(Call me Dan, Class of ‘02 - Political Science Major - suffered 4 years of a Holmoeian rash, which mysteriously cleared up after graduation).
Steve Levy. Yes it’s been a year since that short, somewhat rotund ex-fullback took the reins of the high powered Cal offense and lead the Bears to their 4th straight Big Game victory (see above celebrating).
I would like to point out to the young, spoiled (and USC-embittered) Cal fans out there that pre-Tedford WE LOST 7 STRAIGHT BIG GAMES!!!!! People now take it for granted, but at one time my high school could’ve given the Cal team a good game. That is beside the point however. I have read that Tedford should consider starting Levy this weekend against Stanfurd, as a "tribute" to him and his senior year and that Longshore has struggled the past month or so. I disagree. The same people who have soured on Nate are the ones calling for Tedford’s head (amazingly enough, these people DO exist - perhaps they are the same people who think protecting a few oaks is more important than a new athletic center which would replace the earthquake death trap that currently exists).
We NEED Longshore to regain his confidence. Word was just confirmed that it will be Cal-Texas A&M in the beloved Holiday Bowl. A&M aren’t slouches: most of their losses have been close and they did knock off Texas, meaning they will be AMPED UP to play Cal and hate on West Coast football. Anyway, I have one last sentence to write in this, my FIRST post on CGB’s: Start Longshore and also, TWIST AND HOOK!!!!!!! (see below for the twisting and the hooking)
