What happened yesterday at Saturday's Practice!
I understand that it can be sometimes tough to wade through 100ish comments to find out what happened at these practices. There are so many that it can be tough to remember what happened where. So, it's good to have these recap posts just to tie everything together in a nice little bouquet!
But I wasn't actually at the practice yesterday. I was at the one last Saturday (and I'll go to the one next Saturday). But I decided to garden yesterday instead. The weather is finally starting to turn and it's important to prepare things for plantings in April. First, I started by organizing my drip system, no wait, this isn't a recap of my gardening, this is a recap of Cal football. I forget sometimes. I know how much people just LOVE to read about drip systems! But many I should hand water instead?!??! SO MANY OPTIONS! But let's never use a read option ever again.
Let's look at some videos from the Cal Football Twitter account. Bryce Treggs:
Highlights of the scrimmage itself:
Cal Athletics is putting out some great stuff. They've really upped their social media game. And they must have some really amazing water systems for Memorial Stadium. I bet I could learn a lot from them about that!
They also have their official story out on the scrimmage. Here is an excerpt, but you can read it in full here:

SELECTED COMMENTS FROM POST-GAME MEDIA SESSION
Head coach Sonny Dykes, quarterbacks Austin Hinder and Zach Kline, and wide receiver Bryce Treggs were among the group that talked to the media after Saturday's workout. Here's some of what each had to say.
On whether any of the quarterbacks separated themselves from today
"I don't think so, not based on what I saw. We'll double check our work, but it looked like to me they all did some good things, kind of more of the same. They just keep working harder and getting more comfortable. It seems like every day they're starting to get a little bit of a better sense of timing and more comfortable with their receivers."
On the team's offense
"It's certainly a work in progress, but it's come a long way. When the offense got the tempo going today, they really played at a high level and when the tempo dragged then they dragged a little bit. That's typical, and that's not anything that hasn't been an experience in the past. When they're playing fast and they get the defense on its heels a little bit the offense can be pretty tough."
Additionally for me, we have some amazing readers. You guys are awesome! Keep on giving all the info.
Here is what Bearly Legal had to say:
Some great thoughts in there. Valued Reader AirRaidUK also had this to say:
If you want to see some photos, valued reader MrRollins put up a gallery of hundreds of them. I cannot figure out how to embed them here, but you can click on the link and head over.

For those of you keeping track, all 3 QBs have scored, and all 3 QBs have had one non scoring drive.— Nam Le (@OneLifeOneMic) March 16, 2013
Triple option out of the diamond. Pitched to Lasco.— Nam Le (@OneLifeOneMic) March 16, 2013
Again, Boehm and Hinder are NOT in QB jerseys— Nam Le (@OneLifeOneMic) March 16, 2013
I'm not reading too much into the Boehm/Hinder thing yet. They'll play WR today with the guys missing (Piatt, etc)..(1/2)— Nam Le (@OneLifeOneMic) March 16, 2013
(2/2) I do think it means Hinder might be a little behind.— Nam Le (@OneLifeOneMic) March 16, 2013
So, there you go. A lot to investigate, a lot to learn. And I have some hose bibs I need clean! GO BEARS!
