DBD 6.3.09 (School) Year in Review

Well school finished today for me. It was a good year, other than the fact that I got sick and missed a month in school. I think Cal has been out for a few weeks now, and so this is a look back at this past season of Cal athletics.











First, football. The team went 9-4 with a bowl win over Miami. Personally, I think it was a successful season. It wasn't groundbreaking, sure, but it was a solid season and one that we can be proud of. This wasn't the most talented team, but I think the played to their level. Any non-elite team is bound to lose on mistake game a year (Arizona), plus we lost 3 tough road games. All of the teams we lost to won bowl games. I am giving this season a grade of B+. Solid, and a good building block for future success. What grade would you guys give the season?


Now basketball. To quote CBK "Holy Balls Wow". We expected nothing and got a great season. Monty laughs at you and your predictions of us being 9th in the Pac. Jerome Randle found himself, PChris made himself into a draft pick, and JORGE IS A FUCKING GOD. This season gets an A. Who cares that we lost our NCAA game. This season was a treat. What grade would you guys give the season?

I was going to do a list of all the teams that finished in the top 4 of their sport, but finding out the info on this was harder than anticipated. If you want to give a shout out to any team, I can include it in the post. I believe we are currently 5th in the Director's Cup. All hail Sandy!
