    Putting Cabral in charge would only tarnish his legacy.
    The way his LB group has played over the last 5-7 years and recruiting in this area may have already tarnished it some.

    Sorry to piss in the Cheerios but if your two words for me are "Jim Tressel" then my two words for you are "show-cause". After the Ohio State scandal that cost Tressel his job the NCAA slapped a five year show-cause penalty on him that follows him wherever he goes through the 2016 season. Any school that hires him between now and then has to appear before the NCAA every six months and give them a reason not to penalize your program (i.e.: their intention is to penalize you and you must give them a reason not to). Also if any violations occur under Tressel then CU will be treated as a repeat offender and the hammer will drop with recruiting restrictions, heavy scholarship reductions and postseason or TV bans. The show-cause penalty isn't a true blackball but no coach with one on him has ever been hired anywhere ever. He cannot and should not be hired by anyone.

    It's better than this. I'd take crippling sanctions with Tressel than just being crippled by incompetence.

    If all this is true then I agree - don't want that.

    This is part of your problem. You seem to think that just because CU is in the Pac 12 conference they should somehow be competitive in the Pac 12 conference.

    The crippling incompetence is done away with as soon as those responsible for it are fired. Embree's deal was done before the ESPN/Fox contract and before the Pac 12 Network locked down guaranteed profitability. WSU was paying Paul Wulff about what Embree makes now and when they scored the TV cash they were able to give Leach $2.2 million. All four new Pac 12 coaches signed after the TV deal was done are in the $2 million per year range. If there's that kind of money to spend you can find something good who won't have the NCAA camping out in Boulder hunting for something to get pissed off about.

    People do you really think that the admin is going to let JE go with a big buy out, and dig deep into the pockets to pay for a real head coach......HELL NO!!!! CU football is done, it is sad to say and even worse to witness.....
    His buyout is half a mill. Nothing when we are talking PAC 12 money.

    Who in their right mind would want to come here? It's not a top job anymore. Hell it's at the low end of the Pac-12 now. If Embree gets fired it's going to be a small school coach or a small time assistant coach from somewhere. Why would Tressel come? Smart? Petrino? Those are all pipe dreams for what's one of the toughest jobs at what's in the running for the worst BCS school in the nation. Unless CU threw around big money and could guarantee future facility upgrades then no one of merit is coming to this seeping pile of dog crap.

    This is why message boards don't choose coaches. AD's and Administrations are bad by themselves, especially ours, but jesus, all these suggestions sound like the "best of" for people that barely follow college football.

    Sadly I am coming to terms with this. What a buzz kill.

    Tressel would bring to us - what? Great knowledge of state of Ohio high schools? The ability to cheat and easily be caught? USC's donors are singing like a choir now - would Tressel's reputation bring us a "We can do that too!" badge? And this would be - uh - good?!! Look at Tressel's track-record in CU's top recruiting area - Calif.

    It's zero.

    THIS is what you'd want done for CU Football?

    No big name will come here, and the idea to bring in disgraced coaches that were booted for cheating or lying to their administrations is laughable. Frankly I don't want to bring my kids to a game coached by a nationally rejected sleazeball anyway.

    Our only real hope is to find a sucessful low tier Urban-Meyer-at-Bowling-Green type of coach that wants to use use as his stairstep to the big time. Obviously that doesn't carry a high likelihood of success.

    Agree....we are in a death spiral....mistake after mistake after mistake by Bohn, etal. The theory that we could get back to a competitive team in a few years is laughable.

    I think we should get Nick Saban, with Urban Meyer as the OC and Rex Ryan as the DC. They might be worthy to be the coaches of CU... Where do these delusions of grandeur come from?
