Over the last 10 years, Cal Bears football has been mediocre. This upcoming season fans are expecting more of the same.
With Zach Maynard penciled in as the starter (for now), the Bears will have a hard time coming out on top of the Pac-12 North.

This slide show will pinpoint what is holding the Bears back, and suggest how they can get to the next level.
