Jeff Tedford will one day be part of California football lore, but for now the coach seems to be close to the hotseat.
He certainly deserves the questioning because of how the Golden Bears have performed lately. This season will determine a great deal about his future.
Make or break usually means a decision quickly follows. But in the case of Tedford, this year is make or break in a longer-term sense.
Since his current contract doesn't finish up until 2015, he won't be leaving until then.
But how he steers the program after recent faltering will help Sandy Barbour and Co. figure out if he'll stick around for years to come.
This slideshow will first chronicle the rise of Tedford, which is important to understand when considering his future. Then it will delve into the recent trouble and finish with why this year will be different.
