Nate Longshore will really have to improve, and quickly, if Cal is to have any hopes of beating Minnesota. He looked hurried and shaky in his true debut for Cal. His mobility or lack thereof was glaringly evident in the loss to Tennessee.With Levy now officially out of the running to start this week, this man too, Joe Ayoob, will need to really step up. He looked promising for brief moments against Tennessee, much like he did last year. However, he was still very rickety and missed many open receivers. His mobility may give him the needed edge to beat out Longshore.
Coach Tedford must really not like Steve Levy. If the guy threw a shot glass at someone’s head there is an excellent chance he is a jerk. However, given the situation in Strawberry Canyon this is no time to get moralistic. Steve Levy may in fact be our last best hope.
For now though he will have to wait. He is currently the clear favorite of the people in my Contra Costa Times Poll. Coming in second is Joe Ayoob, followed closely by Longshore.
