An early contender for worst game of the year
well... on a semi-positive note...
I think the ACC will be easier to navigate.
Wait a minute....not to worry. Wilcox said in his postgame press conference that he and his staff would be looking at "8,000 things" to turn everything around. Inside intel has it that Wilcox is recording everything on a yellow legal pad and is already through 3,000 "things." Here's number 2,999...."No More, and I mean NO more kick-offs returned. We fair catch it the rest of the season. Wait a minute, Sam Jackson is fast, damned fast. Heck, Mike Pawlawski was on the kick-off team in 1990. Let's put him back there. Gotta shake things up!" Number 3,000..."get more throws in the flat to Jermaine Terry. What was that coach, Terry no longer here?" Number 3,001.......
Riddle me this:
A football team scores 14pts in the first 6 minutes of the game but their offense was never on field. How did they accomplish this?
Winner will be anointed the STs coach at Cal (or they can decline).
I'll have whatever is in Rose Bowl Oski's bowl, he must have some good ganja.
When does MBB start?
Cal didn't show up for the test, ergo grade = Big Fat, Glowing, Shimmering F
Cal just isn't very good. Too erratic. That last game was one of the worst I remember in the last 25 years. And that is saying something. I hope the Huskies go all the way this year, they are very, very good, and apparently without so much of the bravado and trashiness of past teams. Anyway, looking forward to being at the ASU game. They look as screwy as we do.
While I hate opponents rubbing our noses in our own guano, gotta remember the old adage, "play like shit, gotta eat shit!" (well, maybe it's not that old, since I just made it up, but it sure seems to fit) - After Saturday's game Cal is in the fertilizer business big time, and sadly, future business looks good, very good. We can name the on-field product "Clueless Carol's California Crap".
"Calamo and Bowlesman join some historic duos by posting their fourth consecutive 1-2 finish."
*beams with pride until he remembers the game.
The fiasco of that very first play. Seen that kind of overwhelming tide spill across the line before by a very good and hyped up opponent in key game. Heck, I think we've all seen it before and sensed it was coming but to what end, who knows before its hiked, disaster like we had or a breakaway run or pass that countered the rush intensity.
Right after it, I regaled myself with hindsight...."I knew it! you could see it coming! #$%^!!!" Ranted to myself....If its me coaching here, I would have used a tactic to try and diffuse their energy. (seen it done before). Would have established this in the locker room before coming out. Something like....On first play, we will not snap the ball and nobody move. I want the QB to look around like he's confused then with a herky jerky count, I will call TO with 1 second left on play clock. The QB will throw up his hands a bit, look exasperated and we all will have a "talk" about how much deep shit we might be in unless we get a grip right now.
