    Just got this from a FB group I am a part of. I can't verify but wanted to pass it along so you all can make your voices heard:

    FYI - the program needs our help today - send a quick email and let everyone else know to do the same:
    Tomorrow afternoon the Board of Regents will meet to vote on the contract of new CU coach Mel Tucker. This should be a non-controversial vote, but I understand that there is opposition growing on the board to approve of the contract. Irresponsible grandstanding this may be, but nonetheless, I was asked to organize a late lobbying effort in order to forestall any embarrassment to the university.

    Therefore, I humbly request the following of you:

    1) Email the Regents asking for them to approve the contract.
    2) Contact your colleagues from organizations that may support the university (Belles, Advocates, Buffs4Life, etc.) and ask them to contact the regents asking them to approve the contract.
    3) Ask your colleagues to contact their friend to do the same.
    Here are the e-mail addresses of all nine members of the CU Board of Regents, and I would suggest CC'ing Bruce Benson (Bruce.Benson@cu.edu) if you decide to send e-mails:
    Glen.Gallegos@cu.edu
    Kyle.Hybl@cu.edu
    Jack.Kroll@cu.edu
    Irene.Griego@cu.edu
    John.Carson@cu.edu
    heidi.ganahl@cu.edu
    Steve.Ludwig@cu.edu
    Sue.Sharkey@cu.edu
    Linda.Shoemaker@cu.edu

    Yep. This has been going around all morning. Apparently we have a couple Regents who are thinking of doing some grandstanding on something that doesn't even impact the budgets for any of the CU campuses and will be paid from AD funds. ****ing joke.

    I can't possibly imagine everything was ironed out, approved by DiStefano/Benson/etc, introductions were officially made by the AD, a press conference was conducted, meet and greet, intro at Bball game, meeting with recruits, etc, only to have a cheaper contract than the one they approved for MM get denied.

    If this community really wants to do something concrete to support the Colorado of Colorado and its athletics, we need to organize good candidates to run against select regents.

    Let it happen. It’s their deal. Vote differently next time. No need for CU admin (Phil and RG) to make this a big deal.

    I wrote to Jack Kroll, Linda Shoemaker and Irene Greigo as I heard they were the three doing the grandstanding. Be polite, but make your point forcefully.

    Those are the 3 whose names keep coming up as potentially causing an issue.

    The votes are there and everything is going to pass, but it sends the wrong message if it doesn't pass unanimously. There's no reason to vote against it other than some philosophical point about thinking there's too much money in sports. Personally, I don't want people as Regents who are there to philosophize instead of being there to deal with the world as it is and make decisions based on reality which make CU the best university system in the country at everything it endeavors to do.

    Sent emails
    Looks like Regent Ludwig is out of the country
    This better pass without to much stupid attention.
    What are the rules for quorum at the meeting?

    I sent this email to Mr. Kroll, Mrs. Griego, and Mrs. Shoemaker individually. I also made sure to CC President Benson and Chancellor DiStefano.

    A template if you all care to use it:

    It is worth noting.

    It's also worth noting that the Nuggets pay Paul Milsap $30M a year to play basketball for them. There's a ton of money in sports because sports is just that popular. It generates a ton of interest from people. That interest drives donations to CU. It drives applications to CU. But only if CU has a football program that is winning football games. As one of 65 "power conference" universities in D1 football, having about the 40th highest head coach salary should only be generating objection from Regents out of concern that it might be too low.

    They don't have one.

    They have a philosophical objection to the money that is paid to people who work in athletics.

    I am really surprised they are doing this. They approved Mike McIntyre's contract (white guy), and are grandstanding on Mel Tucker (black guy). The optics of this are bad.

    Doesn't seem to be anything against MT. It's the academic vs athletic debate, where certain idots don't believe it's "right" that a football coach should be the highest paid public employee in the state. It's individuals who don't understand basic high school economics or how the world works.

    They're going to approve the contract, but if you remember, one of them abstained from voting on MM's contract and I'm sure Kroll and the other one begrudgingly voted Yes on MMs. Don't make it a race issue.

    I don't think it's a race issue. I'm just surprised they're doing it given sensitivities on race issues.
