SAN FRANCISCO -- The Bear Republic had a special surprise guest this week in former California linebacker Jarred Price, who dropped in on us toward the end of the podcast to talk some Bears football.
Be sure to stay tuned to the two-hour mark of the podcast to listen to Price talk about the Bears' defense and the game this weekend against UCLA.
This game week edition of The Bear Republic Podcast comes to you, as always, from The Republic, at 3213 Scott St., in the Marina District of San Francisco: the best place to watch all of the Pac-12 action this weekend.
Today, publisher Ryan Gorcey and the best crew a few free pitchers of beer can buy -- Jon Doss, Danny Freisinger and Robert Kenneth Clampett -- break down last week's Cal victory over Utah and this weekend's clash against the Bruins.
The Bruins are hosting their Homecoming this weekend, and what a time to do it. After a pants-off face-off last week in Tucson, UCLA returns home with six players suspended for Saturday's contest against the Bears, including several top receivers and a starting offensive lineman.
If you think Cal has quarterback issues, look no further than Westwood for solace. Starting Bruins QB Richard Brehaut is out with a broken leg, and Kevin Prince isn't much of an improvement, with a 53.4 completion percentage.
