Decommits from Cal and immediately commits to Iowa. Cal has no RB or QB commits this cycle.

Here's another reason why recruiting to Cal sucks right now....a million less viewers than the 11th place Pac-12 team:

Maybe thats why the pac 12 network is not freezing up this year. I think I will watch Murdock MysterysFriday night and check the score Saturday morning.

The only redeeming feature of these decommits is that it is they may not play in the moribund P12. They are good enough to play wherever they want and they are smart enough to take their talent where it will be appreciated.

Subtract the UO/Ohio State game and the Ducks are at 4.3 million.

Overall, the numbers are pretty sad….

The big time programs average on a weekly basis more than the cumulative total of the average P12 team.

No wonder there is a mass exodus of talent from west to east…..

It's not so much that people don't want to watch Cal games (although that is an issue) but weren't the games on pac12 network, which is completely excluded from the data?

No one is going to mention that 3 of Cal's 5 games were on the P12 network, and not counted?

The two games that weren't Pac12 network were Nevada (on FS1) and Sacramento State (on ESPNU).

Excluding Pac12 Network games, when 3 of 5 are on P12N and then attempting any assessment about the numbers is asinine.

(edit: sorry Oski, I see you did mention it about 7 min before my post)

We have good young RBs. I'm not worried about that. RB is also a position a freshman, JC or transfer can be slotted in later. It is more the appearance of the program. How we are viewed by recruits. Justyn Martin or another top QB is a priority, as well as highly rated (ie big and fast) DL, LBs, OL, et al.

The data reflects the viewership from two games:

Nevada (255,000) 7th lowest rating out of 31 games in Week 1
TCU (193,000) 4th lowest rating out of 28 games in Week 2

Actually, we should be appreciative that the P12 network data is not available. Because of the network's scope, the average viewership numbers would probably be even lower.

RBs and QBs are for losers!

What you want are a lot of TEs who don't block and you never get the ball to!

We are 1-4 mostly against weak competition. We should be thankful few were able to watch.

Our big name opponents and televised games are coming up. We have a nationally televised game against #9 Oregon on ESPN this Friday. Our viewership numbers are going to go up! Yay

Over/Under??

Stanford/ASU attracted 1.134 million viewers last Friday (on ESPN at 7:30PDT).

Will Cal/UO (also a Friday game on ESPN at 7:30PDT) be over or under that total?

Certainly that was a more compelling matchup. When are the numbers taken? I suspect that a large number of viewers on the East Coast that might have stayed up for the end of that game will be asleep by the end of ours.

However, I am confident we will have more viewers for this one game than the above graphic shows us as having for the total of the first 5 games.

You have hit upon one of the problems with the Cal offense: Musgrave has some aversion to using TE's as receivers. Rarely does he call a play to throw to them especially in the red-zone ( where their height can be used to great advantage).

Play action pass to a TE who fakes run blocking then breaks wide open for a pass is the basic use of a TE. Mixed with run blocking outside. It is also a great way to keep defenses from blitzing and makes your run game more effective, then gets your receivers single coverage. Throwing to the TE off play action is especially effective in typical run situations. First and 10, short yardage,,etc
I thought we would be getting all this from Musgrave as just traditional "pro style" offense, but his play calling and strategy have been lacking over the 9 games we have seen him call plays.

I know. My comment stands. If the P12 network data was available, the average viewership numbers (in this case, 224,000/game) might be lower….

23 posts supposedly on the topic of a RB decommitt -- 15 of them are about the Pac 12 Network, and 4 are about throwing to the TE.

Focus, people!
To be completely honest, the only thing that seems open to healthy discussion this season is what network the games are on and what positions get the ball.

Any deeper gets a little depressing.

Anyway, what do you guys think about the center snapping the ball? I dont think its all of our offenses problems, but it shows strong correlation with the other problems.

Long snapping is a skill. It is not just something guys do in their spare time or a second job for scout team centers. Obviously, the current LS is skilled. What he needs now is a booster shot of confidence. And, of course, it would help if the holder could do a better job of scooping up wayward snaps. Given that the punter is the designated holder in modern football (for a variety of reasons), I suspect the problem is that the current punter just doesn't have a ton of experience. In other words, it comes down to how one gets to Carnegie Hall - practice, practice, practice……
