    Dear Buffs Fans,

    It is with great excitement that we announce that the University of Colorado will join the Pacific 12 Conference for competition beginning in the fall of 2011.

    This is a historic move for the University of Colorado, and it would not have been possible without the enthusiastic support of President Bruce Benson, Chancellor Phil DiStefano and the Board of Regents.

    Obviously, we do not take the financial considerations stemming from this decision lightly. This move will result in the Big 12 Conference withholding a total of $6.8 million dollars in conference revenue distributions from the University of Colorado this fiscal year. We will be working hard to fund this reduction in revenue, and an anticipated lower year one (2011) Pac-12 distribution, through the athletics enterprise.

    As you know, ticket revenues, donations, as well as sponsorship dollars drive our enterprise. It is the financial support of our fans and donors that makes this move possible, and we will need your support as much now as ever. I urge you to continue to support the University of Colorado, and encourage you to invite your peers to join as we Build Buff Nation. You can click here to learn more about the Buff Club.

    Faculty, staff, students and alumni alike will benefit from what our new conference has to offer, and we will be able to keep the momentum building with an earlier commencement date as a member of the Pac-12.

    We are excited to begin competition in our new conference and welcome the high level of competition the Pac -12 will offer.

    Thank you for your continued support.
    Go Buffs,

    Mike Bohn

    Closure. At last. Time to put the Big XII behind us, well, almost, and look ahead. Probably the last thing to do is flush the toilet.

    Hopefully the donations will increase now that it's official.

    Too bad he still has Dan the Man in place. If he really wanted donations he should have canned Hawkins ass along with this announcement.

    I disagree. I think this will boost donations a pretty good amount and then whenever Hawk is fired, it will be another exciting boost in donations. Both at the same time might not bring as much out. Imo.

    I would humbly suggest that everyone who has sent Mike or Phil an email lambasting their decision to keep Hawk this year, or otherwise complaining about the state of CU Football, send them a congratulatory e-pat on the back.

    They have done a nice job with this conference switch. I applaud them for that. However, why do we continue to have to put up with ridiculous coaching? I am pretty sure the big donors aren't sending ***t until Juicebox is canned. Get us a real coach and the support for the program will flourish.

    Even the freaking Huskers recognized when they made coaching mistakes and finally found a good one. Can we please do the same?

    no, no ...
    send an e-mail thanking them for the Pac 12 move but we need to continue outting the pressure on demanding a coaching change- CU ends up no having to give up nearly as much coin to the Big 12 so the funds should be in place for a change NOW-

    One step at a time, this is huge news and they want to generate as much $$ as possible. When the time is right they will deal with Hawkins and see another bump in contributions.

    I am with you just bought tickets, but another check is on the way as well. Reward the good, complain about the bad.

    For any of us that aren't members the Buff Club Membership starts at only $100, I'd like to humbly suggest those of us who can afford it join in support of the official news:
