I’m so bummed. How many years do we have to endure this garbage? So many lesser universities finding success. We don’t make a commitment to sports but expect our alumni to do the same.

I miss the days when we were dominant on both offense and defense. Those were fun to watch.

Fire Knowlton. Fire Wilcox. Fire Musgrave. Preemptively fire Mark Fox.

Any guesses on the stupid cliches Wilcox will say in his press conference

This feels WAY worse then the end of the Dykes era

I want to not care about Cal football, but I'm still mad again tonight.

I wonder how much of the early success was DeRuyter?

Just remember folks, winning off the field is important too (or did she mean, in lieu of????)

That was worse than the Colorado game. We are almost as bad as Colorado and that is saying something.

That wasn’t even a football game. Was the offense on the field? I remember one pass to Hunter. That’s it. Seriously. What a disaster.

Does Cal has the worst Athletic Dept in the P5? Maybe Rutgers or Vandy or something? And bragging about Olympic sports is like corporations bragging about ESG- its fine if the fundamentals are strong but otherwise its a clear indication management has no idea what they’re doing.

Wilcox has lost this team. See ya in 2 years folks.

Jeez....The third stringers are kicking our ass! This is bad.

Just post the score card form now please.

Is there really zero chance that Wilcox gets canned after this season? Even if we lose 8 to end the season?

Rule #1 of being a nepotistic College Football Coach: Seek job opportunities at Cal.

Rule #2: Hire ya boys

Rule #3: Never play a talented backup but do play an untalented backup

Fire people Now. Send a message. If you don’t we can’t take you seriously as a coach that cares about this program.

3 points offense.

What a disgrace. FIRE THE WHOLE GROUP OF THESE LOSERS NOW.

Really tired of hearing Yogi Roth apologize endlessly for Wilcox.

Yeah we will go heavy in the portal Yogi. We’ll lose all of our talent in the portal because of your boy.

Milner deserves a chance for no other reason than Plummer is just AWFUL. Was he even trying on those last two plays? He missed both of those receivers by at least five yards.

Expand full comment

Somebody tell Fleming that we already have 18 offensive lineman

This team ain’t beating Stanford, folks.

We are down 28 w 6 mins left …. and Plummer is still playing!!!

You wound me, JW, you wound me

We should just fire everyone and the let the WriteForCalifornia game chat call plays next week. It honestly couldn’t be any worse than this.

Let's see if Wilcox is sane and brings in Millner. Game is over. Mendoza should play as well.

Expand full comment

Does this game mean we aren't going to the Rose Bowl?

Expand full comment

Less than half left in 4th quarter and our offense still has not scored.

Expand full comment

Is there a team in power 5 that Cal would be favored to beat right now?

Expand full comment

Am I misremembering or did FTX pay for part (all?) of the field deal with crypto? Knew that was going to be a gigantic mistake.

Expand full comment

Now we see Millner right.

Can’t believe what I’m watching LMFAO

Musgrave is such a disaster. We were doomed when Wilcox refused to fire him after Colorado.

We are the kings of sh*t mountain.

Backups in for Oregon state and still…nothing

Rooting for your team during difficult times is way harder than jumping on a bandwagon and only accepting perfection. You try it here in Corvallis.

My email to Knowlton,

“Jim my boy, I must say: having loved Cal since my first memories during the Snyder era; having watched that administration botch retaining Snyder; having watched mooch fail us and then endured the Holmoecaust; having watched some fake Native American and stinky hippie lady hijack long long long overdue stadium renovations and a decade overdue program wide uptick that prevented me from taking my father and grandfather (both veterans and blues- one a regent and former attorney for the university) to a game before their passing due to literally no ADA accessibility; having watched Tosh Lupoi literally Judas his alma Mater for aglorified canoe and 500 grand…This is an entirely new low. And not by a little. We have a clan of nepotistic coaches from that liberal arts university up north driving this football program into the ground and basketball is not that far behind.

Why? How many national championships does Oregon have? How many Jimmy Doolittles does Oregon have? How many Earl Warrens? How many inventions that could literally be linked to saving democracy? I can keep going all day…It’s a crap college with a trendy football program that is nothing historically.

We need someone who has pride in this program and this university. Someone who knows and respects what Joe Roth was. Someone who doesn’t blame their own shit performance on the city of Berkeley or empty stands during yet another 3-9 season. Someone that knows that the greater Bay Area is perhaps the greatest recruiting hot bed in football history. Someone that knows to recruit locally. Someone that knows that Tillman, Brady, Allen, Adams, et al all grew up locally and were spurned by Cal for overrated Arizona and Texas recruits and that they are the key to bringing this program back.

Troy Taylor is that man. And until he or another alum of the greatest university on the planet is announced as head coach I’m sorry but count me out.

Even by recent Cal standards this is extremely painful to watch. And it’s not just this year either and not just the drunken grumblings of a few young blues either. It’s cross generational and it’s not going away. The old blue apathy that protected bad administrations of yore is dying off quickly and even by those standards this current iteration of Cal athletics is not only pink slip worthy but worthy of a “don’t let the door hit you on the head on your way out”.

Thanks. Do your job and resist your first instincts which are apathy and nepotism or it’ll be your name after #fire next broadcasting endlessly across the alumni network.

Thanks and try not lose a baseball or gymnastics program in the process.

Sent from my iPhone”

I know what you’re thinking. Do I really think I’m helping by sending such an email?

Why yes. Yes I do. This shmuck needs to understand that blue bloods with Cal roots do exist and I will not shut up until he’s in the unemployment line. This is an unforgivable sin. He is literally responsible for driving our entire athletics program not only into the ground but perhaps out of existince. F Wilcox! F Musgrave! F Greatwood and double mother F Knowlton! I guess if you’re cool with being the generation that sat idle by during the dissolution of Cal athletics then just go on about your day and keep your mouth shut full of apologies and that old blue apathy we all “love.” Btw great call on FTX lmao!
