    JO, can you explain this?

    “Neuheisel curiously called timeouts after each of the Bears’ three kneeldowns in the final seconds, forcing Cal to run a handful of running plays.”

    Were they “practicing” timeouts?

    Hey Disc, I was just talking to a friend from the East Coast about the game, and he mentioned Slick Rick was annoyed that Riley threw for a TD, when the game was already decided. Perhaps, we should add another adjective to his name. Slick Poor-Sport Rick.

    Go Bears!

    If that’s true, then cry me a river, Slick Rick. When you have an offense like Cal’s that needs work, you work on it. It’s not like Cal put up 60+. And if I recall, the offense only had 2 TDs and 2 field goals at that point, the defense put up the other 14. Maybe he should have just had Forcier take a knee and we could have ended the game even quicker?
