Good grief - going to have to listen in on Buff Chips AGAIN tonight. Between this and BBall game Ms. Rack will not be a happy camper tonight.

Thread is now locked, but will be continually updated by mods and such. So now it is officially official. If we miss something, please PM us.
Anyways, if anyone wants to pass the time, keep us updated on any new flight plans filed for our local municipal airport!
Also, lots of places have rumored that Butch Jones is on UT's list, but not in their top 2 or 3 choices. Which is why this could effect his status if he hasn't signed on the dotted line by tomorrow morning:
Eye on College FBall @EyeOnCFB
FYI, report from L'ville RT @ericcrawford: Strong didn't tell his players decision. Says he will tell them, then the media, in the morning.
as soon as I give up, of course, CU leaks he is hired.
we will keep updating this thread with links on his hiring as well as rumors as to his potential staff. However, we now need to rename it to the "assistant coach" rumors compendium!@denverpost: ALERT: Butch Jones accepts offer to be Colorado's football coach, @denverpost learns dpo.st/VDQcIx #CUBuffs
Mark Johnson @MJohnson850KOA
I'm told the Butch Jones rumor is NOT true right now. @850KOA @cubuffs @RunRalphieRunthis is either a very calculated leak or a huge ****up.Reed Marks @reedmarks
Just spoke to source, IT IS NOT OFFICIAL YET! But expect it to be soon. @Allbuffs @MileHighSports
Reed Marks @reedmarksI spoke with the only person who could know, and it is not done yet officially yet! @Allbuffs @MileHighSports @gtheproducer
FootballScoop Staff @footballscoop
Have learned it's not official yet w Butch Jones & Colorado; but every indication that it will be. Colorado stepped up FootballScoop.com/the-scoop
Source told us that Elway, John Fox and Peyton Manning all reached out to Butch in support. Strong move by ColoradoCU Sports Mag @CUSportsMag
.. RT @Allbuffs: RT @SIPeteThamel: Just reached out to Butch Jones,who said any report of him taking the Colorado job is "absolutely false."

G The Producer @gtheproducer

going with this for now - kind of a good summary.@adamcm777: I am told that while Butch Jones will likely be the #CUBuffs' next head football coach, it is not official yet.
On the radio, Reed Marks is reporting Butch has met only with the senior captains on the team.
@CUBoulder: No deal w/a new football HC has been reached. We are still in active hiring process. We have nothing to confirm at this time.

RT @SIPeteThamel: I've been told to expect a decision on Butch Jones and Colorado sometime tomorrow. Could go either way
Zach Wells @WellsZach
Just caught up with Butch Jones. "Torn" between Colorado and the #Bearcats. Decision in next 24 hours. Disappointed in reports.
"Right now Alec Burks is using and abusing this Texas defense"
rumors arise again! Is there a team meeting for Cincy today? A press conference? Who knows.
And, just cause I love this quote about last night's game against CSU:
as a side note, according to Adam at rivals, Butch spent significant time talking to a certain ex-CU head coach yesterday."We got pushed around by a bunch of young guys who talked in the paper and they backed it up. And I'm not used to that" CSU HC
I think I'm gonna be posting these all day
h/t ralphie report

Random Respected Internet Poster CJB at Rivals has this as the story of yesterday, and it includes some new info:
http://colorado.rivals.com/showmsg.a...id=894&style=2I heard that Butch Jones met with his wife, three kids and four senior's of the team early yesterday morning before he left for Charlotte to conduct the Belk Bowl press conference.
He did not tell the seniors he was leaving, but wanted to discuss the situation with them and how it would affect the team. The players then left and after he informed his family he was taking the Colorado job. CU did not know at the time.
He then told CU yesterday afternoon that he was accepting the offer and would be the next HC at CU. Someone then leaked the story to the DP who published the lead.
Jones was extremely disappointed with the leaking. He wanted to be the one to tell the players before they heard it anywhere else. This was very important to him.
So if Jones does not announce today he is accepting the CU job, he changed his mind last night after the leak.

@footballscoop: Sources: We will hear shortly Colorado & Butch Jones is now off the table. Both sides wishing each other the besthttp://www.footballscoop.com/the-scoopColorado: Sources tell us that Butch Jones to Colorado will not happen. After sleeping on the deal, both sides agreed to move on. As we cautioned last night, a deal isn't done until the ink is dry.

Starting to look like we got played. It happens. On to the next one!
And for more in that vein...@buffscoop: Buff Scoop can confirm the reason Jones said 'no' to Colorado is because Tennessee has seriously entered the mix for him.
@Reedmarks also says that Butch has not yet told Cincy he is staying... expects more flirting with Tennessee.

The CU AD has gone silent - only activity has been from David Plati going off on Joel Klatt on twitter. No word from anyone on anything right now. It would make sense for the next hiring attempt to be silent until it is done. However, we will keep updating this as information comes out.
