Cal Recruiting Recap Event

At 6 PM this Thursday, February 12, at the Bancroft Hotel, the good folks at the Bear Insider are putting on their annual new recruit montage and Q & A with a Cal coach.  This will be the fourth year in a row that I have attended, and if you're the type that wants to see our newest Bears on display (sometimes years) before they hit the field, (or the masochistic type that wants to hear about all the players we were thisclose to landing), then you'd be wise to pony up the $25 and attend.  You can find out more about the event here; the direct link to the registration page is here.

Unfortunately, it seems Tedford will not be in attendance as per usual.  The past few years he's been great describing the new guys and specifically answering questions about the team and returning players.  Instead, it looks like Kenwick Thompson, the linebacker coach and recruiting coordinator, will be the one answering questions about the Brock Mansion party yacht.  It's a bummer that Tedford won't be there, but I'm actually pretty excited to hear what Thompson has to say; maybe he can finally explain why Syd isn't our starting wide receiver.

I've had a great time attending the last three years, and I know that $25 bucks is a bit hard to stomach, but hey, last year there were chicken skewers and satay sauce!  If you're a student and short on cash, post your sob story here; I did this when I was a senior and a generous cyberbear paid for my admission.  It doesn't hurt to try, you damn mooch.

There was so much material from last year that I ended up writing a three part series, here, here, and here.  I'll probably do something similar again, so if you're too cheap or lazy to get out there, now you can rest assured that I'll relay some of it back to you.  And if you want a certain question answered, post it in the comments and if I like it and you bribe me I might consider asking it.

On the other hand, just show up.  It's worth it, it's interesting, you can hobnob with people that make a lot more money than you do, and as a bonus, I'll be wearing a nametag with my handle printed in addition to my name, so you can discover my super secret identity.  Say hi, and see you Thursday.
