Golden Nuggets: Dykes discusses difficulty in developing

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Yeah, the alliteration bit ended up hurting the headline in the end. Keep your expectations low for my work and this will work out better for all of us.

At today's press conference, Coach Sonny Dykes said what we've all known for weeks now--it's going to be hard work to rebuild the Cal program.

Team leaders are instrumental in this process, but they aren't immune from injuries. With the team's leaders all off the field, Dykes has seen some players step up to fill the void.

One sign of progress in our rebuilding mission is the return of QB Jared Goff, who attributes his strong recent performances to mature lesson he's learned.

Another player who recently began to impress the CGB crew is LB Hardy Nickerson, Jr. Unlike Goff, however, Nickerson will be unable to finish out 2013 riding that success as his injury will keep him out of action for about half of a year.
