I was a Chemical Engineer. Hildebrand wrote one of my text books. I wiil go to my grave having witnessed Cal winning the NCAA BB championship. That is something most of you can only dream about while pissing and moaning. We had no blogs then. We had no computers then. Not even a calculator. We had a student body which packed the gym for every single game. Standing room only. Now we have twice as many students and probably half as many attending games. Most don't give a s**t about Cal basketball. The faculty and administration don't give a s**t either, BTW I paid about $50 a semester for incidental fees. Gasoline was about 20 cents per gallon. I remember gettting pissed when it went to 25 cents.


OT...caltag...

Not so fast, "old" guy. I witnessed Newell '59 and Elliott and I even witnessed part of Pappy and post-Marv. I paid 35 cents for premium to run my Chevy. We didn't have computer access until 1969-70 (main frame, not laptops), and then you had to submit a batch of keypunched hollerith cards and wait until dawn and maybe run it again...and we loved it.

Btw--You dudes didn't even want chicks in the rooting section. That didn't happen until 1964. What a bunch of dumb-aszes. So here you are 60 years later complaining that they don't want to be in the rooting section anymore. You wanna' talk about white shirts?

Blogging is voluntary...so what...here you are! Would you prefer to blog in FORTRAN?

The fees are what they are. My most beautiful bride paid $45 per semester. I paid $133 per semester/quarter in grad school.

So do we need to talk about rent?

coach wyking has offered top 35 player in the 2019 class 6'8" 190 lbs isaiah mobley of rancho christian high school & the compton magic...yeah isaiah & his 2020 sharpshooting bro evan are (almost) all grown up




mobley is one of the most skilled bigs in the 2019 class & plays with a kinda ivan rabb style as he continues to work on adding strength & a 3 point game to his arsenal

isaiah is not a dumb azz, he got a 4.0 gpa

getting the mobley family on campus for an unofficial visit to berkeley this summer is a priority for the staff

Let's all get together and keep kids off our lawn.
My semester fee was $62.50. My freshman year was the first with girls (not called women then) in the rooting section.
However, I don't know what you are saying about computers. One of my roommates majored in CS in 1964, and I did research using the mainframe in 1966.

I don't you are talking about either? We used slide rules There were no calculators. The computer was being developeed and it was the size of a small room. You would need a truck to carry it around,

...more OT: "lawncare"...

1964 "Women" (*edi: "chicks/girls") moved into the "Mens" rooting section. Vastly improved, and most welcomed it.

Rethinking...my access to computer in Evans was 1967. The concept was "mainframe"...code in FORTRAN. Three basement floors hideous Evans "monster". Too big for a truck. Technology surpassed the building during construction. (UNIVAC (1950's) at Standard Oil, Richmond, took up a five story building.) Slide rules in HS and college chem, physics, civil engineering (land surveying, etc). Finished with HP/TI calculators...so what! Hand held calculators created a crisis in pre-college math.

Enough already.

dear bob, joe & ursa,

how are you?

i am fine

thank you for all your fascinating stories re: your lives in the prehistoric dinosaur era but please stop now, we are looking forward (and appreciating the moment) not backwards, got it?

monster recruits are not interested in how brontosauruses used to graze by sather gate back in the day when california was 98.6% white, ok?

yours truly,

shocky

Rent on Durant Ave. between Oxford and Telegraph for a newish one bdroom for my new bride and me was $130 in 1964. An Athletic Card for all sports was $10. Gremlins (iced orange juice in a cup) with your own mix of choice was the drink of choice in the Men's Rooting Section. During card stunts at halftime, it was necessary to hang on to at least one card to protect yourself when the cards went flying after the stunts were over. Great memories!

Hey Bill, Does that mean it is time for talking about the 20% discount I received to attend the summer quarter in 1969? Saving $20 from what would have been a $100 fee was a big deal then....

what up, rob?...one of my highlights of this basketball season was sitting by you at haas, your telling me you would return to this board & cal fandom if the administration hired a competent football head coach that valued d, you prophetically mentioned justin wilcox as someone that you thought could get the job done

and yeah, if you retroactively get a 20% discount from back in the day with present day value compounding of interest, you gotta share your mint with me...got a lotta respect for you & your many contributions (many way below the radar) to cal athletics

looking forward to seeing your sorry broken down azz at memorial this fall even if you couldn't close on your guy from antioch, too bad you didn't tell moms alabama is academically a **** skool for dumb azzs (all running backs are one injury away from football being done with them forever, then what?)

We don't get up as early as Shocky. The fact that Brown is an outstanding player and student, and is Cal's no 1 target is not exactly news, Wake me uo when he committs.
