WE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS

This probably wasn't the best year to launch a blog named Tightwad Hill. The denizens of the real Hill are suing the University to block the stadium re-design on the grounds that it threatens their free view of Cal games.

The legal grounds here are something of a mystery. Dan Sicular and crew clearly don't own the land on which they squat. Their suit claims that Tightwad Hill is a cultural resource, and that the University hasn't taken that into account in its planning. OK, but as we understand it, the re-designed stadium would obscure only a portion of the view from the Hill. If this is true, and Tightwad Hill can still accommodate fans on gameday, then Sicular has no legal leg to stand on. Are we missing something?

Tightwad, I really hope that you have nothing to do with this. ;-)

If they want to see free games, why don't they drive across the bay and go watch a Stanford game? I am sure the admission will be open to public soon...

They know things like this affect Tedford's tenure, right? Maybe they don't care about the resurgence of Cal football. I am a young alum, in law school, and I still scrounge up enough dough to see my alma mater play on Saturdays. Pathetic.

the redesign plans are only preliminary anyway, so no one knows for sure whether anything would be obscured or not. i'm sure mr. sicular doesn't know.

Somewhat related to Bish II, Has there ever been a number combination like Lynch and Bish I, both wearing No. 10?

What really upsets me about the lawsuits is that these people's motives are SO painfully obvious. How can you sit there and listen to all their bs when you know what they REALLY want, such as free games, peopel away from their homes, etc.

Eric - double numbers? Heck, we have more than one instance of that on the Golden Bears (#1 - Tha Chozen One and Worrell Williams comes to mind immediately, #4- DeCoud and Gray - #3 Levy and Hicks). Or were you referring to Marshawn and the Bishop being the leaders of their respective units and much-bad-ass-ed-ness? If the latter, UW 1991 team had Mario Bailey and Dana Hall - both #5.
