Golden Nuggets: Riley Declares Bay Area Bear Territory

Ted Miller at ESPN weighed in on the perception that Stanford has passed Cal as the best program in the Bay Area, but Kevin Riley isn't having it:

California quarterback Kevin Riley knew the question about rival Stanford was coming. He'd surely already read stories about a changing of the guard in the Bay Area. He probably was aware that more than a few columnists and fans had questioned whether his coach, Jeff Tedford, was capable of prodding the Bears into taking the next step from merely good to elite.

Changing of the guard? My tookus, said Riley.

"It's disrespect," said Riley with just a hint of edge in his voice. "We beat them last year, and our offense whupped up their defense pretty good. We beat them last year when they were at their highest point of their game."
