College news bonus:

ESPN is trying to help the rest of the world discover the great team that is Cal.


  1. Good piece on Cal. I think another great storyline for Cal / Louisville is the coaches. Even though Walz coached the Cards when they lost to UConn back in 2009 he hasn't had much national exposure and of course Gottlieb is interesting with her relative youth, Ivy League pedigree and coaching style also.

    It's good to see some new coaches in the limelight. Shakes things up a bit and hopefully pushes everyone to reconsider some of their approaches to the profession.
