Football: Thanksgiving weekend

Just a reminder of the importance of tonight’s Oregon-Oregon State game. If OSU wins and Cal beats Washington next Saturday, the Bears likely are headed to the Holiday Bowl. If Oregon wins, Cal likely ends up in the Emerald Bowl, but the Sun Bowl also would be a possibility. The OSU-Oregon game starts at 4 p.m.

The Bears have been off since Wednesday morning. They will reconvene tomorrow night. It will be more than just their usual conditioning Sunday night practice because there is no game this weekend.

    Anyone know if Marvin Jones was redshirted this yr? I know he played in a few games to start the yr, but haven’t seen him play since sept…


    JO, if the BEARS go to the EMERALD BOWL I wonder if they’ll stay in San Francisco as the Pac-10 team typically does or because they’re only a skip away just prepare in Berkeley???

    NY, Marvin Jones will be blue-shirting for the year…

    Go BEARS!

    Beat them terps!

  • Uhh

    We don’t want to play the Terps again this year since we’ll play them early in Berkeley next year. Miami or Virginia seem likely. I’d love either of those games.

    Cal fans should pray that the Sun Bowl is not a possibility. I read last week that Rutgers is under strong consideration as the opponent in that bowl. That would conjure up memories of 2001, when an 0-10 Cal team barely beat an 0-10 Rutgers team in the last game of the season. Rutgers has been pretty crummy this year, getting bowl eligible by beating up on juggernauts like Army. Emerald or bust!

    Here is my bowl estimations based on what I found and if the likely outcome of sc beating UCLA and CAL beating UW next week…

    Rose= u$c vs. Penn State
    Holiday= Oregon vs. Oklahoma State
    Sun= OSU vs. Notre Dame or Missouri
    Vegas= Cal vs. TCU OR Arizona vs. TCU
    Emerald= Arizona vs. Florida State OR Cal vs. Florida St
    Hawaii= (If ASU wins on Sat.) ASU vs. Hawaii

    **Emerald said they would trade for CAL if they are in position for the Vegas bowl**

  • Big D

    I would rather play Florida State than TCU. So at this point, I hope it is the Emerald Bowl.
