Cal Football Video: Back in Berkeley - Camp Miniseries

+

Hey guys, I'm actually surprised this hasn't been posted here yet. Cal Video has done this BEAUTIFUL episode detailing some of the inner workings of camp, including some interviews and action shots of the players at practice. 11 Minutes long, for those of us that are gasping for football air! I hope this gets aired on the Pac12 Network. Can't wait for the next episode!

Cal Basketball Walk-On DESTROYED SAT's

1

Awesome note here on one of our two walk-ons for this year. Armenian-American Raffi Chalian from Sonora HS (whose uniforms look awesomely similar to ours) scored a 2350 out of 2400 on the SAT's, only getting 50 points deducted from his essay. (Second link: Asbarez - Chalian to Berkeley) What a baller. Literally.

Looks like Ohio State might get off easy with this distraction.

ASU's New Uniforms

19

So i'm sure you guys have seen Wazzu's new unis (if not click here) Here's ASU's new uniforms. Most notably, they got rid of Sparky on the helmets, and put a rather awkward (IMHO) 'ASU' lettering on the sleeves. Reminds me a little too much of USC's, but in all looks pretty aggressive and will unfortunately bode well for their recruiting. What do you guys think? Should we expect new uniforms for us next year?

Big Game Moved to November 20... ANOTHER season without a Big Game finale

2

Uncle Ted shares that the Big Game has been moved to November 20th, thereby shafting us by having us end the season against OREGON STATE. UGH. The reason? Stanfurd wanted it moved from its previous December date because it might interfere with the first week of finals. Because apparently those matter there.

LA Times names Allen Crabbe "the best player in Southern California, if not the state" * Allen Crabbe, Los Angeles Price. The 6-6 Crabbe has become perhaps the best player in Southern California, if not the state. He's averaging 23 points, close to 11 rebounds and has played at such a high level that there are lots of college recruiters wishing he hadn't signed with California in November.* Awesome, can't wait to see Allen in Blue and Gold. GO BEARS!

Looks like Gregg Easterbrook over at ESPN's Page 2 is giving us some scholarly love! "What about the other commonly heard claim -- that "smart schools" can't win in football and men's basketball? Cal, Georgia Tech, Navy, Nebraska, Northwestern, Stanford and TCU -- all academics-first colleges where football players are more likely to attend class -- are on their way to bowl games. " "Reader Natasha Lettis of Oakland, Calif., provides this troika of stories about academics being enforced in the Cal football program: One player gave up his starting position because a class he requires for graduation conflicts with practice; another was suspended for a game for missing class; this article assesses Cal's overall commitment to blending academics and football. Cal's example shows that a football-factory school can enforce academic rules and still have a great season -- Cal finished 8-4 and will face Utah in the Poinsettia Bowl." "Is this autumn some kind of fluke? No. Last year, Boston College, Cal, Georgia Tech, Navy, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Rice, TCU, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest made bowls. " "The field for last season's NCAA men's basketball tournament included Boston College, Butler, Cal, Cornell, Duke, North Carolina, Purdue, UCLA, Villanova and Wake Forest. In the women's tournament, Cal, Dartmouth, Duke, Georgia Tech, Lehigh, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Stanford, TCU, Villanova and Vanderbilt made it."
