The nightmare is at our doorstep.
My thoughts are simple, Jim Knowlton has been a failure at every level and must be fired.
Cal sports no longer cause me nightmares, Avi.
They've simply helped condition and ready me for all of the other soul crushing disappointments that life can throw at you. I suppose that's something.
Hell just keeps getting hotter.
If Taylor goes to the farm, & Knowlton/Fox are still employed, Cal might as well forget P5 relevance & petition to join the Ivy League. Not that we'd beat any of their MBB teams, but just to have some connection to a few like-minded souls, to feel a sense of purpose again. Otherwise, tee up another Taylor [Twellman gif: "What are we DOING?!" & play it on a loop] cuz nothing else matters at that point. Revenue sports are a joke of a mockery of a sham of a farce of a mockery of a sham.
This is all Bob R's fault for not being persuasive and forceful enough in his emails to Knowlton. Perhaps our consolation prize will be a multimedia interactive statue of Starkey outside the stadium with a large button you press to hear him call The Play with clips playing on waterproof TVs that flank the statue. Except every nth time someone presses the button, two little doors open up in the statue and a spring-loaded boxing glove pops out and nails you in the face.
This is your weekly reminder that Justin Wilcox took home about 47000 dollars after taxes this week while a guy who stated “Cal is my dream job, I love public education, and I’m happy just being able to go to Starbucks once a day” took home a meager 3200 bucks and is about to go coach “Cal’s arch rival” and the complete antithesis of public education.
Also doesn’t have 10 transfers out and 0 transfers in.

This was not only feared but expected based on some pretty open chatter.
I could see why he'd be tempted by the Furd job despite it being the source of all evil and whatnot. They seem to not have high expectations for coaches, a lot of patience, etc. I wanted Taylor as Wilcox's replacement but that's not happening this year. Granted, Taylor's success isn't guaranteed at Cal because Cal itself has administrative problems that coaching can't fix.
I wish him success but really want it to come at Cal someday instead of Furd today.
Taylor’s a free man in Paris, unfettered and alive.
I wish they hired Garrett or Greg Roman
Knew there was 0 chance he was leaving for an OC job, but good lord if he takes the furd job it will be beyond devastating. I'm hopeful the Spavital hire can swing our momentum in the right direction, but if it doesn't work and we're stuck with Wilcox's continued mediocrity while Troy Taylor turns around furd... I don't even want to think about that.
DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM Troy Taylor gonna kill us isn't he?
Stanford hired him. Still not really tripping.
Am I the only one who isn't that enamored with Taylor? He was at Cal when I was at Cal, so I get it. But still...I'm not that scared of him at the Farm.
What did I tell you guys 3 weeks ago?
Troy Taylor will be the next furd coach per very reliable sources.
I hope Jim Knowlton and Carol Christ are fired with cause for this shit show they’ve forced upon the athletic department and larger university.
We have literally zero transfers in but 10 plus out.
Our basketball team is 0 and <I stopped fucking counting>
And Knowlton uses our donations to fund shit dick coaching and absolutely zero pr in a metro area sans a pro sports team other than the A’s
There is are reasons why Shaw left Stanford. Taking that job is a head coaches death wish given the portal and NIL environment. Stanford has not accepted the fact that college football has put the player before the coaches and the school.
I am officially done with Cal athletics!
Salute to all of you still here. Good luck not having a heart attack and/or getting divorced although I strongly suspect those remaining are the slave/bottom/subordinate type.
No more money ever to this university.
Unfor fucking giveable what this university has become.
First Tosh, now Troy…
People don’t Judas you repeatedly because you’re a swell dude.
