After Saturday's loss against Arizona, select Golden Bears participated in the routine post-game press conference; for our complete coverage of player quotes, follow us @GoldenBlogs!
With his eighth loss on the season, the wear seems to be showing on Coach Sonny Dykes:
Sonny at podium now, looks spent & is hoarse: "hard fought loss... defensively we did some good things, didnt make enough plays offensively"— GoldenBlogs (@GoldenBlogs) November 2, 2013
Though Cal was able to start the game driving for a touchdown, the Golden Bears exhibited the characteristic slow start offensively to the kick-off the second half, which Dykes addressed:
Sonny was asked about slow starts in 1st & 2nd halves: "it's something we've talked about, it's disppointing"— GoldenBlogs (@GoldenBlogs) November 2, 2013
According to QB Jared Goff, our best offensive output since non-conference play may be attributed to better play and cohesion on the offensive line.
Jared re OL: "really starting to come together, best game so far"— GoldenBlogs (@GoldenBlogs) November 2, 2013
