Sometimes, bad things happen to good universities.

Does anyone feel like reliving the 35–22 loss?

Stanford DE Brennan Scarlett misquoted by Daily News staff writer

Original quote that was deleted: "At first, I kind of went, 'Cal guy? Stay away from him,' " Martinez said. "I went to dinner with him. It was cool to see his type of personality. He is a cool guy. He said he'll never go back to Cal and hang out there after football is over." New quote: ""At first, I kind of went, 'Cal guy? Stay away from him,' " Martinez said. "I went to dinner with him. It was cool to see his type of personality. He is a cool guy. In the offseason, he was a hard worker. He was one of those guys always there weight-lifting, doing extra things. He showed us he was here to work and wanted to be the best he can be. When Harrison Phillips went down, Brennan's role jumped up, tremendously. We needed him because of our low depth in the defensive line."

2009 Big Game hero Shane Vereen will attend the 2015 Big Game

"Winning at their place in a game where we had no chance of winning — that was the talk. They were ranked, we weren’t ranked," said Vereen, 26, who rushed for 193 yards and three touchdowns that day. "We got The Axe, and it was awesome. The Giants have a bye this weekend, so Vereen plans to join old college buddies at the game. Talking to Bay Area reporters on a conference call, Vereen said he hopes the current Cal team can experience the feeling that comes with a victory in the Big Game. "That rivalry will go on long after us," he said, "but we’ll have that moment forever when we kind of shocked a lot of people."
