So, the college football season is over. What’s a football fan to do? Eight months to go. Is Spring Football and recruiting news enough to sustain you? What if there was something kinda like football (no, not the Arena League), but play almost never stopped, everyone plays offense and defense, there are almost no substitutions, and there are no wussy specialized kickers? As most Cal fans must have realized by now, I’m talking about college athletics’ greatest dynasty, Rugby.
In fact, if you missed it (I know I did), it’s already Rugby season! On Wednesday, Cal defeated Humboldt State, 48-12. Clearly, our side must be rusty, as they gave up two tries two the opposition and only beat them by 36. Hopefully they’ll perform better tomorrow as they take on St. Mary’s on Witter Rugby Field. You should check them out.
Unfortunately, considering how dominant we are at Rugby, the results do not count towards the Director’s Cup standings. The Director’s Cup is awarded annually to the school with the best overall athletic program, by which I mean Stanford. Seriously, they’ve won something like the last 13 cups. Our best finish ever was last year, when we finished 7th. But, after the fall season, Cal stands, with 364.5 points, in first place! Lurking in second, typically, is Stanford, with 334 points.
In other news, it appears tensions between the tree protesters and the police are escalating, culminating in a police raid early this morning. I’m sure another lawsuit will result from this. Fabulous.
And finally, regarding a completely different subject, I was made aware this morning of the fact that our site has no way to contact us on it. The situation has been remedied. So, if you have anything at all to say to us regarding the site — comments, complaints, want to exchange links, etc. — feel free to use the new link on the right sidebar, or email us at goldenblogs(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for reading, and Go Bears!
