Game of the Week


It's our first installment of game of the week and it's a beauty: California at Tennessee. If you are attending the game, there's no need to check the forecast because we have you covered. Our weatherman and onetime Baylor scout team quarterback, the incomparable Mark Mathis, is here with his exclusive forecast. He even has a prediction on the outcome:
"I can't believe it, the game of the week! Cal at Tennessee. Lee Corso is predicting that Cal will win the national title even after losing in Knoxville. I do know this — Corso needs to quit sipping on the Johnny Walker Black before making predictions like that! My job is the weather and I can guarantee you that my predictions will be far more accurate than Corso. Look for partly cloudy skies in Knoxville on Saturday. You might see a lightning strike near the stadium and possibly a few sprinkles and a temperature at kickoff of 74 degrees. But the only real lightning you will see will be the Vols lighting it up north to south and sending Cal back home with a 28-7 loss! Remember my job is the only job that pays to be 100% wrong!"

Jay Heater, Contra Costa Times: The veteran Cal beat reporter is blogging it, answering all questions Cal.

Jake Curtis, San Francisco Chronicle: There is one good reason the Bears might win the national championship: Somebody has to.

Ryan Callahan, Tennessean: Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer has plenty of concerns entering the game, but injuries won't be among them.

Loser With Socks: The blog gets an exclusive interview with Volunteer offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe.

great game of the week and the biggest game cal fans can recall.

people in The Bay are anxious, nervous and just excited about the publicity surrounding this one.

i have many friends making the trip from Berkeley to Knoxville and will be cheering loud for the bears. will they be heard in neyland stadium? of course not.
