Jerry Rice Jr. apparently wants to be a lot of things.
Ok, after watching that OSU game yesteray, who else is PSYCHED for MSU tomorrow? Last year, I felt so nervous going into Tennessee. Even though this team seems less talented than last year's squad (on offense at least), I feel a lot calmer. Maybe it is because MSU isn't as hyped a team as Tennessee, I don't know. But man, even though it was just OSU/Stanford, that was an exciting game.
Because it was football! And it counted!
And it had a crazy ending. This might bring back a few memories to you:
Oregon State's Darrell Catchings absorbed a hit from Stanford safety Taylor Skaufel just short of the goal line and fumbled into the Stanford end zone with 57 seconds on the clock. The touchback halted a Beavers comeback and Stanford was able to hang on for a 36-38 win at Stanford Stadium.
Why does the Stanford football team have a cartoonishly oversized deck of cards on the sideline?? This makes no sense?
Well, they are the winner. The winner. The chicken. The dinner.
Let's get to some links:
Women's volleyball looks to have a successful season.
BERKELEY - No. 5 California looks to return to prominence after the most successful season in school-history, advancing to the NCAA semifinals.
THE FACTS: The No. 5-ranked California volleyball team opens the 2008 season by hosting St. John's and UC Santa Barbara, Aug. 29-31, in the Cal Molten Classic at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, Calif. The Golden Bears will take on the Red Storm in a 7 p.m. match on Friday (Aug. 29), before facing the Gauchos in a 1 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 31) match. In between, St. John's will tangle up with UC Santa Barbara in a Saturday, (Aug. 30) match at 1 p.m. Live statistics for all three matches will be available via GameTracker and Cal fans can watch the Bears live on the internet via Cal All-Access. Please visit www.CalBears.com for links to stats and video.
Cal is really getting into this blog thing:
BERKELEY - Golden Bear fans who are unable to attend in person can add an extra dimension of information and enjoyment to their football gameday experience with the official in-game blog available via Gametracker on CalBears.com, starting with Saturday's opener vs. Michigan State and continuing with every home football game this season.
Access to the blog is easy and free with an Internet connection. Simply scroll to the schedule section at the bottom of the homepage and click the "Gametracker" link next to the "Football vs. Michigan State" listing. The same can be done from the football schedule area of the website by clicking the "Gametracker" graphic in the right-nav info box.
I feel tired, I think this is a good start. A bunch of link. So, let's dump some more! If you see any Cal-related links, esp. related to football and/or the MSU game, let's dump em here. Dump away! GO BEARS! BEAT THE SPARTANS!
Maybe Nate Montana can xfer from ND and it can be 4th grade pick up football all over again.
Unfortunately Tedford has yet to offer him. Not sure why you wouldn't offer a child star star of his stature. That would be perhaps one of the biggest boosts to Cal recruiting since Desean Jackson. Not by any means, because Rice Jr. is a stand-alone talent (which he has shown signs of), but because it would be a huge draw to other recruits who are.
Given Jerry Sr.'s recent mentorship of Djax and appearances at our pro-days I think it would be a huge mistake not to offer this kid and get him in Blue and Gold.
