Carpenter doubtful

On Wednesday Dennis Erickson downgraded senior quarterback Rudy Carpenter's status to doubtful, meaning junior Danny Sullivan is about to get thrown onto one of the biggest college football stages possible to make his first collegiate start.

Carpenter was without the protective boot over his injured ankle on Wednesday but was still limping heavily. Erickson said that he has been impressed with Sullivan's performance in practice this week. No amount of practice, though, can prepare the first-time starter for a game like this.

I think Carpenter might still be suffering from that torn labia he suffered against USC last year.

Do you think Rudy got what he deserved for talking so much trash last year? Cal's defenders sure seemed to have a burr in their ass to get a hit on him.
