    Great coaches take MONEY. Any of you have MONEY?

    Yeah, we suck. But we have no money. We have no big time boosters. There isn't a rich booster in sight who is willing, or cares, to put up the bucks.

    Yeah, I bet Cincinnati had a lot of money to hire Brian Kelly..:lol:



    Good coaches can be found with big money and limited money..

    If you want to entice a great coach to the Big XII, you had better have bucks.

    Kelly was an assistant for MSU's D'Antonio and a MAC guy....he didn't just drop out of the sky. D'Antonio was a good hire for MSU based on what you knew..,..he made Cincy competitive.

    Uh, no he wasn't.. Kelly came in after Dantonio. He has no ties with dantonio. He was coaching at Central Michigan before this..

    There is a lot more money out there than you think. I will just leave it at that.

    I remember that. Kelly was the guy that won 2 bowl games after he was hired, right (old team and new one)?

    Totally absurd comment backed up with no facts at all..



    Note to DBT, OU didn't give 2 million to get Bob Stoops to come coach there while he was the DC at UF.

    TTech didn't give big bucks to hire Mike Leach off of Stoops staff..

    Kansas didn't give bucks to hire Fatgino off of Stoops staff.



    You want to sit around and make excuses that we can't do this and can't do that feel free.. I'm just not going to join you in the Oh, woe is us bs talk..

    :yeahthat:

    This idea that CU doesn't have a pot to piss in is a nice myth, but is totally untrue.

    i'm only wrong about half of it. Dantonio put Cincy on the Big East map.

    i do agree that i'm not in the woe is us group. if KSU, KU, and MU can play or win BCS games since OO....we have no excuse.

    edit: MU has not played in a BCS game.

    agree, and the idea some of us have that faculty are this unstoppable force that prevents sports success....is BS.

    i've worked at CU since 01 and it's nonsense. it's easier to believe....but BS.

    It takes money to KEEP a great coach. Landing one doesn't necessarily cost that much.

    Bob Stoops was hired at OU for less than what Dan Hawkins is making now.

    How so?

    Because of the one year contract limitation?

    That is a red herring.

    Right. Because good coaches NEVER want to coach in BCS conferences. :lol:
