Golden Nuggets of the day: Inaugural edition, 8.20.2009

This post is the first in what will become a frequent installment on CGB, a place where all the important links of the day are condensed into one post and frontpaged.  Think of this as the CGB version of AtQ's Morning Quack Fix.  This complements the DBD and is in no way designed to undermine or replace the DBD.  While the DBD is the day-long series of Cal stories, non-Cal stories, non-stories, and entertaining discussion, this is the place for a quick recap of all the day's major Cal-related stories.  This ongoing series is for those with little time on their hands or those who don't want to wade through 500 comments to get the delicious nuggets of wisdom.  With the fall camp underway and the beginning of the season two weeks away, there is a lot of information that readers may be missing out on if they can't manage to read all the way through the DBD.  Furthermore, the site is getting more and more traffic everyday as we approach kickoff.  This summary will get readers old and new all caught up at the end of each day.  Assuming I have enough stories to post, I can post these as often as daily on weekdays with one weekend post on Sunday nights.

Now, to the links! After the jump you'll find info on Tad Smith's season-ending injury, shifts in the depth chart on defense, an update on Best's health, rankings/predictions for Cal football, a transfer out of the Cal basketball team, and an update on the Coaches vs Cancer tourney in November.

By the way, if you have a better suggestion for a name for this series of posts, please let me know.  I haven't yet come up with anything that is as clever as "Morning Quack Fix."

 

Did you catch any stories I may have overlooked? Do you have any comments on the stories already posted? If so, comment away.
