Bruce Benson has done a lot to create a positive legacy, but CU athletics is a glaring failure of leadership.
So is the conventional wisdom that this is Benson last academic year as president?
I was talking to a friend who used to be a professor at UT and when I mentioned Benson had to go she was stupefied. She said "He's only the guy raising all the money for CU!" I said true, but he's completely ignoring athletics which didn't seem to register. I think the vast majority of faculty and the general public really could care less about CU athletics. We are the vocal minority and I don't expect Benson will be going anyplace else.
DiStefano for prez? What if that happens
Careful what you wish for. If most of the Regents, for instance, do not consider the AD a high priority, we could get another Betsy Hoffman.
On the plus side, Betsy Hoffman's testimony in which she was defending football players calling Katie Hnida a "****" was one of the highlights of the year. Apparently it comes from Shakespeare, and was used as a term of endearment! And she would know, she was a scholar!
That's the conventional wisdom. 5-year term is up and he's going out with is 75th birthday in July.
But conventional wisdom is that conventional wisdom is only right about 50% of the time. :wink2:
So who the **** knows something?
When you've got YOUR name on a CU building, cuz you gave $20 mill to build it, then you can criticize Benson.
how about if you peed on a building?
I'm feeling more hopeful for the opinion of the regents - we had some nice responses to the letter writing campaign
Did you write your name? Because I think that would count...
