    If he puts a priority on Athletics over the next few years, then I am behind him 100%. As others have stated, he has made the medical school his baby and it is now one of the best in the country. I'd like to see what he can do with the AD, especially now that he has his guy in there and some good coaches.

    Lots of good rhetoric being heard lately.

    CU sounds like it was a complete mess in all aspects and when Benson prioritized the things that needed to be done, athletics simply got left out in the cold for several years.

    I'm not sure who you are talking about here, but DicSteffano has nothing to do with the Medical School. He is limited to the Boulder Campus, and unfortunately Football falls under that umbrella.

    Pretty sure he was talking about Benson. DiStefano is going to move with the political winds, so if Benson is emphasizing the importance of winning championships in sports then Phil will be emphasizing that too.

    I'll believe it when I see upward movement and actual results. Their line of BS has worn thin with me. If they were truly behind the sports at CU, then they should have been saying it & doing it years ago.

    SIAP, kiszla is continuing to fling **** at the Buffs, but at the end of today's article he wrote something new that could be a sign he'll eat crow down the road:

    "Can Colorado win big in this brave, new world of college football? Yes. But the Buffs — and everyone who loves them — had better be prepared to spend big."

    I think he has seen a glimmer of potential in their future and is setting up the chance to say he was right until an anomaly occurred or some BS like that.

    Good eye fatty. I was thinking the quote was from Benson after reading the article.
