    Benson said he won't interfere with the job of athletic director Mike Bohn when evaluating the football program.

    He also said he wouldn't interfere. He didn't say others wouldn't if things got bad.

    Considering what this guy seems to know about athletics, I'll take it for what it's worth. Give Bohn the reigns and some cash...

    Bruce Benson supports all the big money christian conservative CU donors and state republican leaders who are buddies with Coach Mac.

    Been told by a few AD guys that Benson and DiStefeno want top level athletics but I'm having a hard time believing it

    The neutering of a once proud program continues.... With these bozos at helm, we'll be relegated to irrelevancy forever in the next two years.

    I believe that. But they want it in the way I want my wife to buy me a Maserati for my birthday but I won't be providing the resources for her to do it.
