    Jamie Pollard Smarter Than Cal's Admin

    I love Jamie Pollard and his measured approach to our needs. This may have been posted previously but I didn't find it:

    Y! SPORTS


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    I agree Jamie is way too smart to fall into that trap. Jamie will get the South End Zone project completed in due time.

    We aren't spending a half billion on anything. It's going to cost $50-60 million for the SEZ.

    That being said, yes, good on JP for everything he has done here.

    Faulty financing plan/empty suites aside, that wasn't just an "SEZ!" type of upgrade, it was a major seismic retrofit. A fault line passes directly underneath that stadium.

    But yes, JP > insert another school's AD


    Edit: No pun intended

    There are benefits to having a CPA as an AD.

    That could have a movie type scenario happen if that stadium was full.

    To fail to at least mention that in the article is pretty terrible reporting.

    The state as a whole is in good shape though, so should be able to help them out.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    The Discovery or History channel will find some way to make a ridiculous "reality" show about it.

    I assume most were in business or marketing. Bruce VanDeVelde's was in eating acorns.

    I certainly expect more out of a Yahoo! writer who goes by the pen name "Dr. Saturday".

    I wonder if Cal sought out any kind of earthquake readiness grant money to finance the stadium upgrades.
