Is there anyway that Tedford stays?

As we know with Cal sports, you have to learn to expect the unexpected. I would like to do this, by starting to prepare for the possibility that Tedford returns. Is this possible?

I think it really boils down to the following question-what were expectations for this year's team? First, as a qualifier, I didn't partake in the pre-season predictions about our possible record. However, if we look at the Holiday Bowl loss against Texas, we did see that our OL was exposed badly.

In my mind, our worst case scenario was that this team would win 4 games due to the terrible O-Line and Maynard having to run for his life. I expected wins at least over Nevada, Southern Utah, ASU, Wazzou and some combo of UCLA/ASU/UW.

Basically, were expectations too high for this team? I am pretty sure we didn't expect this to be a 10 win season and 8 wins seemed pretty lofty. Hence, are we putting too much pressure to fire Tedford, when this team wasn't really that good on paper?

The other confound is that most of our losses have been really close games for the most part. We haven't experienced the typical Tedford loss, in which we get blown out early against really good teams.

I still forsee Tedford getting canned due to the following-

1)Most penalized team in D1

2) Terrible graduation rates

3) Downward trend since 2008

4) Haven't developed a solid QB or been in the running for the Pac-12 title since Rodgers left.

Is there anyway that Tedford stays? Maybe Sandy buys the idea that this is a young team, that was besieged by injuries and that maybe with a competent QB along with a year of playing time under their belt, that the team will improve?
