Back from a couple days off after the game to celebrate Christmas. I hope everyone had a good holiday.
In case you missed it, here is my season review, mostly examining where the Bears go from here after their second disappointing season in the past three. Also, columnist Gary Peterson says the 2009 season puts some pressure on coach Jeff Tedford.
The plan here at BearTalk for the immediate future is that I will be on partial comp time this week, meaning my posts might be less frequent than usual. But I still do have a couple things brewing and will definitley have a presence here and there. In the near term, there will be storylines to follow. Most notably, recruiting. Signing day is just over a month away and the Bears hope to keep their promising recruiting season going. It will be interesting to see if the way the season ended will turn off any potential recruits.
Also, this is the time of year when there are changes to a coaching staff, so if there are going to be any changes to Cal’s staff for 2010, expect to hear about them sooner rather than later. You also never know about personnel movement — a player quitting, transferring, or somebody else transferring in, etc.
One other thing: Don’t forget that we will once again be bypassing a live chat this week but will have a week from Thursday, on Jan. 7. That can serve as a season wrap and also look ahead to the future.
