Getting more money ranks not only as a top priority for Colorado but an urgent priority. The Buffs rank last in donors and money raised among Pac-12 schools, Bohn said. The new conference will feature wealthy programs like USC and Oregon, which will challenge CU the same way Texas and Nebraska would have in the Big 12.
The financial situation, on every level, figures to dissuade some sitting head coaches and might scare off other strong candidates. But over and over Tuesday, Bohn pledged that Colorado could hang in this climate.
