    The year 2040 is as far away into the future as the 1990 national championship is in the past.

    That is the perspective that recruits would have.

    For those who followed CU in 1990, how little did you care about Eddie Crowder's 1965 team or even Bobby Anderson's heroics in the late 60s?

    What matters right now: 8 years since the last bowl game, 10 years since the last winning season, 4-32 in Pac-12 play since joining the conference.

    2015 has to be a reversal of what this program is now known as.

    Win a few PAC-12 games. Get to a bowl.

    DeStefano has been at CU since 1974. 41 years later he's still bullet proof.

    Benson is 77 years old..

    Football fortunes are cyclical. CU leaders are forever.

    Sorry Nik, firmly on the bandwagon of the Tommy Callahan 7-year plan.

    Herein lies the problem.

    I know that Dr. Phil has supposedly become a supporter or at least less of a hinderance to athletics in general and football in particular.

    At the same time I wonder how many truly successful football programs exist on a campus that has or has had a chancellor who is less of a supporter than CU?

    I don't think 1990 plays into much anymore.

    Maybe that's why there's the push to make the 30 for 30. Draw some positive attention to the program.
