NCAA Football podcast with Michelle Richardson: Students suspended for throwing garbage on Tennessee field; Letter wants bowl game format not playoffs; Rolovich asks if Bill Gates was involved in making Covid 19 vaccine; plus more

On the NCAAF podcast with Michelle,

#1 Michelle, the Bowls have written a letter asking actually arguing about on campus playoff games and saying that bowl games provide a neutral setting and that the playoffs should be presented much like the traditional bowl system. Michelle could you walk us through what this will mean for bowl games versus playoff games?

#2 Michelle, it was learned before Washington State Cougars head coach Nick Rolovich was fired had seen a Immunologist who tried to “educate” Rolovich about the benefits of taking the double vaccine shot which Rolovich ended not taking and later getting fired by WSU. Dr. Guy Palmer the Immunologist said that Rolovich asked him if Bill Gates was involved in the vaccines which Palmer told him he was not. Rolovich had a number of theories why he didn’t need the vaccine and ended up getting fired from the university.

#3 Michelle, talk about bad sportsmanship the Tennessee Vols fans threw garbage and other debris on the field at Neyland Stadium in Tennessee on Sat Oct 16 after losing to the Ole Miss Rebels 31-26. 16 students and nine fans have been banned until next spring meaning their football season is over. Fans got unruly when Vols running back Jacob Warren on 4th and 24 was ruled short for a first down and the ball was turned over to the Rebels and the garbage came raining down on the field.

On the Cal football podcast with Daniel:

#1 Daniel, in the last two games the Cal Bears (1-4) have convincingly been defeated Sep 25 in Seattle by the Washington Huskies (2-3) 31-24 and Oct 2 by the Washington State Cougars (3-3) 21-6. How much would you allude the loses to a break down in the Cal defense.

#2 In the last game against the Cougars quarterback Jayden de Laura threw for 25-41, 219 yards, three touchdowns, and was intercepted twice.

#3 The Cougars scored two touchdowns in the first quarter and Cal could only answer with six points in the first quarter for all their scoring for the night.

#4 Cal quarterback Chase Garbers just couldn’t get anything going on offense going 14-30, 152 yards, and no touchdowns as Cal was shutout in the second, third and fourth quarters.

#5 The Oregon Ducks (4-1) are next for Cal this Sat Oct 16th. The Ducks lost their last game to the Stanford Cardinal (3-2) 31-24 at Stanford Stadium. The Ducks quarterback Anthony Brown was 14-26, 186 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.

Cal can’t get any offense going drop third straight to WSU 21-6

It’s tough to lose three straight but it’s tougher to lose on your own home field which the Cal Golden Bears (1-4) did at UC Berkeley Memorial Stadium to the Washington State Cougars (2-3) 21-6.

The Cougars quarterback Jayden De Laura threw for three touchdowns, was 25-41 for 219 yards and was intercepted twice but the defense held their ground and De Laura and the offense just got enough scoring for the win.

On one of the two passes from De Laura to wide out Calvin Jackson Jr who made a one handed catch in the end zone at the corner. This was De Laura’s first game back since suffering a leg injury two weeks ago against the USC Trojans.

The 25 completions out of 41 attempts for De Laura tied his career best in a game and it helped the Cougars pick up their first win at Cal since the 2013 season. “It felt fine to go out there,” de Laura said. “I knew I had to bring some energy and do my part. I just gave the receivers and the running backs the ball and let them make plays.”

Jackson Jr had his way with the Cal defense with six receptions for 53 yards Jackson’s teammate wide receiver De’Zhaun Stribling had a pretty decent afternoon himself with four catches for 36 yards and one touchdown.

The Cal offense just sputtered and it was tough especially to lose at home and Bears quarterback Chase Garbers came up empty handed for the afternoon not being able to throw one touchdown, going 14-30 for 152 yards and an interception.

The Bears next opponent the Oregon Ducks (4-1) No.3 next Sat Oct 9 who were just knocked off by the Stanford Cardinal (3-2) 31-24 will be pumped and ready to go and it’s the last thing the Bears want is to walk into a hornets nest which they can expect at Autzen Stadium in Eugene.

Garbers says the Bears need to be prepared and they need to find out who they are, “These next two weeks we’re really going to find out who we are as a team, who we are as people. They had our number, they did a great job and they just outplayed us. That happens.”

Huskies outlast Bears in overtime 31-24 in Seattle

By Morris Phillips and Michael Duca

With the score all knotted up at 24-24 at the University of Washington in the overtime stanza the Washington Huskies (2-2) Cameron Williams and Jackson Sirmon got the Cal Bears (1-3) Damien Moore to fumble at the Huskies one yard line after a hard hit and the Huskies Ryan Bowman jumped on the loose ball for the recovery and what would save the Huskies from facing a second overtime as the Bears were just a yard away from tying up the game.

The officials called for a review to make sure that the fumble was legit and ruled that it was which was unfortunate for the Bears as time and possession would run out for Cal.

The Huskies Seth Mcgrew scored his second touchdown of the game at the beginning of the overtime to give the Huskies a seven point lead and eventual win 31-24. This was the first meeting between the two schools since 2019. Last season the game was cancelled during the Covid 19 crisis. If Cal had won it Saturday it would have been their third straight win in 100 meetings with Washington.

Cal quarterback Chase Garbers in the post game interview said that Moore would like to have that fumble back as Moore was pretty down after the game about coughing up the ball, “Obviously Damien wants that one back. We all do,” said Garbers “Stuff happens in football, you get unlucky sometimes, but we’re a really close group in the locker room so we’re all there for each other.”

Garbers himself had a relatively good game under center throwing for 319 yards 30-41 for two touchdowns and two interceptions. Garbers was picked off twice by the Huskies Kyler Gordon one of the picks happened early in the fourth quarter and the Huskies couldn’t score and Garbers later was able to run a seven yard touchdown with at 2:51 which tied up the game.

The Bears return to UC Berkeley for a Sat Oct 2 meeting at Memorial Stadium with the Washington State Cougars for a 2pm PDT kickoff. The Cougars (1-3) lost in their last game Saturday to the Utah Utes (2-2) 24-13. The Utes scored two unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter as the Cougars defense broke down at Utah.

Stanford’s big 2nd and 3rd quarters route USC 42-28 in the Southland

Stanford Cardinal (1-1) quarterback Tanner McKee threw for two touchdowns, went 16-23 for 234 yards in the Cardinal’s first win of the season over their Southern California opponents the USC Trojans (1-1) 42-28. The Cardinal scored 14 points in each of the second and third quarters that helped lead them to victory.

The Cardinal were coming off a opening day loss from last Sat Sep 6th to Kansas State 24-7 and wanted badly to make amends. They shocked the oddsmakers who had USC favored and who were ranked No.14. The Cardinal’s wide receiver Nathaniel Peat had 115 yards and caught a 87 yard touchdown pass from McKee and the Cardinal Kyu Blue Kelly picked off a USC quarterback Kedon Slovis pass for 31 yards for a touchdown that sparked and inspired the Cardinal in the victory.

Stanford head coach David Shaw had his team prepared this week after the Cardinal took that tough loss to Kansas State and the taste of that game was still in their mouths from opening week and the improved offense on Saturday night against the USC defense made things just a little bit satisfying for Shaw and McKee.

McKee had some good looks from the Kansas State opener after starting quarterback Jack West struggled to start that game. McKee did himself well against USC throwing for touchdowns to receivers Elijah Higgins and Brycen Tremayne in the fourth quarter that put Stanford ahead of USC by 29 points.

This was the Cardinal ninth win out of the last 14 games with the Trojans and the Cardinal defense kept the pressure on Slovis all night who went 27-42 for 223 yards, one touchdown and one interception. USC running backs Keaontay Ingram and Darwin Barlow each carried for a touchdowns but the effort was far short with McKee and the Cardinal pouring it in on offensively all night.

The loss snapped the Trojans nine game winning streak which carried over from last season, the Trojans won their opener on Sep 6th handling a very talented San Jose State team 30-7. That Trojan win looked as if it was going to set the tone for Saturday night’s game against the Cardinal but the Cardinal defense held Slovis and the Trojans offense from any developing opportunities and the Cardinal came into this game after studying film from the Trojans last game.

It was so bad for the Trojans that they even had their kicker Parker Lewis ejected from the game on the opening kick off for targeting his tackle. Despite that back up kicker Alex Stadthaus wound up kicking two field goals and two extra points flawlessly.

Next week USC will head to Pullman and face the Washington State Cougars at 12:30 pm on Sat Sep 18th and Stanford will conclude this three game road trip at Vanderbilt (2-1). The Commodores are coming off a close 24-21 win against Colorado State Saturday. Kickoff between Stanford and Vanderbilt is 5:00 pm PDT Sat Sep 18th.

On the Stanford Cardinal podcast with Jerry F:

#1 Jerry, the Cardinal (14-9) are coming off a tough loss to Washington State (14-10) 85-76 in triple overtime Sat Feb 20th and their last scheduled game against the USC Trojans (19-4) was canceled. The loss to the Cougars a tough one in Pullman.

#2 Normally when you get five players in double figures your chances go up for a win but the Cardinal were outscored and the Cougars defense just held them in check to stay ahead.

#3 The Cougars had come off a win against the Cal Bears the Tuesday before they faced the Cardinal. WSU had four scorers in double figures but key factor was Noah Williams who wound up the lead scorer with 40 points an impressive total in college basketball.

#4 The Cougars defense was able to contain Oscar da Silva who scored only 11 points and Michael O’Connell was the Cardinal lead scorer with 17.

#5 The Oregon Ducks (14-9) are at Stanford tonight. The Ducks got whipped by USC in their last game 72-58 Monday night in Los Angeles. The Cardinal play host and after getting beat by the Cougars their going to be pressing too. Jerry, how do you see this match up tonight.

On the Bears podcast with Morris:

#1 The flight from the state of Washington for the Cal Bears (8-17) was only two hours but it had to feel like eight as Cal got served up another cold dish of rough basketball in their loss to their standings neighbors the Washington Huskies (5-17) in Saturday night’s 62-51 loss at Alaskan Airlines Arena in Seattle.

#2 The loss pretty much assures that Cal will finish in last place in the Pac 12 for this season. The Bears will need a miracle as they have two more games left at home.

#3 The Bears suffered their worse shooting performance of the year 27 percent and lost the game by 31 points. The Huskies turned up the defense and Cal just couldn’t hit their shots.

#4 Quade Green led the Huskies in scoring with 17 points and Jamal Bey followed up with 15 points on an offense that gave Cal fits all night.

#5 The Bears return home on Thursday night to close out their regular season facing Oregon State (8-17). Saturday Feb 27 will be their last game of the season at Haas Pavilion against the Oregon Ducks (14-4) third in the Pac 12.

It took three overtimes, but Washington State finally outlasted Stanford 85-76 Saturday afternoon in Pac-12 men’s basketball at Beasley Coliseum in Pullman, Wash.

The win snapped Washington State’s nine game losing streak to the Cardinal.

Michael O’Connell set a Stanford record by playing 52 minutes; he also scored 17 points, and picked up six rebounds and seven assists.

Jaiden Delaire scored 15 points for the Cardinal, followed by Daejon Davis and Spencer Jones with 10 points each. Oscar da Silva – the Pac-12’s second-leading scorer (19.1 ppg) – was held to 11 points before he fouled out in the second overtime.

Noah Williams topped the Cougars’ scoring column with 40 points. Williams was 12 of 35 from the field – including 8 of 18 on 3-pointers – and 8 of 10 at the foul line. His 40 points were the most for a Cougar since Klay Thompson made 43 in 2011.

WSU (14-10 overall, 7-10 Pac-12) used a 9-0 run to close out the third overtime. In that spurt, Efe Abogidi scored five points, Aljaz Kunc had a basket, and Williams capped the run with a floater in the paint.

Williams hit a 3-pointer with six seconds remaining to send the contest into overtime. The Cardinal had the ball with 25 seconds left in the first overtime, but committed a shot-clock violation.

The teams were tied at 63-63 at the end of regulation, 68-68 after the first overtime, and 76-76 at the end of the second OT.

Stanford (14-9 overall, 10-7 Pac-12) outshot the Cougars 52 percent to 36 percent from the field, but WSU outrebounded Stanford 48-36, made six more 3s, and was 18 of 23 on free throws while the Cardinal was 9 of 18 at the line.

The Cougars also had 24 second-chance points to three for Stanford, and WSU outscored the Cardinal in the paint 40-20. There were 10 lead changes.

The Cardinal return to Maples Pavilion to host Oregon on Thursday.

Cal Bears podcast with Michael Duca: Washington State demolishes Cal 82-51; Williams coverts 32 for WSU

On the Bears podcast with Michael:

#1 After the Cal Bears (8-16) had a huge victory over the Colorado Buffaloes last Saturday things turned for the worse at Washington State and the Cougars had their way with a convincing 82-51 win on Thursday night.

#2 Matt Bradley led the way in scoring for the Bears with 16 and Andre Kelly followed up with 10 points and both were the only ones in double figures.

#3 No way Noah Williams of the Cougars had 32 points no way because there was no way the defense could have shut him down as Williams worked his way through the Cal defense even in the paint.

#4 Michael when you see someone like that having his way with the defense would it have helped if head coach Mark Fox had double teamed Williams?

#5 It’s onto Seattle and the Washington Huskies (4-17) who have lost seven of their last eight games and the Cal Bears have lost nine of their last ten games both teams clash on Saturday at 7:00pm at UW.
