Look, I know you guys are all pissed off about last Saturday’s loss. I am just as mad as you are if not more. I was just as surprised at Tedford’s handling of the starting QB situation as you were. I was most definitely floored by how horrible and lackluster our front lines were. But you know what, I’m not about to give up on our Bears. THE BEAR WILL NOT QUIT, THE BEAR WILL NOT DIE.
As unacceptable as last Saturday’s loss, let’s look at the brightside of things. Most analysts were expecting an 8-4 season, which is still completely possible. Also, every season we always have a victory against a team we are supposed to lose to (Arizona State last season) and a loss that no one expects just like last year’s loss against UCLA (once again the pistol beat us). Cal bounced back well after that loss against UCLA, so maybe it is a good thing that we are getting that loss out of the way first game this season.
You just never know – what if Cal bounces back big time just like in 2006 when Cal lost its opening game to Tennessee (though it was an away game) and came back to share the Pac-10 championship. We know from the Nevada game that our young receivers Chris Harper and Bryce Treggs will be phenomenal weapons this season. So let’s keep our heads up and keep shouting our heads off for our Bears, no matter how pissed off you are right now. Do it for our student-athletes, seniors, and all of Cal!
