On the Cal Bears basketball podcast with Michael:

#1 When you just sit back and look at that score the Cal Bears (11-15) 78 and the Oregon Ducks (16-8) 64 a game that was played at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene on Saturday night it’s shocking but yes it’s real.

#2 The win on Saturday in Eugene was Cal’s second win in this two game Oregon trip taking two games at Oregon State and Oregon. Previous to the win on Thursday at Oregon State Cal had lost ten straight games. What changed?

#3 The Bears guard Jordan Shepherd on Saturday was the only Cal player to score in double figures with 33 points which quite remarkable if you consider Cal winning by 14 points so it looks like all Shepherd all the time.

#4 What also was remarkable was the first half Sunday where the Bears scored a 38-22 lead going into half time and you could see the shock on the faces on Ducks fans and Ducks bench.

#5 The Bears next take on the Colorado Buffaloes (15-9) on Thursday night at Haas Pavilion. The Buffaloes have won their last two games and have won four of their last ten games. Colorado defeated the Utah Utes (9-16) 81-76 in their last game on Saturday night.

Golden Bears dominate hapless Buffs 26-3 for first Pac-12 win

Saturday, October 23, 2021

California was looking for an opportunity to snag that first football win of the season over an FBS opponent, and achieved that goal with a 26-3 win over Colorado in a Pac-12 game at Berkeley.

Golden Bears quarterback Chase Garbers completed 22 of 29 for 225 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Garbers also ran for 96 yards, moving into first place on Cal’s career rushing chart for quarterbacks, passing Joe Kapp.

The defensive standout for Cal (2-5 overall, 1-3 Pac-12) was safety Elijah Hicks, who recorded six tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, picked off one pass and had one of the Bears’ six sacks.

Buffaloes quarterback Brendan Lewis was 9 of 17 for 69 yards. He had a minus-9 yards rushing.
The Bears were off and running early. Garbers scrambled for 38 yards on a third-and-6 from the Cal 30, leading to a Dario Longhetto 49-yard field goal with 9:47 left in the first quarter. That put the Bears ahead to stay.
Minutes later, Colorado (2-5 overall, 1-3 Pac-12) drove to the Cal 49 before Buffaloes running back Jarek Broussard was stopped for a 1-yard loss on fourth-and-1.

That stop of Colorado on downs led to Garbers throwing a 24-yard scoring strike to freshman tight end Keleki Latu, giving the Bears a 10-0 lead at 6:05 of the opening period.

Longhetto booted a 30-yard field goal at 9:23 of the second quarter, putting Cal up 13-0. After Brenden Rice (son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice) returned a kickoff 67 yards to the Cal 33, Cole Becker connected on a 33-yard field goal.
With 3:21 to play in the second quarter, Garbers threw a TD pass to Gavin Reinwald. Longhetto hit a 51-yard field goal on the final play of the quarter, putting the Bears up 23-3 at halftime. Cal scored on each of its possessions in the first half and outgained the Buffs 297-91 in total yards.

The Bears host Oregon State next Saturday, with a 4 p.m. kickoff. The Beavers (5-2 overall, 3-1 Pac-12) beat Utah 42-34 in their last game.

On the Cal Bears podcast with Daniel:

#1 Daniel the Cal Bears (1-5) have had a tough time of it with five loses in the loss column Bears head coach Justin Wilcox trying to figure things out on both sides of the ball.

#2 The Oregon Ducks (5-1) Cal’s last opponent won by a touchdown. The Ducks scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and that pretty much was the difference in the 24-17 loss.

#3 The Ducks a formidable opponent didn’t give much breathing room to the Bears on both sides of the ball and on offense Ducks quarterback Anthony Brown threw 20-28, 244 yards, only one touchdown pass but it was big since the Ducks won by a touchdown.

#4 Bears quarterback Chase Garbers had a decent afternoon against the Ducks last week 25-43, 247 yards, and two touchdowns. No doubt Garbers was airing it out but couldn’t convert a lot of his pass attempts.

#5 The Bears will play the first of two home games starting with the Colorado Buffaloes (2-4) this Sat Oct 23 at Cal. Daniel which Buffaloes team is going to show up the team that got slaughtered in a laugher to USC 37-14 on Oct 2? Or the team that won in a laugher last Sat Oct 16th in Colorado shutting out Arizona (0-6) 34-0.

Cal Bears podcast with Morris Phillips: City of Berkeley celebrates big as Bears beat big team

Cal Bears and Colorado Buffaloes final score from Sat Feb 13, 2021 at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley (photo by CUBuffsMBB.com)

On the Cal Bears podcast with Morris:

#1 Morris talk about Justice Sueing and Connor Vanover who left Cal and could have been seniors on this year’s team. If they both were still here what would this Cal team be like.

#2 It’s was college basketball’s version of Joy in Mudville on Saturday night as the Cal Bears (8-15) got in the win column for the first time in eight games snapping a seven game losing streak.

#3 The challenge wasn’t going to be easy either as the Bears faced a tough competitor the Colorado Buffaloes (16-6) and had struggled with some injuries and loses and the odds didn’t look that great before Saturday’s tip off.

#4 The Cal Bears Matt Bradley led Cal in scoring with 29 points and this was a game when you looked at past games during the losing streak and Bradley wasn’t in the line up you could see the difference.

#5 How much of a surprise was it that second place scorer Jalen Celestine who scored 13 points in the winning effort we haven’t heard much of Celestine this year but he really came through against Colorado.

#6 Was this game a matter of a bad team catching a good team?

#7 Cal heads to Washington State this Saturday and the road has been rough for Cal how do you see this match up as the Cougars have been playing some great games this season as this game is Pullman?
