Anyone in district 1 or 2 want to run?
F the kids, let’s cure cancer!!
I think their vision leads directly toward their goal; no athletic department at all.
No dummy, it's the bees. Save the bees.
We also need to get Kroll primaried out.
Problem for both is that they are in very partisan districts. Major problem for CU that our BoR is publicly elected based on districts rather than all of them being elected At-Large in statewide votes. We've got a purple state, but in certain districts you could get a ham sandwich elected if it had (D) or (R) after its name. So it's impossible to defeat them if we have an idot who makes it to the election ballot.
Ideally I'd want to have a single appointee or at-large elected politician representing the state's/ public's interest in the governance of CU -- which the public funds a very small part of and gets a huge ROI on with direct employment, tuition advantages, community services & cultural events, and business startups. But if we can't get that then I'd at least want the entire BoR elected through at-large elections.
Districts 2 (Boulder/Shoemaker) and 7 (Lakewood-Arvada etc / Irene Griego) are your targets for 2021. And of course hold John Carson from Highlands Ranch in District 6. Lose the Carson support and things look really bleak.
The problem with changing how the state elects BOR is that it requires a Constitutional Amendment. Getting the legislature, and the general populace to agree to appointing regents is long shot. This next election cycle will be very important for the future of CU Athletics in general and football in particular.
The legislature could dilute the BoR by adding appointed seats - that doesn't require an amendment. It would be very messy and there is zero political will to do it, but it is one option.
We have Kroll until 2023 unfortunately so haven’t focused on him. I think you’ll see him move on to run for a higher elected office. Regent seems like a stepping stone for him, at least in his eyes.
You see, here is where an Electoral College system would pay some big dividends...
Isn't that how you cure aids?
At least according to the book of mormon (Matt & Trey version)
This is exactly my read as well. Unfortunately for shoemaker, CU has nowhere near the academic reputation of university of chicago (and I say that as one of the biggest CU sunshine pumpers around). UofC is in a much different league than CU and they do not need athletics as a marketing mechanism. CU does.
Kroll really has shown a fundamental misunderstanding of how many things work within the University. The fact he was vice chair is nothing short of absolutely embarrassing.
Kroll has shown a fundamental misunderstanding of how many things work. That's it. That's the more accurate statement.
Does he? Or is he a destructive demagogue who doesn't care if he breaks things on his way up the political ladder?
Oh Jesus...we lose RG and we’re ****ed again. He’s the best thing that could have happened to athletic fundraising. Look at the recent donation to fund athletic scholarships and the athletic department, that never happens without RG. Our BOR is ****ing cringeworthy.
That's possible, but he hasn't really said anything that demonstrates he does understand things, at least pertaining to general economics or as Denver sc said, how things operate within the University.
I say we take him out and beat his ass.
He is a moron and it is utterly dumbfounding to me that he is allowed to help run a multi-billion dollar organization. I wouldn't hire this guy to run a Wal-Mart.
Kroll is an embarrassment to the State
Uh, Wal-Mart is a multi-billion dollar operation....
I think finding the cure requires only another $800,000.
And pretty well run.
Here’s another Kroll item from yesterday. Fair question. It’s a really stupid question but it’s fair to ask I guess
padlocks in socks....
Can we recall a CU regent like we can a governor? One thing with Carson-amendments x and y (taking redistricting away from politicians) that got passed in 2018 would probably help him more than anything-the Columbine Valley/South Jefferson County area (pretty Republican area of Denver metro) should probably wind up back in District 6 after the 2020 census.
He got krolled.
I'd love to be in a Q&A with Kroll. I don't like that peckerwood. No telling what I'd say, I'd think of something, though.
Yeah I’m sure none of these kids are aware of the risks. This **** bag will look for any reason he can to downplay athletics to fit his agenda.
No ****, I'm sure his sorry ass really gives a damn about what the young men think about the risks. The players know what they are getting into, hard not to these days. Maybe punkass Kroll should let people make their own decision instead of trying to live their lives for them. Know your role Country Club.
