6:52 pm
but he's yet to play a single regular season game for the red and gold. best guess is mckinnon goes on injured reserve. the question is whether they bring him back after eight weeks. they let him rehab for another full season. this is the first big weekend of college football. stanford schedule is so brutal. david shaw welcomes northwestern to the farm tomorrow afternoon. this is the start of a cupcake free slate for the cardinals. sanford quarterback k.j. knows they got to come out of the gates ready to roll. >> thinking about our schedule and how every week, our pr preparation doesn't change because every game is so big in our lives. >> i have an idea of what our team is but you never know until you play real football games. got a bunch of guys we'll rule out on saturday that didn't play a lot of college football. we expect them to play hard and fast and do their job and do it
6:53 pm
well and excited for saturday and can't wait to get going. >> the cal bears open up at home in strawberry canyon tomorrow afternoon against u.c. davis. during the years, the bears were known for basically a ton of points but no defense at all. now they are being toted for one of the best in the country with a lot of the same guys. the secondary is spectacular. justin wilcox glad to see the progression but knows every year is different. >> those guys have done really nice job kind of taking their next step, so to speak but it's a new year. it's a new group. the chemistry is different. our strengths and weaknesses are different. i'm excited and they are too to go out there and toast oest our for the first time. college football is back and so is after the game. chris alvarez will join me. we're following the oregon auburn game. complete highlights from the top local and national games. little tennis.

great athlete finishing up the second match at the u.s. open. 360 spin. and slam so finish off the match. no dunking in tennis, is there? that's like vince carter with a tennis racket and i do like the nest nestee plunge. kids remember that? it used to be a commercial, guys. on to round three. let's enjoy music, shall we? that percussion player is kind of tall. look, it's bill walton. the hall of famer. he played all five hours at a show at the tweet water music hall last night. the deads bob owns the salt water. he's on a book tour in reality. he's just wondering the country being bill walton. >> rhythm there, too. >> i'm not sure anybody has a better time day in and day out in bill walton. it's great. he had so many injuries from his
6:55 pm
nba days and went through excruciating back pain and had surgery and obviously better and doing great. >> that's great. thanks, larry. >> join us tonight for abc 7 news at 1 11:00. i'm in pleasanton where a mom says her 5-year-old son was able to squeeze through a fence and get off campus unnoticed. we're speaking to the school district. more at 11:00. coming up is "american housewife" and "fresh off the boat" followed by "what would you do" at 10:00 and "20/20" and stick around, jimmy kimmel live comes on at 11:35. a few thoughts about what really matters. i'll watch my language but i'm about to do trash talking. calling people out for a serious problem that is completely unacceptable and yet, we've become so used to it we hardly notice anymore. the trash talking i'm talking about is trash. it's everywhere and an eyesore and a blight in our communities.
6:56 pm
i've done reporting recently on abc 7 here and on my facebook page, as well. most recently the 98th avenue exit off 880 on the way to the oakland airport. it's lined with garbage and one of the last things visitors see before they fly back home. i called oakland 311 anonymously and reported it, but it's still a mess as of a few days ago. now, i'm not picking on oakland. it's a huge problem, as well in san francisco and san jose and so many of our smaller commune tips in cities, as well. you see garbage all over the place these days and it's easy to blame those who are charged with cleaning up the trash and they do need to do a better job but what matters is they wouldn't have to do so much better job and deal with so much litter if more people would act right and stop dumping their trash all over one of the most beautiful areas on the planet. it's a shame to see. i always love to hear from you.
