Justin Wilcox chatted with the media and previewed what the California Golden Bears will look like on offense in 2023.
If you haven't go and watch the Youtube videos of Ott and Cardwell. Ott makes really clear that he is a Fing BEAR! Blew off any interest from other schools. And Cardwell is such a thoughtful young man, about his demons and his happiness at being at Cal. Those two and other new guy from Tennessee might make up the most talented combos we have had since the Lynch/Forsett or Best/Vereen days. I'm fired up about the potential of this backfield. If the new Oline coach can get mediocre play out of the line, then Sam Jackson and these backs may light up the field with big plays.
Sounds like a Spavital offense, even if it's not the Bear Raid. We probably would have had a few more wins if our offense was just competent enough to give our defense some rest.
Bear Insider has a 39 minute podcast of Mike Pawlawski and Jake Spavital that everyone can listen to
Faster, better offense? Took ya long enough... really hoping this works out
One problematic issue with tempo is the D's lack of rest when the O goes 3 and out in less than a minute. Wilcox's traditional attempts to operate a ball control offense offered the D rest and the time for discussion and adjustments. Even ball control 3 and outs last 2 minutes. It will be interesting to observe how Wilcox and Spavital mesh when the offense sputters and the defense gets tired. This all points to the D needing extraordinary depth and conditioning.
Maybe. He has strength and nasty. He needs better quickness, but I thin he can find it inside. And he really needs to be coached up on technique, all our o-liners do.
Looking forward to the new scheme and new contributors! Go Bears!
Thank you for the update. Looking forward to seeing how all this will play out on April 15th. Also looking forward to the previews regarding the defense.
Does anyone know about Brett Johnson’s health? Hopefully his not participating in spring ball is precautionary and not due to continuing problems.
