Wow... Quite the melodrama down in Berkeley...

And to just quit mid season on all those players who chose Cal over other opportunities after 2 tough losses? Shameful.

Disgusting. What does that teach your players? To quit if you have a few hard days? How must the players feel about themselves and their confidence? What a horrible move.

You have to wonder what this guy has going on behind the scenes. I mean, to just quit? Very odd. by the sound of the quotes by his players, doesn't sound like they would be thrilled to have him back either.

The lack of "we wish him the best" and "hope he comes back soon" sentiments by the players are quite telling.

Good riddance.

You have to wonder why Kelley Lindsey was brought in as a "volunteer coach"

I think something was up between Mcguire and the AD or something. It also sounds like the players won't miss him.

I suspect it wasn't just the SAC State game. he might have lost touch with his players, maybe over that change to the 3-4-3 and their success with it.

Ther must be a lot of (stuff) going on behind the scenes that people at Cal can't or won't talk about ... yet. What a mess! Too bad that a talented team has to endure this type of BS.

I just looked up Cal's 2010 class - pretty impressive, with a number of players with various types of national team experience. The coach seemed to have things headed in the right direction, recruit-wise. Maybe he's just a crummy coach.

I am not familiar with any of their recruits, but I have heard of Bennett, and I notice she is from up UP's way. Let's hope she sees the light.

It sounds from the article that the Cal coach has an anger management problem. He would to well to look to Garrett Smith as a role model for how to properly handle anger. When Garrett got pissed off on Sunday he got up off the bench (!), gathered his girls around him for a talk (!!) , and told them to gather their stuff and go straight to the locker room after the game (!!!). For a coach who rarely leaves the bench during the game, this was the equivalent of going through the roof.

I do feel sorry for the Cal players. They had a good season going until the 2 recent losses. After their opening loss to Portland, they had strung together 6 wins and a draw and were ranked in the top 10. I hope that they can right their ship and do well in PAC-10 play, if only for the sake of Portland's RPI.

And just like that, he's back.

I don't really care about Cal either way, but I'm offended on behalf of those girls. That coach is wantonly wasting the time of those student-athletes with his baloney. I wonder whose best interests the athletic director has in mind with the decision to bring him back.

Obviously there is more to the story than we know, and I hope he gets things worked out. Still, I dont like it... you dont just quit on your team.

If you are having outside issues, there are much better ways to handle a "leave" that to just up and quit... but then to be back a couple days later? Suspect

The coach may be back for the time being, but the damage has been done. Word on the street is Cal is already looking for a replacement for next year. Someone who will not leave no matter how bad it gets. I heard this guy is at the top of the short list:



He's already wearing the right colors.

I think I sat Next to that guy last year.

With that inspiration, I'm wearing my Boca shirt tonight....

Now if I can just find my Ché hat.
