    Good for Nate. Whatever you think about him, he was prepared to come in and got us the win.

    Ducks by 14…that’s points not sacks on Riley and Longshore. Bear fans will be in their booing mode by the 1st Q.

    Good call, moron. Good call.

  • golden bear

    Now is when Moroncsarecoming goes into hibernation.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    BTW those unis are the laughingstock of college football. And to think that I and others thought those cupcake Ducks had the worst looking unis.

  • Lawrence

    You were wrong, More. Your uniform as a Cal obsessed USC fan is the worst uni.

  • milo

    Cal won…that’s what important.

  • rhsin7

    nate played well for having to come right off the bench. Those yellow unis looked pretty sick if you ask me

    Why are you obsessing over me and not watching Texas Tech? Oh I know why. 45-31 Texas Tech wins the 2004 Holiday Bowl against a bunch of overrated cupcakes who thought they should have been in the Rose Bowl.

  • MikeD

    @MoreNCsarecoming = a troll and clearly an obsessed closet bear fan


  • golden bear

    What about the scout boards, Moron? You don’t seem to be answering. Are the rumours true? Banned at your own SC Board again? First WeARESC and now the SC Scout board? Banned at both?

    Gee, pretty say when your own fans punk you.

  • NateHater 2096

    Way to go Nate! You played a great game and have won more games than any Cal QB in 50 years (according to the Cupper on KGO).

    I still want to see Riley start, but Nate played a great game in the rain.

    Redemption from last year’s SC rain game!

  • golden bear

    Why aren’t you watching the Stanford game, Moron? Oh I know why.

  • Cal fan

    You would think an SC fan would have something better to do than obsess about Cal. I don’t think about anyone other than our next opponent. Maybe this MorSC thing has a little “complex” if you know what I mean.
    Since our next opponent is SC, it’s SC week. Hey moron, Cal has nothing to lose going down there, if they win they will be hero’s if they lose all of college football expects SC to win every game anyway. Cal’s 4-1 heading to LA with nothing to lose. Sorry about that one. Obsess much?

  • toparchitect

    Just back from Berkely.

    Like I said, go suck you thumb in tremble, Mor*)*&.
    I told you the Bear D# will proof you wrong.

    Even the storm couldn’t stop the 66000 bear fans’ cheer for the Bears D# that tear the duck offense apart in the first half and contol the game the rest of the way.

    Hey, why not, two good QBs better than one in this case. One down, the second one fire up and gave the bear a win.

    Now you troll lover, go some where else and kiss their ass or asses, you are not welcome here. You are in the wrong place, you are in the Bear Den.

    Go Bears! take down the troll next week.

  • 2x Golden

    Why does anyone bother to respond to MoreNcs? If you just ignore it it will go away. Boycott it and it will get bored.

  • OldBearsFan

    So, the Trolljan “moronsarecoming” thinks everyone’s “obsessing” over him, does he? HE WISHES! Only a true mental midget would annoy everyone, then when they put him down claim their “obsessing” about him! Hahahahahaha… quit it, Trolljan, you’re killing us! Get a life, will ya? Go back under your bridge and scare little old ladies. By the way, I believe you predicted the Ducks by 14? And as for “those unis being the lauging stock of college football,” have you looked in a mirror lately?

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    BTW UCB fans should rejoice twiceover today. Not only did you beat the Ducks a bunch of cupcakes but today Washington State just broke your 2001 record for the most points given up in a season. Some of us thought you would hold that record of 333 points for a long long time.

  • golden bear

    Well, there’s the cupcake call. And he already claimed the refs did it — so boring old Moron is the same. And also the same? No word on the scout boards.

    Avoiding what ruins his self-esteem. That’s our Moron!

  • GoBeerz

    Ahhh MoreNCs is back. Hey buddy! Which of you thought that record would stand for a long time? Introduce me.
    So you’re that guy. The guy who was a bit geeky in High School…everyone thought you were a dork, you may have even been partially likeable, but then you went to SUC and then you found a purpose to your mediocre life. SUC was probably crap when you were there, but you live vicariously through your football team. I’d like to meet your classmates and hear what they have to say about you. The sad thing is, at least USC plays with class, you sadly have none.

  • Pug

    I’ve wanted to see Kevin Riley start, but it sure is good to have an experienced veteran like Nate Longshore in case he’s needed, like yesterday.

    Nate makes some real nice throws. If he just didn’t have such a penchant for throwing untimely pick sixes he’d be a great quarterback.

  • Kyle

    First off huge win by the bears!! Sets up big showdown in the coliseum next weekend. This team plays with more heart and desire than anyother in years past.

    Second off MoreNCsarecoming shut up. You run your mouth predicting a 14 pt duck win and then when you get punched in the mouth by the bears you start talking about the uniforms, the 2004 game against TT, and the 2001 team??

    You idiot 2004 when the bears did get screwed out of the rose bowl they were the 4th best team in the country. 2001??? Are you kidding me. You bring up 2001?? Tom Holmoe?? Hahahaha not even worth arguing. If your going to talk bring up something relevant. You look pathetic searching for things to bring up.

    Roll on you bears

  • SamoBear

    Circa 2004 and 2006, with the Rose Bowl on the line, we again travel to the Coliseum to play the factory.

    Will we be able to make plays in the second half of this game after the so-called Pete Carroll “adjustment factor?”

    SC D has allowed 13 points in the second half of all games they have played. Amazing.

    Well need to jump out to an early lead and then hold on for dear life. Maybe, Tedford should consider Longshore to start first half–Riley the second.

    Go Bears!

  • Calzephyr

    Yes, good for Nate. Riley is the man but Nate is a classy back-up. And good for the offensive line – not a bad game. The predictions were dire.

    I like the all-gold look (yeah, a swarm of bees).

    I can’t believe the field doesn’t have a real drainage system. I remember Berkeley rains very well.

    If the Bears can visit U$C and knock some people on their butts and have fun it could be a helluva game. They are a bunch of princesses, highly talented, but they could be had. It’s hard not to like Pete Carroll but I hope he chews his gum real hard next Saturday.

  • Jan K Oski

    A mark of a very good team? You fumble your way to victory! This team has heart, and they truly control their own destiny. It will be tough to win against the Toejams, but bigger upsets have been made.

    Game balls go to the defensive front 3, Mohamed, Tucker, Riley (for rallying the team, even though he didn’t know where he was), Longshore and Tedford. Why Tedford? Did anyone else notice 4 defensive rushers after Tedford was frustrated with the defense not being set and a calling a late time-out? It looks like his new role fits him just fine.

    Go Bears!

  • Jethro

    I’ve never seen FieldTurf collect water like that. There’s almost two inches of rubber and sand over concrete. The 3 Stooges could have designed the drainage system better.

    I loved it when Follet ran into the offensive huddle after the muffed punt recovery and got those guys fired up.

  • Golden Bear


    Be careful what you ask for, Moron.
