Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

The two-time ESPNU Blogger Throwdown Champion takes on one of the greatest deep-threat receivers in Cal football history.

If you haven't seen this yet, then shame on you. Stop everything and watch it. If you have seen it, watch it again. It is worth the time.

TheScientist019: The Two-Time Blogger Throwdown Champion! Dr. Periodic Table himself! During the 2012 football season, our own Scott Chong appeared on the nationally televised program ESPN Unite to face-off in a verbal slugfest with bloggers representing Stanfurd and Oregon State in anticipation of the teams meeting on the gridiron. While our team came pretty darn close to having their butts literally handed to them in both contests, Chong was more than able to hold his own, being named the winner of both debates.

Chong's performance exemplifies the balance I love about the University of California. In the same institution, you have the number one public university in the world combined with several programs with excellence in athletics. Similarly, Chong demonstrated not just a high football IQ with formation match-ups and knowledge of our personnel, but he combined it with an immensely entertaining sense of humor and a biting wit.

And don't forget—the 2-4-5 Nickel.

(13) Wesley Walker

Wesley Walker Interview (via sportsradiony)

Via Tightwad Hill

No receiver in the history of college football averaged more yards per catch than Wesley Walker. He gained an average of more than 25 yards every time he hauled in a pass.

Walker caught only 86 passes in his time at Cal, but he made those catches count. No receiver in school history changed the complexion of a game more than Walker, whose 9.5 sprinter's speed stressed opposing secondaries on every down. His ability to catch the deep ball opened the rest of the field up for Cal receivers Steve Rivera and George Freitas.

Walker had more than 100 yards receiving on eight separate occasions, including a record 289-yard 3-touchdown performance against San Jose State in his senior season. He holds the Cal record for longest TD reception with an 88 yard score from Joe Roth against Georgia in 1976. Walker also occasionally returned kicks and punts for the Golden Bears, and finished his career with 3,085 all-purpose yards.

Walker was drafted in the 2nd round by the New York Jets in 1977, and made two Pro Bowls during a 12-year career.

Wesley Walker was one of the all-time great speed burners. He just blew by db's and Joe hit Wesley on an amazing number of long-bomb TD's. The ‘75 co-Pac 8 Championship Team was the most balanced, most productive, and most amazing Cal offense I have seen in my 50 years of going to Cal games.
