Cal will Adjust to Time Difference in Cali
Cal Coach Jeff Tedford just talked on a conference call about adjusting to the 9 a.m. start for Saturday's game against Maryland. Tedford said the Golden Bears will wake up early Thursday and go to bed early Thursday night, then fly Friday to the East Coast. Tedford had thought about flying here Thursday but felt there would be too much time sitting around before Saturday's game.
"We are going to get acclimated here," Tedford said.
Tedford also said Jahvid Best has tremendous speed, so when he gets in the open field "he is tough to deal with." Tedford had been using Best more and more in the offense last season, until best suffered a serious hip injury late in the season and missed the final three games. But Tedford made clear that he is not surprised with Best's start to this season, which has been very impressive.
"It was evident, and everyone really knew what he could do with the ball in his hands," Tedford said.
