Cal concluded spring practice on Saturday with a scrimmage in Berkeley.
Offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Tony Franklin summarized the day by saying, "It was ugly. I say it for you. It was ugly."
"Overall, the rhythm was bad. We never could get a good rhythm going, so I thought it was a little ugly, but it's not going to take away from the spring. I thought we had a really good spring."
"Our defense really hadn't blitzed any all spring. A couple of days ago, they put a couple of things in. That's more my fault than it is the players fault. I didn't prepare them for what they saw today. There was so stuff today that I had not prepared them for; that's really poor coaching on my part and that won't happen again, but it was a poor job on my part."
Sonny Dykes shared more of a glass half-full summary.
"I pleased overall with what we got done today."
Dykes said, "We got some stuff done, but it wasn't always pretty. It was a little bit like surgery with a chainsaw. There was stuff flying around everywhere, but we got something done."
"The good thing was that they (3 quarterbacks) all got hit and survived."
