Source: Cal To Make Key "Stadium Announcement"

California Memorial Stadium

Bears Could Be
Playing At AT&T Park

One Great Season

The mysterious announcement expected at Cal Monday morning probably won't end up being all that mysterious.

The Golden Bears are expected to announce they'll play their home games at AT&T Park in San Francisco during the 2011 season.

Cal's Sports Information Department sent out a release Sunday night announcing Monday's press conference scheduled to take place at AT&T Park, the home of baseball's San Francisco Giants. That Giants president Larry Baer will be present Monday helps connects the dots, as does the Cal source who sent a text message to OGS late Sunday night confirming "a stadium announcement."

Cal has played its home games at historic Memorial Stadium since 1923. In 2005, the school announced a two-stage plan to overhaul its athletic facilities, and just a few months ago approved $321 million to renovate the stadium, a project slated to begin next month and be completed by the 2012 season.

The Golden Bears still have two open dates to fill for the non-league portion of their schedule in September 2011. Same goes for early 2012, but Cal will welcome Big Ten foes Northwestern and Ohio State in September 2013.


Cal's Tedford Seems Tired Of Tedious Oregon Inquiries

One Great Season

BERKELEY, Calif. -- I spent a few hours at Cal's Memorial Stadium today, and boy will that be a great place to watch a college football game.

Shoot, it would be a great place just to take a nap.

Anyway, inside the stadium is where Cal coach Jeff Tedford speaks at his weekly media luncheon on Tuesdays, and the reporters who gathered there still were asking questions about Saturday's embarrassing 42-3 loss at Oregon.

It's clear that Tedford wants to focus on what's ahead -- a team called USC -- and forget about last weekend's surprising blowout loss.

Below is the video of Tedford reacting to yet another Oregon question, and below that is just a rough, minute-long pan shot of the tree-covered hills behind the east side of the stadium, then shots of San Francisco off in the distance to the west.
