In what was probably the best Big Game of the Tedford era Cal beats the Furd in the Big Game to keep the Axe at home for another year.
I'm already looking forward to next years home games. After some pretty tough home losses (U$C & Oregon State) the Arizona game and the Big Game reminded me of why I love Cal football so much. The pure joy of Cal coming through in a close game to pull it out is such a magical feeling. It was worth the miserable feeling on the long drive home after the U$C & Oregon State games just for the joy of the Arizona game. The joy of pulling out a victory against our arch rivals (while being the underdog) was just icing on the cake.

How often do you hear the tv announcers say "WOOOOOO?" Well get used to it because the Pain Train is departing. Toot! toot! Detroit signed 7th Round draft pic & Cal Alum Zack Follet to add some passion to their special teams and he delivered in his first week on the job with this vicious hit on Rams kick returner Danny Amendola. Check out the starting quarterback get hyped up about the hit.
It's because of hits like this that you still see a lot of #56 jerseys at Cal games. We Cal fans love this guys intensity and heart. I got to watch this guy blow people up with the Cal blue & gold on and I'm looking forward to seeing him do his thing in the silver & blue. His Cal highlights are a thing of beauty.
Best of luck in the NFL. Make those other teams that passed you up pay.
