Opportunity to win a Tedford signed Calography

Sunday, March 4th, 2007

Hopefully most of my Cal blog readers have been followers of since I started writing for them.  For those that haven’t, I wanted to make sure you heard about an opportunity to win a Calography, a picture diary of all of the 2007 football recruits for Cal, signed by Tedford.  I’ve got an unsigned one and it’s pretty darned cool.  To win it, you have to win the Pac-10 tournament predictor contest.  Go to to learn more about it and sign up.

You don’t need to be an existing member of Rivals to play, you just need to sign up for the 7-day trial.  Since the contest ends before the trial would, you could win it without paying for a subscription.  However, I would hope that once you’ve tried it, you’d want to keep the subscription.  It’s only $100 a year and you get all the news that doesn’t make the papers.
