Football: Where Cal stands

Here is a story I wrote for today’s paper, looking at what’s happened to Cal’s program in recent years and where they go from here. Later this week, I will have a more thorough season review and look ahead to the future.

    I think everyone who a comment about Cal’s offense woes have a point!!!!!!!HERES MY POINT CAL HAS GOOD TALENT AND RECRUIT WELL BUT THEY HAVEN’T ALTERED THERE OFFENSIVE PLAYS IN THREE YEARS, WHY DO THEY STILL WANNA RUN UNPRODUCTIVE FULLBACKS IN THERE OFFENSE,UNLESS HE CAN RUN THE BALL OR CATCH LIKE A TIGHTEND FULLBACKS ARE USELESS.WHY DO WE USE TWO RUNNINGBACKS ALL YEAR WHEN THEY THEY HAVE 5 OR SIX BACKS. TEFORD REDSHIRTS TWO MANY GUYS ON OFFENSE AND TRYS TWO HAVE 1000 YARD BACKS EVERY YEAR WHICH IS GREAT BUT THE REST OF THE CONFERENCE KNOWS YOUR PLAYS.CAL IS NOT GETTING THE BEST OUT OF THERE TALENTS, THEY GOT GUYS COMING IN TOO PLAY BUT HAVE TOO WAIT TILL TEFORD DECIDES WHO SHOULD BE ON THE FIELD.HE NOW HAS A RUNNING BACK PROBLEM LET ALONE QB PROBLEM,VEREEN IS GONE AND HE HASN’T USED THE OTHER RUNNINGBACKS WRIGHT.ISI IS A BETTER RECEIVER THAN RUNNINGBACK CAUSE HE IS TOO LIGHT TOO TAKE A POUNDING ALLDAY AND TEFORD HAS FORGOT ABOUT COUGHVAGHN DEBOSKIE REFUSES TOO PUT THE 225 POUND BRUISER BACK DASARTE YARNAY ON THE FIELD AND AS FAR AS THE RECIEVERS HOW CAN A GUY CATCH THE BALL IF HE IS RUNNING THE SAME PLAYS FROM 2002 AND GETTING DOUBLED TEAMED WHILE HE WATCHES A FULLBACK STAND AROUND AFTER THE GUY MISSES THE BLOCK FOR HIS RUNNINGBACK, BOTTOMLINE THE OFFENSE HAS TOO COMPETE WITH THE PAC-12 NEXT YEAR AND THEY NEED TOO GET READY QUICK NO MORE OF THAT I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPEND CAUSE WE PREPARED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!LETS SEE THE TALENT USED WRIGHT FROM THIS POINT OWN OR CAL WILL BE LOOKING AT THE CELLAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
