Would Cal Trade “The Play” For A # 1 Ranking?

Posted: October 20, 2007 in Technology and Business
Exactly seven days ago, Cal could have been ranked #1 in the country for the first time in something like 56 years.
What an amazing, amazing honor it would have been.
What utter heartbreak for Cal when their game-tying drive completely, utterly, and abruptly came to a stop with 10 seconds left on the clock.
I wonder, in their misery, if Cal would trade "The Play" (vs. Stanford, 1982 Big Game) for a clock stoppage at the end of last week’s game?
Hmmm… the first #1 ranking in 56 years… or — as difficult as this is for me to admit — the greatest ending to a football game EVER… ?
For any Cal fans actually contemplating that one, well, that really would make you a Cal weenie.
P.S.  Believe me, I wish Cal had won and gotten a #1 ranking… Cal would have been favored by probably another 10 points for Big Game… and Stanford could use those points!
