This is a DBD. Proceed accordingly.
Edit: For those new to this, allow me to explain what the DBD is. SBN likes for its sites to have daily link posts. AthleticsNation has its Daily Link Dumps. Blazer's Edge has its Junk Drawer. So, we have our DBD. This is a place to put links in. The more Cal-related, the better. Please blockquote them to create a color differential that will make it easier to determine what is a news story and what is just up bla bla blaing. Also, do not quote too much or else!
There is no set time or person who does this. First come first serve. If I am up and it isnt done by like 745 Ill do it, but I hate to. So, please do it for me. Also, we tend to bring stories from:
1. Oficial Cal site
2. Local bay area SBN teams (and some SoCal teams)
3. Pac10 SBN sites
4. Daily Cal
Also, this is a daily open thread for your thoughts, feelings, hopes, and general admiration for me. GO BEARS!
BERKELEY - Cal has returned to the national rankings for the first time in 2010 at No. 24 with the release of the week three USA Today Coaches' Poll on Sunday. The last time the Golden Bears were nationally ranked was heading into their 2009 season finale at Washington (No. 19 AP, No. 19 BCS, No. 22 USA Today). The Bears have now been ranked among the nation's top 25 teams at one point in each of the last seven seasons and eight times in nine campaigns since head coach Jeff Tedford's arrival in 2002.
The Bears, who were among teams receiving votes (10) in the week two USA Today Coaches' Poll released last Tuesday, received 131 votes in Sunday's week three poll. Cal is also the fourth team listed among those receiving votes outside the AP Top 25, picking up 45 to mark the first time this season the Bears been among those receiving votes according AP.
