Cal Fans are Spoiled with Incredible Coaches, Need a Reminder

Since I started paying attention to Cal football/hoops, I've noticed that I barely ever witnessed losses at the games I went to. Endless trash talking on Tedford from my older brothers with Pac12 roots (one Oregon and one Arizona) motivated me to dig up some facts to defend my leaders with.

Teddy and Monty have served their Cal faithful admirably. While we know road victories are exciting and crucial in order to compete for Championships, holding down the Berkeley Fort is so dang entertaining for the fanbase.

Here is a breakdown of Tedford's home record since we hired him:

2002: 4-3

2003: 4-2

2004: 5-0

2005: 4-2

2006: 7-0

2007: 4-2

2008: 7-0

2009: 4-2

2010: 4-3

2011: 5-1 (counting Candlestick game)

Total: 48-15 (winning 76% of his games)

Here is a breakdown of Ol' Monty's home record since we hired him (counting exhibition games and the NIT game):

2008/2009: 17-2

2009/2010: 16-1

2010/2011: 13-6

2011/2012: 18-1

Total: 64-10 (winning 86% of his games)

These numbers were staggering to me when I first saw them. I realize getting an Allen Fieldhouse-like 89-1 run is pretty much impossible for a school like Cal, but I strongly believe our team generals are performing extremely well when battles are in Berkeley. My hat goes off to you Mr. Montgomery and Mr. Tedford. I appreciate the hard work and look forward to cheering on your squads for years to come. GO BEARS!
