The Bear Republic Podcast Returns

After a too-long hiatus, the Bear Republic Podcast has returned, and in our first episode, we set our sights on the offseason Cal basketball has enjoyed, and bring in a national expert to talk about just where the Bears stand next season.

Segment 1: 2015 Hoops Class, Rabb, Brown, Cuonzo's Recruiting and a Welcome Back

Segment 2: Matt Trabold Joins Us to Talk Cal Basketball in the National Conversation

Segment 3: Hoops Recruiting

The Bear Republic Podcast is back, with the old duo of publisher Ryan Gorcey and Jon Doss, thanks to VSporto, and in our first episode, we break down the California basketball team’s recruiting coup this offseason.

[FEATURE: Why Not Cal?]

Ivan Rabb and Jaylen Brown are now on campus, joining former five-star Jabari Bird as Cuonzo Martin embarks on his second season as Cal head coach. Arizona head coach Sean Miller has said that the Bears “can win the national championship,” but is that too much to hope for? We talk about where Cal stands – and should stand – nationally, with national analyst Matt Trabold.

Next up for Martin and his staff is the July open viewing period, and after bringing in forward Roman Davis to replace Davon Dillard, the Cal coaches are on the hunt again.


At the end of July, every Bears basketball target in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 classes will be playing in Las Vegas, and the coaches will be fanning out to watch them.

Remember to join us on Thursday night, when we dig into Sonny Dykes and the 2015 Cal football team.
