  • University of Colorado regents OK $140 million in athletic upgrades

    The board voted 9-0 to support the plan.

    Among the improvements will be an expansion of the football locker room from 4,500 square feet to more than 16,000, and the construction of a 21,000-square-foot sports performance center that would be run in conjunction with the Anschutz Medical Center.

    Great! The Broncos should hold Training Camp there upon completion of this project.

      I would love to see the Broncos go back to training camp on campus, but it will never happen with their new Dove Valley expansion.

      I always thought it would be cool if one week of training camp could be held on a school campus somewhere else in the state and rotate every year. CU, CSU, UNC, Mesa State, Fr. Lewis, Air Force.

      Again, not going to happen, but it would be fun. A great way for the organization to reach other communities with some impact and give the Broncos players a change of pace in day to day life during TC.

          Been long overdue. Hopefully it will help get them back to being someone in college football.

              I think the facilities have been a HUGE hurdle for them in terms of recruiting. esp when they are vying for guys in the same region as Team Nike.

                definitely more important than investing 140 million in academics...

                    this upgrade to facilities does not preclude the university from investing in academia and the potential ROI from this $140mm athletic investment could be a boon for the university in terms of future academic investments.

                      They either need to invest in the athletic program or not have an athletic program. You can't pussyfoot around and be satisfied by being embarrassment on the football field. If they won't compete, they can get the **** out and be a purely academic institution, free from all the hassles of athletics.

                        Academics at CU is just fine, and based on their academic results, your concerns really are just a reflection of you. As in you are probably projecting your own personal experience.

                        CU has long neglected athletics, which are a great tool for marketing your college as a whole. It is about time.

                          So your saying that the school only puts money into sports? cause obviously you have never been up there.

                            You are of course aware that it has been shown in multiple studies that enrollment goes up at schools with successful athletic programs and that revenue from that helps improve many things at the school.
                            In other words, happy wife, happy life.

                              I have a buddy that owns a moving company he needed help one day to move some movie projectors into the school like 9 of them. that's just from my one trip up there. plus they were doing a lot of construction. Its a really nice school bout time they invested in there sports programs.. Doesn't this help more then just the football team?
