Cal's Sonny Dykes said quarterback transfer Davis Webb has already made an impression on everybody with his work ethic. "He comes from a culture at Texas Tech, and I was a part of that culture with Mike Leach," Dykes said. "That culture still exists today ... that the quarterbacks work harder than anybody in the program."

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Cal coach Sonny Dykes offered words of support for his strength coach Damon Harrington, who was the focus of a recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle that painted him in a negative light in the aftermath of two off-field incidents. "Anybody who knows anything about our program knows the positive impact he has made on our program," Dykes said.
