New York Times: Tuesday Kickoff

Here is the link.


The Oregonian’s John Canzano said there’s a strong undercurrent of Mike Bellotti vs. Jeff Tedford in this weekend’s Cal-Oregon game, which is the biggest on this weekend’s college football slate. Bellotti Tedford is a former Tedford Bellotti assistant who got a lot of credit for the Ducks’ victories in the Holiday Bowl and Fiesta Bowl back in the Joey Harrington era.

Canzano sets the stakes: “So, what do you suppose Saturday is really about to Bellotti? Quieting the whispers among his own fan base. Proving to the country that he deserved all the accolades that went Tedford’s way. Plain and simple, hanging on to his legacy. It’s not that often that a person gets an opportunity to prove himself with so many watching, and Bellotti understands the stakes.”

From the Cal side, Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News says that its Oregon or bust for the Bears DeSean Jackson. He writes: “It’s not even October, and DeSean Jackson has already reached a make-or-break moment in his Heisman Trophy chase.”
