Greetings from the Rose Bowl. We’re still about two hours before kickoff but a handful of Cal players are out on the field, including Nate Longshore. He’s playing catch with a team manager. It’s hard to get a gauge on how his ankle is doing because he’s not doing much running around, just practicing stepping and throwing. He doesn’t appear to be in any discomfort.

    How is the weather down there today? Will it be a factor at all? Cloud cover, temp?
    Who did not make the trip south other than Rulon Davis? Anyone else not going to play today? Let us know the crowd size for Cal and UCLA at todays sold out game today to please. Get it done Bears!

    Calfan, as reported, the only players i know for sure that aren’t playing at this point are Tom Schneider and Rulon Davis.
    As for the weather, it’s already pretty warm. It’s supposed to be fairly hot today. Only a couple of clouds in the sky.
