California Governor Gavin Newsom is not happy with the way UCLA announced its decision to withdraw from the Pac-12 convention.
During a recent interview on The Issue Is, Newsom shared his thoughts on the Bruins' handling of the situation.
Newsom, President of the University of California Board of Regents,
He said that the state university system has been kept in complete darkness.
"I read about it," Newsom said with apparent dismay. "I'm the governor, no big deal.
But maybe a big deal is that I'm the president of UC Regents, and I read about it... it was done in solitude.
This was done without any oversight or support.
This was done without considering my knowledge."
"We were never consulted. Never asked for any opinion," he said.
"He didn't even have the decency to raise his head. Trust me when I say this.
We are not going to investigate this.
We are looking into it minutes after we read it."
The college football world took to Twitter to respond to Newsom's words.
"Lol..Newsom and his agenda.
Sorry Gav, you are not in charge of this.
As you can tell, his ego is being put to a heavy test in this interview."
"There's nothing your clown ass or UC agent can do about it.
He made a comeback in a better conference with an amount of 4-5 times the revenue.
This dude really thinks he's a god..." said another.
"There is nothing that he or the courts can do.
The deal is done. The Pac-12 ran like a minor league operation and as a result they would eventually cease to exist."
