun game as well. Go Bears!!!
Was the last time we beat Arizona when Alualu and Jordan dominated the Arizona backfield, Nick Foles threw two forward passes in a single play, and Shane Vereen sealed the game with a long TD run?
Turn me up on these headphones
a big shout out to Ott the Hoople and all the young dudes who carried the news today
Last year's Oregon State game was close, but this has to be the most satisfying win in the Wilcox era. Fantastic halftime adjustments, but the tide of the game was turning before halftime. Sincerely hope this is real change in the fortunes of this team and coaching staff.
Last time we scored SEVEN TDs? Last time we saw the game called with a dagger mentality? The 4th down call at the goal line to go up by 11 was brilliant. That was fun. GO BEARS!
I hope that any recruits Cal had at the game liked what they saw!
hahaha the mea culpa on the AZ board about your predictions, Rob, is gold. At least they're up front about it
I liked that Oladejo moved to OLB and Rutchena and Puskas played ILB for that vacated spot instead of Croteau playing Outside.
If you're not giving Run Offense a 95+ score you're an incurable grump.
I think Bill Musgrave got the rest of that offense.pdf downloaded to his iPad.
Folks, I’m just going to like every comment in this thread.
It feels good to finally beat Arizona. I don’t know what is going to happen to the Pac12 or Cal but I couldn’t live with this potentially being our last game against Arizona and this ridiculous losing streak lasting any longer.
Folks, it’s been quite some time since the football program had an athlete of Jaydn Ott’s caliber in uniform. Need to show this kid the love so he doesn’t immediately enter the portal at season’s end...so just throwing this out there.
Give early and often...encourage friends and family to do the same. I will be going door to door here in Santa Barbara, soliciting donations... ;-)
One concern I still have is we blitzed a few times and never got to the QB on those plays.
What did they tell the team at half time?!
