#41 Baylor Bears: College Football 77 in 77

For the Baylor Bears, the RG3 party is over now. All the fun refreshments have been served, and now the check has come due. Time to pay up with going back to mediocrity. Well, they could be a little better than mediocre, but this won’t be anything like the excitement of last season. Very few schools ever experience a Heisman trophy winner and #2 pick in the NFL Draft storybook season, so 2012 won’t be much like 2011.

But I sincerely hope they retain that awesome paint finish on their helmets from the bowl game. I forgot what that’s specifically called, but you know what I mean. It was really cool.

College Football 77 in 77: #56 California Golden Bears

It’s been kind of a blah time for sports at the University of California-Berkely recently. It’s a college basketball school first, but they haven’t had a Jason Kidd type play-maker in a awhile. The Pac 10 has been down the last few years, so Golden Bears wins on the hardwood ring a little more hollow. When it comes to college football, you’re not seeing any more Aaron Rodgers or Kyle Boller type QBs passing through Sather Gate.

But all is not lost, the Golden Bears get to live in a very pleasant climate, the school’s academic reputation is as prestigious as you’ll find among BcS schools, there’s a nice hippie vibe on campus, there’s weed available everywhere if that’s what you’re into, and there’s hot Asian girls every where you look on campus. And it could be a tough season in Berkley, as they’ll play all their home games at AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants. They’ll also have to practice on a campus rugby field as Memorial Stadium gets a renovation.

And so it ends …

When Calvin Johnson erroneously placed the football on the ground of the end zone in the closing seconds of the first game of the season, I immediately thought it would be a long season.

The Bears were about to lose to the Lions … at home! However, thanks to the replay gods and an awful rule, the Bears were given a gift and a first-week win.

This controversial call along with a bevy of other near misses and lucky plays had many national pundits calling Chicago overrated and undeserving.

However, the weeks went on and the “W’s” piled up. And the next week thing you know, the Bears are playing at home in the NFC Championship game. And, what do you know, even though the Bears made it; they were still overrated and undeserving.
