Well-Timed Entrance

This college football season was already immensely frustrating for Cal fans before Saturday's scary injury to running back Jahvid Best. And that means that the early arrival of the men's basketball team's season tonight is especially welcome. Mike Montgomery's squad is burdened with high expectations, just like Jeff Tedford's. But I have more confidence in the hoopsters' prospects than I did in that of their gridiron counterparts. When you have four solid seniors and promising role players, together with Montgomery's fine coaching, chances are pretty good that the team will do well. Whether that will be good enough for postseason success is another question. The Bears' December 22nd contest with top-ranked Kansas should be a quite a reality check, not to mention Thursday's game against Syracuse. Right now, though, I'm just happy to see them in action.
