Football: Cal-WSU game thread

FINAL SCORE: Cal 31, WSU 17.  Bears improve to 3-4 overall, 2-2 in the Pac-12 headed into next week’s 115th Big Game vs. Stanford. The big numbers: no QB sacks and a season-high 318 rushing yards by the Bears.

Here’s my game story.

10:27 4th Q: Anderson returns and dashes 29 yards for a TD that makes it 31-10. This one seems safely in hand, just in case it’s past your bedtime.

13:39 4th Q: Andrew Furney misses wide left on 42-yd FG try. Steve Williams has a career-high four pass breakups.

END OF THIRD QUARTER: It’s 10:25 p.m., do you know where your long snapper is? Cal leads 24-10.

2:02 3rd Q: Vincenzo D’Amato’s career-long 52-yard FG gives Cal 24-10 lead.

10:58 3rd Q: Cal takes opening kickoff and marches 71 yards in nine plays, capped by Maynard’s 2-yard keeper. Brendan Bigelow had a 25-yard run on the drive and Allen made his ninth catch of the night — for 15 yards — giving him 194 for his career. That leaves him one shy of Dameane Douglas (195) for No. 2 on Cal’s career list. Bears lead 21-3.

HALFTIME: Cal 14, WSU 3. Bears are halfway to their eighth straight win over the Cougars. Total yardage: Cal 287, WSU 196. Rushing: Cal 23-157, WSU 10-20. Passing: Maynard is 9 for 16 for 130 yards with two INTs. Allen has eight catches for 123 yards — his first 100-yard game of the season. Each team had two turnovers in the half, all in the first quarter. Cal gets the ball first in the third quarter.

6:35 2nd Q: Cal answers emphatically, going 75 yards in nine plays. Maynard completed passes of 16 and 20 yards to Allen and had runs of 7 and 11 yards. C.J. Anderson got the final 4 yards for the TD and the Bears lead 14-3.

10:14 2nd Q: Andrew Furney kicks 20-yard field goal for the Cougars, capping 16-play, 86-yard drive. Cal’s defense turned back the Cougs on six straight plays inside the 10-yard line before WSU settled for three points. Cal leads 7-3.

END OF 1ST Q: Cal leads 7-0. Total offense — Cal 161 yards, WSU 101. Two turnovers each. At this pace, we’ll have 16 for the game!

5:55 1st Q: On third-and-4 from the 31, Maynard flicks slant pass to Keenan Allen, who makes two great jukes on the way to a 69-yard TD. Cal leads 7-0.  Allen looked like a pro on that one.

7:07 1st Q: Michael Lowe intercepts Halliday for the Bears.

11:45 1st Q: Tedford challenges official’s call on second consecutive play — and gets the nod this time. Steve Williams is awarded interception in end zone on pass to Marquess Wilson. Cal ball at the 20.

13:20 1st Q: For the second consecutive game, Maynard’s first pass of the the game is picked off. This one skipped off fingertips of Darius Powe, picked by Cyrus Coen.

COIN FLIP: Yes, we are actually going to play a game tonight. Brian Schwenke, Keenan Allen, Josh Hill and Michael Lowe to midfield for coin flip: Cal to kickoff.

LINEUP INFO: Senior CB Marc Anthony is dressed and will play, but Kameron Jackson, the reigning Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week, will start.

WELCOME: Here at Martin Stadium in Pullman, Wash., under beautiful Palouse skies. Very unlikely to rain tonight. Temps are cool, but hardly cold. Gonna be a great night for football. And a late one. WSU throws 50 times a game, so don’t plan to switch off your TV until 11 p.m. or so.

    I was wrong?

    You made your first two predictions this weekend and you were wrong about both.

    Correct or will you lie again and will I need to repost your posts?

  • GOGO Bears

    Just remember, no matter how annoying he is, no one would ever want to switch places with Moron.

    USC undergrad with a gpa so low he couldn’t get into Boalt Law so he went to UC Davis. There he had a mentasl breakdown. The late great GoldenBear71 pretended to be Moron’s friend and Moron revealed he had to leave law school and only found work in a travel agency that his rich daddy used.

    Moron has posted on most every friday & saturday night, on Halloween, on New Year’s Eve, on Valentine’s day nite — this tells us he is all alone. No friends, no gf, no nothing. He is ALL ALONE and all he has is his obessesive hate for Cal.

    Pity the troll. The reason he can keep doing this for so many years is he has absolutely nothing else in his life. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE.

    Go check out Bear Insiders or SF Gate where moron is banned. Check out how even SC fans have punked him and he is banned at WeAreSC.

    The little freak is annoying, but he is a pathetic human who will die alone. Pity him.

  • Easy Ed

    Come on Cheeto Kid, what connection do you have to USC? Until you can complete your “education” at the local community college you don’t belong in any conversation involving a university.

    Sit in front of your monitor, lick the orange stains off of your fingertips and keep showing everyone on this site what a jealous little loser your are. BTW, I saw “Daddy” at the Club again this morning at Sunday Brunch. He was on his fourth Bloody Mary and he looked at me with his bloodshot eyes and red bulbous nose and said, “I guess I shouldn’t complain, I only had one loser in the litter”! Was he talking about his dropout jobless offspring aka YOU!!!

  • GOGO Bears

    Now wait — he thinks I’m Boyson — the Cal advisor who got him banned at all those sites. He will now go on his usual rant about Boyson. He’s obsessed with that guy, probably because Moron has NO ONE in his life.

    He will die alone.
    He is alone already.

    Pity him.

    GOGO Bears

    Are you Sherm Boyson, the Social Welfare Advisor?

    Yes or No?

  • GOGO Bears

    Have you any friends? Why are you home alone posting on Friday and Saturday nights? How come you have no one to go out with on New Year’s Eve? Did you have to leave law school?

    Are you the obsessed troll with no life that everyone pities? Did Boyson get you banned from SF gate? And from Scout? And from BI? Did the SC fans punk you and ban you?

    THose are the questions we want answered, little freak. I notice you don’t deny any of what I wrote.

    Pity the troll, folks THIS is all the little freak has left.

  • GOGO Bears

    Take a look at the archived messages from the9drawfs, moron’s old sn at sfgate. See his obession with Boyson? He thinks everyone here is Boyson-over the years he’s accused me and several others of all being Boyson.

    Pity the troll. THe only person he has passion for in his life is Boyson — how pathetic is that?

    All alone

    On New Year’s Eve.
    On every Friday & Saturday night
    On every game day — he doesn’t even have friends to watch games with.
    On Valentine’s Day — we all know he never got any unless he paid for it, using daddy’s money since the travel agency doesn’t pay enough to buy a girl.

    So sad to be so alone. The troll will spew his hate here in this forum as long as ANG won’t ban him — and he’ll stay here for he has NOTHING else to do. Notice how immediately he responded? HE IS SITTING AT HIS COMPUTER waiting to sprew more hate towards Cal at every moment. How sad.

    I got a great Sunday planned. I’m out of here. But the troll will remain and post his hate. By himself. All alone.

    I’ve stayed away from these forums and am loving BI and SFGate. I just visited today to remind you that no matter how annoying he is here, NO one would EVER choose to change lives with him, for if they did they would be ALL ALONE.

    Bye troll.

    I must be hitting close to home because the Cheeto Kid won’t touch me!

    You took the words right out of my mouth. I noticed the same thing about you.

    If you don’t deny that you are Sherm Boyson, it can be assumed you are. However you are so afraid to admit it because then you just might be “IHeartDaddy” on SF Gate.

    And “IHeartDaddy” has been posting at 1AM, 2AM, 3AM, 4AM, 5AM and on weekends and holidays too. In fact, that poster has been posting during work time. Would the taxpayers be happy about that?

  • SteveNTexas

    Unfortunately Cal can’t compete with USC and some other Pac 12 programs.


  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Don’t believe GOGO Bears. It cannot post at SF Gate because I got it banned as JaviatCal, CalBandGreatxx, USCCoachxx, AllAlone, HalloweenAlone,BearTalk, HairoftheBear, PastorRick, and at least 10 others including NewYearsAlone, FatAdvisor, GayTeddyBear, and BeMyValentine.

  • SteveNTexas

    By the way that is in alphabetical order – no way USC ranks as low as #15.

  • milo

    Moron has an identical pair of OJ gloves and he/she/it puts them on at night, gets some astroglide out and farts in his own soup because that’s how they do things at $C.

  • GOGO Bears

    One last proof of that fine U$C education. In one post, Moron accuses me of being I heart daddy on sfgate. In the next post he says I can’t post on sfgate cuz he banned me. Can’t be both, idiot — pick one lame attempt to deflect attention from your pathetic lonely life and stick with it. Bahahahahahahahah.

    Don’t you love idiot trolls? Bad enough you are ALL ALONE for life, little freak, try not be stupid as well.

    Bye all.

  • covinared

    did not see the game. heard it on xm. wsu announcers are not very good. good to see rb’s rotating through to always have fresh legs. 3rd down still seems to be a problem. foolish penalties kept the last wsu scoring drive alive. can’t get away with that against the next teams.

  • Beastmode

    Arrested development indeed… like a deer mesmerized by car headlights, or a moth by candle, lured into its own destruction by a fatal flaw. When it happens again and again, it is no longer fascinating, only pitiful.

  • SteveNTexas

    Moren had no comment on the 15 least ethical college football programs by a neutral objective source.

  • BlueNGold

    wow moron you are more than clueless. Do you not get it that no one here gives a ratz azz about your feud with this advisor you obsess over? Why do you keep posting this crap? No one cares, ok? You claim that you are only here to talk football, but its pretty clear you have a very different agenda. You are a liar and a hypocrite.

  • ScottyBear

    Moron: The fact that you defended OJ (convicted murderer – yes in civil court and we all know he was guilty – says it all.

  • BlueNGold

    OJ is morally bankrupt, so he and moron have lots in common beyond their ties to the sleazy cheaters.

    Sherm – out of respect for GldnBear71 I will keep secrets forever. However many (and especially YOU) who have been on scout, BI, etc got punked by us. You were the TOOL being used to spread all of the false information and we just sat back LOBO. You got set up bigtime but we thought it had to be reigned in when Wisdom Cow aka Inspector Clousseau and you got the name of that woman who was innocent plastered all over SFGate.

    I can do one thing right now (but I won’t) to prove how my point. RIP GldnBear71. You were a lot of fun.
