No winning record. No bowl. No Axe.

The California Golden Bears put up a good fight in the face of evil/the Stanfurd Cardinal... or at least we did for the first half. Ultimately, the Furdies had the depth to continue executing while the Bears ran out of gas, allowing Furd to walk away with the 45–31 win and the Axe.

Meanwhile, the loss guarantees that Cal will end the season with a losing record and likely bowl-less (unless exceptions are made for 5–7 teams and Cal beats UC Los Angeles next week).

Here's the thread for your initial reactions and to grade Cal's performance.
