Football: Hughes pays a visit

Former Cal star cornerback Daymeion Hughes paid a visit to Cal’s walkthrough yesterday. Hughes was picked up by the San Diego Chargers a few weeks ago after getting cut by Indianapolis. Chargers won’t be able to attend tonight’s game because San Diego is traveling to Nashville today for Friday’s game at Tennessee.


Football: Greetings from Qualcomm Stadium

The Poinsettia Bowl may not be the highest-profile bowl game, but I’ll bet no bowl game will have nicer weather this year. It is absolutely gorgeous here today. I’m sitting in the open air press box at Qualcomm Stadium and no jacket is required. There is not a cloud in the sky.

The temperature should drop a bit tonight, but it looks like it will be absolutely ideal conditions for a game.

A little less than 90 minutes until kickoff at this point. Not much going on yet. I’ll be back in a bit with any updates. One thing I’ll obviously be on the lookout for is cornerback Syd’Quan Thompson, to see if he is suited up and warming up. My hunch is he will give it a go, start the game,  and see if he can play. If not, he will be replaced without hesitation.
