When Cal takes the field for its games this season, there will be a new man calling plays for the Bears. In this case, however, it's like the old Who song: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Jeff Tedford hopes that's a good thing, because he's the boss and he'll be calling the majority of plays in an effort to make his first losing season as Cal's head coach his only losing season.
"I did it the first three or four years here, then went back and forth," Tedford said. "You've got to be all in or out, one of the two. There's got to be a role you play. You get to set things up, have a good feel for things." For Tedford and his team, it begins anew with spring practice, 15 sessions spread over a month's time, starting today and running through April 30. Because of the renovation of Memorial Stadium and unexpected structural issues at adjacent Witter Rugby Field, the Bears will be primarily a road show this spring.
