The 2010 Cal Coaches Tour has been announced. Unfortunately, it looks like it's only one stop this year (down from the 5-6 in previous years). Nonetheless, it should be a good time (See posts on last year's stops at Pleasant Hill Part I and Part II, Sacramento, and Ladera Ranch). This year's tour should be unique, as it will be an introduction to how Cal will utilize the AT&T facilities in 2011. Click here to register.

For just $20, guests will enjoy light snacks, a chance to tour the home of Cal Football for 2011 AT & T Park, an insider's chalk talk from Cal coaches and a Bear Backer membership! Kids under the age of 12 are free to attend.
After the jump Ted Miller talks to Cam Jordan, Zack Follett sells custom Lions wood cuts, the Memorial Stadium locker room gets cleared out, a pair of former Bears are cut from the Seattle Storm, and several sports are off to a strong start in their respective NCAA tournaments.
- Ted Miller has a good piece on Cameron Jordan. Cam talks about what went wrong last year, how the Pendergast defense will help him, and how he and the team will respond to this year's low expectations.
- Some of you may remember that Zack Follett is a talented woodworker. He's currently selling 25 signed Detroit Lions logo cutouts for $300 each. Send a little extra and maybe he can get Best to sign it too...
The Memorial Stadium locker room is no more...
- Neither Ashley Walker nor Devanei Hampton made the final cut for the Seattle Storm. The fans believe Seattle cut the wrong Ashley.
- PC makes his return to Chad Ford's top-100 NBA draft prospects. Randle is 85th and PC is 91st.
- No. 17 men's tennis advanced in the NCAA Tennis Championships with a 4-0 victory over UC Irvine. No. 12 women's tennis also advanced, with a 4-1 win over USC.
- Steve Sodaro became the first Bear to win the steeplechase at the Pac-10 championships. He set the third-fastest time in school history.
- No. 4 women's water polo defeated no. 5 Michigan 12-8 to advance in the NCAA tournament. They fell to top-ranked Stanford on Saturday with a 6-3 loss. Overall, it wasn't an unsuccessful weekend. Cal women's water polo had never been to the NCAA championships, as water polo was not sanctioned as an NCAA Sport until 2001.
- No. 2 men's crew finished second behind Washington at the Pac-10 Championships.
- Softball defeated Oregon St 11-3 to complete the sweep of the Beavers.
