The Bear Republic Podcast is back, with the old duo of publisher Ryan Gorcey and Jon Doss, thanks to VSporto, and in the second episode this week of the Bear Republic Podcast, we start off by addressing just what the expectations are for California quarterback Jared Goff, who was named to the Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List this morning, adding to his already-impressive preseason haul.

Can he lift the Bears out of the doldrums and become the first Cal quarterback drafted since Aaron Rodgers in 2005? What makes Goff such a hot pro commodity?

In total, where does Goff stand?

In our second segment, we break down what Cal’s getting in the 10 commitments the Bears reeled in over the past month.
