We had a 2nd year QB coming back who finished 5th in total passing yards in the Pac12 (3 QB's ahead of him are in the NFL). We had a 1000 yard rusher returning. An improved O line and defense. So what the HELL HAPPENED??????

In my opinion this is a 7-8 win team with just an average qb and average o-line.

I think most assumed that with Bowers and the entire o-line coming back, we'd be at least average at those positions.

I think those positions can still get there, but will it matter once we start facing the teeth of our schedule?

And they (Wilcox) said he's not mobile enough......

Turnovers happened. AZ was winnable, Cal would be sitting pretty at 4-1 heading into the UCLA game. Oregon may be the best team in the conference.

What happened is that we actually started playing football games against other teams.

5th in total passing yards, 9th in completion percentage, 11th in yards per attempt, 3rd in interceptions, 10th in QB rating...

We were one of two teams (WSU was the other) that passed more than we ran which increased Bowers total yards, but we were one of the two that were worst at passing (OSU was the other).

Laird was hurt and held out of Fall camp. He does not look 100% He was "deceptively fast" last year. This year he seems pedestrian. Last year he was #8 in yards per carry (5.9 ypc). This year he is #20 (3.6 ypc)

Dancy looked great, now he doesn't play-must be hurt?

Duncan has looked good in limited play.

Last year we were tied for 12th with OSU in yards per play (5.2) . This year we are 11th with 5.5 yards per play.

It's quite obvious what happen. You simply didn't heed anything that I posted eariler this year!

Cal ain't s#!% in football and probably won't be for a very long time!

And if it doesn't, it still won't matter. The problem is bigger than Bowers or no Bowers.

Imagine last year's offense if Laird did not play like he did last year.

It's just curiosity. And it will be another glimpse into how Wilcox handles things. We know he keeps in-house stuff in-house...bad for interested fans, generally good for the team.

The second quarter of the first game happened. Bowers went to the bench and Garbers & McIIwain became our quarterback. And then Garbers became our quarterback. And then McLLwain became our quarterback. Will our real quarterback please stand up.

I take it you're a current student or recent alum? What happened is what happens every time things start looking up for Cal football. It's a phenomenon commonly referred to as typiCal.

I saw a tweet from Jim McGill a couple of days ago regarding Bowers. But I can't find it, so perhaps it was pulled. I believe the gist of it is that Bowers has a injury (thumb?) that was only recently diagnosed.

Note, this is just a 'fun' guess...the way Bowers just stood at the other end of the sideline from the rest of the QBs rather than be engaged with them and giving them the benefit of his experience suggests something other than an injury.

If we had beaten AZ many more people would be liking Wilcox

Tough to make a living when only the final score counts

... but looking forward 6 wins and a bowl win is my new goal for this team
Not much different than my previous goal of 7 wins and a bowl win

UCLA is a must win

1. Tre Watson transferred to Texas, our only speed threat from the RB position
2. Demetrius Robertson transferred to Georgia, our only deep threat from the WR position
3. Tall athletic WR Tariq Johnson left school.
4. Ross Bowers had an OK spring, bad first game and did not improve
5. Thus far neither Brandon McIwain or Chase Garbers have proven to be accurate passers or able to hold onto the ball
6. QB Coach Marquis Tuisosopo needs to find his guy, a pocket passer that will play in the NFL.
7. We need to get more athletic on the OL. We finally have a defense.
8. This is only Year Two for Coach Wilcox, and he is still still building a program.

I am looking for forward to fall 2019.

The tweet was from Bowers himself. There is speculation on when the injury occurred (the injury does not appear to be new), but details on medical stuff is no longer disclosed by the coaching staff. You can go on the insider board to get a sense of what the mods are saying.

The tweet was from a 15 year old who attends the high school where Ross' dad works, not Bowers himself.

I think I read everything there is to read on the insider board and I don't think anything about this is verified. Lots of unanswered questions and hypotheticals, at this point.

Not true. The tweet was from a student at the high school Bowers' father works at.

Regarding Point 8, Wilcox was also put in a really bad spot to start Year 1. Not with an Academic mess or anything, but just with regards to recruiting and putting everything in place.
