---This may make UB fans cringe considering the team's quarterback woes of last season, but former Bulls QB Zach Maynard took every rep with the first team during a controlled scrimmage Saturday, and will likely enter training camp as Cal's starter. The play of Maynard has already caused one QB to leave the school.
Maynard, you may recall, transferred from UB shortly after Jeff Quinn was hired as Turner Gill's replacement. Maynard attended a junior college before enrolling at Cal where his half brother, Keenan Allen, set a Cal single-season record for true freshmen for receptions with 46.
Maynard earned the starting job at UB as a sophomore in 2009, completing 57.5 percent of his passes for 2,694 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Maynard also had 455 rushing yards before transferring to Cal, where he could give a coach Jeff Tedford's offense a dimension it hasn't had since he coached Akili Smith at Oregon in 1998-99.
