Thanks, I forgot you could do that. My Ignore List has a new, and sole, member. Life's too short to waste time reading angry ravings of small people.

Why write these hurtful things? These are Cal players who presumably did as well as they could, and you attack them behind a fictitious name. Not very courageous!

What he did was a brain freeze of epic proportions. Running for the end zone and getting tackled at like the 5 yard line (not even close to scoring) without any timeouts left and the game ticking away?? And then picking up the ball and running away with it toward the sideline?

That's a panic job and a monumental chokejob in Cal's biggest game that season and biggest opportunity to join the elite football clubs in years, maybe decades. You can forgive and forget. I won't. It would be hysterical if it hadn't been so horrendously awful.
That was NOT our biggest game that season.

He is not. Longshore was clearly better than Riley.

There is a reason it's called a "freshman mistake." Keep in mind that it was his first start since high school (where, since the game is slower, he may have been able to make the necessary yardage).

I agree with your sentiments.

What kind of dolt rags on kids who played a game for fun (none of these guys made the pros) years ago. I'm proud of everyone who has donned the Blue and Gold and played for my Alma Mater. I've seen every home game for for almost 50 years and read of their predecessors. Excellent young men, all of them.

These unhealthy obsessions belong elsewhere. Here we should celebrate our team, lament losses, relive victories, anticipate the future.

In a what have you done for me lately world, Super Stinky K Riley is the worst, followed by Aboob.

Amended, upon further recollection (Vedder = Aboob = (Riley/(Super K/Super Stink)) < Levy < Longsuck < Robertson <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Rodgers <<<<<<Maynard (Hopefully)).


If Maynard > Rodgers = BCS National Championship for the Golden Bears! = Can I get a hot tub!?!

How classy of you to trash our Golden Bear quarterbacks like they killed your dog.

+1. Not to mention that none of these kids are getting paid, unlike their USC counterparts. (And the money that you lost on Cal when they screwed up isn't the same thing as a salary.) Plus Ayoob wasn't even supposed to be the starter in 2005.

I'd love to hear someone justify what good comes out of courageously calling out our Cal QBs, other than "it lets me vent my frustrations about living in my parents' basement."

Anyone who seriously responded to this thread is guilty of silently endorsing this kind of asshattery.

Actually, J Torchio - 10-11-2010, 11:32 AM

In my time watching Bears football, Torchio was the worst, followed closely by Ayoob. Riley is slowly approaching Ayoob territory... I hope he doesn't make it all the way there this season.

You go on and keep being sarcastic. Was hoping for more from a Cal fan.
