SF Chronicle Podcast: Can Cal Bear Weight of Great Expectations?

For the second consecutive year, the California Golden Bears kickoff the season against Tennessee with fans and football pundits expecting a golden season. So beat reporter Rusty Simmons and Chronicle sports editor Glenn Schwarz kick off another Cal Football podcast season with a look at the team's strengths and weaknesses.  Simmons gives some insights into what Head Coach Jeff Tedford is doing differently this year to avoid a repeat of last season's embarrassing opening day flop against the Volunteers.  He also talks about how star wide receiver DeSean Jackson is dealing with the media hype and attention he is receiving, and what the team plans to do to shore up the defensive line.

And what does the hoopla behind freshman running back Jahvid Best mean for the team this year?
