now the question is... if tedford is fired, will cal raise their academic standards for athletes again? as it was before tedford cried to admissions and threatened to quit years back if they didn't lower them?
The problem is the program has stagnated, if not regressed. He turned the program around but he never was able to get it to the next level. I think the program needs a fresh start at HC.
Tedford is a QB guru, but he hasn't been able to develop a good QB since Aaron Rodgers. It's just time for a change.
I also disagree with the notion that Cal won't be anything w/o Tedford. If they get a good replacement and recruiter (which they will be able to) then they will continue to recruit high end talent. Tedford has a lot of talent on the team and the team isn't producing, it's time for someone new.
