PODCAST: The Last Dan-ce

In this week's edition of the Bear Republic Podcast, we break down what we learned from the Cal basketball team's NCAA Tournament appearance, what the future holds for the Bears on the hardwood, as well as the positional battles of spring football.


BERKELEY -- It's the Last Dan-ce, as we bid farewell to beloved colleague Dan Greenspan with a full hour and a half talking Cal basketball's present and future after a third-round NCAA Tournament exit, and of course, what we learned from 15 practices of spring football.

Who's going to be the most important player on next year's Cal basketball team? Will Allen Crabbe leave for the NBA? Should he leave? What will the lineup look like next season? We discuss that in our first half hour.

We finish up with an hour talking football, as we break down the good, the bad and everything in between from the Bears' spring practice slate and spring game. Who stuck out on each side of the ball? Did the starting quarterback race get any clearer? Who's the best choice to guide the Cal offense in 2013? Where are the strong points in the defense, and where do the Bears need to improve? We talk about all that, and more, so don't miss a minute.
