The Big Game is alway Big

There’s some commentary out there that this year’s Big Game isn’t a big deal.  I’m here to remind everyone that it is.  The history of Big Game upsets is so long I can’t go into it here.  But here are just a few:

  • 1990: 3 loss Cal loses to 6 loss Stanford
  • 1986: 1-9 Bears beat 7-3 Stanford
  • And of course, 1982: Cal beats John Elway’s Stanford  with The Play denying them their bowl bid 

Sometimes no one realizes how Big the Big Game is until after the fact.  For some reason rivalry games come out odd ways.  But trust me, you’re going to want to be there on Saturday.  If Cal blows them out, what will be more therapudic?  If Cal wins a close one, won’t you want to have been them to cheer them on?  If Cal loses, won’t you feel like a complete idiot for having overlooked the Big Game on your over-priced flight to El Paso, TX for the “Sun” bowl when the Holiday bowl stiffs Cal for having lost to lowly Stanford?
