Trojan War

Focuses on the accomplishments of University of California football coach Jeff Tedford. After California's 34-31 upset of No. 3 USC in triple overtime last Saturday, the Bears sang in their locker room with Cal alum and Berkeley native Adam Duritz, the dreadlocked songwriter and lead singer of the Counting Crows. Bears coach Jeff Tedford can't match Duritz's musical talents, but as the Trojans found out, Tedford is just as creative in his own way. Already renowned as a quarterback guru, Tedford added to his reputation as one of college football's brightest offensive minds with a beautifully devised game plan that confounded USC's defense, especially in the first half. The Bears rolled up 469 yards of offense, the most the Trojans have allowed all season, and senior running back Adimchinobe Echemandu rushed for 147 yards, breaking a streak of 16 straight games in which USC had not allowed a runner to gain 100 yards.
