Cal got whipped by UCLA 40-24 Thursday night but Cal never seems in the game as UCLA ran away early. Goff was out played by UCLA freshman QB Rosen 295 yards to 399. UCLA also out gained Cal 174 to 131, on the ground. However the most important statistic was the score. In addition most of the significant Cal yards were in piled up in garbage time when the game was out of reach.
The most disturbing thing about this loss is Cal had two weeks to prepare after a near win against Utah. Next up is a very talented USC team in Memorial Stadium next week. A loss to SC will bring out the Sonny doubters and will put the team in a downward spiral that could lead to just one or two more wins.
I think that Goff latest performances is now raising the specter that he is not top 10 draft choice given his struggles against better teams and the fact that Cal runs an offense at Cal that is not NFL friendly.
