thebowl.challenge: Cal won a bowl game!
I'm still not sure that I believe it, either, but that's what the scoreboard says. Tedford now has his biggest win since 2003, and Cal's first victory over a better-than-bad non-Pac 10 team since forever. Welcome to 2007's preseason top-5, Bars. I can't wait to see how you blow it.
In other semi-news, we had some shaking up in the challenge, even as then-clubhouse-leader Jeff had a 2-1 day. Wha happen? Well, we can now see; since the picks are locked and final, everyone can look at everyone else's picks. And current leader "T. Lyon" got extremely fat off of Rutgers and Cal, his/her 32- and 24-point games, respectively. Other big movers last night: Break of Dawn (3-0 for 42 points), Joanna (2-1 for 41 points), and new-ish blogtributor Dur (3-0 for 50 points). But the biggest mover of the day was current #2 Schill, who went 3-0, accumulating 68(!) points. That's a shitload of confidence on Rutgers and Cal (31 and 27), and apparently it was well worth it. Would that we were all so enlightened.
So I have very little to say about an afternoon and evening that featured three blowouts, one of which eventually turned into the bowl season's current frontrunner for "best game," due entirely to special teams fuckups by Oak State. But the 'Pokes ended up winning, ruining John Tanner Cody Parker Esteemed Penis Mansome Jefferson Wilson the 3rd, Esq.'s big trip to, uh, Shreveport. Lovely Shreveport.
Oh, and Pittman and Wells are fine and will be playing in the Not Fiesta Bowl. Huzzah. But you're still stupid, guys.
