Neil, once again, hits the nail on the head with this article. Yes, Baylor lobbyist Buddy Jones probably did more to embarrass the University of Baylor then help it but it would absolutely be nice to see a statement of support from the state of Colorado about the University of Colorado. Their is certainly ways to offer support without embarrassing the University. On a more serious note, I will give Buddy credit for one thing. He`s trying to rally the troops. His heart is in the right place, if not his head. Honestly, I`d like to see a little public support in Colorado. I know our state legislators have plenty to worry about these days. They need to direct their attention to stuff that actually matters. Ditto for Gov. Bill Ritter. But thing is, CU does matter. I`d like to see a few of the powers-that-be in Colorado stand up and say if the Pac-10 is going to invite six Big 12 teams, CU ought to be one of them. Just once, I`d like to see someone stand up and say CU is important. I`d like them to acknowledge that the state`s flagship university is important to the well-being of the entire state, and membership in a prestigious conference is a nice piece of that puzzle. That would be nice -- and it might be the only place Buddy got something right.
