See, every year the Cal Bears seem to start number seven or three and just fall apart as the season wears on. This weekend was a great example to why the Bears don't deserve to be ranked in the top 10.

I think the bear’s defense has top ten potential but they definitely fell apart against the Ducks offense. Though Oregon didn't seem to hit on all cylinders the ducks still seemed to breeze past the Cal Bears. Jerimah Masoli tossed 25 balls and 21 were grabbed by his trusty receivers. Looking ahead the Oregon Ducks have an easy W against Wazzu and there wretched offense.

Though the California Bears are a different story... Javid Best's hesiman hopes definitely took two steps backwards. He was handed the ball only 16 times and scraped only 55 yards out on the ground. Also a worry point for the Bears was there quarterback Kevin Riley’s performance he only completed 38% of his passes which is unacceptable for a starting quarterback on a number 6 ranked team. The Golden Bears have a huge game against USC this upcoming week. Both teams are coming of major upset in the previous couple of games and it will be interesting to see how the teams respond.
