    He is on the "firing seems a forgone conclusion" list, if you check the link.

    Man, I remember thinking I wanted Paul Johnson. Proves how little I know. Him losing to Kansas a few years ago was just a disaster.

    Worst record on the list and the least likely to be fired.

    At least 1, maybe 2, I'm hoping gets fired so we'd have a chance at hiring.

    Sorry, Benson won't let this happen. Until benson and his point man distefano are gone, cu football will suck and they won't care.

    I know we're all frustrated with JE, but I'm not sure that I'd be thrilled with bringing in Tedford at this point. Probably a bit better and way more experienced, but his teams seem to underperform of late which is exactly what we're trying to stop doing.

    He'd bring in a lot of talent. Tedford's a program architect who probably needs a change of scenery at this point.

    Plus it beats bringing in a guy who a) is a first-time HC and b) doesn't know the Pac-12 territory

    Tedford would have us making bowl games. That's a Buff fans dream at this point. Not my first choice, but would take him for sure. He'd be rejuvenated with a new job, yet also bring in lots of talent...along with knowing the Pac-12 extensively.

    I don't dispute that a couple of years ago, and even now he'd represent an upgrade. And yes, he's had a knack for bringing in talented players (with a big assist from Tosh of course). So he would be a "safe" hire, I'll give you that. However, I still have reservations based on what he's done with some of the talented teams he's had over the years. If we're making a move at this point, I'd like to see us swing for more than a currently mediocre retread. Just my preference I guess. The guy currently on our staff that we poached from Cal maybe has me a bit gun shy.

    He took over at Cal after they were about as ****** as we are now.

    Obviously a lot of love for Tedford here. Based on my posts above on the subject, I'm still not personally sold on the guy, but I don't want to rain on anybody's parade, so I'll let it go with that.

    I think your opinions are fair. I just think the chance we hire a Harbaugh type coach who takes us all the way back is unlikely. An interim guy like tedford to build us back to mediocre might be the way to go.

    I wasn't a fan the first time nik mentioned him either, but the more I have thought about it the more he seems like a good idea. I'd love to underachieve to the tune of 6-7 wins a year at this point. Plus he'd leave the next guy loaded with talent and ready to move into the 8-10 win range.

    maybe we can work a sign and trade with Cal.

    We take tedford for three years so they dont have to buy him out. They take embo & staff and can fire/buy them out way cheaper than Tedford.

    I like this. Hell, they could keep EB as RB coach and they'd probably be happy with it. It's not unlike a baseball trade where one team wants to unload a big contract and the other team just has to give them a minor piece or two.

    Plus Boulder is the Berkeley of the Rockies right? I think he would be an ideal fit.

    Until I see a hell of a lot more smoke coming out of the admin, I refuse to believe the staff is getting fired this year and think this is a moot discussion. if I had to guess I'd say Brown and Marshall are gone, but that will be about it.
