Cal announced the 2010 football schedule, which features a few changes since the last time we saw it. Cal now plays Washington on the Saturday after Thanksgiving instead of Sept 25th and plays Washington St on November 20th instead of November 6th. While it may be snowing when Cal heads up to the Palouse, it will be better than playing 11 weeks in a row.

After the jump we have another update on Jorge's knee, the benching of UCLA's starting point guard for the start of tomorrow's game, JO's year-end assessment of Kevin Riley, and more.
- JO begins his season review with an assessment of quarterbacks. While he had some ups and downs (though some of the downs were due to factors beyond his control), Riley still needs to improve. JO gives QBs a C.
- Two of Buster Sports' five most disappointing games of the season feature Cal. At #1 was Cal's forgettable loss to Oregon and at #4 was the loss to USC.
- Gutierrez likely won't return against USC, but is hopeful to return next week. Monty says the injury is related to the knee surgery Jorge had in the offseason.
- Point guard Jerime Anderson has been benched for the start of the Cal-UCLA game, as he was late to Sunday's rehab session for his injured groin. Malcolm Lee will fill Anderson's place as starting PG and freshman Tyler Honeycutt will get his first career start in Lee's place.
- Randle is among the 20 finalists for the Cousy Award, honoring the nation's best point guard.
