BERKELEY – Cal was back in full pads for the second time in the last three practices during a practice session open to the public Wednesday afternoon at Kabam Field at California Memorial Stadium. Highlights and notes from the live team period during the Golden Bears’ sixth practice session of the spring included …

Head Coach Sonny Dykes
On the team’s live action
“It was sloppy at times. We’ve just got to get better with details. We’ve got to get that stuff worked out, and it’s about that time in spring that it needs to get done. We’ve got to improve in that regard. But the effort has been good and guys are doing what we’ve asked them to do.”

On the team’s offensive line
“They’re obviously a lot better. They know what they’re doing. We’re having some continuity in some spots and there’s a semblance of depth … I think we’re a year stronger in the weight room. I think we’re a year more physical. I think we’re a year in better shape. There’s a lot of positives.”

On his relationship with first-year defensive coordinator Art Kaufman
“We think the same. We both have the same approach to teaching and coaching and what the game is about from a simplicity standpoint and the focus on fundamentals. When you hire somebody you always think you have a lot in common. Typically you find out there’s less than you anticipated, but I think with Art it’s been more than we anticipated. We’re on the same page, and I feel good about it.”
