LOWERING EXPECTATIONS: In Denver, Terry Frei reports in the wake of Colorado State firing AD Jack Graham last week, CSU President Tony Frank yesterday "conceded it's unlikely the school will meet its goal" to raise $110M in seed money by October "for a proposed on-campus stadium." After two years of conditional fundraising, Frank "all but ruled out extending the October deadline, while adding that he is beginning to more seriously ponder scaling back the project to cut the cost and financing options that wouldn't violate his pledges to avoid using university general fund money and student fees." Frank said that he has considered "giving up and committing to improving the off-campus Hughes Stadium" at a cost of "at least" $30M (DENVER POST, 8/12).
