I agree this team doesn't look that in shape. Plays like it.
That is one long and deservingly negative writeup on CU football. Wow.
Another good excerpt:
Yeah we got to get this guy to write here. :lol:
pretty scathing, pretty sad that it's all true. thanks benson, disteff and bohn. you asswipes clearly know how to protect the reputation of the university.
wow. it takes a big pair of cajones to pile on this team. they are only the worst team in CU history so i admire the writer for having the journalistic bravery to point it out- that is some seriously impressive work there. again.
die in a fire, douchebag "journalist."
Meanwhile, over on sbnation they're saying this. I don't get their comments on funding and staffing because the funding is there they just need to decide to use it, and the staffing comment simply doesn't make any sense.
we should email this article to every administrator, professor and coach at the university...
I'm sure they have a filter in their email clients that routes anything with the word football into their trash folder.
youth, injuries, blah, blah, etc... Our guys can not even line up before the snap in correct position?? Have been coached out of fundamentals that have been learned since Pop Warner ball?? This whole staff has no clue
The idea that good coaches don't want to come to CU is absurd. If you pay market price, you will get what the market has to offer. CU plays in a big time conference. Think of the number of people in the coaching profession and consider that there are only 12 head coaching positions in the Pac 12, which covers a good 1/3 (at least) of the land area of the USA.
The list of people who would turn down a job that pays roughly $2 million is VERY small.
This is the key. So many people ignore the fact that football is a zero sum game. It's not like business, where you can have a market that's growing. Apple and Microsoft can each "win" and grow business and profits at the same time. That's not the case in football. The size of the market is always the same. It's always a zero sum.
What is CU doing better than the other 11 schools? Coaching, recruiting, funding, facilities, etc.?
The problem also looming in the minds of perspective coaches - CU= career suicide. Last (head) coach CU had that is still coaching? most of them are done
I don't buy this. If CU offers market-level compensation for a top-flight coach they will have no problem attracting one. Quality-of-life bonuses re: the flatirons and Boulder may not mean much to certain classes of 18 year olds but it certainly means something to a great deal of adults with families.
I did not say they would not get a coach... $ talks...It will be like a "retirement package"
This is far from true.
Rick Neuheisel went on to coach 2 other schools, and coached in the NFL. It isn't because of his time at CU that he isn't coaching anymore.
Gary Barnett is his own worst enemy. Scandal follows him. He could probably get back into coaching at a smaller school, if he wanted to.
Dan Hawkins will get another job.
Jon Embree will probably go back to being an NFL position coach when his CU career ends.
