Hey! Something positive maybe? - 03-28-2012, 09:50 AM

So as we await fresh Spring Practice reports, and mull over our concerns and expectations for 2012, let us look back with a positive light on the 2011 season;

1)What was your favorite game of 2011?
2) What was your favorite play of 2011?
3) Who was your favorite player in 2011?

Not that it matters much, but here are my answers:

1)Colorado-Though it caused me undue stress, it was a pretty exciting win
2)The game-winning brother-to-brother pass at Colorado
3) Isi Sofele-never thought he would be that good, I admired his scrappiness.

If highlights against bottom of the pac Colorado are our positives, I should prob go cry once more for 2011.

...to turn this negative. I was just offering an opinion. You can in fact enjoy games and plays against sub-par competition.

'11 was a transition year and has mostly been erased from the memory banks. I look forward to the forthcoming season at the newly renovated CMS. Go Bears!

1. Cal vs. ASU, it was a wild shootout in the desert, very exciting.
2. Maynard to Allen - endzone fade vs. Colorado, thrilling finish.
3. Marvin Jones - model Cal player - excellent character and very skilled, those circus catches on the sideline with his toes were phenomenal, I remember watching the slow-mo replays and just being awe-struck.

Looking forward to 2012!

That slant to KA @ UW for the TD was the most exciting play of the year for me, as it turned out. Why? Because at that time it was early in the season and there were plenty of unknowns -- i.e. there was much hope for our football team to go places and much hope in Maynard. When I saw that play and after watching Maynard bring us back at CU, I thought Maynard had the "it" factor. I felt really alive about Cal football at that point. And even as we lost, we went down fighting on the 2-3 yard line or whatever it was. That's what I wanted to see again. No more blowouts to decent teams. Back to playing some competitive football against good teams. Well, this kind of thing didn't vanish in 2011 but at that point in time I had much hope and vision of national relevancy for our football team. Pretty much went downhill from there LOL.

Roth to Walker just has a better ring in the history books than Maynard to Allen.

Yes, Kline to Treggs has a lot of nice promise. Roth to Walker had results. Here's to Kline and Treggs breaking lots of records.

I'll take Kline to Treggs, Powe, Lawler, Dozier and Harper. Lots of targets to throw to!

tie between ASU game and Colorado
Honorable mention to the furd game in a losing effort.
Favorite player: Zach Maynard-just kidding-Marvin Jones
Favorite play: I would like to take this opportunity to restore a play that was taken away from Coleman Edmund against Colorado. It was one of the greatest catches I've seen. Everyone knows it was a catch. But the "new rule" said it wasn't. Great job Coleman.
