Huh? What just happened? Cal regressed without Jared Goff, though Davis Webb certainly looks the part. Still, a 5-7 record is probably about what the expectation was for this season, and it was apparently good enough for coach Sonny Dykes to be in the mix for the head jobs at both Baylor and Houston. College football is weird.
