Bear Republic Podcast: Camp Countdown

How does the Bear Raid move forward without its presumptive starting center? A new face may be the answer ...

With the start of fall camp just over two weeks away, it’s time for us to start breaking down the 2015 California football team, position by position, here on the Bear Republic Podcast, powered by VSporto.

We’ll start up front, where a personnel shuffle has put the center position up for grabs. Could true freshman Semisi Uluave take the reins? How do the tackle spots shape up? All that and more can be found in our first segment.

In our second segment, we ask if one Cal receiver has been an overachiever, an underachiever, or exactly what we thought when he was recruited. We also go in-depth on the inside receivers, and which freshman could crack the rotation at the X and Z spots on the outside.

In our third segment, it’s time to talk running backs. Daniel Lasco is once again on the Doak Walker Award Watch List for the second straight season, after posting the first 1,000-yard season for a Bears back since Isi Sofele in 2011. Which 2014 freshmen are ready to mature and take on a bigger role as sophomores? Which true freshman could be a big surprise toting the rock? We talk about all of that, and dig into the backup quarterbacks behind all-everything junior Jared Goff.
