A few jottings from today's organized team activities:
*Cal football coach Jeff Tedford watched today's practice. He coached Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin at Fresno State and got him started in coaching.
As a Cal grad, it's always nice to chat with the guy that saved my alma mater's football program.
He's done such a good job I can play the role of angry alum if the Bears aren't in the Rose Bowl in 2008.
Oh, how soon we forget Cal was 1-10 in 2001.
*Mike Williams and Ronald Curry didn't practice. Williams still is out with the hamstring injury suffered in minicamp. Curry is resting a sore hamstring, nothing serious.
But is Travis Taylor's presence a message to Williams?
"You'd have to ask Mike," Kiffin said. "I would think so."
*There was no mention of the death row inmate in Arizona whose last words were "Go Raiders." check out the link: http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/0522comer0522-ON.html
*Quarterback JaMarcus Russell, the No. 1 overall pick, will have his wisdom teeth pulled this week
*Center Jeremy Newberry has not been with the team because he is with his ailing grandmother.
