Golden Nuggets: Rams Publish an Extensive Essay on Jared Goff

Just because it is summer doesn’t mean we can’t keep giving out awards to Cal student-athletes!

Greetings from Bulgaria!


  • (Pro): Jared Goff, due to his debut 1-11 season at Cal, is in a familiar position now trying to get the Rams back to glory after a tough first season. Note this is a LONG essay but is worth the read. It has quotes from his parents, and an extensive look at his time at Marin Catholic and Cal.

“I think there were a lot of things we went through and had to learn from and ultimately, it was changing the culture, and changing the expectation in the building,” Jared says. “And I was a part of that but I wasn’t the only part of that — there were a bunch of guys there with me that were pulling their weight as well. And I’m proud to say I was a part of it but by no means was I the only person behind that. It was a group effort.”

“No team has ever gone 1-11 and then to a bowl game the next year in college football. And they could’ve done that. There were a couple of games that they probably could have won [but] didn’t,” Jerry says. “They ended up 5-8, and then yeah, they moved on.

Most of these are old and I missed them last time, or they were launched just as I finished the last GN.
