AUDIO: Paul Wulff weekly press conference

After a week off for the bye, Paul Wulff returned today for his weekly teleconference with reporters in advance of Saturday's matchup with Cal. I gotta be honest -- this is one of the most boring press conferences ever. But give it a listen if you so desire.

Items of note:

  • Injuries made up a huge portion of it. Likely to play: Guard Zack Williams, defensive tackle Bernard Wolfgramm, center Kenny Alfred, middle linebacker Alex Hoffman-Ellis. Better than 50 percent chance to play: Guard B.J. Guerra, tackle Steven Ayers. Less than 50 percent chance to play: Tackle Tyson Pencer.
  • Looks like defensive end Kevin Kooyman isn't getting any better. An injury redshirt application is becoming more and more likely.
  • Defensive tackle Josh Luapo had successful knee surgery. He's still out for the year.
  • Myron Beck has more or less completed a switch back to full-time safety, which gives the team the chance to put Chima Nwachukwu back at corner some with the season-ending injury to Daniel Simmons.
  • The team really emphasized mental preparation and maturity in setting goals for the second half of the season.
  • Jahvid Best is good.
  • Cal's main problem against Oregon and USC? The passing game.
