Cal has spent $440 million improving fb facilities which lie right on top of a fault line.  And after these articles, athletics were forced major funding cuts.

Could see Stanford fielding a team here is a new 4500 seat arena generations before Cal:

That arena is 4 minuets away from San Jose State University and half an hour from Stanford. Sounds like Sharks Ice is going to use the 4,500 seat arena for SJSU to play in.

Got to be kidding.  SJSU may be large but it has almost nil support.  UND has nearly twice the endowment, even though SJSU is minutes from the richest companies in the world and almost triple the size of UND.  It's so amazing that their alumni don't give a crap about SJSU probably because they have to spend $1 million just to buy a shack to live in.

Stanford grads give generously and Stanford has money coming out of every crevice. Stanford grads if they just check their couch cushions would get together more than enough money to endow hockey and even helicopter the team to practices through the heavy traffic.   Even BART could suffice.  But they need other PAC12 teams first.
