Football: Monday quick hit

Cal wrapped up training camp today with its second and final live practice. Jeff Tedford says he won’t reveal the depth chart until Thursday. The team won’t practice Tuesday, but it will hold its annual “Football Olympics,” where the players engage in fun activities on the field (one event, for instance, is a competition where offensive and defensive linemen attempt to receive a punt).

The players then will be off Wednesday, at which time the coaching staff will really dive into evaluating personnel and determine the depth chart.

One of the positions with suspense is cornerback. I’m hearing more and more lately that Marc Anthony is having a tremendous camp. He’s lined up with the 1s a lot more recently and appears to be right there with Darian Hagan, Steve Williams and Bryant Nnabufie. I believe Hagan will earn one of the starting spots. But I’m starting to think Anthony could earn the starting nod over Williams, who appeared to be in line for a starting role through most of  camp. Williams obviously is still a strong candidate to start, but don’t be shocked if it’s Anthony.

Tefdord said he needed to watch the tape before concluding if anything that happened today solidified the depth chart. But he did continue to say that “as of right now,” freshman Keenan Allen is a starter. It’s hard to imagine that would have changed after today. Tedford also said that true freshman Dave Wilkerson and Nick Forbes are backups, meaning it looks as though Keith Browner will indeed start at weakside linebacker.

More to come…

    Please, please tell us the other events in the “Football Olympics”…as well as a recap of the competition! Sounds hilarious and good for team-building.

    How did the team come out of camp health wise?
    Camps over, lets get ready to rumble.
    Go Bears!!!

  • Mustang Man

    Bring back Delgado, Gregory, Littlejohn, and Alamar, pair those terrible coaches with some of the losers still on the Staff, and Tedford can put on his own Special Olympics.
