    Pros:

    1. His name is Butch, built in familiarity
    2. He's won at Miami and UNC
    3. No training wheels necessary
    4. No show cause penalty

    Cons:

    1. He ran a shady program at UNC
    2. He's older than most candidates at 61
    3. His name is Butch, built in familiarity

    Thoughts?

    The first fact under Cons is debatable. I am thinking it was mostly John Blake and Davis took the fall for everything that happened under his watch.

    He's probably a no go since the cheating involved some academics.

    I'm for it only because it allows us to keep the #ButchPlease hashtag on Twitter.

    His personal nanny committed academic fraud for football players.

    Stop the madness, people.

    He's Petrino-lite. Doubt we consider him, but the line for experienced, available, winning coaches isn't very long.

    His program was insanely dirty in the academic department. On one hand, I don't think he could game the CU system in the same way (do we offer any real, honest, for actual undergraduate credit towards a real degree, courses 100% online?), but on the other, there's no way the AD could sell this to the academic side of the university. I mean, the cheating was brazen under him. Either he is genuinely ignorant about what academic integrity actually means and was deliberately ignoring what was going on, or he really thinks football players shouldn't have to do anything beyond the playing field in order to "earn" their degrees.

    Why does he have a nanny in the first place, he's a grown man?

    My wife is getting her Masters in Nursing from CUHS and its 100% online. I don't know about undergrad but I bet there are some. Could it be any worse than math mods? That was the biggest travesty of education at CU in my experience.

    My cousin is a tenured pHD prof of nursing at The U and when I raised my objections concerns about this new way of teaching she said this IS the future....

    pretty scary if you ask me.

    Butch is done. By the time the crap at UNC becoems old news he will be too old to be considered for any high profile jobs.
