    This is the ****wad responsible for Talkins being retained.
    It's been mentioned at other places that him, not Di Stephano or Bohn, put his foot down and said no to buying out Talkins.

    I fear if CU goes through another ****ty season Benson will do the same thing.

    How can we get rid of this piece of crap ?

    Benson was hired because he has a lot of energy industry ties and can raise funds. for those who like to blame the "climate" for CU football on "the liberals at CU" ought to look into Benson's history...because he's far from liberal and has a lot of ties to the Project for New American Century and being qualified to be a university president is kind of stretch by traditional criteria, for that matter.

    Too much? You are probably right.

    Realistically you have to understand that college football is something that our little corner of the internet happens to care passionately about. However, this man has an entire university to consider. His perspective in running that university incorporates considerations and inputs to which few of us are privy. I understand the discontent surrounding this particular matter, but a little sensitivity regarding somebody who wrestles with difficult decisions daily might be in order.

    I'm not suggesting we can't make fun of the way he looks though. That's still okay.

    He was talking to me, dickwad.... :cool:

    I totally agree with this point. And here is the problem I have from that standpoint. With Benson and with DiStefano... Their job, particularly DiStefano's, is at least in part to establish standards for the University. They have now established that the standard for the University is that the highest paid employee can fail 2/3 of the time and still have their support, as long as he portrays the right "intangibles". These men are responsible for maintaining the tradition of excellence at the University of Colorado, but are sending exactly the opposite message on the highest profile stage the University has... :huh:

    What happens the next time they try to remove a faculty member for incompetence in their field? "Well, maybe half the information I taught was incorrect, but I've given the students a lot of great life advice, the students support me, and the 50% of the information I teach that is correct puts me above the standard set by your head football coach."

    Ward Churchill's attorney is probably working up yet another direction for his case as we speak... :lol:

    Thanks, ITB.

    I needed a photo to laminate and tape to the back of the toilet for my son's potty training. :thumbsup:

    I sent him an email responding to his comment that Squawk recruits kids that don't get in trouble. The email listed his recruits that have been in trouble with the law:


    • Kai Maiava
    • Nate Vaiomounga
    • Lynn Katoa
    • Jake Duren
    • Ethan Adkins
    • Michael Sipili
    • Chris Perri

    He also said he didn't like "scandals." But I pointed out that CU professors, Joanne Belnap and Scott Adler, fanned the flames of the scandal to promote themselves at the expense of the football team.

    And I said that if his goal is to ruin something that is a huge source of pride to alums and the state of Colorado, he is doing a good job.
