More buffoonery to share with you all this Friday before game day. DeWayne Walker, the defensive genius has figured out the key to stop the prolific Cal offense:
Yet, what has Walker's immediate interest is in the Bears' backfield, where Justin Forsett, the leading rusher in the Pacific 10 Conference, lurks.
"I know last year we kind of went into the game [against California] worrying about the passing game," Walker said. "Having a chance to study them, they know how to run the football. I just think you always have stop the run first."
Colorado State is the only team to hold Forsett under 100 yards this season -- he gained 59 yards in 13 carries. He has gained more than 150 yards in three games.
Osaar Rasshan, a scholarship quarterback, is listed as the third string at the position. The redshirt sophomore moved to receiver this year but never had a catch and didn't see the field much. With injuries to Olson (knee) and Cowan, Rasshan was moved back to quarterback.
Bethel-Thompson and Rasshan shared equal reps this week.
"(Mac) has the most experience," Dorrell said. "He's played. He's been entrenched in the offense longer. We're going to keep bringing Osaar along.
"I'm encouraged by what he's done. I know that he can do something for us if need be. He's prepared to play, that's the biggest thing."
Asked if Rasshan would remain at quarterback for the remainder of the season, Dorrell was hesitant to commit to that.
"Yes, well for now," Dorrell said. "I hate when you say the rest of the season. You just never ... Yes, he is there for now, which could be the rest of the season."
Karl Dorrell was considerably more animated in practice on Wednesday, and here's why:
``Coaching Hard,'' Dorrell said. ``Coaching hard. Trying to get ourselves to take advantage of an opportunity we have. I like how our players are responding. Coaches are coaching hard. I'm coaching hard. There's a lot to look forward to.''
