2011 Season Preview: The California Golden Bears And Schizophrenia Medication

9

If you guys aren't reading Bill Connelly's work at Football Study Hall, you're missing out on great writing and analysis from the premier college football statistical writer. If you haven't read anything about Cal football lately, this is a good look back and a good look forward based on the numbers. I don't agree with everything--college football advanced stats are still primitive--but his analysis is solid. Here's a sample quote. "What Greg Schiano is to Rutgers, Jeff Tedford is to California. In the last nine years under Tedford, Cal has had eight winning seasons; in the 28 years before Tedford took over, Cal had eight winning seasons. But like Schiano, Tedford's program has regressed in recent years, and he's reached the "Has he peaked?" portion of the general coaching life cycle. He has recruited rather well and produced plenty of individual talent, but the overall product on the field is not as good as it was in the 2006-07 window. Can he get it back? And ... exactly what happens if he doesn't?" Also. "Some teams have ups and downs; Cal needed a Thorazine prescription [in 2010]."
