Darius Powe Commitment Kicks Off Cal's Recruiting Weekend

5

Joining a star-studded group of recruits, including already-committed receiver and friend Bryce Treggs, Powe arrived on campus yesterday with Treggs and fellow receiver Christ Harper, who he travelled up from Southern California with. And soon after arriving, Powe was ready to go public with the decision he'd made earlier this week to commit to Cal. "I love the education and how it's all like a big family at Cal," said Powe. "And I like and trust the coaches and feel comfortable with them and the program. Having guys like Bryce and Todd (Cal defensiive end and former Lakewood teammate Todd Barr) there makes it that much better."

FSU loses key defensive player to injury

Fresno State starting safety Phillip Thomas out 8-12 weeks to season after breaking his leg last night at practice. Bulldog fans say Thomas is probably their best defensive player. http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=164&f=1686&t=7850998

Kenneth Walker commits to Cal

10

ATH Kenneth Walker (Richmond, Calif./Kennedy) committed to his longtime leader and will play receiver for California. Walker nearly committed to Cal at The Opening last July but wanted to wait until he took the ACT first. The Bears have been a heavy leader for the last year and it always seemed like just a matter of time before Walker pulled the trigger. "I really liked everything about Cal," Walker said. "I like the offense a lot, it's receiver friendly and you can make a lot of plays there. I like the coaches a lot and especially Coach [Jeff] Tedford. The depth chart is great and Cal really needs receivers right now.

Depth Chart Update: Bridgford #2 QB, Deboskie-Johnson #2 RB

It looks as though freshman running back Brendan Bigelow likely will redshirt. Cal doesn’t have to make that decision now, and there’s always the possibility he could come on early in the season as he continues to adjust. But it looks as though the rust of not playing last season was too much to overcome for Bigelow. He’s still getting used to playing on his twice-torn up knee and isn’t ready yet, although Tedford said Bigelow is getting better every day. UPDATE: Avinash here. Here's some further details and analysis via SBN Bay Area.

First practice in the books. New RB Brendan Bigelow says he feels faster than before his two knee...

QB Kevin Riley among trio of Lions cuts

10

The roller-coaster career of quarterback Kevin Riley took another dip when he was among three players released by the B.C. Lions before the start of training camp Sunday. One of three QBs who began rookie camp last Thursday, Riley joined first-year receivers Carl Sims of Western Illinois and Chris McClover of Middle Tennessee in the CFL team's first round of deletions.

USC Trojans appeal denied....

47

Wednesday, according to multiple sources inside and outside the university, the final decision of the NCAA's Infractions Appeals Committee was in hand and being reviewed by USC before its Thursday release by the NCAA. And it's not good news for USC football. Despite speculation and media reports that there might be a willingness on the part of the NCAA to listen favorably to a USC appeal that had asked that the 30 scholarships lost over three years with a maximum of 75 allowed and a two-year postseason bowl ban be cut in half, USCFootball.com's sources indicate that USC's appeal has been denied completely.

Pac-10 Secures Rich Deals With Fox and ESPN

3

The Pacific-10 Conference will start its own network on cable television in 2012 but will also sell most of its marquee football and basketball games to Fox and ESPN for about $3 billion over 12 years, more than quadrupling what the two companies have been paying. It is the richest conference deal ever. The Pac-10, which is expected to announce the agreements Wednesday, is following the media model of the Big Ten Conference, which in 2007 created its own network and negotiated a 10-year, $1 billion deal with ESPN. But a critical difference between the conferences’ deals is that the Pac-10 will retain full ownership of its network.

Zach Maynard appears to be Cal's starting quarterback

+

Per Okanes: And now, a training session for aspiring amateur detectives, brought to you by Cal football. The Bears wrapped up spring practice Saturday with a controlled scrimmage at Contra Costa College, and coach Jeff Tedford said afterward that an announcement regarding the quarterback competition is coming soon. In the scrimmage, junior Zach Maynard took every first-team rep. Tedford also spent the spring praising Maynard's performance and potential. Not exactly a tough case to crack. another link from SF Gate... http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/04/30/SPAO1JA72R.DTL

Practice Session #12: Cal's defense keeps the offense scrambling

Jeff Tedford trying to block out critics

1

BERKELEY, Calif. -- California coach Jeff Tedford hears the negative chatter but he's trying not to listen. The operative word there being "trying." He understands why some Golden Bears fans are grumbling, but such talk nonetheless frustrates him. Tedford rebuilt a lousy program and created a high standard to which Cal fans happily became accustomed. Yet over the past few seasons, he has not consistently met that high standard. "All of a sudden, you have an eight-win season and it's not good enough," Tedford said. "Then, all of the sudden, you have a [losing season] and it's, 'Wow, what happened here?'"

Tevin Carter quits football team

35

Whoever wins the job will have one less speedy receiver. Tevin Carter, a redshirt freshman from Los Angeles, has quit the team. Carter didn't ask for a release so he could transfer. "He's finished here, which is unfortunate," Tedford said. "I don't know if he had a passion to play football anymore... he doesn't know if he wants to play football."
