Two days after not finishing their chances in a season opening loss, No. 18 California responded in the grandest of fashions by netting five times - including the first career hat trick by Arielle Ship - to earn a 5-1 win against Hawaii at the Waipi'o Peninsula Stadium in the Outrigger Resorts Classic.


The 2015 Cal Volleyball Team went public for the first time Saturday, playing three sets in its annual Blue & Gold Scrimmage at Haas Pavilion.

Aaron Rodgers says it's tough to lose Jordy Nelson in 'meaningless game'

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is clearly not a fan of preseason games based on his comments following Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Rodgers said it was difficult to "lose a guy over a meaningless game" following an injury to his teammate Jordy Nelson, who reportedly suffered a torn ACL on the Packers' first drive.

Eagles extend Mychal Kendricks

The Eagles are making a commitment to linebacker Mychal Kendricks.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Kendricks has signed a new contract with the Eagles. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that it's a four-year, $29 million contract extension with $16.4 million guaranteed.


Scout: Malik McMorris: Strength of the Heart

Malik McMorris is strong. Strong enough to hurl a discus over 194 feet, and a 12-pound shot put over 60 feet. Despite being a sub-six-foot 300-pounder, he was plenty strong enough to bully and punish opposing offensive tackles while earning back-to-back Co-Defensive Player of the Year awards in the Trinity League - arguably the top high school football league in California - while playing defensive end for Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei.

He was strong enough to make it into Berkeley on his own, academically. He was strong enough to walk on at Cal, and to work out the entire summer on his own to get ready for fall camp.

"College is a little different with the scheme, but I did my best, which is all you can ask for, especially for a naïve, incoming freshman like myself," he laughed, after his first day of camp. "It's just all about getting better each day."
