You know, if you read the new Pac-10 blog, you'd think Cal has gone 26-50 in the last six seasons under Tedford as opposed to the converse. Yes, the Furd upset Tedford last year, but does anyone seriously think Furd is going to catch Cal as long as Cal is committed to football? Ted Miller asked Tom Luginbill, ESPN recruiting expert, the following:
TM: You mentioned before Stanford doing a good job recruiting. Is Stanford challenging California in the Bay Area, or is it taking a national focus as it has in the past?
As far as I know, Cal locks the Yay down, at least from Stanfurd. That said, they really don't compete that much with one another. Cal competes with UCLA, Oregon, ASU and to some extent SC. I think ted Miller has been hanging with Ivan Maisel too much.
