That is what happened. I'm pretty sure Longshore did not throw another pass in that game after the injury happened. We got an INT after that and fortunately Forsett was able to pound it in for us for the go-ahead TD.

We will get clownstomped by OSU for the same reason we got clownstomped at Nevada, at Maryland, and at Tennessee. I'm not sure exactly what that reason is, but I'm pretty familiar with the result.

Again showing Ted Miller knows very little. I don't know anything about OSU, and certainly a team with a weak O Line can have trouble (and thus cause turnovers) vs a formidable front 7 (not so sure Cal qualifies as having one), but he talks about Cal's prospects as if he never watched this team play last year.

We never had a double digit lead in that game.

It's funny, because in the RR/AR year, JT was willing to bring AR along to replace RR as the starter -- and in the game against USC he was willing to pull AR in the 2nd half and let RR finish the victory.

Miller knows us well. In fact, he is LIKE many of us. He has seen a lot, yet he continues to have that hope for the Bear team just like we do. Hopefully, for all of us, he is right.

Agree with this. Miller knows the Pac pretty well and pokes fun at each fanbases' specific personality. He's mentioned our ability to face plant many, many times, but never in a cruel way.

I hope we finally prove him right one of these days. I think every other pundit is out of our corner until we can prove something.

Miller will look like a genius with his Cal predictions. As Red said in Shawshank Redemption, "I hope".

Actually, it was our victory over the eventual national champion Trojan team of 2003 followed by our very close loss on the road the following year against an even better Trojan team that we rode for 3-5 years.
