The California Golden Bears are gong to return to the field in just under a month. Spring practice will start near the beginning of March, with a good portion of them open to the public. All of the open spring practices will be on weekday afternoons up to the actual Cal spring day.
Also of note, for those who want to see Jared Goff at Memorial Stadium one last time, they'll likely get their chance Friday March 18th at Cal's Pro Day. Expect seniors like Daniel Lasco, Bryce Treggs, Trevor Davis, Darius Powe, Maurice Harris, Kyle Kragen and more to participate there.
Spring game comes April 16th at 11 a.m. on the Pac-12 Networks. Hopefully this will be the year Cal will have enough players to have a healthy contest. The past few seasons have just featured a lot of scrimmaging due to lack of able and healthy bodies. Here's the full schedule.

"We are excited to share with our fans what we are doing in the offseason to prepare for the 2016 campaign," head coach Sonny Dykes said. "College football games are not only won on Saturdays in the fall but with the work put in during the offseason. The work we did to prepare for the 2015 season led to much of the success we enjoyed. We're excited for the upcoming spring practices and using them to help continue the upward trajectory of our football program."
