Tedford Out

Can't say I'm surprised by this news.  Last season I was experiencing what Cal fans experienced this season, except Neuheisel did not have a fraction of the positive impact on UCLA football that Tedford's had on Cal football.  In fact, it's really hard to overstate the impact of Jeff Tedford.  In 2005, Cal was just a whiny Mack Brown away from going to the Rose Bowl.  Just looking at the list of current NFL players to come through Tedford's program is an impressive list: Rodgers, Lynch, Jackson, Forsett, Best, etc.  I'm sure you can add others.

(California) Bar Results

For the Class of 2012 hoping to practice in California, today will either be a relief or it will suck.  Either way, results for the California bar exam will FINALLY be released tonight at 6:00 p.m. Feel free to vent anxiety now, celebrate later, or ask what is next in the unfortunate case that bad news arrives.

Best of luck to everyone; alcohol poisoning is a dangerous thing.

Have Strong Thoughts on Recruiting?

A reporter for The Recorder is looking to write an article on this year's on-campus recruiting with a very tight deadline.  If you're a current 2L and you're willing to share your thoughts, please reach out to Julia directly at jlove at alm-dot-com.  Or if you want to anonymously share your thoughts, post them below.  If I have any free time today, I may go back to earlier OCIP threads and run Deltaview on the firms that recruited from Berkeley then versus now.  Should be an interesting comparison.

Election Open Thread

Consider this your election day / night open thread.  I am too busy to create election night coverage drinking game, but if you really want to get wasted, take a drink anytime someone mentions "middle America" or "rural/suburban families."  Instead, if you think you're a political hot shot, then go ahead and try to predict the answers to these questions:

1.  Winner of the Presidency is: __________.

2.  We will know the winner by:  __________ (date and time in PST).

3.  The winning (and by this I mean clinching the 270 mark) Electoral votes will come from the State (or Commonwealth or District) of __________.

4.  Winner will receive _______ Electoral College votes.

5.  The winner will receive ____ % of the popular vote.

6.  The winner will receive ________ total popular votes.

7.  Most important issue according to the exit polls will be _________.

8.  The breakdown of the Senate will be: __ D, ___ R, ___ I (bonus points if you correctly identify who the independent Senators will caucus with).

9.  __________ will win the Massachusetts Senate race.

10.  The GOP will gain/lose ______ seats in the House.

These are fairly straight forward.  But then again, this is an open thread so you can add questions of your own or talk about whatever else is bugging you (insert panicked 1L voice, "what the hell is replevin?").
