CAL WINS THE MASOCHIST BOWL
Just announced at the game: Cal had 59 Olympians and 16 medals at the 2020 Olympic Games
Is it baseball season yet?
Cal student section chants "safety school" at USC during the media time out
scoooop and score!! you love to see it
Nice stop, Cal!
thank you, usc
No offense in the second half
Buttfumbling in the proud SC tradition of Mark Sanchez.
Man someone has a worse ST than Cal, and it's USC. wow
Cal's last fumble returned for a TD was on Oct. 13, 2017, against Washington State (26-yard return)
brooks!! let's go bears!!
Can we all just appreciate Dancy!
Cal wins the toss and defers to second half
8:10 PM kickoff. Good thing I am no longer in New York.
We can call Musgrave's 3rd down approach the Oakland Offense because it's Too Short.
defense did good
Saved by sc stupidity, where have I seen that before?
Offense has gotta do something here
Nice job Hearns!!
I would bet there are a lor of CAL fans watching the game on TV. Going to CAL for an 8:00 pm start, especially with kids, is a non-starter.
Wish Wilcox’s teams scored more TDs in the red zone.
Hearns is good, man!
I’m not just excited to finally beat SC. I’m excited to beat them in the Joe Roth uniforms. Cal always looks good when we beat SC but we looked excellent when doing so in these uniforms.
Fourth lucky special teams play
Good half of football by Cal, especially the defense. They did bend a bit but mostly kept everything in front of them and forced SC to settle for missed FGs and they scored a TD.
THAT'S THE GOOD SHIT
Brayden Rohme makes sure Brooks is across the line. I like that kind of physical play.
We took a bad penalty and gave them a first down on a long third and then we gambled instead of completing our assignment and we got burned. Seven points for the bad guys. Situational awareness is so key. If Hearns had let him catch that ball and tackled him right there then USC would still have been a yard short. Don't get me wrong, Hearns is a stud and a hell of a freshman, bit that's a tough learning moment.
Special teams doing ok
Surprised and disappointed that sc band is here
Wilcox asking Dart if he is ok. good on him
You lost, U$C! Stop playing that stupid song!
As a former O-liner and o-line coach I will say our O-line is woefully poorly coached. It's unbelievable to me how they are missing assignments on Pass Protection, how they can't stay on blocks. All our issues, start and finish with shitty o-line play. If they play well we can run the ball effectively. If we run effectively then we can pass effectively. If we can do both we move the ball effectively, score points and keep the defense off the field so they can stay rested. When I see three o-linemen taking on on d-lineman in Pass Pro and a LB come free on a delayed blitz, I just shake my head. They don't even make those mistakes in Pop Warner. Angus needs to go.
that was easily the coolest thing to happen all weekend
This is interesting Tony Gonzalez and TEs conversation
good finish guys! see yall next year
Game baby!! We beat Furd and USC in the same season....to bad we didn't play well against UCLA and we had Covid at AZ....we might be bowling.
That is an all time low in football broadcasting
Announced attendance is 42,076 😂
This is the worst USC team I've ever seen. It's like they don't have a coach
I continue to be surprised by the special teams tonight
I've watched half a drive and I'm already sick of Tribute to Troy
Happy to at least end the season on a good note! As always, hope we can figure things out by next year.
That was SC's lowest point total of the season. They had 16 against ASU and Notre Dame.
Good win to finish the season.
Season over way too early. See y'all in the Spring. Go Bears!!
Cal wins the pretend-Pac12 championship game
