Football: Bears’ focus shifts to opener vs. Nevada

Thursday was a big day on the Cal campus. Students began classes and the football team began preparation specific to its Sept. 1 opener vs. Nevada.

“It’s officially game week,” coach Jeff Tedford said. “The looks we saw in practice today were about Nevada.”

Which had to get the Bears’ attention two years after the Wolfpack buried them 52-31 in Reno. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, now a second-year player with the 49ers, totaled 329 yards of rushing and passing and accounted for five touchdowns.

Nevada used the victory as a springboard for its 13-1 campaign.

The Wolfpack has moved from the Western Athletic Conference to the Mountain West and has different personnel than in 2010. But coach Chris Ault’s pistol offense, with its three wide receivers and deceptive option running game remains.

“It’s like the triple-option,” Tedford said. “You have to cover every phase of it — you’ve got to take care of quarterback, dive back, pitch guy. They move very quickly and they play-action pass very well off it.

“The scheme itself is very difficult to stop. We have our hands full. We have to be very disciplined.”

Football: Quarterback update

Jeff Tedford said today that he will “evaluate it as the week goes on” and didn’t name a starting quarterback for Saturday’s game against Washington State.

Tedford didn’t say how he planned on dividing the reps between Zach Maynard and Allan Bridgford, but simply said “We’ll evaluate how the week goes with both quarterbacks and we’ll take it from there.  I have no idea what our game plan is yet or anything like that.”

Football: Thursday practice update

As Cal’s players walked off Witter Rugby Field this morning, I couldn’t help but notice the lack of red jerseys. The Bears are very healthy for this time of season, and not counting guys  who have season-ending injuries, should have all hands on deck for Saturday’s game against UCLA at the Rose Bowl.

It was only one game, but quarterback Zach Maynard said he felt much more comfortable during Saturday’s win over Utah than he had the two previous games. The question now whether it will be more of the same moving forward or more like the Oregon and USC games.
