The greatest Cal quarterback of the last decade.......Goes up against perhaps the greatest modern eSports player of his time!

(2) Jared Goff

boomtho: My favorite Goff memory was his clutch 4th down conversion at UW (which I watched from the third row - 'sup Husky fans!). The fact that he was initially stopped and had to make a spinning second effort to convert made it all the more sweet.

My second favorite Goff memory was him leading the charge down 21 against ASU. He was so freaking good that game - continually picking apart the blitz, moving around in the pocket, making multiple reads - I think that game really showcased the best of Jared Goff.

My third favorite memory was more of a season long trend - just how genuinely happy he seemed to be out there with his teammates playing for Cal.

A.W Johnston: Every single back shoulder fade he threw, there was not a single person in college who threw that pass better this year. I might jump on Boomtho's comment and say the game clinching first down against Washington. His momentum was stopped and he battled his way to getting that first down. Huge play ending an awful streak.

Leland Wong: That Texas face tho.

Also, so many gutsy runs, "garbage-can drill" touchdowns, and his constant pocket presence to evade pressure and deliver perfect passes downfield.

Suppy is a Zerg player from the United States who obtained regional success in Brood War. He is currently a college student at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the head coordinator and ace for the school's Collegiate StarLeague team.

In 2007, then known as Superiorwolf, Suppy took up commentating and became the first YouTube commentator for Brood War.[1] However, his lack of knowledge and high-pitched voice were highly ridiculed,[2] inciting several others to take up commentating, including Klazart, Diggity, and moletrap. He has a colorful history on TeamLiquid for being known as the prepubescent commentator. He participated in the TeamLiquid Attack #1 and #2, taking out iNcontroL and winning the mousepad award,[3] then losing to IdrA in the subsequent TeamLiquid Attack.[4] During the TeamLiquid Attacks, he was affectionately referred to as "not your average wolf", "Inferiorwolf", "Superiorerwolf", etc. For these reasons, his TLPD picture is one of a young boy in a wolf costume.[5]

Suppy has attended many local LANs since 2007, including UC Berkeley AAA's LAN B4 Time. In 2009, during an internship at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, Suppy organized his first LAN, the Washington D.C. Area LAN #1. The community at Washington D.C. was extremely enthusiastic and has been thriving ever since, going on to become one of the strongest StarCraft communities in the United States today. Thereafter, Suppy began to organize Bay Area TeamLiquid LANs (BATLLs) in Berkeley, California. The 9th BATLL was held in February 2012.

On October 20, 2013, Evil Geniuses announced that Suppy had committed full-time to professional StarCraft for the next year.
