Roll on Golden Bears, Tedford Could Leave over Stadium
California resoundingly defeated New Mexico 41-14 in the first home game of the season. CalBears captures the mood here at Berkeley:
The Bears drew 58,949, the largest crowd for a Cal home opener in school history by nearly 3,000 fans. Third-year coach Jeff Tedford has changed the spirits in a hurry for students who in recent years would have rather wandered the downtown streets checking out handmade crafts than spend a Saturday afternoon watching football.
Our next game will be Thursday night, and it will be nationally televised.
Here is star running back, J.J. Arrington, showing off his moves with the band,
In other news, Tedford's contract stipulates that certain improvements must be made to the stadium. ESPN has the story:
Tedford, who has led the Bears to two winning seasons, has a buyout clause in his contract that drops from $1 million to $500,000 if ground isn't broken by the end of the year. The amount would be zero if the same situation exists at the end of next year.According to the article, the current facilities:
-only allow one quarter of the team to use the weight room at one time
-only have room for either the offense or defense to meet at any one time
-require some players to share lockers
There is no reaction from Tedford in the article.
