Great write-up, but I have to ruin it.
*Embree went 3-10 not 3-13
*Daniel Munyer is not projected as a RB
Only 2 typos? I should get a medal.
Rep to you for improvement
Agree with the timeframe it takes. Basketball can be turned around with 2 kids in the program. Football takes many more. No quick fixes here as the talent level is too low. Someone might quick-fix UCLA because they have some decent athletes, but CU is similar to Fresno State in talent and much worst off at a couple problem spots such as DL, TE, CB and WR.
I don't think it will take until 2016 for us to be in position to be competing for a conference title, I'd say 2015 will be our year if everything goes to plan.
2013: 7-5 or 8-4
Seems pretty reasonable expectations to me. In 2013, we will return nearly everyone and will have a very easy schedule so 7-8 wins is my expectation and recruiting will take off. Now that's provided this staff works out, which I think it will.
If things go like that, it's a "Coach of the Decade" type rise. It's possible. I can even see it happening. But it's also one hell of a thing to call a reasonable expectation. That's almost exactly what Harbaugh did at Stanford and he was in line for any college or NFL job he wanted after achieving that.
Yeah that's a good point, maybe my 2013-2015 expectation is too high (actually it probably is, but I really like this staff and am drinking the kool aid still). One thing is for sure, USC will be our measuring stick and we are going to have to beat them with kids they didn't want.
Nik I think you sold the top of that class short, CUD/terror were definitely more than spot starters and and CUD should lead the team in sacks this year. Same on the OL kids they all lettered and contributed last year.
But Terror started due to the Perkins injury later in the 2010 season (since Orms was also hurt) while not getting that much PT in 2011 despite the flood of injuries to the secondary we had. He thought that he could have benefited from redshirting as a soph with the system change we had. It took him a long time to pick it up.
And Chidera didn't play as many snaps as projected last year (only had 18 tackles - same as Espy), but did have 5 1/2 sacks. He wasn't big or strong enough to defend the run very well.
Anyway, I expect a lot from both this year based on normal development and the reports I've been hearing on how things have clicked for both and how much muscle they've each packed on.
