Colorado Buffaloes athletic director Mike Bohn help a media roundtable this afternoon at Blake Street Tavern in Denver. While no formal facilities announcements were made, things seem to be moving forward with some of the upgrades this entire athletic department so desperately need.

Here are a few quick tidbits:

Colorado_medium The biggest news of the day was Bohn finally discussing the university's plans for the largest athletics facilities upgrade in history in and around Folsom Field. He said the project will include a permanent indoor practice facility. The facility would be mainly football, but all 16 sports would certainly have some sort of access. If all goes according to plan funding-wise (not necessarily a sure thing) that an announcement should come sometime in September.

Colorado_medium The new video boards will go up in early June. Can't wait to see these. Going to make a big difference. Again, the current boards only use 40% of the available space for video while the new boards will use 100% (although that does not mean that some of it won't be video ads, ask Texas about that...).

Colorado_medium More expansion going into the Coors Event Center, including the weight room and strength and conditioning as well as team meeting space.

Colorado_medium Future sports have been discussed, but nothing is formally planned. A major gift or donation could move the needle and push up that any timeline.

Colorado_medium The men's basketball team led THE ENTIRE NATION in a 4-year increase in attendance, from 46,000 to 78,000. Once again, roll tad.

Colorado_medium Last year, the football program sold it's most season tickets in 8 years.

After a somewhat shaky start, Mike Bohn has really gotten rolling of late. If he can pull this off at, or near the full vision that the university has in mind, it will be another major coup for the AD.
