Go Bears!

Cal defeat Air Force 42-36. I've been telling people that they'd win by 6±30, so I'm pleased. And psychic.

So now the triumphant Golden Bears, undisputed champions of the Bell Helicopters Armed Forces Bowl, proud owners of a 7-6 record, will celebrate New Year's Eve in scenic Forth Worth TX before returning to Berkeley.

Okay, I guess the year was a disappointment, but ten years ago we'd be pretty psyched about a winning record and a bowl win.

i couldnt' help but notice that Coach Gayford is one of the top 5 highest paid coaches in D1. i think another 7-6 season and that might change.

Let me ask a stupid question. Do any of the bowl games mean squat besides the BCS championship?

Playoff. NOW!!!!!

Carl: Well, he did drag us out of the gutter. A losing season or two could cause people to lose patience.

Earl: The bowl games are vital to two groups, the fans of the teams (and conferences to a lesser extent) who enjoy watching the game, and the rest of college fans who get to use it as a focusing point to complain about college football. Complaining about college football being the main appeal of college football.

I sadly was clothed on the first.

Lee Ann: Thank you, we started it off well in Vegas. Hope you have a good year too.

Lilly: I'll be honest, that was a little scary. Cool, but scary.

Lilly said...

Oh. I do apologise, Slappy. I didn't mean to scare you. I just got a wee bit excited 'cos I hadn't been here for a while like. I'll try to keep a lid on it in the future, ok?

Lilly: You shouldn't hold back on the jiggsblog. We're all about "cool, but ______," where blank is anything from scary to creepy to douchey.

Is "PHWOOOOAR" the last thing medieval Europeans heard before your ancestors came charging up over the horizon?
