It's now year two of the Sonny Dykes era at Cal, and from the looks of things through four games, Cal has their swagger back.
Two of their three wins this season (Northwestern and Colorado) have been by a combined 10 points, and their close loss to Arizona (45-49) looks a whole lot better after the Wildcats upset #2 Oregon last night.
This hype video for their game against Washington State tomorrow is a great snapshot of the change that has happened from year one to year two.
The players are flying around and making plays, they seem to be more confident and comfortable in the scheme and are just flat out playing like they've regained their swagger following a 1-11 season in 2013.
Their remaining schedule (@ Washington State, Washington, UCLA, Oregon, @ Oregon State, @USC, Stanford, BYU) isn't going to be easy, but bowl eligibility is certainly within grasp for the Golden Bears.
