Posing during their Gameday photo shoot, Sean Cattouse, Zach Maynard and Isi Sofele do not look to be on the same page. Sean is trying to act tough and Isi is smiling about something. No idea what Zach is doing.


Pac-12 Power Rankings: Week 5

NORTH DIVISON No. 1: Stanford (4-0, 2-0) The Cardinal are still sitting pretty at the top of the Pac-12 with a spotless record, and Andrew Luck has gotten so bored playing quarterback that he spotted at wideout in a 45-19 win over UCLA. Even after losing linebacker Shayne Skov for the season,

Cal defense disappoints after stellar 2010

Down 31-23 with one drive left, Jeff Tedford made the sort of call no one could have imagined him making just a year ago — he went for it on fourth down. And this was a risky one, a fourth-and-3 with Cal pinned on its own 20. There were about
