Cougars ready to face 11th-ranked Cal


It's game day (vs. Cal at 2 p.m. in Martin Stadium) and we have are usual array of information, all contained on one page in the print Spokesman-Review. We'll try to do something similar here before we hit the road.

On the front page, we'll lead with the advance story about today's game by Glenn Kasses.

Inside, on our Cougar game day page, we have: By the Numbers; My Cougar Saturday with announcer Glenn Johnson and more, but we can't find it on-line. Sorry.

From beyond the mountains, Craig Smith writes the Cougars are hoping Cal is in a giving mood – as in giving away a few turnovers. Here is the Times' quick preview.

And now Jim Moore is sharing in-house betting secrets with everyone. For my money, Jon Naito is the smartest guy in the room. Actually, Moore lays out his reasons why the Cougs could win. He thinks that every week, of course, because he bleeds crimson and his hair is gray.

From Tacoma, Todd Milles profiles Mike Dunbar, the Bears' offensive coordinator who coached at Central Washington. If this sounds familiar, it is. Check the post from Thursday for a link to another Dunbar story.

And, from even farther afield (how about Murfreesboro, Tennessee?), there's one sportswriter who picks Cal in a close one.
