3030939_a9883342b7This past weekend, while many of you suckers beloved readers were calling Main Stacks home and knee-deep in midterm studying (can someone please explain to us why professors call ‘em “midterms” when we’re only five weeks into the semester?), the Clog took an excursion down south to enjoy the beautiful, polluted auburn skies/beach water of Los Angeles, California.

And, in realizing that our then No. 1 Cal women’s volleyball team would be battling Pac-12 adversaries USC and UCLA on consecutive nights, we figured we’d take advantage of the opportunity to celebrate a couple of victories in enemy territory.

Football season is back, mes amis, and since we just came off a rather magnificent win, the season is looking pretty good so far. The best news of all, however, is that you can get real-time updates on the game without leaving your house. That’s right, the Daily Cal sports wizards will be live blogging the Colorado game this Saturday Sept. 11 starting at 12:30.

According to the Facebook event, there are some questions to be answered. “How will the Bears fare against an actual FBS opponent? Does it even matter that Colorado’s joining the Pac-12? Ready to see what happens in Part II of the Keenan Allen Show?”

We’d like to say that the answers are: “we’ll win,” “no,” and “hell yeah!” but you’ll just have to tune in to the live blog to find out. You can also comment and participate in in-game polls while you’re reading. Just don’t forget the body paint — even if you’re alone in your room, it’s still very important.
