SPORTS! on San Fransanity

Yeah, you know it
You know the story
Tell the whole damn world
This is Bear Territory!

Yesssss! Sweet revenge for Cal on this day as the Bears beat Tennessee in what turned out to be an awesome game. Cal set the pace for most of the game, but the momentum shifted in the second half, with Tennessee starting to close in. After a long injury time out due to a Tennessee player almost breaking his neck, the Vols got the ball back on the goal line and looked to have a shot at maybe possibly mounting a comeback. That lasted for three plays. And it was all over. Final score - 45-31.

Deshawn Jackson made one of the greatest punt return touchdowns you will ever see. It will be all over SportsCenter tonight and for many months to come. Don't miss it!

ABC Announcer Brent Musburger couldn't resist making fun of the hippies squatting in the oak trees. He actually sounded angry about it on a few occasions. Cranky old man. You're in Berkeley, square... get used to it!

All in all, though, it wasn't a bad job by ABC. They have an SEC bias - as does SportsCenter, the BCS, and everyone else in college football - but they didn't let it get in the way too often. And, to be fair, Tennessee did make a very good showing. The bastards.

Roll On You Bears!!!
