    The University of Colorado announced today that it is proceeding with its $143 million athletics facilities expansion in and around Folsom Field despite not having raised one-third of the money as originally required by the Board of Regents.

    One would think that the local paper would be celebrating the facility project rather than expending its energies toward picking nits.

    I'm not sure what's worse, Ringo or the dumbass who wrote the headline. The BDC used to be worthwhile just for it's Buffs coverage. Now it's not even good for that. I get more, better, and timlier information here than I do from the BDC.

    I am not sure it makes a big difference, but it would be nice for everyone in allbuffs to read the comments and add a little "thumbs up/down" for the ones we support and ones that are typical asinine boulder bull****.

    It would at least give a perception of what is going on is a good thing even if a few dip****s with handlebars stuck up their ass don't think so.

    The usual Boulder crowd is out in force on Facebook making blatantly false accusations of where the funding is coming from, but then again that's exactly what Ringo wanted.

    It's amazing how out of touch some of those people are.

    Ringo can't carry NKR's bag. He sucks.

    The dogs bark, but the caravan rolls on...

    Who cares? We're getting shiny new facilities either way, folks.

    Thanks. Was expecting much worse, but was worth a shot.

    What's the plan if the funds aren't raised?

    Nm, thought he was talking about the initial 1/3rd of the funding

    They'll load up on more debt and then be forced to service it - if you look at where Cal has shifted their efforts to this will give you a good road map for the contingency plan if they have a rockier road than expected.

    Given the edit above - retracted.

    I edited it, I thought he was talking about the initial 1/3rd of the funding needed and not the total cost of the project.

    Apparently Cal spent a bunch of extra money on things they didn't need, but rather stuff that other schools had. From what I hear our tactic is much different and much more financially sound than Cal's. Cal's reminds me of CSU's method of funding and projections.

    Actually, he sucked balls as well. But relative to Ringo, Neil was ok.

    And by by the way, why the hell is Ringo showing up here and on Rivals as a poster? I vote ban the bitch.
