Happy birthday, Jim. You do an awesome job! My 80th was May 21.
ahhhhhhhhhhh, make that GREAT..........
You have a VERY minor typo in your women's water polo post - there's only one "s" in discus.
You do an INCREDIBLY GEAT job.
I hope you are feeling better!
I just noticed Kaufman's name surface on Coaching Search's ticker along with Sanders. Looking at his history, Kaufman actually seems pretty accomplished and if they brought in Sanders as db coach, probably helps with the SoCal recruiting. Interesting that Tubberville chose recruiting over results for his DC.
[B][I]Cal: Among the coaches on the Sonny Dykes' short list are former Cincinnati defensive coordinator Art Kaufman and former Nebraska defensive backs coach Marvin Sanders, a source tells CoachingSearch. Sanders is currently the head coach at Loyola HS in Los Angeles[/I][/B]
Wow...a lot of smoke coming from Strawberry Canyon these days. Initially liked the Dykes hire, but pretty worried now. Pretty obvious changing from basically a pro style offense to the TFS and a 3-4 to a 4-3 has shaken Cal football to the core.
Looks like Sandy didn't think through all the implications these changes would have on the program. Knew we needed a change, but maybe far too drastic.
Jim: for some unknown reason I have been cut off from The BearInsider for about one week. I am an annual subscriber and have been renewed. I have written to the Mods 3 times inquiring, but have not had the courtesy of a response. Can you please inquire for me?
Ugh...don't think the board was this toxic even last year.
Hi. Coach Nickerson has given his intent not to coach at BoD next year. How likely is it we will see him join Coach Dykes staff?
In a season of disappointment, and other years as well, it would be interesting to read about the new faces--the quality of their play, the level they could reach (star, starter, competent backup). It would also give participants in the bearinsider boards more hope. Here are some off the top of my head I"m curious about. Several may be redshirting but there might be reports from the scout team. What I'm asking can certainly be done w/o denigrating players.
Jacobi Hunter--Is he going to be really good since he's playing as a true frosh.
Cedric Dozier--I know he was praised after Arizona, but I'd like to hear more.
Steve Moore and Chris Borrayo--are they the basis of a future solid OL
Hope someone can do this.
