Cal and Missouri in the Sun Bowl is just more evidence that Pac 10 teams get hosed in their bowl matchups. Hard to get fired up to play a team that owns no real quality wins and got beat at home by Baylor. Missouri is in third place in the weak Big 12 north and has been beaten soundly by the good teams in the conference this year: Nebraska, Texas and Okalhoma State.
I am also wondering if any Cal fans are fired up about a trip to El Paso, just across the border from the most violent town in North America.
I think the Ponsietta Bowl is a bit worried about their match up. If $C loses to Arizona, they might end up with a team that gave up a combined 102 points to Stanfurd and Oregon. Who on earth would want to watch that??? LOL!
u$c is an afterthought in the minds of college football fans across the nation, this season. maybe they will figure out how to turn things around and become competitive again. right now, they’re just bringing the Pac10 down.
Let’s assume the Holiday bowl must pick between Cal and USC. Wouldn’t Cal have an advantage because more hotel rooms would likely be sold? Jack Murphy stadium is an easy 2 hour drive for most of the usc fan base.
I would love to attend a bowl game in San Diego, if the Bears can’t beat Washington that’s not going to happen. They have to win one more game to have that chance.
If Bears don’t go Holiday than Sun Bowl is a great option, never been there. If we do not make the Holiday Bowl the Sun Bowl is a traditional solid bowl I’ve always wanted to see Cal play in. The weather is usually pretty darn good too.
$C has been the most overrated team in the country this year. It is a good thing that there are so many other programs on the upswing right now, and that the conference has so many competitive teams right now. $C has really hurt the conference’s reputation this year. The game this weekend in LA has got to be one of the most disappointing matchups in years. I the baby bruins go easy on the “big bad” trojans this weekend.
Oh, there you are Moron. I was wondering when you would climb out from under that rock. I hope you got to see a real team beat Stanford, I was shocked that the Cardinal was held to under 50. Taylor Mays didn’t deserve the Thorpe Award. Perhaps if someone could come up with the “Jack Tatum Cheap Shot Artist Award” then old Taylor would be a shoe in this year.
haven’t really heard anyone talk about the return of matt summers-gavin. i didn’t realize what an essential part of the o-line he was. he made a HUGE difference in the big game, and in each game he’s played. riley and vereen had some serious protection and great holes to run through. keeping the line healthy on both sides makes a big difference for the bears. we’re supposedly stacked with young o-lineman, too. i’m kind of excited about next year. obviously, usc will be a HUGE challenge on the road, but we get most of the real tough ones at home next year, and we have a lot of young talent. receivers are starting to come around nicely. i love the depth at tight end, and riley should be very solid after another year of experience. go bears.
Rumor has it that the turkey pardoned by Pres. Obama in honor of Thanksgiving is a disillusioned fan of the U. of Sleazy Cheaters who has had to make a life for itself trashing Cal football and its fans.
Hey, I am looking forward to seeing the Bruins drive the final nail into the coffin of the biggest collapse in college football history. How about you guys?
