It looks as though freshman running back Brendan Bigelow likely will redshirt. Cal doesn’t have to make that decision now, and there’s always the possibility he could come on early in the season as he continues to adjust. But it looks as though the rust of not playing last season was too much to overcome for Bigelow. He’s still getting used to playing on his twice-torn up knee and isn’t ready yet, although Tedford said Bigelow is getting better every day. UPDATE: Avinash here.
