In fairness, Bohn did build the basketball practice facility

but I think that was only because Bzdelic had a $500,000 buyout provision if he left CU early AND construction for a practice facility had been started by a certain date.

Somehow Bohn convinced the admin putting the screws to Buz and Wake Forrest was a good thing and they started construction on the $10.8M soon after Buz left.

"When Bohn and former CU chancellor Bud Peterson met with Bzdelik to try and lure him away from Air Force, he looked them in the eye and told them the Buffs had the worst basketball facilities in the Big 12. To their credit, they hired Bzdelik anyway โ€” knowing he would complain about every little disadvantage until CU made necessary upgrades to keep up with conference rivals โ€” and provided him with new coaches offices, a new locker room, a new weight room and floor in the Coors Events Center, and the promise of a new practice facility. "

Of course, the facility never got built until after Buz had tendered his resignation.
