Football: Pac-12 is 0-3 in bowls, but . . .

If you’re gonna lose a bowl game, this is the way to do it.

Check out the comic-book stats assembled in Baylor’s 67-56 instant-classic victory over Washington in the Alamo Bowl.

Fans who sat through Wednesday’s Holiday Bowl between Cal and Texas had to be envious. Baylor outscored UW 29-14 in the third quarter alone — more points than were generated all night in San Diego.

    Cal’s loss should count double it was so ugly.

  • Jim

    UW’s Price is a sophomore, on a team packed with receivers including a tight end who can catch, and a decent running game.

    All they need is a D, but against us they won’t need much D because JT insists on making ZM into a pocket passer.

    UW never gave up, took the lead, kept fighting. If we had played Baylor … omg

  • JLC

    Without the turnovers Texas would not have WON. It was not Cal’s day Wednesday night. If Texas had the turnovers they would of lost by a larger score.

    But it’s in the books and all we have to look forward to is a better 2012. The 2011 recruits will make a big difference going into 2012 season.

  • DB

    Does Washington have any linebackers and, if so, where the heck were they last night? RG III didn’t smoke them, the running game of Baylor did.

    Washington was pathectic on defense. A joke.

  • Caladan

    So, let me see if I have this right, Jeff. Cal fans should wish they had been embarrassed by their Defense rather than their Offense? We miss you, JO.

  • Steve W

    Washington has already permanently moved ahead of Cal in the Pac 12 North pecking order. That situation will never change as long as Tedford is at the helm. He will consistently get out coached and out schemed by Sarkesian. Sort of like what was happening when Sarkesian and Pete Carroll were out coaching Tedford when they were at USC.

    I really like that young tight end at Washington, and he is just a true freshman. Is there anyone else besides me who is not sad to say goodbye to Anthony Miller? I thought his personal foul during Cal’s last real drive was one of the keys in the Holiday Bowl loss. The lack of production at the tight end position is one of the reasons that Cal can’t beat a good team anymore.

  • Will

    We all miss JO, but layoff JF – the guy is pulling double duty, and he also has a point here – if we’re going to lose, I’d rather be entertained in a shootout.

  • Will

    *I mean get off JF’s back – I used a poor choice of words in the previous post.

  • Caladan

    You’re right, Will. Jeff – I apologize for the “JO” reference, but not for the criticism of the premise for your post.

    Mora = Tedford

    Things look very bad for you staters

  • BlueNGold

    Better to be a “stater” (whatever that is supposed to mean) than being a dropout with no life and nothing to show for oneself other than more than 8 years of obsessive trolling a college athletics blog site in order to talk trash and ridicule about the team being discussed there. I am sure the troll’s parents are very proud of their offspring’s life and accomplishments, though.

  • Caladan

    That’s a big assumption you’re making that Amy has parents, but as Rodney Dangerfield used to say, “Now I know why tigers eat their young”.

  • discdude

    I’m sorry #10, did you say something? Funny, I can’t read it and if everyone else would install this, you’d sit in the corner all alone.

    !!! ABOLISH THE TROLL !!!

    5 minutes of work, a lifetime of peace. I haven’t seen a post by this dbag in 3 years. Or, you can keep feeding her, your choice. (works best with Firefox, but you can get it to work in IE or even iphone)

  • CalBearister

    “Stater” is funny. A school ranked 23rd by USNWR (lower than Cal). 46th by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (tied with Davis and Irvine, behind every other UC school except Riverside – Cal, FYI, is #2). The only top ranked program at USC is “video game design.” In other words, USC is academically inferior in every single way, by every single metric, to Cal. All you have is athletics – and it is definitely the best program money can buy. Just ask Reggie Bush.

    The article is well worth reading and you can take a poll attached to the article.

  • MoreSanctionsComing

    Nothing the troll submits is worth reading. Speaking of polls, didn’t we have a vote regarding said troll? Didn’t she agree to leave if everyone voted her off? Then after everyone did vote her off, she broke the agreement she made.

    Why don’t you go away troll, like you said you would? Why would anybody believe anything you say after you have proven yourself to be such a shameless liar? Have a little bit of honor. Keep your word and go away.

  • Will

    Over/under on the # of the troll’s NYE posts this year? I’m going to set it at 3.5.

  • Calfan1

    Caldan,
    i read your comments #5 and #9. I think JF is just saying that the game last night was more entertaining one – that’s it.

  • Jeff Faraudo

    Calfan1 got it right — I was simply suggesting that the Baylor-UW game was a treat to watch, not that Cal fans would prefer a bad defense to a bad offense (not my words). The Alamo Bowl was an instant classic. Agreed?

  • Eric

    @covinared – for you, that appears to be a concession that the game was poorly coached, because Cal never adjusted to deal with the Texas pressure (even though certain easy plays arguably would have stopped it) and Cal never had a way to deal with Maynard’s inability to roll right and throw (rolling right and running of course is something he can do).

    That’s worth over $2 million a year, I guess.

    And your comments are? Your first football related comment will be your first.

    Honor is not calling a young female student the ‘B’ and the ‘N’ word and then attempting to cause physical harm to her. Furthermore, honor is not in rallying athletes to your cause just so that you can keep your job.

    It takes a dishonorable person to know a dishonorable person.

  • Caladan

    What the heck? Jeff – Please log this as additional evidence of the need to ban MoreNCsarecoming.

  • Caladan

    Jeff – I would agree that the 2011 Alamo Bowl was an instant classic for Baylor fans.

    Cal is going to be worse than Oregon and Washington for sure next year. Unknowns are Stanford, Oregon st. Wash st. So another year in the middle…..they have no future in the PAC north…

    So it is New Year’s Eve.

    The night EVERYONE goes out with their friends.

    Except for those who have NO Friends and will spend tonite like they spend every New Year’s Eve, Valentines Day, Halloween, and saddest of all — his birthday: ALL ALONE.

    SC has no bowls
    Our little troll has no law degree or friends.
    As ye sow so shall ye reap.

    Enjoy what you deserve SC and Troll.

    The rest of us? GO HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GoGo Bears

    Our favorite troll already has a dozen posts today on SFGate. Gee, I guess he has no holiday plans. Bahahahahahahahahahah

    I, however, do. So bye all. Have a great new year’s eve.

    Have a nice time alone Moron. So 2012 makes how many consecutive years without being laid? 5? 10? Never been laid?

    Bahahahahahahahahah.

  • BlueNGold

    Moron sez:
    “And your comments are? Your first football related comment will be your first.”

    I have news for the moron. Posting trash talking, snarky comments about Cal, its football team, coaches, academic programs and fans is not ‘football related posting’. You can call it being an obnoxious jerk, which you seem to revel in, but ‘football related’ it definitely is not.

    And just when were you planning to start posting ‘football related comments’, moron?

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Looks like “All Alone” just got banned at SacBee.com. HAHAHAHA.

    Sherm – no I have never had sex the way you have it.
