Gotta say it. Looks really bad for Cal Football to have never hired a black head football coach. Not that new Cal Football Head Coach Sonny Dykes is bad hire, but when this blogger learned we passed on Hue Jackson, it took the luster off the selection of Dykes.

In case you missed it, here’s the first seven minutes of today’s press conference at Raiders Headquarters: What cracked me up about the start of the press conference was that Coach Jackson said “There’s a report out there that...

Carson Palmer is an Oakland Raiders quarterback as of today. And the man who was the long-time (2003) Cincinnati Bengals signal caller who went to USC, gets to stay out in the West Coast and play for Hue Jackson.
