Jet Lag: Terps' 12th Man?
This might be something or it might be nothing, but apparently Cal isn't traveling for Saturday's game until Friday, which isn't that unusual except that it's a coast-to-coast trip with a noon kickoff. Eric and I were speculating yesterday about when the Golden Bears would make the trip, and we both figured, given the kickoff, it would be Thursday. But I found this item from the San Jose Mercury-News' Jon Wilner, who doesn't seem to think it's going to make much difference. I had hoped to provide the link but after 25 minutes of wrestling with the paper's Web site (which included two re-starts of my computer and a painful site registration process), I'll just give you the relevant excerpt:
Interestingly, the Bears (2-0) will travel Friday, not Thursday, despite the early kickoff. That looked like a huge gamble on Tedford's part until Maryland's results started rolling in: The Terps barely beat Delaware in their season opener, then lost to Middle Tennessee State. Only a massive letdown and failure to get Jahvid Best out of bed will prevent the Bears from improving to 3-0.
Also, in my morning search for Cal football news, I came across this almost entirely unrelated story that you likely won't see in College Park anytime soon: the construction of a $124 million athletic center on the Berkeley campus being delayed by protesters refusing to leave a redwood tree scheduled to be cut down to clear the site. I don't remember that when Comcast Center was built.
