New senate convenes, sets goals By Victoria Pardini | Staff firstname.lastname@example.org
By Adelyn Baxter | Staff email@example.com If hardcore Cal fans were disappointed by the news that Cal football would be moving from Memorial Stadium to AT&T Park for the 2011 season, imagine the dismay of countless Berkeley business owners who would otherwise take advantage of the hoards of hungry spectators flooding the campus and surrounding streets. With the first game of the year Saturday at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, most restaurants surrounding Memorial Stadium anticipate a drop in sales, with some even adjusting their opening hours or canceling traditional game day events due to the change. Both Northside restaurants Urbann Turbann and La Burrita are considering changing their Saturday hours due to the expected absence of weekend crowds. Urban Turbann may not even open. “It’s a disappointment that they’re doing it over there,” said La Burrita owner Izat Eliyan. “We understand with the retrofits and everything, but every year we look forward to home games.” On Southside, Hotel Durant and the adjacent Henry’s Pub — which have held home game tailgating events in past years — will not be holding any Saturday events beyond the typical public viewing on TVs in Henry’s, but they are not ruling out the possibility of future events if there is public demand. The hotel’s General Manager Will Jones said fans should check out Henry’s website for updates throughout the season. “We’re expecting it to be insane in 2012 with the new stadium and a powerhouse lineup,” Jones said. Top Dog will also be playing it by ear — employee Frank Brown said the restaurant will wait to see what gameday turnout is to decide whether or not to have its usual express lane next to their store on Durant Avenue to serve customers. He said the company attempted to get permission to have a stand in AT&T Park, but their request was not approved. Although fewer students will be attending games this season, at least 3,700 students — compared to the usual 6,500 student season passes typically sold for Memorial Stadium — will still make their way to San Francisco for the games. So while Berkeley restaurants are bracing for a slowdown, businesses around AT&T Park are anticipating the benefits of having an influx of hungry college sports enthusiasts wandering the streets around the stadium. “Assuming the games sell out, we expect about a 30 percent increase in business on game days compared to our normal Saturday dinner,” said Jon D’Angelica, owner of Ironside, a restaurant just around the corner from the park. For those staying in Berkeley on gameday, Bear’s Lair Pub is planning to hold the first of many fall Cal football viewing parties this Saturday. According to Owner Sal Erakat, the pub’s license allows them to utilize the Bear’s Lair Food Court space behind the establishment, which will be filled with flat screen TVs and thirsty Bears fans. “We want to create a home environment for students and fans to gather and watch the game together,” Erakat said. “We hope to make it the next best thing after going to the actual game.” Dave Fogarty, the city of Berkeley’s economic development project coordinator, said he believes the lack of spectators brought to Berkeley for home games will have different effects on local business, not all of which will be negative. “No doubt it will harm the restaurants because they get a lot of business from Cal fans. But at the same time, there won’t be as many visitors swamping parking facilities around town and making it difficult for regular customers to get access to other stores on gamedays,” Fogarty said. Parking has been a constant frustration in the past on gamedays, when the already sparse parking options available around Memorial Stadium overflow, resulting in excessive illegal parking and massive amounts of traffic. “It’s a trade-off. Hotels and restaurants will probably suffer, but on the other hand it makes access easier for other businesses,” he said.
ASUC senators gathered for the first meeting of the school year to discuss various campus issues.
ASUC senators opened the year’s inaugural meeting Wednesday night with brief discussions about impending campus issues — including the Lower Sproul Plaza renovation and further tuition increases — and executive goals for the academic year. The roughly six-hour senate meeting — which according to Executive Vice President Chris Alabastro was much shorter than initial senate meetings in past years — touched on various upcoming changes, such as the renovation, economic strains on students and the redesign of the ASUC website, which Alabastro said he hopes will launch in a few weeks following minor adjustments. In the first of two guest presentations, Academic Senate chair and campus physics professor Bob Jacobsen said he is interested in working with the ASUC in his capacity as chair and that he is tired of “playing defense” for the university. “We have problems, and we have to deal with them,” he said at the meeting. “But we shouldn’t say, ‘How are we going to be 80 percent of what we were five years ago?,’ but ‘How can we be better than we are 10 years from now?’” Alyosha Verzhbinsky, the consulting architect on the renovation project, gave the senators an overview of the plaza reconstruction, adding that he plans to present new information about developments in the construction process to the senate later in the semester. He said the phasing of the project — which is still undecided — will determine surge space. The ASUC is also planning to organize a

Adobe software program to cost $500,000 Check Online
Alisha Azevedo explains how and why the university is now able to offer Adobe products to students, faculty and staff.
By Alisha Azevedo | Staff firstname.lastname@example.org This fall, UC Berkeley will begin a year-long program for students that will allow them to download Adobe software packages for free as part of an agreement with the company that will cost the campus about $500,000. Beginning Sept. 6, students will be able to download the Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium software — which includes programs such as InDesign and Flash — as part of a pilot program funded by the Operational Excellence Productivity Suite project, which aims to save on the cost of buying widely-used software. However, should students wish to have access to the software beyond its pilot year, they will need to vote on whether to pay a fee through a spring student technology referendum. Student government leaders will establish an undergraduate and graduate representative to track student reactions to the program throughout the year through meetings, forums and focus groups, according to Graduate Assembly President Bahar Navab. The campus began negotiating with the company in June for a reduced price on Adobe products — which normally cost $400 to $550 — after observing the success of a similar program at Indiana University, according to Tim Schulenburg, Adobe area manager for education.

News in Brief
Berkeley residents awake to find their car tires punctured South Berkeley residents awoke Wednesday morning to find tires punctured on over 50 of their cars on California, King and Julia streets. The tires were most likely damaged with a puncture tool such as a fireplace tool, a small pocket knife or an ice pick between 8 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to Sgt. Mary Kusmiss, spokesperson for the Berkeley Police Department. The predominant area where the crimes occurred was between 62nd
and Blake streets on California — the extent of 17 blocks. “There were cars all along that route which were rendered useless,” Kusmiss said. Officers found cars with damaged tires on two blocks of Julia Street between California and King streets and on three blocks of King, from Alcatraz Avenue to the Oakland border. “Thus far we have documented approximately 50 vehicles — ranging from cars to trucks to vans — with one or two tires that had been vandalized, primarily on the sidewalk side,” Kusmiss said. “There doesn’t seem to us to be any specific pattern aside from the particular street — particularly California Street.” She added that there was no particular
pattern in the types of cars with tire damage, though there appeared to have been cars skipped along the various routes. As of 8:45 p.m. Thursday, the police department had counted 74 vehicles with one or two tires punctured, according to Kusmiss. “We may not be able to get to the truth without having a community member say they witnessed a crime — it’s a very challenging crime to solve and challenging to catch — it’s akin to graffiti,” Kusmiss said in an interview. As of Thursday evening, the department has not made any arrests. “The investigation is continuing and officers are pursuing some potentially viable leads,” Kusmiss said in an email Thursday. — Sarah Mohamed

“What the deal was successful at doing was leveraging the buying power of a large population to lower the cost of products,” he said. “It was a mutual investment — obviously UC Berkeley is an amazing university ... and that reputation made it a great place to invest our resources.” Instead of running a pilot program for faculty and staff, the campus negotiated to provide them with the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection — which includes additional video editing software — through a deal that the campus says will save money annually. Providing the software to faculty and staff will result in an approximate $31,000 increase in current spending on software purchasing and licensing. However, the mass purchase of the software — which will trim about 1,000 reimbursement transactions from information technology staff duties and reduce the cost of tracking licenses — will save over $60,000 each year, according to campus Strategic Technology Acquisition Manager David Willson. While the campus’s deal with Adobe will negatively impact the sales of Adobe products at the Cal Student Store — the store may lose approximately $33,000 in
software sales — Shelton Waggener, associate vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer, said the agreement would positively affect the campus overall. “The student leadership and Student Technology Council believe that the net benefit to students is essentially greater than the relatively minor reduction of sales from the student store,” he said. Navab said in an email that she informed Cal Student Store Director Jeff Deutsch of the Adobe deal a few weeks ago. Deutsch declined to comment on the store’s loss in revenue. According to Ryan Landis, chair of the ASUC Store Operations Board, the campus did not inform the store of the agreement in a timely manner. “As one of our vendors, we would like the Student Store to succeed,” he said. “Informing the store of the Adobe agreement may have enabled the store to better serve the students.” While campus chose to provide students only with the more basic — and cheaper — design premium software, Waggener said that the campus has additional licenses for the master collection for students. These will become available once the campus works with
academic deans to establish which academic programs — such as journalism, art and environmental design — have the greatest need for more extensive video editing features. According to last year’s editor in chief of the Cal Literature and Arts Magazine, Anna Reeser, the program will greatly benefit publications groups on campus and increase efficiency. “More editors can participate in the hands-on layout process,” she said in an email. “Adobe programs are easiest to learn if you can play with them and learn by trial and error.” The campus is looking into similar agreements with companies such as Microsoft for Office software but has not reached any final decisions yet because of considerations about security and access for the campus community, Waggener said. “This is a new strategy for us, and it is delicate because some of the products may be popular with people but don’t meet critical things we need to accommodate for,” he said. “Everybody that has needs on campus we have to accommodate.” Alisha Azevedo is the lead academics and administration reporter.

off the beat
Learning to be a “sex nerd” BART directors appoint new general manager
am a nerd. About everything. I over-research anything I decide that I want to do. I exhaust the resources on the Internet and then move on to books if I still want to know more. When I started having sex, I started doing the same thing I always do: research. From random Internet sex articles to “The Guide to Getting it On,” as well as Ian Kerner’s “She Comes First” and “He Comes Next,” I read whatever looks interesting. Sometimes, sex books just give a slightly different perspective. They put into words things that I do anyway and maybe give a few tips to refine technique. Occasionally, though, there is a bit that has me sitting there going, “I never would have thought of that, but that makes a lot of sense.” When I first read about the male tipping point, I felt a lot of previous sexual experiences click into place. You see, I’m a tease. Not in the way where I’ll flirt and touch while not having interest, and more in the way that once I have a guy in my bed, I want to play with him. I bring him to the brink then slow back down to square one and just let the tension build until I finally let him orgasm. Except, there have been a few times where that ended with me watching the guy cum while I looked on bewildered and thought, “But I’m not even touching you!” I had pushed him past the tipping point, the point of no return after which a man will orgasm even if all stimulation is stopped. Women don’t do that. Learning about the tipping point caught me completely off guard. For women, if they are on the brink of orgasm, stopping stimulation means an overly sensitive clitoris and starting the whole process again, if orgasm is going to happen at all. Even if a woman is already cumming, stimulation still plays a role. Stopping in the middle of an orgasm may not cut it off immediately, but it is likely to significantly shorten it. But if her partner keeps up the pace, a lot of women can ride out an orgasm for a surprisingly long time. y friend who says that his policy is to just keep going unless he is told to stop or is pushed away has the right idea of it: she’ll let you know when it gets to be too much. There is a reason that “don’t stop!” is a common phrase in sex. So you can imagine my surprise the first time I stopped, and he, well, didn’t. After that, maybe I should be embarrassed that I still needed it spelled out for me. But sometimes a little outside perspective is useful. This wasn’t the first or the last time a book taught me about my sex life. If it wasn’t for being enough of a nerd to gather information, I may never have relaxed enough to actually have a

Erica Chase email@example.com G-spot orgasm. It’s not that books taught me about deep, relaxing tantric breathing that allowed me to communicate with my inner self or whatever tantra is supposed to be about. It’s more that sex books taught me that I didn’t actually have to pee. or most of us, since we were about two or three we have known that if you feel that full, pressing sensation it is time to stop whatever you are doing and go to the bathroom. Except, G-spot stimulation feels remarkably like needing to do just that. The G-spot is a spongy area in the first two inches or so of the front wall of the vagina that has the texture of a walnut. If a woman cums during penetration, it is probably because of the G-spot. When stimulated correctly, it can produce really intense orgasms. And a sort of “need-to-pee” sensation. Given that getting at your own G-spot requires either odd wrist angles or props, exploring with a partner is generally the first time a woman really experiences G-spot stimulation. I have to say, at first it just felt weird and vaguely uncomfortable. Apparently, that is completely normal, and the couple should just push through. The key is to relax, ignore the fact that there is a background sensation of needing to pee and just go with it. After a few times, it becomes easier to distinguish the G-spot sensation from the “I-need-touse-the-ladies’-room” sensation. Once that happens, you really start reaping the rewards. But without something telling me that it was completely normal, it would have taken me longer to get to the point of relaxation and orgasm, if I could have achieved it at all. Maybe, eventually, girls’ night gossip would have filtered the same information to me, and I would have learned about G-spots and tipping points and all the other interesting bits that books taught me instead. Really, though, why take the slow route if someone has already done the leg work for you? I’d rather test out of the intro course and move straight on to advanced studies.

Bay Area Rapid Transit appointed Grace Crunican, a transportation professional who formerly worked for the Clinton administration, to be its new general manager at a special board meeting Wednesday. BART’s Board of Directors voted 8-1 in favor of Crunican, whose new duties will include managing capital budgets totaling about $1.4 billion and running a workforce of about 3,100 employees servicing 44 stations. Crunican will be paid $300,000 a year, with a potential $20,000 annual management bonus. Among other projects, Crunican will supervise a systemwide initiative to replace aging BART cars, imple-
ment a redesign of Berkeley’s stations and test new self-help information kiosks at the Downtown Berkeley station. Before being hired as BART’s general manager, Crunican spent 32 years in the transportation industry building connections in Oregon and Washington as deputy director and capital project manager for the city of Portland and as the director of Seattle’s Department of Transportation. “I believe any endeavor is stronger through partnerships,” Crunican said in a statement. “This includes reaching out to BART’s customers, the communities BART serves, employees and other stakeholders.” BART board president Bob Franklin, who represents the district that includes Berkeley, said Crunican’s experience at the local, state and federal levels will prove crucial to her
management of both small- and large-scale projects. Crunican will be BART’s ninth general manager, replacing interim general manager Sherwood Wakeman, who oversaw BART throughout the turbulent summer of 2011, during which a homeless man was shot and killed at the Civic Center station on July 3 and underground cellphone service was cut to prevent an Aug. 11 protest. Franklin said he is confident that Crunican’s skills will be more than adequate to address BART’s current projects. “Her management style was very attractive to the board,” he said. “I think she has a can-do attitude and a kind of open-mindedness that makes it so whatever she’s facing, she’s going to go at it full force.” Crunican will start work in her new position Sept. 12.
ASUC: President urges senators to avoid divisive politics From front town hall meeting in mid-September to discuss surge space with student groups who will have to evacuate during renovation. “Surge is a temporary thing,” Verzhbinsky said at the meeting. “We’re trying to spend as little money as possible on surge so that there’s more money for the thing that really lasts.” Verzhbinsky also reported that though the project was over budget at the end of the spring term, relatively “painless” cuts were made to compensate for the overrun. In a departure from past meetings, senators’ laptops were closed for the majority of the meeting in order to comply with Alabastro’s new “no laptop” policy to reduce distractions, which he said was the reason for the
relatively short meeting. All new bills were pushed to next week’s meeting after committee members were finalized. ASUC President Vishalli Loomba described the upcoming year in her address as one of “unprecedented change” for the university, including the beginning of the implementation of Operational Excellence and increasing student tuition. Yet she encouraged senators to avoid engaging in divisive politics, despite the fact that the senate is split among four parties and an independent senator. “As we begin our terms I hope we will keep in mind the goals of this organization,” she said at the meeting. “I’m not asking you all to agree on ev-
ery issue, but I will say now is not the time to argue about whom is going to win the next election.” After the meeting, senate members were enthusiastic about how discussions would continue over the several coming months. “I’ve heard that in year’s past, the first meeting ... can be source of a lot of contention and partisanship because you’re deciding on a lot of committees,” said CalSERVE Senator Andrew Albright. “It was really nice, having heard that, to walk in a room with 19 other people and have a conversation about things and seeing that we can all work together. It really makes me hopeful for the rest of the year.”
(The California DREAM Act) is about promoting success ... Those who work hard, become good students, should not be punished for decisions made by their parents.” — State Senator Ron Calderon, D-Montebello

OP-ED | ASUC
Narrowing the gap CITY AFFAIRS After state data shows a widening gap between minority and white students’ success, action needs to be taken.
s time passes and minority students continue to struggle in Berkeley public schools, the educational vision of the city remains far-sighted. Not only did the percentage of Berkeley students passing the state high school exit exam decrease this year, but the gap between minority and white students widened, according to data released Wednesday by the California Department of Education. Yet we are not confident in the 2020 Vision for Berkeley’s Children and Youth plan’s ability to solve this dilemma and boost minority students’ chances for academic success. City officials need some corrective lenses and should more clearly define what it is they will do. The plan, which has been in the works for years and aims to narrow the achievement gap, was formalized more than three years ago in a resolution setting a goal that, by 2020, “all children born in Berkeley in 2007 and beyond, receive a healthy start and are equally ready to learn and succeed in the Berkeley public schools.” An outline of the plan on the city’s website includes such strategies as collecting data on “kindergarten readiness,” supporting students
and families in transitioning to kindergarten and identifying those in need based on attendance. We acknowledge that a Berkeley Unified School District committee met Thursday morning with the 2020 plan on their agenda for discussion, but we have yet to see proof that this path will work or that it is even on track to reach its goals. Much of the plan involves targeting children early on, but as we’ve seen with national programs like Head Start, such an approach is questionable. A 2010 study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services concluded that certain advantages gained through Head Start faded by the first grade. Knowing these shortcomings of past and longerstanding programs makes us even more wary of how Berkeley is approaching this problem. The city and Berkeley Unified School District need to make a more wholehearted push. The fact that the gap has continued to widen indicates that the plan’s direction needs to be more focused and effective. While we acknowledge that there has been much discussion and effort invested, it’s time to start seeing more tangible results.
Becoming balanced CAMPUS ISSUES A report gave UC Berkeley a failing grade for general education, calling into question our balanced education.
he top 10 slots in national — even global — rankings are often reserved for UC Berkeley, but a recent report gives the campus an unambiguous F. Rankings released Tuesday by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni graded colleges based on whether they require seven core subjects and gave the campus an F for not requiring students to take any of the subjects. We as students do not believe this is a valid assessment of our campus’s educational value. But, this report raises important questions regarding whether we are receiving a well-rounded education to prepare us for the world and whether the College of Letters and Science’s breadth requirements expose us to a breadth of disciplines. Upon reflection, we feel that we could be getting a more balanced education. Breadth requirements, intended to expose us to various studies, have instead become obstacles that students find a hassle. Students too often avoid challenging themselves and instead take well-known “easy” classes, like science courses in which they do not truly learn science. As the College of Letters and Science — enrolling three-fourths
of all undergraduates — states on its website, “a broad-based liberal arts education does more than prepare you for a job. It lays the foundation for a future career while also preparing you to compete in the marketplace of ideas.” While UC Berkeley does offer courses that could be building blocks for a genuinely balanced liberal arts education, the current system allows students to dodge earnestly learning a subject by taking a course that strays from the breadth it is intended to fulfill. A well-rounded education is important. A doctor must not only know how to diagnose patients, but must also know how to communicate, how to understand their patients in the context of society. And it is just as important that their patients with degrees in the social sciences understand their own health and what their doctor is telling them. Campus officials should re-evaluate whether the breadth system is realizing its purpose, or whether it is time to change. We are not advocating that the campus add new courses or spend extra money, but simply that the campus should rethink whether its liberal arts education fulfills its promise: a comprehensive education.

Defining UC Berkeley’s future The year 2011 marks unprecedented change. A “super committee” is at work in Washington, D.C., attempting to solve our nation’s debt crisis, leaving key programs like Pell Grants at stake. A budget crisis plagues Sacramento, forcing our tuition to skyrocket. Closer to home, the UC Berkeley campus is in the midst of Operational Excellence, a proactive initiative to deal with our gaping budget hole and identify savings. Every campus unit will be forced to ask itself how it can operate more efficiently while maintaining their core services and upholding the university’s mission of excellence and accessibility — and the ASUC is no exception. We are in the process of realignment and exploring how our new reporting authority can enhance the work we do serving Cal students. In a year where students’ contribution to the university exceeds that of the state for the first time in history, we must seize this opportunity to elevate our voices and chart a new
course for UC Berkeley and public higher education in the years to come. Now more than ever, students are primary stakeholders in the fight for public higher education and should be given a seat at the table accordingly. As the executive officers of one of the largest autonomous student governments in the nation, we do not take our roles lightly. We recognize that the ASUC is and must remain a forum for student collaboration and a vehicle for student engagement in decision making in all arenas. This year, the ASUC will be the headquarters for student activism. As UC Berkeley students, we are among the best and brightest in the nation. The ASUC is the mechanism to translate our ingenuity and intelligence into concrete action. We will send students to Washington, D.C., and Sacramento to lobby our legislators to protect public higher education and ensure access and affordability for all students. We will inject the student perspective into every campus decision to keep administrators accountable. We will fight to make sure that in a climate of budget cuts, student services will be protected. We will present students with

opportunities to compliment their academic work with real-world applications. And through it all, we will continue to provide events and programming to enhance student life and Cal spirit. With the new academic year just beginning, we are reaching out to all of you and sending a simple message. Recognize that you are part of an institution with a powerful mission: to serve the public of California. This is a pivotal moment in the history of public higher education, not just in California, but across the nation. As the pre-eminent public university in the world, we lead the way and help define what public education looks like. This leaves each of us with an enormous responsibility, so we cannot afford to sit on the sidelines. Take this opportunity to become engaged. Join the ASUC and be a part of the student movement to protect and preserve public higher education for generations to come. Joey Freeman is the ASUC External Affairs Vice President and Vishalli Loomba is the President of the ASUC. Executive Vice President Christopher Alabastro, Academic Affairs Vice President Julia Juong and Student Advocate Samar Shah also contributed to this op-ed.

In its first match of the season, the Tigers fell to UC Davis by a score of 3-1. With their current performance, the Bears are expected to take care of business against Pacific, one of the weaker teams in the NorPac West conference. However, even with all the positives signs and a weaker opponent, coach Shellie Onstead sees this upcoming game as an opportunity for growth and improvement. â€œOur attack did a really nice job of converting opportunities once we were inside the attacking zone and thatâ€™s given them a lot of confidence,â€? said the 17-year head coach. â€œ(But) we

The Bears have made the proper adjustments so far in the season. On offense, forwards Katie Benz and Mekenna DeBack have amply stepped into fill in Alex Morganâ€™s boots by scoring a total of seven goals this season. On defense, Cal is looking to maintain its clean sheet record. The team allowed no goals last weekend. Unfortunately for the Bears, last weekâ€™s routs in Hawaii had some negative effects on players, health-wise. After returning to Berkeley on a Sunday night red-eye flight, some players showed signs of fatigue and difficulty adjusting to the time zone changes, impacting regular practices this week. â€œMost of the players went straight to school after we got off the plane,â€? McGuire said. â€œWhen you travel three time zones, fatigue happens. We are giving them ample rest so they can be ready for Fridayâ€™s match.â€?

All in all, eight of his 49 When: 4 P.m. years were spent in the Saturday Central Valley. This Saturday at Where: Candlestick Park, Tedford Candlestick will open his tenth season as the Cal football head coach against — who else? — Fresno State. He claims it won’t make the 4 p.m. kickoff any more important. “Every opener is big,” he said. “There hasn’t been one yet that hasn’t been big.” There’s little reason to doubt Tedford; he has a squad that went 5-7 a year ago, not to mention an offense that desperately needed fixing. And as much as he insists that the team can’t and hasn’t worried itself over how last season turned out, fans are waiting to see how the Bears bounce back from Tedford’s first-ever losing season. One of the biggest question marks is quarterback, which shuttled from mediocrity to

inadequacy in 2010 when Kevin Riley’s seasonending injury gave way to now-senior Brock Mansion. With the latter dropped to third on the depth chart, junior transfer Zach Maynard is now in the limelight — where fans will see him take a competitive snap for the first time in 21 months. Maynard, who transferred from Buffalo after the departure of coach Turner Gill, is more mobile than anyone else Tedford has had under center, and therefore could add a new dimension to what was a stagnant offense. “He’s elusive enough not to take big hits,” Tedford said of Maynard, who measures at a relatively slight 6-foot-2, 190 pounds. “He can make people miss and he’s smart about getting down. When he feels people coming in, he’s gonna get down. “He’s not gonna run over anybody, that’s for sure.” Despite the fact that Maynard won the starting job at the end of spring camp — early considering how open Tedford has kept competition in recent years — it’s hard to know exactly how he will perform during a game. The North Carolina native completed 57 percent of his passes in his last season as a
Bison, balancing 18 touchdowns with 15 interceptions; how much the junior has improved over the last two years remains to be seen. Fresno State — which is already receiving a $900,000 bonus after selling well over 10,000 tickets — has a greenhorn of its own directing the offense. Sophomore Derek Carr, younger brother of former No. 1 draft pick David Carr, has been handed the reins after the departure of twoyear starter Ryan Colburn. With him is the Bulldogs’ 1,000-yard rusher Robbie Rouse, a 5-foot-7, 185-pound scat back similar to Cal’s Isi Sofele. “You’re gonna get speed and athleticism with (Fresno State) always,” Tedford said. “They have excellent speed outside. They have a good running back corps.” The group will have to contend with a defense that should be good enough to keep the Bears in most games, giving Maynard some breathing room on the other side. Defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast will have a mix of young and old to work with in his second season at Berkeley. Senior linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who grew up following the Bulldogs in Fresno, returns as one of the leaders in the front seven, while senior safety Sean Cattouse anchors the defensive backfield. “They’re ready to play,” Tedford said. “They’re ready to suit up against somebody else and get the game started. They’ve been practicing for a long time.”
Gabriel Baumgaertner email@example.com This opening game is not underwhelming. It’s unfamiliar. For many of you, it’s probably uninteresting. Let’s face it, students: Memorial Stadium’s one-year sabbatical and last year’s losing season don’t have you as excited about football. The Big Game loss definitely plays a small role too, even if you successfully blocked that one out. And now student attendance has to be lowered because of the limited AT&T Park seating capacity. Can “gamedays” successfully take place in a city across the Pacific Ocean from the stadium? How many students have the nerves/guts/gumption to continue the gameday experience and go BARTying? And then after that, navigate San Francisco? Well, it’s clear that hardly any students (and apparently alumni, just look at the ticket sales) are going to make the trip on Saturday because it costs an extra $30 and a ride all the way to Candlestick Park (it’s an NFL Stadium! Kind of ). Beer-stained big screens are always on, though, and the inability to predict anything about this game should give you at least one reason to watch. If you’re a college football fan, you will be tempted to turn to the Texassized Oregon-LSU showdown (foreshadowed by a bar fight that jailed the Tigers’ starting quarterback) taking place in Jerry Jones’ $1.15 billion Cowboys Stadium in Dallas; A game that would likely make John Madden say “BOOM!” But wait, I’ll try to save you. I’ll be peeking at the Pac-12-SEC throwdown from the press box, but if you don’t focus on the Cal game, you may miss out on the debut of perhaps the most uncharacteristic Jeff Tedford team since he took over the program.

Blackbirds likely won’t be singing in Cal looks to solidify dead of night after facing No. 1 Bears its lineup in opener By Connor Byrne | Staff firstname.lastname@example.org Ranked as the best team in the nation, the No. 1 Cal volleyball team will spend its second straight weekend playing teams from the other end of the spectrum. The Bears will make their longest trip of the regular season as they travel to Charlotsville, Va., to compete in the Holiday Inn Jefferson Cup. Cal (3-0) will kick things off Friday morning with a 10 a.m. match against Long Island (0-3), and follow it up with a 4 p.m. tilt versus host Virginia (2-1). The squad will close out its weekend by playing East Carolina (1-0) on Saturday. All three matches
will be the first ever meeting between the schools. The Bears shouldn’t be feeling too much pressure when they square off against Long Island, as the Blackbirds have yet to win a set in the 2011 season. Virginia should prove slightly more of a challenge, though the Cavaliers still dropped a 3-1 decision to Western Michigan last weekend. Coach Rich Feller’s club likely won’t see any special on Saturday, as its finish its weekend against an East Carolina team that went 2-30 in 2010. Cal opened its season last weekend with nine straight-set wins in three matches, bumping themselves from the No. 3 team in the nation to No. 1. However, the Bears never started
sharp, and allowed Florida International to jump out to a 9-7 lead in the opening set of the weekend’s final match. “We started out pretty slow last weekend, so our focus this week has been going hard from point one,” middle hitter Correy Johnson said. “I don’t feel like we weren’t preparing enough, but we just need to stay focused on being the first to five (points) and the first to ten. There’s no excuse for not starting strong in the beginning.” Part of the “struggles” can be explained by the lack of communication among the Cal players. With the departure of setter Carli Lloyd, the 2010 Player of the Year, the Bears lost their vocal leader, a role that they are

In fact, four key players are
