A potential stunning turn to wrap up 2021.
Best reason not to play in the Gator bowl: as Cal has a reputation for improving as the season progresses, we should hold out for a cancellation in the CFP!
Nice to think about, but Wake is a pretty good team that would probably wipe the floor with a Cal team that would not have time to get properly prepared and conditioned. Plus some of the guys who have already opted out of 2022 in a Bears uniform- Remigio, Tonges, Mettaur, Brooks, Teves - would likely say no thanks. I mean, once you say you're out, you're out. Could be an embarrassment if they play with a depleted roster. Who wants to watch another game like Arizona? If offered, Cal would probably be smart to say no thanks.
Avi just tweeted Cal's season is over.
Tough to see the Cal machine being able to pull something like this off....this is not an Athletic Department or University that can think outside the box, which is needed in situations like this.
Spent a few minutes to see if I could find a player who turned down being in the draft so the cold pick what team they chose to try out for. I'm sure that has happened but I can't prove it.
But here's a list of some famous and non-famous players, with pictures and some commentary, who ended up playing pro football after not being drafted. There are other websites that cover the same topic.
As a fan, it’d be nice to see our team get one more shot to display one of their good games to end this ambiguous season on a good note. It just seemed incomplete and unsatisfying to me.
No way Garbers will agree to play and get injured, thus hurting his NFL chances and an NFL contract. And we have almost zero experience for a backup quaeterback. How attractive will Cal be to Wake and, especiaally, the bowl sponsors, who want to try to fill seats, under those circumstances, which will undoubtedly unfold.
For much the same reasons, I doubt Wilcox will want to run the risk of injury to his troops who have not practiced a bit and probably have been easting high on the hog.
Makes zero sense, but is good for some news out of the Bears for a day or two.
So it's a Schrodinger's Bowl?
Interesting. I wonder if Chase would be eligible ~ has he already declared? Would be great for the lads to get more practice time in, good for development.
