    The CU At The Game blog did a nice job with bios, pros and cons for a number of the coaches mentioned for the CU job. It's a bit dated (written in late October), so some names we're hearing now aren't included. But all in all, it's pretty complete. If you want a quick primer on Bill McCartney, Jon Embree, Eric Bieniemy, Gus Malzahn, Jim McElwain, Mike Bellotti, Mike Leach, Al Golden, Troy Calhoun and Les Miles... then check it out:

    Reading the Pro-Logan responses is mind boggling. "With Dave Logan we would never have to worry about recruiting again!" LOLOLOL

    It's the same group that thinks any in-state 3* prospect who commits to any other program represents a major failure by CU.

    Interesting that Calhoun never actually "served" for the Air Force. Straight from graduation (and presumably commissioning) became a coach for DeBerry. Doesn't show what he did in the Air Force (pilot, missileer, comms, etc.)

    Not saying that's a strike, just wondering how he pulled that one off.

    He served as an Air Force haircut model. Same haircut I've seen on every Air Force officer O-4 and above. It goes nicely with dockers, a woven belt and a striped rugby shirt, by the way.

    Playing snooker at the O-Club they paid an exorbitant yearly fee to belong to.
    If not there, playing golf.

    Not snooker. What's that stupid game they love so much where you push the pool balls in the pocket while the other team blocks you? They love that ****.

    Dammit! Can't remember the name, but I know what you're talking about. I'm too far removed from my Mountain tour to remember what that game is. What a stupid game that was/is. Only the Farce.

    Crud. That's it. I played it in my first of two trips to an AF O-club.

    True story:

    It was my first day on Guam. My first day in my first fleet squadron. I landed after hours, all jet-lagged and grumpy. My sponsor decided not to pick me up, but one of the guys I knew from flight school came down and got me. He wanted to introduce me to the squadron XO, who apparently had this weird hard-on for the AF O-club (he spent the next year talking it up and trying to get squadron pilots to join. Exactly zero joined).

    So we arrived at the O-club, and my buddy said, "Hey XO, this is our newest pilot." XO said, "hey, great! Why don't I take you over and introduce you to some of the Air Force guys and you can play crud with them. It's a really violent game and they like to talk a lot of smack, so you've got to represent."

    So we go over to the pool table and there these gi-normous dudes playing crud. Huge. My XO said, "hey, this is our new guy, so take it easy on him heh, heh."

    So I said, "Which one of you Air Force pussies am I gonna punch in the throat first?"

    The XO was horrified. Later, I was thrown through the barrier which separated the game room from the rest of the club. But I got my fair share of shots in too.

    Great write-up.

    A shame Al Golden isn't likely, because he is going to be one hell of a coach in a BCS conference before long. What he's done with Temple is no coincidence, Golden is a defensive mastermind and knows how to bring in talent. His defenses at UVA in the 3-4 were tremendous despite having a moron for a head coach, and UVA fell off drastically after his departure. I got to talk with Golden for a bit a few years after running into him, and his football IQ is off the charts. However he's a PSU guy through and through, and we all know what that means...
