    Just wanted to see a what the overall feeling is.. 1 being Do not want and 5 being ecstatic.
    Although I'd prefer a Les Miles, I'd still rate EB a 5, really getting pumped thinking about him possibly being the next coach.

    EB fires me up.

    Plus he's a lights out recruiter who is highly respect and has deep contacts in the coaching community. Throw in that the CU fan base and boosters are really excited about him.

    Ecstatic.

    Ecstatic. The thing that would pull it down would be if his assistant coaches were blah.

    How many other programs would consider EB for head coach? The lack of coordinator experience is also a big factor in my mind. I voted 2.

    This^^^^^ I think he is what this team needs! I know I will up my donations if he is named.

    This^^^^^ However, I am confident that he knows a lot of people and can assemble a quality staff.

    i agree with this sentiment....what's the market "value" of Bienemy? I'd say the step to OC could be there at a BCS school....but, as HC? We seem to be alone in that. However, with an experienced but not retread BCS staff (no Carl Torbush types) and coordinators right now, today....I could go to 3.5 or maybe 4 if i vote with my heart. landing a few 4 star types right out of the box and i could negotiate a bit higher.

    A lot actually, there are many high words on EB from NFL teams. A lot of coaches out there thought EB was close to getting a HC job. I don't think the no coordinator experience is much of a factor. Put a good staff in that can call plays and mix with EB's recruiting and intensity. EB is a coach!

    I put 4 just because I'd really like Les miles but EB would be #2 for me for sure.

    I have to go with a 5 on this one. I am excited cause he is a lights out recruiter (which is half of being successful anyway in college football) and he has a fire for this program. I was kind of curious about what others thought of him so I started looking things up and listening to KOA, ESPN and others. Several things actually made me think he would be a great choice. First of all they have done interviews with several NFL coaches and players who have said EB was and is one of the best, most passionate coaches they have ever seen and they all love him to death. This coming from NFL caliber coaches and players is a great sign that he knows what he is doing. Secondly, there was some talk on the national level that EB is probably not completely ready for a major HC gig..... but he was labeled by ESPN as one of the best potential coaches in college football. They said he is one of the best young coaches and while he lacks the experience now, if CU specifically does not pick him up now they will never again get a shot at him cause he will be somewhere else for sure. Basically the ESPN/FOX/Coaches/NFL player take was he may not be totally ready but he WILL be an incredible coach and now is our shot to get him. I believe it was either Brad Childress or a Vikes player even said CU would be stupid to not take him right now. That is a lot of support for EB and I would rather let him learn a little on the job and take a few years to totally figure it out vs missing out on having potentially one of the best coaches in college. And put it this way..... can things get worse? I can promise if EB gets a good staff he can at least double the wins Hawk had his first year.

    Ditto. I'm all about being wrong in a few years, but I can't shake the John Blake feeling I have.

    I voted 2.

    I went with 4. I think EB is going to be a SOLID hire for us, but until I see who he brings in as assts, I can't say I'm ecstatic - yet. But I'm hopeful.

    One thing's for sure, this program will be on the upswing with this hire.

    nice post. And remember, if EB is succesful here, he could be here a long time. I don't think we need to worry about him using us as a stepping stone. He is very passionate about CU. I think we are his dream job.

    From what NFL players and coaches say (who I think probably know a good coach when they see it)...... EB was gonna get a HC job within the next couple years without question.

    I know some people think coordinator experience is key..... but getting the talent to Boulder is probably the biggest responsibility a HC has right now. No one does that better than EB.

    True. Miles' clock management has excited LSU fans for years.

    I see limited downside to EB, all references to John Blake aside. If you have a guy that can recruit, it's stocked up for the next guy. Limit the downside further by booking a top notch staff.

    I think EB would be fantastic with everything that is related to football: game planning, coaching, recruiting, team building, etc. My confidence in him getting good players and teaching them how to play football couldn't be higher.

    The only things that are keeping me from being a "hell yeah!" for EB as HC are all the non-football related tasks he will have to do as well. A HC is a coach but also an administrator, a PR guy, a fundraiser and a politician. If he can't manage the program (all coaches and support staff), woo the press into favorably showcasing his team, glad hand alumni and boosters into opening their wallets, and negotiate/manipulate the AD and the university staff into giving the football program what it needs then he will be doomed as the HC no matter how good his players and staff are. He may be skilled in all these areas already, I don't know I haven't seen him in any of those roles at all, but that is what is causing me to pause on him being HC.

    I put a 2 because I thought that would mean he is my second choice. Top choice for me is still Miles but EB would be fantastic. Also, who the Hell is Holybuff? I am not hearing that it is a done deal anywhere else at this point and if it is going to be EB, why wait till next week? Does not make any sense if it is a done deal at all.

    I'd say I'm at a 4.5/5 on him. I jumped on the EB bandwagon after I watched that video someone posted of him doing film study with Adrian Peterson. Something about that just gave me a good feeling. I think he could do great things here and if we can't get Miles (which never really seemed much more than wishful thinking), I'm 100% on board with EB.

    That video was interesting in that it showed Bieniemy really getting into the technique of being a running back. I was somewhat surprised to see that level of detail, getting into the footwork and so forth, not only in an NFL environment but also with Adrian Peterson. Bieniemy was very focused in that video and seemed to be really drilling that technique with AD.

    I always thought that Bieniemy seemed like a fantastic recruiter and a pretty good motivator, but I always wondered about his X's and O's knowledge. Watching that video impressed me that he knew a lot more than I have been giving him credit for.

    I went with a 3 because of all that stuff in your second paragraph, and more. There's just no way at all of knowing if he can game plan, if he can run a program, if he can manage a staff. Nothing says he can't, but it's up in the air. He'll recruit like hell, but on the rest I think we just have to hope for the best. That's a solid 3 to me...

    I went with three. Excited about his passion for CU and his proven recruiting ability on the west coast. Also feel like he is a really good up-and-coming assistant. Also feel like this is a high-risk, high-reward proposition, especially dependent on how the assistant coaching staff shapes up.
