Today's win was against a horrendously bad team that while it had more speed and overall talent than we do has only one win this year, that against an FCS school in a game that was much more competitive than Cal fans expected or wanted. So this certainly isn't a win against a conference leader or top 25 team but it is significant breaking a 14 game conference losing streak. What does it all mean. It does mean that we aren't the worst team in our league this year, a huge step up from last year when we were the worst team in any BCS conference. We also can point to it being our 4th win this season, one ahead of the very common pre-season prediction of 3 (helped by trading Fresno for Charlston Southern but it's still a win.) Considering that our last coach won 4 games in two years this is a milestone. I think it has some other implications for us as well. It gives the kids a reward for not quiting and for continuing to work hard, by this time last year we were done no matter who we had played. I can see it being easier for the coaching staff to keep the attention of the players the next couple weeks and even in the off-season with the kids having felt the satisfaction of a league win. It also gives the coaches something more to sell in recruiting. It shows progress that can help convince kids that better days are in CU's future. It also means that when kids visit the current players have more reason to share optimism and a belief in the team and the staff. The fans who go to the games are also big winners. We are definately not at a point where fans can believe that any time they go to a game they have a chance to see a win but it helps them to think that buying tickets means they will see some wins unlike last year. We are also now tied in the standings with Utah. Utah's wins have been more impressive than ours but now we can at least reasonably hope for not just one but a second conference win which would pull us out of the basement in our division as well. For almost any other team this win wouldn't have meant that much but for where we have been and still are this win was huge.
