The more persistent question is whether head coach Jeff Tedford is on his way to being sacked at the end of the season. Four losses in the first five games means the Bears certain to finish unranked for the sixth consecutive season, and barring multiple upsets down the stretch, they're well on their way to a second losing season in the last three. The momentum from the early years of the Tedford administration has fizzled. The balance of power in the Bay Area has long shifted to Stanford. The long-awaited renovations to the stadium and facilities are finally finished. Even if his quarterback survives the season, it's looking increasingly likely that Tedford will not.
