Ruling Could Lead to Tedford's Departure

A judge's preliminary injunction stopping the construction of a training center adjacent to California's Memorial Stadium was considered a victory to a group of environmentalists who have been camping for weeks in old oak trees that would have to be cut down for the project. But the ruling could be a blow to the long-term success of Cal football and to keeping coach Jeff Tedford happy. The facilities situation is so important to Tedford that the buyout in his current contract is tied to the project. Currently, his buyout is $150,000. Once the project is started, his buyout goes to $300,000.

"Anybody who's asking those questions is very uneducated to my feelings to Cal and this program," Tedford said. "My commitment is unwavering. My commitment is 100 percent to Cal. I'm not panicking. I'm not fazed by this at all.

"I want those statements to be clear to our players, our recruits and anyone else who is wondering."

The liberals of Berkeley don't deserve a high caliber NCAA football team. Let them eat hummus cake!

Oak trees? That is more than laughable.
