Ted Agu, died during conditioning drill. Confirmed at the hospital. Cal has already announced it. One of those kids who was a walk-on and earned a scholarship with hard work. R.I.P.

most of these turn out to be an heart arrhythmia, like what happened to hank gathers.
Team physician Dr. Casey Batten said the medical staff saw he had difficulty completing the workout and he was transferred by cart about 150 yards to the stadium.

''He was on the back of the cart, he was talking, he was hydrating, he did not exhibit any labored breathing or other signs until he got to the north tunnel,'' Batten said.

He then collapsed when he got to the medical facility at the Simpson Center at the stadium around 7 a.m. and emergency medical personnel were alerted and Agu was given CPR. He was quickly taken to Alta Bates Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

You will be eating these words next season, alds...

hmmm...why not relevant?

You still see threads about Dirk Koetter on ASU boards and he hasn't coached there in 7-8 years. You will still see Frank Kush threads even though he hasn't coached in 35 years. Or threads on Bruce Snyder and what went wrong under him (he coached the Rose Bowl team with Jake Plummer).

Face it, Cal fans are touchy about Tedford because they fear it may be true it was a big mistake to let him go, no other reason to be so touchy about it.

Can't be more wrong about it. At least when it comes to me. I've said all along I'm not overreacting to last season. Dykes has an incomplete grade in my book. My beef with bill is mostly about the fact that he has a CLEAR agenda when it comes to Tedford and JT is ALL he posts about.

legitimate point
Brendan Bigelow is CURSED. Pulled his hammy at the mid point of his 40 at Cal's pro day.

Still ran a 4.48 though

Stepping down? She got CANNED! Just what she deserved!

v, I love you, but you're wrong. It's not just about Tedford. It's about the state of Cal football and watching a Golden Bear alum suffer during football season. You've got to admit, that's no fun.

But we do have tix for the home opener against Sac State! Guaranteed win????? Mebbe????
Didn't some of you want this guy on the Cal Roster? I seem to remember some angst here. Still feeling it?

lol I'll never justify hitting a woman but in the grand scheme of things that's a very minor incident and I'd be shocked if he missed significant time, if any. He's still an elite RB and yes I'd take him on the squad in a second. Kids make mistakes, it looks like he reacted the wrong way in a moment and now will have to respond. Not like he robbed or was passed out on drugs/alcohol.

Bill,

As a long time CAL fan, I can hear what you are saying but come on bro...you are in here posting like your wife is suffering from first to worst syndrome. Quit acting like CAL was the head of the class in college football and you were continually exposed to greatness. Even during the Tedford era, which was a success overall, we still disapointed overall in the biggest spots. So lets be honest, you are biased and it effects your thoughts on CAL.

Having said that, I wouldn't have minded keeping Tedford, but we didnt. So I will get behind our new coach, and he gets a pass from me because it wasnt his players. And he inherited a s**tty QB situation because Tedford failed to develop QBs the last few years and instead wasted relationship playing time on Zack. The QB guru failed to deliver QBs. Plain and simple. CAL was a RB school the last years of Tedford's run.

So everybody inhale, relax, and lets see what this guy can do before we start pretending we replaced Bear Bryant with Josh McDaniels.

Go CAL
