I respectfully disagree. It had more to do with the contrived witch hunt,..


...the effects of which have drug on for years. The contrived witch hunt was initiated by Mary Keenan Lacy, the Boulder DA at the time. Lacy suggested Lisa Simpson file a lawsuit which started the ball rolling. If you have the stomach for it, details are well laid out by Bruce Plasket in his book BUFFALOED, How Race, Gender and Media Bias Fueled a Season of Scandal (released in 2005). In the middle of the whole witch hunt, Betsy Hoffman made a HORRIFIC mistake when she fired Gary Barnett. Gary was an excellent coach who got screwed over. His biggest mistake was volunteering a couple of thoughts about Katy Hnida(sp) that he should probably have kept to himself.

Elitist mentality? A lot of us have that now and then. Regarding CSU, when I attended CU way back in the 60s, we used to simply refuse to acknowledge their existence. It absolutely drove the CSU people nuts. It was like the jealous little brother who could get no attention or repect. It continues to this day.

Elitist mentality? There are a number of schools that have higher admission standards than many others, but they still manage to compete on the athletic field. Some better than others. A few that come to mind...Notre Dame, Michigan, Stanford, USC, UCLA, Virginia, Duke, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, etc.
