Cal football is back as the spring game kicks off today!
It's been about four months since most of us saw the Bears on the field. As is customary for Cal Day, we are able to watch the annual open practice. Fortunately the coaches decided to hold an actual game this year.
The coaches held a draft to determine the Blue and Gold teams. Avinash broke down the rosters and concludes that Blue has a sizable advantage over Gold. Maynard leads the Blue team while Bridgford quarterbacks for the gold team.
We have several members of the CGB team at today's event and we'll keep updating this post with all the latest info from the spring game. We'll even have coverage of the play called by one lucky fan as HydroTech breaks it down and explains why he would have called for the ball to be centered on first down.
