That's a sure sign a program is headed in the wrong direction when your state's best players go out of state.
"When the team is losing and you're kind of disappointed, it was so quiet," Spond said last week. "The stands were so quiet. It was a whole different feeling from the first game (hosting CSU) to the last."
But our fan base has nothing to do with it right. Big time players don't come to CU because we don't have big time fans.
It's all Hack's f-in fault. If he would've just won more games instead of talking so much SSHHHIIT!! We wouldnt be in this fine mess.
Gawd, what an asshat that POS wanna be is, huge mistake to hire him. But I guess that will be Bohnhead's undoing as well.
oh BTW, post #3000 mutha fuka!!!
Big time programs don't have fans tuck tail and run when things get tough. CU will always be a little fish in a big pond as long as our fan base to tuck tail and run when things get a little tough.
I could careless if you like the Coach, AD, or University Pres. Doesn't matter. CU fans are the only fans I know of that want to think our program can run with the big boys, yet we stay home on Sat. with our tails tucked between our legs when things get a little tough.
Again 15K kNU fans in Folsom for "rival game". Doesn't happen at big time programs.
Fans being committed and recruits being committed have the same root cause = either a successful program, or one on the path to success.
Neither of which is evident right now.
Laying blame on the symptoms fails to recognize the illness.
In general, though, I agree that support for the program should be just that, support for the program, not the coach.
the only way to fix all this is on the field. no marketing, no big talk about 10 ten wins, just wins. sadly, no real reason to believe that will happen....minus the minor hope that the maturation of our depth chart starts to pay big dividends and overcomes what has been thus far sub-par "coaching-up".
I also talked to some husker fans around my seats. A few of them purchased season tickets just to be sure they could get in the husker game and not pay a premium price.
I also disagree that big time programs don't go through these things. Losing will do this to almost any program. Texas in the 90's USC in the 80's and 90's. Lots of teams go through this. Winning will change things.
Blaming the fans is stupid.
I think you can also attribute some of this to the transplant nature of Colorado's population now-a-days. Sure these guys attend Colorado schools for HS and what not, but their parents are alma maters of other universities and I'm sure the kids are fans of those places before CU.
Examples - Kasey Studdard, Kyle Shanahan, LaMarr Houston, Cory Ross, Austin Hinder has family ties to Cal, and although we did eventually land Kasa didn't he have family ties to Florida? I also think there was a kid a few years back in the Barnett era that we had no chance at b/c his parents were Notre Dame alums.
I'm definitely not saying this is a major cause, but it has to play into the kids thinking the way they do somewhat.
If my kids somehow get blessed with a bajillion times more athletic ability than I ever possessed (I did have some so it's not like we're multiplying by zero here ) I can guarantee that CU would get a first and dominant look over any other university.
They practically committed when I had them there for the CU-Nub game this year!
(Although they did say they hoped a certain someone wouldn't be the coach...)
"So tell me Ryan, how did you know he would turn to starboard?" - CDR Bart Mancuso, CO USS Dallas
"I didn't. I had a 50-50 chance and I needed a break." - Jack Ryan
I absolutely, positively guarantee you that had CU been 9-2 going into that game that there would not have been half that number of fusker fans in attendance.
