    This a great story and will be compelte once gym raises enough to be brought back too.
    They will do it!
    This story deserves national play and Cal alums and all donors who helped should be given recognition for a job well done.
    I think the future is bright for Cal athletics with so many powerful and passionate Cal people out there willing to step up.
    Keep it going Bears!

    Big question is where is the AD in all this? Where is UC leadership?
    What are they doing behind those big paychecks?
    Cal donors deserve production and results from the employees at Cal.

    gymnastics may be a bit of a stretch.

    On KCBS there was a report/interview about baseball reinstatement. It also mentioned gymnastics were half way to their goal ($4m?). It might take longer but they can do it.

    LOL Rollon-

    Cal does have some MLB players Nagy, Blum, Connor and Kent is recently retired. We probably have a prospect or two. Did we lose any players over the past few months?
