“The way they say it, and it’s absolutely right, it’s almost like learning a different language,” Goff said, via the San Jose Mercury News. “I felt like I picked it up as I went along, and it got better.”
For now, though, Goff will need to put away the playbook. He’ll still need to study, but for something entirely different, yet equally difficult.
Goff is heading home to Berkeley for finals week at Cal.
Jared Goff is headed back to Berkeley next week for exams, but he should be back in Oxnard with the Rams on the weekend.

For some reason, I’m guessing he’s not nearly as stressed as any of the other students at Cal — probably because of that $18.5 million signing bonus he’ll most likely collect in the near future.
The Raiders and Las Vegas are a perfect marriage on paper, but it’s hard to imagine an NFL team actually moving to Sin City, mainly because of the league’s generally conservative approach to the world of gambling.
However, Mark Davis continues to press forward with the possibility, and all signs and rumors and reports point to the reality of the Raiders landing in the desert. The mayor of Las Vegas certainly seems to think it’s happening and said the city is “not getting played” by ownership.
“Mark Davis has assured us that Las Vegas is not getting played in a Raiders stadium deal,” Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman said, per ESPN.com. “I know we will have a team.”
If a move is going to happen though, Davis is going to need 24 owners to approve it. Three months ago, owner approval seemed like a longshot. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, and that’s mainly thanks to Jones.
The man who spearheaded the Rams’ move seems to be onboard with a possible Raiders’ move. During an interview at a golf tournament in Texas on Wednesday, Jones called Vegas “one of the real crown jewels of communities in the United States.”
