    They are one answer to a trivia question

    Name all the schools with nicknames that do not end in a "S"

    Most obvious: Cardinal, Irish, Redmen, Orangemen

    Can you name the others?

    Off the top of my head: Crimson Tide ('Bama), Mean Green (North Texas), Thundering Herd (Marshall), and Golden Hurricane (Tulsa).

    We have to have another home game. TCU would not play us at home unless we gave them 2 games at TCU in the future, and that would include canceling our series with Ohio State, because the dates conflict.

    But keep tossing potshots from the safety of your bunker.

    To quote John McEnroe: "You can NOT be SERIOUS!!!"

    WTF is this?? Were the Little Sisters of the Poor and Blind already booked?

    Absolute joke to schedule a team of this caliber.

    "Blue Hose" is the name of their sports teams.

    Their mascot is "Scotty the Scotsman," who was introduced to the Blue Hose Nation just last month.

    Go Bears! Pimpslap those Hose!



    and really, who cares? We needed a patsy. Is this all that different from Portland State or Sac State or Davis in terms of difficulty?

    playing down to the opponents level

    sure that strategy works well as long as their are only 2 unbeaten BCS conference teams...if the BigTEN or Big12 had also produced undefeated teams at year end Oregon's lack of overall schedule strength would have been an issue where they could have found themselves on the wrong side of the issue....consider whether you think they would have gone ahead of an unbeaten tOSU team (also with a mediocre schedule, but with the advantage of beating Oregon in Rose the year before and legions of fans)

    scheduling weak just means less fan interest in the games and it says alot about the core values of the program......it can be about competing against the best, or it can be about winning....clearly there is more interest in winning

    i would personally rather see competitive games and better opponents...esp for home games

    I'm with ya boredom...it's a one year deal due to SAHPC and CMS construction and won't happen again.....if we drink rot gut, eat fried meat on a stick and yank out half our brain we can pretend to be an SEC team for the day...oh, I'll have to call and see if my sister or first cousin can come with me and spend the night...that should tie up all the loose ends.

    Again, this isn't the normal C game...I can't believe some of you are going on about Cal ethics and core values and crap....this year is NOT an ordinary year with all that is going on....... CHILL THE PHUCK OUT CLETUS !!!!
