Tedford's Puzzling QB Indecision

The California Golden Bears have dropped their last two games by a combined score of 72-6. In those two losses to the Oregon Ducks and the USC Trojans, the Bears are 15-of-46 on third down conversions. Against the Ducks Cal QB Kevin Riley was 12-of-31 for 123 yards, and against the Trojans Riley completed 15-of-40 for 199 yards and 1 interception.

I don’t have a problem with Riley having bad games, but I do question Jeff Tedford’s resistance to putting in a different QB. This has been an issue with the Bears program for the last couple of seasons.

Former Bears QB Nate Longshore had a lot of bad games, but kept his job. Riley took over for Longshore for the last couple of games last year, but Tedford went right back to Longshore for the Emerald Bowl. Cal has been lacking consistent play at the QB position since Aaron Rodgers left for the NFL.
