Football: New roster released, doesn’t include Whiteside

What is presumably Cal’s training camp roster is now up on calbears.com and it does not include linebacker Cecil Whiteside. This suggests that Whiteside is indeed ineligible to play this season. I don’t have this completely confirmed, but it appears Whiteside likely will grayshirt and enroll at Cal in the spring semester. That means his athletic clock won’t start ticking until next season.

  1. at least he’s committed to getting his act together, and hasn’t bailed on the bears. i hope he gets all the support he needs. he’s going to be a beast next year.

  2. Let’s hope Mr Whiteside still wants to face the academic challenges of UC-Berkeley.

  3. this is why they created Sociology 3 with Harry Edwards.

  4. Rollonubear, your are wise.

    Remember Harry’s Sociology of Sport from the 80’s? I’ll never forget Harry’s laugh when asked to comment on why Chris Mullin received Player-of-the-Year over Patrick Ewing.

    Harry “ameliorate and assuage” Edwards was a classic.

  5. @ Rollonubears,
    @ Bear 707,

    Don’t forget “African American Film Studies” with Professor Albert Johnson…a swell gentleman, may he rest in peace.

  6. And don’t forget DECAL classes! Nothing like getting 4 units for The Films of Stanley Kubrick, held weekly at Kips.

  7. If Whiteside gets his academic qualifications in order, I’m going to be a HUGE fan!!!
