Stalwart Bears and Diffident Cats
The Cal men played great today, beating a ranked Arizona State University team that crushed Stanford on Friday by thirty points. The Cal women, who have been ranked all season, had a much harder time playing the Sun Devils on the road, but prevailed in a one-point squeaker. The only down side is that the Wildcat men are playing so badly at Stanford tonight that they are diminishing the value of the Bears' victory against them on Friday. I was rooting for Arizona, primarily because I want that win to count for something. But, boy, maybe it is time to stop defending Chase Budinger, who plays like he's on Valium most of the time.

i watched some of the Cal v. ASU game & have to say your lads looked far more committed than the Devils did. whatever else happens, it looked to me like your squad is going to put the effort in most of the time. loved their defense down the stretch.

I agree. Arizona State played pretty good defense -- they always do -- but seemed to be turned down a notch in intensity relative to Cal at the end. I doubt whether we'll do well against them on the road, but I'm still pleased as can be. It's nice that you watched, because the Bears aren't on TV much outside of the Pac-10 area.

i like to flip around between all the various Fox sports networks some evenings, & that's where i saw some of the Cal game. since i'm doing this late at night most of the time, i actually get to see bits & pieces of lots of PAC-10 games.
