MIA

Apologies for the lack of posts this week - real life occasionally gets in the way of obsessive sports blogging. I'll have something up on the Final Four before the weekend, as well as a look at Cal's defensive line in '07. Take care and Go Bears!!!

Take your time, Tightwad; you definitely deserve a break. I am curious, though, what you make of Jim Harbaugh's recent comments--based on "inside" sources--about Pete Carroll having only one more year left at 'SC. Not that Carroll's leaving would shock me or anyone else, but it is an interesting way for the new Stanford man to introduce himself into the Pac-10 coaching fraternity. And until Harbaugh actually shows evidence of turning that doormat of a program of his around, I think the only person's job security he should be worried about now is his own.

What?!? That is really interesting. It kinda begs the question though, why in the world would he even say something like that? This time last year he was down coaching D3 SDU. He seriously better shut his mouth. Seems like the type of guy who will take jabs at the calm cool collected Tedford. No worries though, Coach T can more than defend himself.

I forgot to include a link to the story regarding Harbaugh and Carroll, which might not be receiving much play outside of L.A.. But it made the L.A. Times today and has been a topic of interest on local sports radio.

"If he's going to make statements like that, he ought to get his information right," Carroll said. "And if he has any questions about it he should call me."

Just want to say: We miss you, Tightwad. If you ever get the chance, can you lay down some wisdom on Marshawn's supposed drop in the draft, due to alleged character issues.

As I'm sure you've heard, even Sports Illustrated is off the Lynch train, with Don Banks dropping from the 1st round. And there are several reports that the Cal coaching staff was "brutalizing" Marshawn in interviews with NFL scouts.

Hopefully, you'll be able to respond before the draft.

Tightwad's still MIA, and now we learn that Jay Heater is leaving the CCTimes?! Where's a hopeless Bears fan to get his fix, even during these lazy days of Spring?

we at the save the oaks coalition/foundation just want all of you bear fans to know we are currently constructing a news website about bear football news. soon you will be able to get the best, up to the minute info about the team only YOU love. we have a tremendous vantage point from which to report, as you well know. we plan to exploit this situation for money and new recruits to our cause of destruction.

we feel it is time we put our time and efforts into things other than just saving the trees and smearing you name into the unnatural mud @ memorial. while we fully acknowledge that our eventual goal is the demise of cal football, and their subsequent forced move to oakland, we love you guys all the same.

we are trying desperately to broaden our horizons. among others reporting live from memorial will be notables such as running wolfe himself, also providing wonderful analysis of the team will be none other than sea otter, who will report live from the berkeley city jail. she has been interviewing many opponents of the athletic high performance center, and they mean business.

STAY TUNED! with blogs like tightwads no longer able to offer real time news on your favorite team, we felt it was time to act. the blog will launch soon, hope to see you all there!

sincerely,

the hippies of the save the oaks destroy the team coalition.

Heres what we'll do, we are going to make a blog within a blog. At least till Tightwad Hill gets back. So let me start it off. I was at the final spring practice yesterday and of course you can't draw anything conclusive from spring practice, but the defense was looking good. Eddie Young, for the last 45mins of practice, seemed to be in on half of the stops. The offense was ok, but most of the time we were using Bryan VanMeter so I don't think that can really tell us much. Also Kyle Reed is for sure the back up quarterback. The reason, Kevin Reily broke his finger. Heres the link to the calbears.com article on the spring practice:

The tree-sit protestors asked us to pass along this update:

Zachary Running Wolf, Native American leader/elder has been arrested three times by the UC Police in the last two months during his involvement in protecting the Memorial Oak Grove and sacred Native American burial ground. In early March he was charged with two felonies: threatening an officer and resisting arrest, but the felony arrest was seven days after the charges allegedly took place. At Zach's court appearance for the felonies, the prosecuting attorney offered to reduce the charges to a misdemeanor, with three years of probation and a "four way search clause" (which would allow law enforcement to search Zach at any time without his consent). After reviewing the evidence, Zachary Running Wolf and his legal team rejected the offer, deciding to take the case to trial.

The University, probably knowing that they didn't have a good case against Running Wolf, continued to harass and target him. Two days after he rejected the prosecutor's offer, the Berkeley Daily Planet published an article announcing that prominent criminal defense attorney Tony Serra was to represent Zachary in his case against the University. Coincidentally, that same morning Zach was arrested again by UC Police, this time for three previous bicycle citations: riding without a light, running a stop light, and riding on the sidewalk; two of which were previously excused.


To make matters worse, although enough money had been raised for the usual 10% bail bond, the University had pressured the bail bonds companies to deny Zach a bond without a large collateral, saying he was a "flight risk." Zach's supporters were unable to raise enough money, and Running Wolf had to spend the weekend in jail and was denied any phone calls. He was finally released on his own recognizance, although the judge considered keeping him in jail until his trial appearance.

Zach Running Wolf is now awaiting his trial hearing on Wed. April 18th at the Oakland Courthouse, 661 Washington St. There will be a press conference at 1:30pm on Wed. the 18th, where Tony Serra will comment on the case. Running Wolf is intending to seek compensation for false arrest, malicious prosecution, and slander, but before he can go after the university, he must first deal with the U.S. injustice system. Zachary is asking for monetary donations to assist with future legal fees, and for tree-sit support and supplies. The tree-sit has just completed its 136th day.

DOWN WITH THE UC AND ALL THE JOCKS! BURN THEM AT THE STAKE! WORSHIP RUNNING WOLFE NOW OR DIE! SAVE THE TREES DUDE!

"US Injustice System." What a bunch of wierdos who think America is evil. I'll tell ya, hippies are just as much radicals as any. They force you to accept their views or else. I also heard there is supposed to be some sort of student camp out at the Oak Grove on the 20th. Someone needs to go there and counterprotest and take over the grove and say it needs to be cut down, NOW!

Could we hire Dogg the bounty hunter to get him? He caught the Max Factor heir in Mexico once, so Wadda should be easy to find. Unless one of the cartels is holding him! They might want to torture him and do bad things to him! Was tightwad into hard-core drugs? Was he hopping to bring a shipment across the border back into the states? I need to know all this stuff before I can hire an effective Bounty Hunter. Hold on Tightwad! We are coming to get cha!

Bad news guys, just heard Tightwad is in a remote Mexican jail, with little food or water. The Mexicans are saying they intend to prosecute him to the fullest extent of their laws, whatever that means. When I asked if we might provide legal counsel they said his trial would be closed to the public and held in a drug tribunal. I guess he had something like 1 ton of elicit steroids and other various narcotics. This is terrible; see what the tree sit people make us do? Tightwad was short on cash and he had to make a move. Knowing full well that the hippies of the Save the Oaks bunch have an insatiable appetite for drugs, he sought to provide for that market. In so doing he will rot in a Mexican jail unless we can somehow get him out. Maybe we can hire Vince Mackey and the rest of the strike team from The Shield? They HIPPIES have seen our best blogger thrown into a jail he most likely will never leave... If we could sneak in a laptop perhaps the jail has wi fi?

Well the beatings have finally ended, all the guards are busy watching futbol now. The cool thing is I have wireless with a nice laptop that I have smuggled into my cell with the help of our friends in la eme. I never thought I would team up with the Mexican Mafia but thus far it has been mutually beneficial. I plan on watching the draft today from my lonely jail cell. Now if only the beatings would stop. Please get me out guys, I don’t know how much longer I can make it.

Friends! Bad news… The Mafia has said that unless I can come up with thousands more in cash my protection will end effective midnight tonight. Honestly, I am terrified. What ever happened to getting me out of here? The plane never showed up and guards have been placed outside my cell. Last night they interrogated me until the wee hours asking why I looked so smug. Well I can assure you that smugness is gone now that not only are my chances of escape slim, but my protection is also nearing an end. Can you please appeal to the President and the Governor to try to get me out of here? People in our country whine about how terrible our penal system is, well I got news for you, it’s a paradise compared to this place. I would gladly do my time in San Quentin as opposed to where I am now. The other bad thing is that the battery on my laptop appears faulty and there are only certain select times when I can plug it in. If you guys don’t hear from me for a while it is either because I am A: dead, or B: getting the crap beat out of me C: being taken advantage of by some guy who doesn’t speak English and is missing most of his teeth along with a few limbs.

So thanks for coming through for me guys. I suppose I will have to accept my award from the Rose Bowl Before I Die bunch in absentia, sorry…
