  • The Daily Cal has a good wrap-up of Media Day, and the defense scoffs at the notion that Cal is going to have a bad season.

“Personally, I feel like we can win every game,” said star linebacker Evan Weaver. “When you go out there and if you think it’s gonna be a toss up, then you’re gonna lose, so you gotta go out there and be ready to win.”

While the players may not convey tangible team targets to reach this season, there are certainly aspirations that Cal believes it has the skill to tackle.

“We were able to beat the team that played in the Rose Bowl, so we know in our hearts that we deserve to be there. It was the small mistakes that we made during the season that put us behind,” Bynum said.

  • Camryn Bynum doesn’t seem bothered by the Cal defense getting snubbed from the Thorpe Award watchlist, during this video interview with Cal Bears Maven’s Jake Curtis.
