Didn't mean to offend you or your husband, Mrs. Dykes. Ya'll continue to have a great Christmas, ya hear?
@slothright20: Of course when you're a powerhouse, it doesn't matter where you're from. And I agree you get the best coaches wherever possible. I don't believe anyone has anything bad to say about Dykes or his staff. But not just anyone can sell both the academics and athletics of Cal so we really will see what this staff is made of in the next few years. I also believe 'Bama's greatest advantage is that they're just a football factory with an unlimited budget and nothing else. The free payments, beer, sex, and grades of the SEC institutions as a whole also work against us, so let's no try to over-use such schools as prime examples of what Cal should be.
