Reestablishing the Gold in Bear Territory

California-Golden-Bears-logo-black-and-gold   Reestablishing the Gold in Bear Territory After finishing the season 3-9 and with a conference record of 2-7, change was needed. Cal Berkeley finally dismissed long time head coach Jeff Tedford after ten years. To his credit, Tedford leaves Cal as the all time leader in wins, games coached, and bowl game victory's. The expectations ran high after a $445 million dollar investment to Memorial Stadium and a new student athletic center. The Tedford decade is referred to as the golden age of Cal football, but we hope the best is yet to come. The athletic department hired Sonny Dykes as the new head coach in early December. Dykes spent his early career working under Hal Mumme as an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky in 1997 and 1999. He later worked under Texas Tech' head coach Mike Leach from 2000-2006. In 2010, Dykes was hired as head coach by Louisiana Tech University. Too much success, he finished with an overall record of 22-15. In 2012, his offense averaged 577.9 yards per game, which led the nation. The head coach position wasn't the only change to the Golden Bears' coaching staff. Tony Franklin was hired as the new offensive coordinator. Franklin spent the past three years working under Sonny Dykes at Louisiana Tech. Andy Buh has also been named defensive coordinator. He spent last season as the linebacker coach for the University of Wisconsin. Buh, pronounced boo, was previously the defensive coordinator for the University of Nevada in 2010-2011 and at Stanford 2007-2009. With practice underway, the Golden Bears have a few obstacles to overcome. Sonny Dykes is inheriting a team that was built for Tedford's conservative style, rather than a high tempo offense. It will take sometime for th...

"But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?"

Section 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum", written by Cicero in 45 BC

"At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga. Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus. Temporibus autem quibusdam et aut officiis debitis aut rerum necessitatibus saepe eveniet ut et voluptates repudiandae sint et molestiae non recusandae. Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat." 1914 translation by H.

"On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains."
