Big Game Photo Extravangza - First Half

Royal Exchange

Pregame

Whew!  So many posts and photos so far and we've barely scratched the surface.  We haven't even gotten to any actual game action.  Well, that is about to change.  And it got underway pretty quick as Jahvid Best took a potential 5 yard loss and broke the tackle for a 60 yard run!  Of course, it wouldn't have happened if this joke Daily Cal prank by Stanford had been accurate.

Damn those Stanfordites!

Luckily, that was just a prank and Best did razzle dazzle his way down the field.

Jahvid, you so dreamy!  I think any RB prospect should think very seriously about coming to Cal.  How many Tedford RBs are there in the pros now?  Forsett, Lynch, Arrington.  O'Keefe was there, too.  Echemandu (sp?).  Barring something crazzy, Best has a great shot.  Maybe even Vereen, who knows?  If Penn State is Linebacker U, I hope Cal can create a reputation for Running Back U.

Cal special teams players watch the ball roll to the 1 yard line.  Bryan Anger is a GOD:

Fans were hoping for a safety at that point:

N1218201_42493636_4585_medium

Instead they drove about 80 yards and settled for a missed field goal.  But think about this.  Without Angers punt, Stanford probably scores a TD.  Huge punt.  Just huge!

Riley gets taken down.  This might be on that pass to himself, because I don't remember him scrambling much besides that:

Riley didn't have a lot of great passes on the day.  Including one underthrown duck that got picked in the end zone.  Frustrating.  But he did have one perfect pass to Vereen down the sideline for a big gain and TD.  The fans went CRAZZY!

A LOT of people went crowd surfing on Saturday.  I mean that's what happens when you score that many points.  Fun times!

Jeremy Ross showing off his dance moves!

Always remember, when there is a kick off, you spin your hat in the air.  Spin the hat.

And that, my friend, is what a goal-line stand looks like.

And quickly, it was 10-3 at half:
