Listen to Gov. Brown Say He is President of UC at Nov. 27, 2012 Special Regents Meeting
Brown's comments are particularly interesting and occur roughly between minute 5:50 and 10:50 on the recording. He says that the state funding and tuition expectations of UC are "unacceptable." There is an allusion to Joseph advising prudence to the Pharoah. He talks about a need for more efficiency, modesty, and lower cost at UC. At one point the governor said he was president of the university - which must have surprised Mark Yudof.
Yudof indicated later that one should not make too much of the governor's disagreement with the salary proposal and that on most matters he and the governor see eye to eye. Their eyes may be close but they seem to be looking in different directions.

UPDATE: A couple of sources tell me that the governor is president of the regents (although not of the university).
