Good to hear. We're going to have our ups and downs as we move through the treesitter recruiting classes, but soon I feel we should have the best of both worlds.

Great To Be A Bear - 11-18-2011, 01:11 PM

Now that is one fine looking list! Just reinforces why I love Cal so much. Sure, there are the occasional bad apples, but by and large, Cal athletes are a cut above the rest all things considered. I still like JT and what he is doing. GO BEARS, GIVE 'EM THE AXE!

This is great news, but one has to ask why the graduation rate isn't higher when JT has traditionally recruited good students?

Cal has always had some smart guys, but only in the past couple years do I recall being this impressed top to bottom.

We have? We've had some pretty checkered classes during the treesitter era. Ended up with fourth/fifth options and many didn't pan out.
