    Only at CU would your job be safe when you're 23 point underdogs to a 4-7 team at home. **** you Benson and DiStefeno. You're ****ing embarrassments to the University of Colorado name and every alumni.

    What is really sad is this is a larger spread than we had against Washington which is a better team than Utah. Of course Utah is really good defensively, so we will likely look about the same as Saturday on offense.

    To be fair. Good old Hank posts a blog posted in 2008. I was almost young then. Us sports fans only judge Benson on our football program. He gets very low grades for that. But his, you know, main job is on the academics side. Now, I have no clue how he is doing in that regard and will not opine as to his success. But my understanding is that he is doing well in leading CU academically. But, as I said, I have no clue. I know many of you do. How is Benson as an administrator, taking athletics out of the equation.

    You'll be glad to know that CU is decreasing in academic prestige with each passing year

    The reason for CU's decline in US News and World Report and similar rankings is that our admit. percentage is so high; this is largely exogenous, IMO.

    I could care less what his party affiliation is as long as he is dedicated to having a strong football program.

    Tends to happen when your OOS tuition is sky high and only rich kids can go to CU. The moniker "ski U" is fairly accurate.

    Baylor's freshman center is an alien.

    No it's mostly the state funding is non existent which brings it way down

    Reading that bio makes me really like the guy. If liberal egghead academics don't like the guy, then that's usually a VERY good indicator he's the kind of guy I would like. Too bad he's FUBAR with the football program.
