Everything you have heard about me, namely that I am a devil from the University of California, is true. That sturdy Golden Bear, whose football games I disdained back in the day, watches me from the sky even now.
If you give me the faculty I want from this campus, I can recruit students from anywhere, including Columbia and Harvard, without shame. If you do not, then I cannot, and I will lose interest in your proposed program which is marked for failure anyway, at least if it remains in the larval form you have assigned it.
I will cultivate my garden which has more potential than your garden could dream of having, anyway.
