Don’t worry, UC Berkeley is alive and well

Those of you who noticed that UC Berkeley’s football team is nationally ranked, don’t worry; the craziness is alive and well:

Superior Court Judge Richard Keller granted UC Berkeley a preliminary injunction against the protesters, who have been perched in an oak grove near Memorial Stadium since December hoping to stop the university’s plan to build a sports facility there.

The judge barred the protesters from “lodging in, scaling, climbing or hanging or sitting or standing” in tree-houses, hammocks or platforms in the grove, according to the order.

University officials asked for the injunction because of what they described as rapidly increasing safety and sanitation problems at the grove. UC police have issued almost 200 citations for trespassing, assault and other infractions, and some officers have complained of being hit with feces and urine from the tree houses. Several of the tree houses also have propane tanks for cooking.

    UC Berkely must always live down its disgrace in steroid-based football and alumni freakiness.

    In 1982 Cal defeated Stanford with Mariet Timothy Ford scoring the winning TD with time expired and the Stanford band on the field.

    Mariet became a hero, that play became ‘The Play’ for college football highlight reels.

    The reality was that all these kids were on drugs. Mariet went on to play pro football in the CFL for seven years, then murdered his pregnant wife and son, Mariet Jr. in Elk Grove California.

    Cal alumni are such doping apologist and hypocrites. they lust for the Play, yet never mention Mariet Ford by name. Mareit was a marketing tool, a steroid doper machine to promote UC TV revenue and cash flows.

    Just like this season. No dope, no hope.
