Yes. Espn is fine. Just not Cal competitors (Rivals, 247, or Scout). Not sure about goldenblogs.

That was one of the more enjoyable games I've ever been to, even better than some of the early Tedford era games.

Once Zach Follett grabbed the mic in front of the student section, the D was unbreakable. I am so damn happy with the way this team played-even with some of the bad play calling (which will get fixed).. It's a new era Bear fans. Enjoy it!

per ap (as published on espn.com),
"The Golden Bears withstood two long TD passes by Rebels quarterback Shea Patterson but didn't allow a score over the final 43 minutes to end the nonconference season undefeated."

How can we be the stronger/tougher team without t-shirts telling us that?
