    A very even handed and factually accurate column. I also wonder why they give a ****, but it's good exposure.

    IT is a reasonable article I agree. Don't think it was a Chicago Tribute writer. Byline says Sports Network so they probably just picked up the story-may not have even made the print edition. Either way it's out there. There does seem to be cautious optimism from ESPN and other national sports media that HCMM can turn this thing around-though noone thinks anything impressive in the W/L will show up in 2013.

    A newspaper in Chicago has better articles about the buffs than the the DP.

    For those of you on twitter and who are comfortable with sharing this on FaceBook please do, so far AllBuffs is the only one who has, the more attention it gets the better for us.

    Nice find. The first paragraph is a bit of an exaggeration but there's a positive view on MM as well as the importance of recruiting.

    I'll post it on twitter even though I hardly have any followers :lol:

    Except they make it sound like CU fired Ricky even with twice as many wins as losses. But re: Barnett at least they didn't use the H-word.

    I like that MM can say he has done this type of rebuilding before (at SJSU) and CU has been rebuilt from the ashes before (Coach Mac). This is a better story that JE had to work with.

    If we can just pick up mostly mid-level Pac 12 recruits, the coaching will be what makes or breaks the transition to the next level. But we need both. This is not a situation where one or the other will see it through.

    Somewhat strange this showed up in the Chicago Tribune. Reasonably good article and summary of previous coaches. The last 7 years have been so bad I don't see how MacIntyre can't show some improvement. I more or less sit, watch and wait to see what happens.
