Some Implicit Cannibalism

I got this in an email from the UC I attended.
Alumni Converge on State Capitol to Deliver Message
to Legislators About Importance of University of California

Alumni from all 10 University of California campuses participated in the 2011 “UC Day” at the state Capitol to deliver an important message: UC’s excellence, accessibility and affordability are a driving force in California’s economy, but are critically threatened by the proposed $500 million budget cut.
Let's see, the state is $26B in the hole and the UCs are being asked to pony up $500M. The UCs don't want to pay that much. Since the money is going to have to come from somewhere, where will that somewhere be? The email doesn't say.
