Super Bowl XLVIII


Time: 3:30 PM Kickoff

Unless you have been living underneath a rock, today is Super Bowl Sunday.

Three Golden Bears will be in uniform for tonight's "big game" (not to be confused with the Big Game that is played between Cal and Stanfurd). Marshawn Lynch and Brandon Mebane are starters for the Seattle Seahawks. C.J. Anderson is a bit further down the RB depth chart for the Denver Broncos.

Clearly, should the Seahawks win today, it is due to the great play of RB Lynch and DT Mebane and in spite of the presence of former 'Furd players in CB Richard Sherman and WR Doug Baldwin (not to mention former USC head coach Pete Carroll). For the Denver Broncos, C.J. Anderson must overcome the presence of defensive tackle and 'Furd alum in Sione Fua. Therefore, both teams share the same Cal-'Furd number of 0 on their rosters.

Chat about the game here. Does the players actually get to say their college on the Fox broadcast?

For those who watches the Super Bowl for the commercials, feel free to talk about those here as well.
