    University of Colorado Chancellor Phil DiStefano issued a challenge nearly two years ago to fans of the school's athletic department shortly after the members of the Pac-12 Conference chose to share revenue equally.

    "It would make sense for the school to first approach its most wealthy alumni for help, but CU has had more success raising money from people who didn't attend the school."

    Yeah - my main hope is that there is some sort of power-struggle going on with the donors, and the AD is leveraging this public sob story to try and get them to capitulate.

    It's fascinating Ringo opens with DiStephano framed as a pro athletic chancellor who is leading the boosters for two years now. It's also interesting Bohn is mentioned deep into the article, but isn't quoted.

    Hmmm.

    If our facilities aren't upgraded, it will be in the top ten disasters in the history of college football.

    I think that we deserve new facilities.
