Ltd.Gov. Gavin Newsom wants reform... 


From the article:

Fresno State and Sacramento State, which are part of the CSU system, and Cal are all in the process of finding new athletic directors, which is where Newsom believes reform can begin.

"I'm going to be very aggressive on these contracts," Newsom said. "There should be penalties, not just bonuses attached to academic success. We have it backwards right now.

Just what we need...an uber liberal meddling SF politician inserting himself into an area where he doesn't belong. 

What's next?  Nancy Pelosi in charge of Head Coaching decisions...

I think we all need to contact Newsome.  Since he is so interested in Athletics suddenly, maybe we can get him to tie a stipulation that the two public Universities in California that have the highest graduation rates represent the state of California in the PAC-12.

I mean come on now, if being included in the Elite PAC-12 is all about the institutions Academic Reputation then I would think Graduation Rates should play a deciding factor in Inclusion.

If he is so interested in Athletics suddenly where has he been in supporting the California State Universities in the whole realignment of NCAA football?

Here is an Idea.  How about providing additional funding to the athletic programs of the Universities in California if they maintain a certain graduation rate?

He's missing the root of the problem. After slashing funding to California's schools, and furthering the gap between suburban and inner city institutions, he now expects these kids to show up as advanced scholars. Never mind the fact that Cal and other institutions regularly grant exemptions to athletes who would never sniff being admitted to some of these institutions absent such exemptions. To place the onus on the ADs is misplaced and misguided. If you want better students, and better people, you better invest in their future at a young age or you're simply putting a band-aid on the problem.

Adam Carolla completely shredded Newsome in an interview on Adam's podcast a while back.  Dude is not a pro.

Newsome isn't stupid, but he is a spineless liar.

Depending on how in depth this search will be, it may be the perfect time to hire a new AD. If they can find the right one (which I think Castro already has someone in mind), complete negotiations and sign the contract  prior to them getting this reform in place it won't scare off as many candidates.

Sounds like he has all the making to be the perfect politiician: spineless liar and a phoney.

If Newsome had any brains he would call for the end of the UC and CSU systems as we know it, and the creation of a combined CU system,.  The California University system would be the envy of the world, include both the UC and CSU schools and eliminate all the middle men and duplicated administration and bloat that the two systems have.  We don't have two Caltrans, two Highway Patrols, two DMV's, two BOE's, etc.  It's a complete waste of public resources.

COMPLETELY AGREE....How can he support a two class education structure as is evidenced by the funding for the UC's vs that of the CSU's and also think that such disproportionate funding benefits student academics at the CSU's?

Gavin need to catch up with whats happening at Fresno State. High Academic performance is a standard all coaches and athletes are held accountble to . Castro will make sure next AD continues these standards.

From another article:

He suggested financial stipulations based on academic performance be placed into every new athletic director's contract and, eventually, reworking existing contracts around the state.

In the letter to White, he highlighted the Fresno State men's golf team's most recent GSR of 29

Newsom, a UC Regent and former mayor of San Francisco, said he has called for hearings at both of the state's academic governing bodies to discuss changes in athletic directors' contracts and expects those meetings to take place in the next few months. He also said he would be "very critical" of any new contract — including those for coaches — that comes before the Regents for approval.

If you're gonna make an argument, at least make one that makes sense even if you're being a little sarcastic.  The Pac-12 decides who gets to be in the Pac-12.  Politicians can't force Cal or UCLA out and they can't force the Pac-12 to take two schools of their own choosing who may play their sports in Div. II or even III and who may not even have a football team.  It just doesn't work that way.

Politicians. Could defund Cal and UCLA. They could do a lot of bad things to any UC or CSU. Legislatures have coerced/impacted conference decisions before. It's happened in Washington and TX.

If u are familiar with Gavin Newsom, you know he is an ultra liberal from San Fran who could care less about sports and is only interested in promoting himself. He helped lead the last GLTG parade in SF and wouldn't know the difference between a football and basketball.
