The 2005 California Golden Bears football team represented the University of California, Berkeley in the college football 2005-2006 season. They played their home games at California Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, California and were coached by Jeff Tedford.
Despite losing Nate Longshore in the season opener for the remainder of the year, the Bears would get off to their best start since Steve Mariucci coached them in 1996, starting the season 5-0. But the Bears would stumble and lose 4 of their next 5 games, partly due to poor quarterback play and costly turnovers and mental errors. The team would end up in the 2005 Las Vegas Bowl, where they would beat BYU 35-28.

“Im not making light of prayers here, but of so-called school prayer, which bears as much resemblance to real spiritual experience as that freeze-dried astronaut food bears to a nice standing rib roast.

—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

Yet thieves break in and steal the gold.”
