As most readers know by now, Cal has accepted a bid to the Holiday Bowl. Most likely opponent will be Texas A&M. Other possible opponents are Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas, depending on how the conference championship game turns out.
If the opponent turns out to be Texas, I can see Old Blues turning up in droves to cheer for Cal and jeer the hated Mack Brown. While it is not the Rose Bowl that we all hoped for, it is still a good bowl and San Diego is always warm. Go Bears.
