    Looks like one of the players Cal was missing due to injury is going to be back just in time for the game Saturday. I'm not sure how good he is, but according to Andy Katz "he is a must if the Bears are going to win the Pac-10." It looks like their other guy who was hurt is going to redshirt.

    I guess most people expected this to be a tough game to win anyway, but after the UNI loss, it seems more important that we leave California with a win.

    FWIW...this probably the best time for a true roadie. Mac's teams have done better after a tough loss.

    2 Years ago...lost at Drake (bad loss)....next game at Oregon State - Won
    Last Year...lost to SDSU (bad loss,at home) -- next game at Houston - Won

    Sometimes getting away and circling the wagons can help. Only thing is...Cal is good. Hope they find some swagger between DSM and Cali....

    Cal is coming off a loss too. They lost last night at New Mexico by 8.

    Ok..So new plan here.

    we go on a run and beat everyone else on our non conference schedule except maybe duke.

    We are 12-3 with 3 decent losses.

    Are we good now?

    Beating Cal would make up for losing to UNI. I kind of expected to be 12-3 after the non-conference games, so I guess I would be happy with that, no matter how it happens.

    I hope Cal doesn't finally wake-up against us.. they have not even been playing close to their ability.. they didn't lose any key players from last year and I watched almost every game they had last year.. damn dangerous team when theyre in rhythm. I don't care who they've lost to.. those boys can play. scary game.

    Depends how they are playing. We are going to open up the B12 season losing 2 out of 3 unless great strides are made.

    If the player has been out for a while, it really shouldn't matter. They'll be out of game-shape, and a little out of rhythym.

    Harper Kamp and Theo Robertson. Both big guys. Kamp is redshirting and Robertson will be back against us. I think Robertson was one of the guys you are talking about, while the other would be Jerome Randle, I believe. I watched him play against Syracuse and he was lights out from 3-range. But as mentioned, who knows how much of a factor Robertson will be after being out for a while.
