Looks like Gregg Easterbrook over at ESPN's Page 2 is giving us some scholarly love! "What about the other commonly heard claim -- that "smart schools" can't win in football and men's basketball? Cal, Georgia Tech, Navy, Nebraska, Northwestern, Stanford and TCU -- all academics-first colleges where football players are more likely to attend class -- are on their way to bowl games. " "Reader Natasha Lettis of Oakland, Calif., provides this troika of stories about academics being enforced in the Cal football program: One player gave up his starting position because a class he requires for graduation conflicts with practice; another was suspended for a game for missing class; this article assesses Cal's overall commitment to blending academics and football. Cal's example shows that a football-factory school can enforce academic rules and still have a great season -- Cal finished 8-4 and will face Utah in the Poinsettia Bowl." "Is this autumn some kind of fluke? No. Last year, Boston College, Cal, Georgia Tech, Navy, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Rice, TCU, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest made bowls. " "The field for last season's NCAA men's basketball tournament included Boston College, Butler, Cal, Cornell, Duke, North Carolina, Purdue, UCLA, Villanova and Wake Forest. In the women's tournament, Cal, Dartmouth, Duke, Georgia Tech, Lehigh, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Stanford, TCU, Villanova and Vanderbilt made it."

Cal junior Theo Robertson, who returned this season from surgery on his left hip that sidelined him for the entire 2007-08 campaign, will undergo surgery Friday on his right hip. "It hasn't been nearly as painful as the last one," Robertson said, "so I'm optimistic from all indications from my doctor that I wouldn't be down for nearly as long."

This could explain Theo's struggles down the stretch this year. Also news about Kamp's procedure, Monty's contract, coach's thoughts on Patrick testing the waters, and Tyler Harrison's future.
