Cal football: Follett’s day gets better

Zack Follett recorded a vertical jump of 37 inches at the NFL combine today, which was tied for the best mark among linebackers. Follett matched the jumps of Wake Forest’s Aaron Curry and Ohio State’s Marcus Freeman.
Cal’s Worrell Williams did well in the vertical jump as well, leaping 35 inches to tie for seventh overall among linebackers.
Defensive end Rulon Davis hasn’t shown up among the leaders in any drill.

    Here’s a good website to see combine results:

    Rulon ran a 4.94 40-yard.
    Felder ran a 4.80 40
    Follet ran a 4.75 40
    WWilliams ran a 4.84 40.

    Rulon’s a legit 6’5″, while WW comes in at 5’10. Both Felder and Follet come in at 6’2″

    I’m very glad to see the U$C linebackers’ marks. With all of that talent, one must ask why have no national championships been coming? Moreover, given that ol’ Petey is the highest paid university employee in the country, one would think that there would be a continuous stream of national championships, but instead it is a continuous stream of chokes, including the single greatest choke job ever.

    Yes, U$C has made a lot of money through its football factory since Petey showed up, but, unless this is all just a business enterprise, seems to me that U$C is getting ripped off. Personally, if I had wasted 4 years of my life and 100k to become a U$C “graduate,” I would get out my crayons and scrawl out a letter of protest.

    Isn’t this a CAL FOOTBALL BLOG? What’s with the sc douchery? What a shame.

    Just remember Stanford at your LA Coliseum in 2007. You all-time choke! Your pretty boy coach Petey has never recovered. You can’t get to a bowl game more than 20 miles from the USC campus. Rose Bowl or not, USC can’t play an entire season with all that highly regarded talent without stepping on its own pecker against much weaker teams. Your team was embarrassed against Oregon State last year. Absolutely got the shit kicked out of it, even when 3rd and long OSU ran right down your throat. What did LB Ray do? Pussed out with a sore knee when his team needed him most. CHOKE!!

    humoring the douche by responding isn’t going to help.

    CBear, the guy is unemployed and posts here no matter what, so you might as well have some fun with him. However, he’s been posting here less now that Pete Carroll has hired him to pick up his dog droppings. Pete, are you going to hire him to scrub your toilets clean? That should keep him busy after the burrito you ate last night.

    Gee Moron — how about next you post your grades at CalStateDavis law school — you know, the grades that led to you earning a degre….oh, that’s right.

    Remember to take your meds.
