    Bears told to “Hang in There” after losing to Arizona on a Hail Mary pass
    From the San Jose Mercury News … When it was over, and Cal had lost 49-45 at Arizona after allowing 36 fourth-quarter points, including a “Hail Mary” touchdown pass on the final play, coach Sonny Dykes’ message to his team was equal parts sympathy and philosophy with a dash of defiance.

    “Just hang in there, get over it, learn from it,” he said. “I told them I was proud of them for playing hard, sorry we couldn’t win the game. And I told them it won’t happen again.”

    The Bears, four seconds from a 3-0 start to their season, could barely digest losing a game they led 14-0 after less than four minutes in and 28-6 at halftime. They led 45-30 with less than four minutes left before the Wildcats scored three more touchdowns.

    “So painful,” quarterback Jared Goff said late Saturday night from Arizona Stadium.

    “Very difficult,” defensive end Brennan Scarlett said.

    Dykes, trying to see the big picture on a night when few could get past Anu Solomon’s 47-yard winning pass to Austin Hill, said these are the painful steps a team must take a year after going 1-11.

    “You lose games like this, then you figure out how to win,” he said. “That’s part of the process of building a program.”

    Premature email from merchandise company congratulates Cal on “win” over Arizona
    From ESPN … An amazing comeback by the University of Arizona became a little bit more painful for Cal fans on Saturday night.
    An email sent by the athletic department’s official store, sent moments before the Wildcats completed their comeback with a Hail Mary, congratulated the Bears on the win and offered 25 percent off the merchandise. Like most schools, Cal’s store is run by an independent contractor. The site is run by Gameday Merchandise out of Littleton, Colorado, and has deals to run the official shops of both Cal and Oregon State.
    Arizona was losing 31-13 heading into the fourth quarter on Saturday night. The team scored 36 points in the quarter, including a 47-yard Hail Mary as time expired to beat the Bears, 49-45.
    A message left at a number listed at the corporate headquarters was not immediately returned, but the store’s Twitter handle tweeted out an apology.
