Should we assume Cal will have a strong defense again?

We’ve come to expect Cal to have a great defense every season. And this year is no different. But with so many standout defenders gone from 2021, are we taking too little this time around?

You can see why this assumption is made. Cal hasn’t finished worse than fourth in the Pac-12 in total defense in any of the past four seasons, a statistic that’s even more impressive when you consider that the Bears’ typical offense puts more pressure on the defense, forcing it to be active. Field long with no wiggle room for error.
