Live blogging for LA Tech

Posted by Eric | September 15, 2007 at 2:37 pm | In Games |

Here we go. Let’s hope for no injuries, solid play, and over 50 points on the board for the Bears in a convincing win.

3:34p: That was FAST. A nice fake hand-off between Lavelle Hawkins and Brandon Hampton sets up the Hawk returning over 90 yards for a touchdown on the opening kickoff.

3:39p: The Bears’ defense suffocates the Bulldog’s first offensive drive with a three and out, topped off by a monster sack by DE Cody Jones. Looks like he hit the quarterback so hard that he’s a little dazed himself.

3:45p: Cal’s offense moves the ball but they seem to be struggling to get settled. QB Nate Longshore gets hit and almost loses the ball, with lineman Mike Gibson saving a turnover. A solid punt by P Andrew Larson puts LA Tech in tough field position.

3:50p: Pac-10 refs strike again. A horrible call (confirmed on review somehow) steals a potential turnover when S Tom DeCoud hits an LA Tech receiver and the ball pops out. The announcers: “I don’t know how you can possibly confirm that call.”

3:59p: The offense isn’t clicking.

4:12p: The CLEAR reception by Robert Jordan is taken away by the officials. The announcers agree that the call is totally wrong, and they point out his hands are undeniably under the ball. What is going on here?

4:35p: Cal takes advantage of a nice turnover with Forsett taking the ball in for a touchdown.

4:45p: Nice offensive drive by the Bears. Things are picking up for the offense.

4:54p: CB Brandon Hampton brings in a great interception, setting up a quick drive into the endzone. TE Craig Stevens recovers from dropping a pass and brings in one for a touchdown.

5:40p: The defense allows an LA tech drive for a touchdown, but stops the two-point conversion. As a side note, #11 UCLA just dropped 44-6 to unranked Utah. The day is not shaping up well for the Pac-10.

5:49p: RB Jahvid Best turns on the jets and runs a quick route to pick up a pass for the endzone. He also had a nice looking kickoff return to set up the drive.

6:24p: The pounding continues, and Forsett tacks on another touchdown set up by a nice run by Best.

6:40p: We got a few looks of #2 QB Kevin Riley as the second team offense took the field. It looks like it was a good experience for the backup to get a few game snaps in case he’s needed later in the season.

6:48p: Well, that’s it. Cal looks pretty good with a 42-12 win.

  1. Longshore really disappointing today.

  2. Shouldn’t Jahvid be getting more touches? Every time he does, something great usually happens. Well, except for that little slip towards the end…

    Hopefully we worked out the kinks before Pac-10 play. Go Bears!

  5. I’ve been watching Cal football since well before you were born and I’m hoping to go to onr more ROSE BOWL before I die. I believe there is a great chance of that happening this year IF TEDFORD ALLOWS FOR THE UTILIZATION OF MORE THAN JUST ONE SCREEN PASS PER GAME! (So far every time a screen pass has been called there has been a gain of more than 40 yards.) This appears to be one of the best ways to capitaize on the breakaway speed of this year’s runners. Please, if you can, whisper in his ear for me.

  6. Longshore needs more practice so he’ll stop throwing the long shots too high (which he does repeatedly). Maybe its a good idea to keep the ball away from Jackson so he doesn’t have a chance to look so good this year. Then he may not be in such demand by the pros and we’d have him for another year. Besides, we’ve got all the talent we need this year without him.

  7. Isn’t there some way when Cal is receiving a punt
    to stop the players from the punting team from geting to the punt receiver by stoping them at the line of scrimmage instead of havin our players retreat and attempt to throw blocks further down the field? Is there any better play than that which allows a speed burning punt receiver to have a bit of open field in which to show his stuff?

  8. Tedford sometimes allows us to have the opportunity to see some “razzle/dazzle” plays which, even if they don’t work, make the game much more interesting to watch. Reverses, end arounds, lateral/pass plays, flea flickers and maybe even a naked reverse (if he could teach Longshore to move his body) make the game much more interesting-especially when the spectators have difficulty figuring out where the ball is. I remember this was the way it was when we had the T Formations to watch. By the way, what ever happened to the idea of a QUICK KICK on third and long? This is a great play against which there is no defense!

  9. If the best defense is offense how can we get our defensive players to become a little more offensive? Perhaps it would be a good idea to feed them some limburger cheese and train them how to breath on our opponents with heavy breaths and/or stick out their tongues and wiggle them as do the Maori when confronting the enemy. (If it works for them-why not?). Or , maybe just feed our guys all the broccoli,beans,califlower and brussel sprouts and let nature take its course.
