Football: From the press room

  • Cal is headed to either the Emerald Bowl or Poinsettia Bowl. The Emerald Bowl will choose either Cal or USC tomorrow. The team it doesn’t choose goes to the Poinsettia Bowl.
  • Cal was outscored 145-30 in its four Pac-10 losses this season.
  • The prevailing message outside the locker room: “We weren’t ready to play” or “we overlooked Washington.”
  • Syd’Quan Thompson re-sprained his ankle and didn’t play much.

I hear there is snow headed this way so need to get on the road. Cal is holding a press conference at 1:30 tomorrow to announce the bowl selection. I will be flying back in the morning (snow willing) and will be going straight to Berkeley, so may not be able to get on here until the afternoon. But I’ll try to post any news as soon as I can.
