Saturday Hangover: Cal News Week 8


The Cal Golden Bears lost, again, this weekend. Only this time, to the Oregon State Beavers. This marks the sixth loss of the season, and their fifth in a row. Lets get to some news around the Cal world to get us ready for next week:

You can get a rehash of the game here and here.I don’t know if you want to get back into that 49-17 drubbing though.

You can also get the Cal Golden Blog’s reaction to the game here.

Here we go! You lose a game 49-17 and the quarterback controversy starts up again. You can see that Hunter Hewitt (here) and Jeff Faraudo (here) both write about the newfound quarterback battler being a big deal for this week’s game.

In other news, the top seeded Cal Mens Soccer team downed Stanford on Sunday on a late Steve Birnbaum score (at least one team can win games in Berkeley). See the post game article to get the full story.

In tennis news, California senior Campbell Johnson will face freshman teammate Filip Bergevi, his doubles partner, in today’s quarterfinals in the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional. Three Golden Bears advanced in singles tournament. Cal also advanced two teams in the doubles tournament yesterday. While one of the three singles players left for Cal is sure to lose today, at least one will get to the semi-finals.

A couple of news and notes around the Pac-12:

The first BCS poll is out, and the Pac-12 has three teams in the top-16. Only problem, Oregon got leapfrogged…After a tough loss against Stanford, UCLA fans were none to happy with the end result of the disappointing game…Steve Sarkisian was embarrassed after the loss to Arizona State this weekend. He should be after that 53-24 whomping…Oregon looked dominant. As usual. Maybe since ESPN Gameday will be back in Eugene and the Oregon game will be on during primetime, they’ll be able to leapfrog other teams (yeah, I’m looking at you, ACC).
