Roll on you Bears!
No, I'm not drunk, I'm just celebrating Cal's 26-17 defeat of Stanford in this year's Big Game.
Of course there are no roses.
If the Bears had beaten Arizona (6-6, 4-5) and all other results, including USC's loss to UCLA, remained the same, Cal would be going to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1959. Instead, the Bears settle for a share of the conference title, their first since 1975.Back in the day we were happy when Cal won more than half of their games, so this is good news indeed.
Cal will be playing in Texas A&M in the Holiday Bowl. All I know about TAM is that they aren't the Texas team that makes the devil horns sign, and they are the Texas team that makes a giant bonfire every year (a dozen students were killed at the bonfire a few years ago, so they hold it off campus now). The game has no significance in the greater scheme of things, which, IMHO, is the way it should be. It is only a game.
