Tailgating parties make smooth move to new stadium
Question of the Day
Roger Dixon, who heads the agency that operates the stadium, said the antics didn’t result in discipline.
“We’ve got a young crew out there that’s very energetic and very proud of our facility and they enjoy it,” Dixon said. “They did this on their own.
“No one is in trouble. It was a little bit of comic relief that decreased some of the tension in the stadium. Would I want them to do it again? Probably not. Am I going to say you can’t do that again? No.”
Dennis Poppe, NCAA vice president for football and baseball, wasn’t upset, either.
“This may not be a normal NCAA response,” Poppe said, “but I kind of liked it. Those guys are doing the job and having fun. I hope they don’t hurt themselves.”
CAL COACH HONORED: California coach David Esquer had two things to celebrate Tuesday: his team’s 7-3 victory over Texas A&M in an elimination game and being honored as the National College Baseball Writers Association coach of the year.
Esquer’s program was targeted for demise last year before being saved by a $9 million fundraising effort. The Bears finished sixth in the Pac-10 and made it through super regionals after a close call in regionals.
The Bears bounced back Tuesday after a 4-1 loss to No. 1 national seed Virginia on Saturday.
“You can’t be a good coach without good players,” he said. “It’s been really, really gratifying and humbling to have both in one day.”
