DeAndre Coleman at the Senior Bowl, discusses why Cal had so many early entrees

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Take it for what it's worth.

In case you wanted something to watch this afternoon that was mildly Cal football related, DeAndre Coleman is taking part in the Senior Bowl this afternoon. The event takes place at 1 pm PT, 4 pm ET on NFL Network.

How has Coleman been stacking up this week? Reviews are mostly good, and sometimes entertaining.

Coleman had a solid career at Cal. Cameron Jordan, Trevor Guyton and Ernest Owusu were in front of him when he first started getting playing time, and with Cal playing mostly a 3-4 during his time here there wasn't much time for him to get into the rotation until his final two seasons. Coleman racked up 39 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and two sacks his senior season (his junior stats were around 44 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks) and was probably Cal's most consistent player on a very inconsistent defense.

Also, if you want an unofficial reason as to why Cal had so many defections...

It's not the worst thing in the world. Coaching changes have happened. That could explain Khairi Fortt and Kameron Jackson and Vei Moala all deciding to turn pro (Moala is a little curious, since he didn't declare until AFTER Barry Sacks was let go). And of course Chris McCain never got along with anyone. As for the offense, Brendan Bigelow never really played that well and Richard Rodgers was not a fit as a big wide receiver in these schemes, so that makes some sense too.

The coaches and players didn't get along, and now a lot of them are gone from both sides with Barry Sacks and Randy Stewart out and who knows what with Buh. Now that the worst parts of football regime change seem to be done with, hopefully that'll result in more improved chemistry in the locker room.
