Glad they decided to pull out of this.  Nice letter from Sandy, too.   

Now hopefully folks will put away their pitchforks and torches, step off their soapboxes, and focus on supporting our university and its teams.

Go Bears!

Glad this is over sooner rather than later.  Now the bitching will hopefully stop, but I doubt it.......

And no need for high priced consultants ... Post Rating (2 votes)


"We reached out to a number of our alumni, students, donors and ticket holders,
and we received valuable feedback from them. In addition, many other fans
expressed their views, and we listened to — and are grateful for — what they
told us. We also consulted frequently with campus leadership. Only then, after
considering each of these factors, did we arrive at the conclusion that it is
not in Cal’s best interest to move forward with the offer. "

It's unusual for the Girls' Vice Principal to decide anything without ordering up a study from some high priced blowhard. Why not this time?
