Hoops are a memory. Spring sports are over. Football season will be here before we know it.

In the meantime, I’m off for a bit of vacation with the family.

I’ll tell you all about it upon my return. Hope all of you find some time to exhale and recharge.

And try to get along with each other while I’m gone.

    moron is spewing untruths, as usual. Coaches do not ‘push’ their players to take ‘hard disciplines’ in any sports program. Its not their function and is not the goal of any program. Besides, moron knows nothing about how Cal coaches fulfill their academic mandates. That is because moron has never been there, has no inside or personal knowledge and probably invents or imagines most of the stuff it posts here anyway. In short, moron has zero credibility, which goes hand in hand with having zero life.

    @Juancho – while I acknowledge your view of whether the graduation rates matter, one issue you should not forget is that strong academics has been a crutch used by Tedford supporters. So even the football team had a mediocre season, the argument for strong academics was a way of rationalizing why many other teams were doing better than us. I remember getting into a heated debate in 2010 with some of the kool aid drinkers when I pointed out that Cal was at the bottom quarter for Pac-10 football all-academics.

    So whether APR really is a good measurement or not, or whether we should even care about graduation rates (I personally do, because I firmly believe we should be the best at EVERYTHING), it removes another card holding up the house of cards.

    moron, you should have actually READ the article you posted about Fujita. It portrays him in a positive light, and also shows he has a lot of respect and support from the players who know him. Hardly the sort of moral degenerate you keep claiming he is, but we all know that truth and honesty are not your strong suits, are they? Did you know that he has both an undergrad and a master’s degree from Cal? I know its difficult for someone who never made it out of the first year of law school to show some respect for his academic achievements, but Fujita actually epitomizes the type of student athlete which you are constantly (and boringly repetitively) harping about the Cal athletic progams not cultivating or nurturing. Just more of the same hypocritical double talk from moron, but hardly any surprise there.
