    THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. TEDFORD SHOULD BE FIRED FOR THIS!!! WHY CAN’T CAL FIND A DECENT SCHOLARSHIP KICKER???!!? GET RID OF ONE OF THOSE OVERRATED QBs! OUR PLAYBOOK IS TOO COMPLICATED!!! MARSHALL NEEDS TO BE FIRED! BARBOUR NEEDS TO GO!

    Goodbye, Shane.

    Bobby, what “THIS” are you referring to? Are you saying that Tedford should be fired for having five players make the first and second Pac-10 All-Academic teams? That’s ridiculous. It’s news like this that makes me proud to be a Cal fan no matter what is happening on the field.

    Hi MamaBear, my post was facetious. I was making fun of a certain sub-set of posters on this blog who find a way to put a negative spin on any post regarding Cal football, regardless of the topic.

    I think it’s great that we have players on the All-Academic team, and also I enjoy seeing our APR rankings be consistently high. Go bears!

    Are you sure you were being facetious? Cal had 1 first-team all-Pac 10. 8 other Pac-10 schools had two or more. Washington had only 1. U$C had none. Not entirely sure that is the best we can do.

    Here is the full first-team list:

    Eric, thanks for proving my point

    GO bears!

  • MamaBear07

    Well, that’s a relief, Bobby! It was so crazy I had to ask. I dislike the negative spinning on everything as well but haven’t really tracked the who’s who of them. I also generally ignore them – but your post was too silly to let go without a response! Sad to say but it’s true that your point was proven…. That didn’t take long. GO BEARS!

    So…we ok with 8 of 10 Pac-10 teams having more academic all-americans? Is that the point? Sorry, that suggests pretty low expectations. I thought we were supposed to be incredibly proud of our academics. If Paul Wulff is able to get 7 of his players to be first-team all-academic, I am certainly going to give him tremendous respect notwithstanding a very poor on-field performance. Even Oregon – who many, many posters criticize as being paid by Nike and having no student-atheletes – has more. You’re perfectly cool with that, eh?
