No, Cal CHOSE to have a really short bench because his top 8 players were all 5 stars.

It was before the prep school train arrived.

Not as many prep school guys as you might think

Mostly just that one year

I remember they went looking for walk-ons just to have enough players to practice. That was the worst of it, but Cal was short a full roster three or more years.

With Cal? I know Pastner had to fill out a roster his first year after Garcia and Nglorio or whosever tore their ACLs

He also has a couple guys declare after signing (Perkins, Stoudamire, Qyntel) and then had some in season defections/suspensions...Sanchez, Richmond, Banks, Hunt, Grice, Wade...

Let's hope no one gets hurt, early in the season.
It only takes 5

LOL-don't even compare Cal's roster to this mess-we have one definite high D1 player; 3 if KJ is healthy and ready along with Markell IF he can consistently hit a jumper.

Mo Avery suited up for one of Cal's teams. Can't remember the circumstances. Also started at QB vs UT one year. Damn near won that game. Kid was fearless.

Also, is Sam Craft playing this year or no?

Cal's first few seasons weren't that much better. I think we are better off this time around. I hope so anyway. I have my blue glasses on. Don't spoil it.

Mo probably shoulda been the QB from the start that year


He definitely saved us

Yeah but Cal was recruiting his butt off, but some of his recruits were going pro, not eligible or in general he was just setting his targets too high for what he could realistically get to come here on a regular basis without a recent history of program success. Tubby really looks like he doesn't care.

Who would be more likely to win with the players we have now vs, say an SMU or someone of that ilk -- a Cal-coached Memphis or a Tubby-coached Memphis?

That is how I see it. Looks bad that he just gave up on 2016.
Hope he coaches these guys up.
A couple of higher caliber players in the Lawson's could use some good solid coaching.
