    Regarding Benson's comment that "he has felt no pressure regarding facilities": ​

    Good question, Montana.

    So how do we get him fired? I am under the impression that it is up to the regents which we vote in right? Who do we vote for this election. Honestly, I care nothing about the academics at this point, all I am concerned about is a winning football team. The academics and mostly everything else will take care of themselves no matter who we vote in.

    Look, in all fairness, BB doesn't draw a salary at CU. He was given the gig for being the good Republican soldier all these years, and after he got beat in his run for Governor in 1994. He is an astute businessman, but clearly doesn't get the role of athletics in major University success.

    Sent yet another email. Awaiting canned response and another announcement saying facility improvements are being studied.

    it's not entirely clear to me who exactly wanted Benson as Prez. i know the faculty didn't. he was a longtime creature of the energy business and that's who is driving CU's research agenda these days....which is not the worst thing...either that or biotech is pretty much where the future is economically.

    Ringo's article title was pretty funny. Benson is choosing to "Stay the course" of doing almost nothing. so, he's got that fortitude of entropy thing working.

    I am in no way condoning a RoboCall/junk mail/daily blast email/repeating tweet/fax campaign. Let me be clear, if someone were to make it their life goal to let Bruce Benson know the importance of new football facilities on a daily, if not hourly basis, via phone, email, twitter, snail mail, CB, smoke signals, or fax, I would not publicly endorse it.

    Done.

    What I don't understand in the Camera article is that BB said he goes to all of the games but hasn't heard much talk from anyone regarding facility upgrades, but he's heard the calls for Embrees head? Are you f**king kidding me!!! He must be part ostrich with his head buried in the sand or someone's ass.

    This University is so embarrassing at this point. I'm almost becoming ashamed to have gone there.

    You need to go higher than Benson. Contact your regent and the regents at large like I did.

    The Regents care even less, I'm afraid. They're all about getting the nice luxury boxes and parking spaces that come with being a regent. They really don't give a sh!t about how good the football team is, though.
