Leftovers

Here are some leftover notes from the Oregon game:

–Much has been made about Cal’s quick-strike offense this season. Well, the scoring drive that ended up as a field goal in the second quarter took 5:34, the longest drive of the season.
–Wide receiver Robert Jordan is closing in on the school record for catches in consecutive games. It’s now up to 35, one short of the all-time mark.
–Wide receiver DeSean Jackson moved into the top 10 on Cal’s all-time list for career receptions with 125 and quarterback Nate Longshore broke into the top 10 on the Bears’ career touchdown passes list with 31…
–Running back Justin Forsett has scored a touchdown in six straight games, dating back to last season’s Holiday Bowl.

    JO–Don’t you suppose that Tedford was trying to control the clock as much as possible and, accordingly, pushed for longer play/scoring drives?

    At first, I was surprised it was taking so long to find the endzone (or uprights). Part of that was, of course, a good Oregon defense slowing us down; but, it also seemed like our typical grinding out the yards was a little slower than usual. That’s got to be some of Tedford’s play strategy, yes?

    wonder whether east bay prep football stars are re-thinking the oregon “connection”….seems a little sour in recent years.
