    Henderson says that Bellotti doesn't seem real interested, but didn't say that he wasn't either.

    Also says that Leach is not on the list

    Maybe, but I hope he's right about Leach. Not interested in the pirate. Belloti on the other hand...

    Certainly sounds like Bohn is asking some top notch coaches. Not sure CU will ultimately be able to draw someone like Bellotti - but at least Bohn's inquiring.

    Bellotti really scares me for some reason. That means we should probably hire him right away cause my intuition sucks.

    Belotti's record is actually 137-80-2. Facts are hard for Henderson.

    Bellotti sure soft-played it when he was doing color of the CU-OU game. Then again, maybe that was on purpose.

    Getting Bellotti or Miles would be the big splash that Bohn wants going to the PAC-12.

    No offense to Minnesota, but Colorado is looking like the most attractive opening available so far this off season. I think this job is a lot more attractive then we are giving it credit for. Especially with the Pac 12 South move.

    He should have gone for two more often and that would have cut down those ties. For example, when you go up 6-0 is a good time to try for two.

    Oh, and Henderson is a tool. Nice fact checking on his part. Hack.

    I agree.

    We have way more recent history than they have. Minnesota is a basketball school.

    Henderson could just not know how to read a stat sheet. 55+116=171; Bellotti could be 116-55 during the timeframe in which Henderson is referencing.

    I like Bellotti. National news and instant credibility in Pac-12 country if we hired him.

    As pathetic as it is, but true nonetheless, hiring an Oregon guy would also have the added benefit of making one of the major Denver Post sportswriters more friendly to the CU program instead of writing hatchet pieces (especially when it benefits Oregon - see the Diante Jackson recruiting and Henderson's strangely-timed rehash of the scandal era he had never previously written about).

    P.S. Speaking of Diante, maybe he would transfer to CU if we hired Bellotti, assuming he gets his academics in order.

    I always thought Henderson was a NU fan. The struggle with the English language and inability to count higher than 10 kinda sealed it for me.

    Don't buy into stuff like that. He didn't know much about CU, with more research (as it appears he is gonna do), he might become more interested. CU has a better history than Oregon, Boulder is similar to Eugene, CU is joining a conference he knows. The only really big thing that Oregon has on us is $ and facilities.

    FWIW - I have a lot of friends and neighbors here who are Oregon State fans and a few of them have commented that it's not a coincidence that the Ducks are looking better now that Bellotti is gone.

    I think he would be a good pickup for CU although given that he coached at a school with a sugar daddy, I'm not sure how he'd adjust to CU.

    Nice Henderson, what was it, an entire week after you wrote about Bellotti not being interested in the job? Now he's suddenly unsure and wants to do more research.

    I'm very glad we aren't pursuing Leach. Bellotti I can live with, but he just doesn't excite me like he did when people first started mentioning him. We could certainly do a lot worse than Bellotti, but we could probably do better too.

    That may be true, but Oregon did pretty well for a while while Belloti was there. And all those kids there now are Belloti's kids. We'll see in 3 years if the ducks look the same as they do now and then I'll judge if the Ducks were better off without him.

    Oregon was a Dennis Dixon injury away from the MNC. Bellotti would be a... "home run.":smile2:
