While definitely not up to their Rose Bowl team standards
of the last two years, California’s Bears nevertheless served
notice Saturday that they won’t be dethroned without a struggle.
As the campaign wears on, Lynn Waldorf’s charges are bound to
improve over their performance which disappointed, though
.hardly surprised, the faithful who gathered in Multnomah. With
the apparent wealth of big, fast talent available to the Golden
Staters, they could hardly do otherwise.
Bears Had Punch
More than any other factor, Cal’s ability" to capitalize on the
Ducks’ miseries spelled victory for the visitors. This is one of the
prime attributes of any championship contender, and the Bears
showed that they know where to be when opportunity knocks.
.’What they would come up with if faced with an opponent who
didn’t make mistakes can only be surmised, since they were un
able to promote a sustained offensive from deep within their own
territory. It’s probably safe to assume, though, that Waldorf had
a few cards up his sleeve which he chose not to play against the
Bear Hunting Again
Turning our gaze towards the Ducks’ next foe, Montana,
the situation there doesn’t look as cozy as it did before the week
end. The Grizzlies were long a doormat for PCC elevens while
a conference member, so much so, in fact, that they are now go
ing their separate way. The history of their gridiron associations
with Oregon is a happy one only if viewed from the local side of
the ledger, since it shows a fopr out of four record for the Ducks.
But, as we started to say, this season’s Montana crew may make
Oregon work harder for its win than have past teams. The Griz
zlies disposed of Idaho Saturday in a 28-27 thriller which was
supposed to go the other way. The Vandals, by Coach Dixie
HoweU'sipwn admission, are fielding the strongest outfit to come
out of Moscow in recent years, which may be indicative of the
caliber of Montana. At any rate, the Webfoots will be loaded for
bear for the third straight weekend and their chances will be
better than they were against either the Bruins of UCLA or Cal’s
Wise Money Was Right
Although they were treated rather rudely elsewhere across
the country, the boys who lay the odds had their predictions come
out almost on the nose in the Cal-Oregon clash. The betting
gentry had the Bears on top by 20 points, which turned out to be
one point shy of the Cal margin. Various and sundry sports
writers contributed predictions which ranged from six points
to five touchdowns in favor of Cal, which is a point in favor of
Bruins on Top
Though it’s still too early, of course, to draw any concrete
conclusions about the eventual outcome, the coast conference
Ace has begun to take shape. UCLA, on the strength of its two
opening victories over Oregon and WSC, is on top for the mo
ment. Washington, Stanford, and USC, all of which have their
supporters when the talk gets around to the 1950 conference
championship, won’t see conference action until this Saturday,
however. Washington, which gave the coast's prestige a shot in
the arm by virtue of its convincing victory over Minnesota, en
gages UCLA in Seattle in an important test for both teams.
Stanford treks to Corvallis for a skirmish with the Beavers,
whose opening loss to Michigan State takes on a different hue
when viewed in the light of MSC’s victory over Michigan. USC
also comes north to meet WSC at Pullman.
Looking backwards again, there were a few things, which we
saw on Multnomah’s turf Saturday which proved that there may
be worse places from which to watch a football game than the
fifth row in the end zone—as long as the field glasses are close
at hand. For instance, there was the look of surprise on Cal
quarterback Brent Ogden’s face as he was swarmed under from
behind while trying to spot a receiver and the look of nonchalance
Earl Stelle wore as he lined up behind the center. Then there was
Oregon’s big moment when Monte Brethauer snatched Tommy
Edward’s fumble from the clutches of one of the Bears to put the
Ducks into the scoring column for the first time in 1950. There
was the time Hal Cuffel gave a Cal tackier an armful of air with
abswing of his hips, and the smile Chuck Missfeldt wore as he
went into the Bear line.
