Cal’s rare Friday night game; is clock ticking for Tedford?

Friday, November 2, 2012

For those tracking the demise of Cal’s football program under the tutelage of Jeff Tedford, a couple of program notes about tonight’s first-ever Friday night game at Berkeley against Washington: It’ll be a return for Huskies assistant Tosh Lupoi, who bolted Cal last winter and took Cal’s top recruit—in whose home he’d been, with Tedford—a couple of nanoseconds before skedaddling to Seattle. Cal’s best player, junior wide receiver Keenan Allen, won’t play and is likely done at Cal. He was injured during a meaningless onside kick attempt in a 49-27 loss at Utah last week. He’s expected to go to the NFL next year.

You’ve got to admire the optimistic tone of some Bay Area sportswriters who keep reminding us that Tedford’s Bears, who are 3-6, need to win three more games (including against Oregon and Oregon State) to be bowl eligible. Yeah, right.
