Can’t wait for Saturday to see if the Memorial Stadium crowd can generate even half the energy it did against Oregon. Certainly, it would be reasonable to see somewhat of a drop off. We’re probably looking at 12,000 less fans to start. However, this is exactly the kind of game where a team would need a huge lift early from the crowd. It is kind of a themeless game in that Cal has dominated the Huskies recently, and Washington just lost its starting quarterback. The Bears could come out a bit flat. That’s when a crowd can put a huge charge into the players by rocking the joint early in the game and not waiting until the fourth quarter. The crowd only gets three more chances this season to make a difference.
