    He’s a bigger version of Hines Ward. Awesome player.

  • ScottyBear

    So glad he is a Bear!!

  • BearFan

    Keenan Allen is the Allen Crabbe of the football team…in other words most talented, most athletic, best player by far on the team!

  • calgrizzlybear

    we better start winning before he transfers … he already knows his bro needs to benched or get better

  • bigdruid

    When you’re the top WR in the country, you don’t transfer, you just go pro early.

  • Cre8tivguy

    They went through a lot in order to go to school together. He’s not going to leave early now.

  • Uh Huh!

    Yeah, that transfer comment was stupid.
    It’s out of the realm of possibility. If he transfers, he’d sit a year and would not even play a down for anyone else before being drafted.
    His only chance to play football before the NFL is at Cal, unless you consider some Division 2 school.

    He won’t transfer. We get him this year, next year, and then he will be off to the NFL.

  • calgrizzlybear

    aww im swrry uh huh … who knows he might get tired of losing grr … thats the unknown i was thinking about

  • TipsyBear

    The only thing that would make Keenan bolt early would be if Maynard gets benched. But he’s only a Sophomore, so we got a least one more year from him, maybe two if Cal starts winning next year.

    On a side note, does anyone else think that Harbaugh is a douche, but secretly wish Tedford showed his enthusiasm and ability to rally the troops? Sigh…

  • rollonubears

    I don’t think Keenan’s decision to bolt early will have anything to do with personnel decisions. It’s going to come down to what his draft stock is after next year.

  • ScottyBear

    Gladly take Tedford the douche over Tedford the wimp

  • Easy Ed

    All you Maynard haters out there, who is throwing Keenan Allen the football?

  • rollonubears

    The same guy who isn’t throwing it to anyone else. I’m not saying this stat isn’t great, but if the offense was balanced, we’d probably have another W, and we wouldn’t be talking about this stat.

  • Easy Ed

    That may be true but we haven’t had a quarterback who could hit a bull in the behind from 5 yards out since Aaron Rogers
