DBD 9.23.08 Enjoy this special, limited time offer to play QB for Oregon

Yes, you too can play QB for Oregon!  Didn't think you had physical aptitude or the stomach for mind-crunching hits?  Didn't think you could memorize their complicated playbook?  Well, worry no longer!

Just fill out this easy questionnaire to see if you fit the bill:

1.  Are you currently able to walk?

2.  On a scale from 1-10, how much do you enjoy walking?

3.  How good do you look in what appears to a jersey dipped randomly in green and yellow paint?

4.  What condititon would you say your ACL is in?

I think I could play Oregon QB.  Thanks to my Oakland As love, I have a lot of green and gold colored clothes.  My ACL has yet to burst.  And, honestly, I'm not that enamored over walking.  I mean it's OK.  I guess.

Put me in coach!

Seriously, though, they are on their 48th string QB.  Insane props to them for having a 48th string QB.  I think our 48th string QB is Karl Dorrell in a mustache.  Actually, I'm about 100% sure it is.  5-48 is just Karl Dorrell in different mustaches.  Man do I hope Karl Dorrell loves walking.

If you do become the Oregon QB, you'll be the latest in a long line of prestigious names and even more prestigious injuries.  Let's take a look at Oregon QBs through the years:

So, there you go.  If you take advantage of this limited time offer, you TOO can become a QB as respect as Dennis Dixon or Stegosaurus. Oh, Stegosaurus, you tail caused so many unnecessary roughness penalties.

You can't afford NOT to do this!

And now, let's get to some links.  Not a lot today:

Men's water polo to take on Pepperdine:

Bear Bites

The No. 1-ranked Cal men's water polo team (6-2), the defending 2006 and 2007 national champions, will look to get back on the winning track when the Golden Bears open Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play Saturday, Sept. 27 at 12 p.m. at No. 5-ranked Pepperdine (6-3). Cal returns to action after its fourth-place finish at the NorCal Open Sept. 21 in Stockton where the Bears dropped a 6-4 decision to No. 4 UCLA and a 11-10 sudden death overtime defeat to No. 3 Stanford. It was the first time Cal had lost two straight matches since 2004, and it broke the Bears' nine-match winning streak carrying over from last season. A positive note for Cal was the play of freshman Ivan Rackov (Belgrade, Serbia), who just arrived to the Bears' program last week after competing at the European Championships for his native Serbia, and led Cal with eight goals in the four matches. The 6-0, 185-pound attacker also paced Cal with five assists and had five steals. Junior All-American Spencer Warden added five goals and a team-high seven steals, while sophomore Zach White had seven ejections earned.

This has been in several places, but let's put it here too.  Cal football on ABC:

BERKELEY - The California football game against Arizona State on Saturday, Oct. 4 has been selected for broadcast by ABC and will kick off at 12:30 p.m. from Memorial Stadium, the Pac-10 Conference announced Monday. It is the seventh Cal game this season selected to be televised with further selections expected.

Tickets are available for all remaining Golden Bear home games, including this Saturday's game against Colorado State and next week's Arizona State contest, by visiting CalBears.com or by calling (800) GO BEARS. The Colorado State game will be televised by Comcast SportsNet West (CSN-West) at 3 p.m.

New CSU head coach is a downer:

 

The Rams, he said Monday at his weekly news luncheon, are only three games into the first year of what he expects to be a multi-year rebuilding process. Colorado State University's 28-25 win Saturday over Houston gives the Rams a winning record for the first time since they were 4-3 in 2006, a week before beginning a 13-game losing streak.

"I remind myself, I remind my staff, I certainly remind my players and maybe I keep preaching it to you guys (reporters)," Fairchild said. "One game's not defining where we're going.

"I think we have an extremely talented coaching staff, I think we've got an administration here that really backs us and wants us to succeed. I think we have the right plan in place.

3rd string QB might catch passes for CSU:

T.J. Borcky, CSU's third-string quarterback, should see some playing time at wide receiver Saturday at California, coach Steve Fairchild said Monday.

Borcky, a 6-foot-4, 197-pound redshirt freshman from Orlando, Fla., began playing his new position with the first- and second-string offense during practice last week. He was on the field briefly during Saturday's 28-25 win over Houston, but a timeout was called before the snap and substitution changes took Borcky back out before he could play a down.

"He's going to help us as a receiver this season," Fairchild said. "We'll move him back, give him a shot at quarterback next spring ... Last week was finding out who he was and what he could do, and we were pleasantly surprised."

And don't forget the watching party:

> WATCH PARTY - CSU officials are arranging watch parties for fans to see the game on TV at Buffalo Wild Wings, 150 E. Harmony Road, and at least one location to be determined in the Denver area. Call 491-4666 for information on the Denver viewing party.

CSU's cheerleaders will be present at the Buffalo Wild Wings viewing party.

New kicker?

> KICKING CHANGE POSSIBLE - Fairchild said there is a chance senior Jason Smith might be able to kick field goals against Cal. Smith broke the upper part of his right arm during a mock game Aug. 23 but returned to kick the extra points following the Rams' third and fourth touchdowns Saturday against Houston.

Ben DeLine, the true freshman who has handled the kicking duties since Smith's injury, was 4 for 4 on field goals and extra points in the first two games but had a field-goal attempt blocked against Houston. Another field-goal try was aborted when holder Nick Oppenneer had trouble handling the snap and instead ran for a first down.

Fairchild said he hopes Smith will be cleared to punt at some point this season, too, simply to give junior college transfer Anthony Hartz added competition. Hartz is averaging 40.0 yards a kick.

 

So, there you go.  Dump away!  GO BEARS!
