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."
