Should we just assume that Cal will have a stout defense again?

We predict that Cal will have an outstanding defense every season. And this year is no different. But are we taking too much for granted this time around, given that so many 2021 standout defenders are gone?

You can see why this presumption is made. Cal hasn’t finished worse than fourth in the Pac-12 in total defense in any of the last four seasons, a stat that’s more impressive when you consider that the Bears’ mediocre offense puts extra pressure on the defense, forcing to be active the field is longer without room for errors.
