Hi, everyone. I’m back from two weeks vacation and ready to go. Obviously, Cal has been in the news recently because of the Will Lyles story, and I will be following up on that immediately. At this point, it doesn’t appear Cal has committed any wrongdoings in its association with Lyles, but we will be efforting to gather as much information in the near future to find out as much as possible about the situation. Even if Cal indeed has been totally compliant in its dealings with Lyles, the program’s association with him doesn’t look good. That’s more of a perception issue, and the program shouldn’t necessarily be faulted for that if indeed it hasn’t done anything wrong. But again, just the fact that Cal has dealt with a person that appears to have been involved in some questionable actions doesn’t exactly put the program in a favorable light.
While I was away, several Cal players were named to preseason watch lists. I will post something separately a little later recapping those announcements.
One other thing: PLEASE stop with the personal attacks/contentious comments on here. Let’s keep it to civil, football-related discussions.
