Golden Nuggets: "Big News Over at Rose Bowl Practices for Both California and Ohio State"

Another best case/worst case today from Uncle Ted.  Today we'll put on our "" hats and look at what may be in store for Harbaugh and it pertains to Cal, of course.

Best Case (aka worst case)

After wins over Arizona and Arizona State, the fifth-ranked Cardinal heads to Berkeley for the Big Game, with California eagerly embracing the role of spoiler. Stanford leads 28-14 in the third, but a pair of TD passes from Kevin Riley ties the count with two minutes left. Then Jeff Tedford shocks everyone in the stadium with an on-side kick. The Bears recover. Riley expertly leads his offense to the Stanford 10-yard line, and Giorgio Tavecchio lines up for the chip-shot winner. 

Stanford blocks the kick. Chris Owusu picks up the ball and runs it the other way for the game-winning score. "D'oh," is the one-word column on California Golden Blogs that night. 

Worst Case (Best case or best case?)

A Big Game in Berkeley without Luck is not a good thing for Stanford. California rolls 38-17. Luck again isn't available for the finale vs. Oregon State, and the Beavers drop the Cardinal to 6-6 on the year. 

Luck returns to lead the Cardinal to a victory over Temple in the Eagle Bank Bowl, but it's hardly a day of celebration when Harbaugh announces he's headed to Michigan. 

That's big news over at Rose Bowl practices for both California and Ohio State. 

After the jump fans have the chance to put gameday photos on billboards, the Daily Cal compares Cal football to the Cleveland Cavs, and Natalie Coughlin talks about how coach Teri McKeever helped mold her into the athlete she is today.
