SAN FRANCISCO -- Fall camp is over. The finishing touches are being put onto the brand new California Memorial Stadium. The helmets are being polished, the laces tightened, pre-game iPod psych-up mixes are being compiled as we speak. It's football season, and the California Golden Bears are about to return home.
In this week's Bear Republic Podcast, the crew breaks down the Bears' opening day opponent - Nevada - in every which way possible. How will Cal defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast stop the pistol? How will Jeff Tedford's offense look? Will the largely-new offensive line gel earlier this year than last? What kind of weapons does senior quarterback Zach Maynard have at his disposal?
We answer those questions and more in this first podcast of the 2012 football season.
In our second segment, we break down the other big event on campus this weekend -- the official visit of five-star hoops prospect Jabari Bird and the two unofficial visitors coming along with him: five-star forward Aaron Gordon and five-star big man Marcus Lee.
How important is it to snare some of the best hoops prospects to come through the Bay Area prep ranks in years? Is Bird indeed the lynchpin? Find out as we discuss that in-depth in our second hour.
To prepare for Saturday's season opener, BearTerritory has assembled all of the previews from this week in one convenient place, along with all the best content from fall camp, available below.
