Cal Football vs. UC Davis: Cal 42, UC Davis 3 , 3rd

Either because of the weather or because of UC Davis there is a packed house for Cal vs. UC Davis.   Cal is ahead 42 to 3 with a lot more game to go.

Really, Cal should be happy UC Davis is playing a pro offense.  The Aggies are really well suited for a spread option system and could show better against Cal.

The main problem for UC Davis is Cal's Team Speed.  Yep. In caps. 

Lovely day in Berkeley

On The Way To Cal Football vs UC Davis

The Cal game started.  This blogger got a late start and all to see Notre Dame vs Purdue.  ND was leading 7 to zip.

Florida beat Miami of Ohio but 34 to 12.  That is good for Miami.   Florida should be concerned.

This is mobile blogging from a taxi cab in Oakland.

Stay tuned.

College Football Weekend One: Cal, Stanford, Notre Dame, Penn State

Today marks the first day of the 2010 College Football Season. Locally here, in what must be called the "stomper" games, at 1 PM, the Cal Golden Bears take on The UC Davis Aggies at Cal Memorial Stadium, and Stanford Cardinal meets the Sacramento State Hornets at Stanford Stadium.

Dangerous matchup, because if either UC Davis or Sacramento State wins, or does well, it's going to be embarrassing for Cal or Stanford.

Penn State Beats Youngstown State

Meanwhile, in their own stomper game, Penn State beat Youngstown State 44 to 14. The game marked the first start for Penn State Freshman Quarterback Robert Bolden. State College News reports that Bolden did well:

He looked comfortable in the pocket and connected with his targets quickly and accurately. He threw 29 passes for 20 completions, 240 yards, two TDs and and an interception before Kevin Newsome replaced him in the fourth quarter.

Notre Dame v. Purdue

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish take on The Purdue Boilermakers at 3:30 PM ET. The game marks the first one for new Head Coach Brian Kelly and his innovative hybrid-spread offense.

Robert Schimmel

Howard Stern Show regular and Comedian Robert Schimmel is in the hospital and in critical condition after injuries from a car accident. Now, just 7 minutes ago, it was confirmed that he's dead.

Schimmel was reportedly traveling in Arizona with his son and daughter. Robert's daughter was trying to avoid one accident in the lane she was driving in, but caused her own car to roll over in the process.

The 60-year-old entertainer had overcame cancer and was waiting for a liver to complete a transplant operation to combat cirrhosis.

Schimmel An Amazing Talent

TheComicsComic.con reports:

Schimmel's big break came through Rodney Dangerfield's young comedians special for HBO in 1988, Nothin' Goes Right, in which he shared a bill with a soon-to-be murderers row lineup of Bill Hicks, Andrew Dice Clay, Lenny Clarke, Dom Irrera, Carol Leifer and Barry Sobel. Here's the clip from that appearance (language, obviously, is NSFW): has posted a great memorial to Robert Schimmel, that's worth a read.

This is sad news for The Howard Stern Show as it marks the second time in less than a year that a comedian who was a regular on the show has faced altering events. The last time was Artie Lange who tried to commit suicide in January.

More on this unfortunate news soon.
