    Good luck to him. I hope we can get someone as involved in athletics as him. He came into the student section to shake hands/sing the fight song. Either he was embarrassed or he didn't know all the words

    This is a big loss for CU. He was a big time supporter of the Athletic Dept. I hope we can get another one like him.

    He was a big supporter of the bands too. He will be sorely missed...

    Who becomes the next Chancellor will make a huge difference at CU. Someone who realizes the value of intercollegiate athletics and supports the athletic department makes it 100 times easier to field competitive teams and hire competitive staff. The AD doesn't have the time or the resources to fight a hostile administration.

    Gordon Gee :smile:

    Judith Albino :sad2:

    I know they weren't chancellors, but the same theory applies.

    I think Benson and the Regents understand the importance of the AD, and won't put somebody in place that would endanger that.

    What is the hierarchy of the university? We have a President and a Chancellor and a Board of Regents. Anyone?

    What exactly does a Chancellor do?

    The Chancellor is the head person on a specific campus, so the CU system has Chancellors in Boulder, Denver, Health Sciences, and Colorado Springs. They report to the President, who reports to the Regents.

    You know they'll hire someone who could give a rats @ss about athletics, but if he is a chemist... good chance.

    I was upset to read Bud's letter to the University.

    Well, the Chancellor's first priority should always be academics. If it's not, then that's worse than not caring much for athletics, in my opinion. CU is an educational institution first.

    Is this the letter you are refering to? If so, I don't see anything wrong with it myself, so I'm curious to what I'm missing that you guys don't like.

    No public candidates yet - I'm sure it'll be a few weeks until we hear anything, if that. Usually, candidates aren't made public until there are finalists named.

    It sucks, but these kinds of deals are like coaches. When you have a really good assistant, he's not going to stick around forever. A great provost or chancellor will be on the radar for the next campus president job.
