    Senter had been with CU since 2006, coming from SDSU to head the Foundation. It was in the last year with the changes to the Foundation that he was moved over to Associate AD. Prior to all that, he had been AD at Idaho State.

    I wish Jim well and thank him for his time at CU. Definitely an experienced guy to lose.

    On a positive note, I also see this as a re-shaping of the CU athletic department to Rick George's vision with people he hires for the various positions. A little shake-up can be a good thing.

    Congrats to Jim! Great news for a great Buff!

    I met him when I was pres. of the Alumni Club in Austin, great guy. He was definitely one to listen to the fans.
    He called to ask me why the Austin Club set up the "rogue tailgate" separate from the university one and I laid it to him straight about how it was too expensive for most in our club, so we wanted to go with a more affordable option. As it turns out, I think we had more at our 'gater than the Alumni Association did at theirs. I also told him they needed to a better job embracing the local alumni clubs.

    End result - things changed. When we played UW in Seattle in 2011, the Alumni group there was much more involved, the pre-game activities were more family friendly and pocket book friendly AND there were two hotel options for people traveling up for the game. I was impressed at the turn around.

    Might have to travel to Citadel for a game sometime.
