Lets be honest, lots of people at both Cal and UCLA don't care about football. We can throw Stanford in there as well. The students don't really show up, and they don't have a huge football fan base. There have been many Saturdays where good teams at both Cal and UCLA have played in front of half empty stadiums. Its no secret that these programs, especially Cal get little support from the rest of the university, and are quite actively despised by a lot of academic departments.

UCLA is more supportive, but its hard not to classify the environment around either Stanford or Cal as at times downright hostile. USC is the only California program that really cares about and supports football, and it shows in how good they usually are on the field.
