    Cal's Coach Report

    A much needed bye week for this Cal team. After a tough loss to Maryland in week 1, another tough loss to the Gophers in week 3 and back to back conference losses the team needed a break to get some things turned around. The coach stated that changes would be made in week 7 to try and get the team going back in the right direction. Whether this means changes to the lineup or a new game plan has yet to be determined. With many more tough matches approaching Cal needs to make some big changes on both offense and defense.

    On the recruiting trail the Bear's poor play on the field so far has not impacted the team's ability to recruit top talent. The team has already locked up a 4-star CB. Coach stated he is hopeful this recruit can help the team stop Aaron "Joe Montana" Corp and the Trojans wide receivers. Many other top prospects are also showing interest in the school, but winning games during the prospects visits will be very crucial.

    After several weeks away from the team for personal reasons the Cal coach returned to the bench this week. Unfortunately his return was accompanied with another heart breaking loss by the Golden Bears. The game came down to the final minute but a late INT on 4th and goal killed Cal's chance of knocking off a tough Arizona Wildcat's teams.

    Things are not looking much better on the recruiting side. The assistant coaches did a poor job in keeping up with top recruits and it will take an amazing finish on the trail to strengthen this class. Currently the school is sitting on one recruit and several top recruits look like they may be signing with other Pac-10 teams in the near future. Making matters worse several top recruits witnessed the loss to Arizona.

    In some good news an 0-9 Stanford team is the Bear's next foe, followed by a game against Washington. With bowl hopes long since crushed the team is simply playing for pride.

    Week 12 brought a much needed win to the Bears teams, but Stanford put up a lot of fight for an 0-11 team. Offensively Stanford moved the ball at will against the Cal defense, but kick coverage problems helped Cal steal the win from the Cardinals. Best was the hero of the game, rushing for one score and returning three kickoffs for TD's.

    On the recruiting trail several of the team's top prospects signed with other schools this week, as expected. During the team's bye next week the assistant coaches will be back on the trail trying to gain information on some of the best available prospects. The team does still have some talent on its recruiting board and the head coach will be focused on getting these players to sign.

    With a bye game next week the report will be focused on the team's recruiting pursuits. Expect a detailed report of all recruiting news in that report.

    Another prolonged absence ahead for Coach Bravejaf. Hopefully the assistant coaches can land some decent recruits while the head coach attends to some personal matters.
