    Not my top choice, but I could see Ted finding Boulder the perfect place to get rejuvenated and turn the Buffs into a consistent winner and bowl team. Assuming he assembled the right staff (aka NOT Steve Marshall), he would bring in solid talent and likely get us some excellent QB play. Despite his long tenure at Cal, he's only 51.

    I'd be much more in favor of Tedford if this was next year and he was able to take a year off to recharge his batteries between coaching jobs.

    Again, hardly our top choice

    On a different note, methinks you're in for a rude awakening that the success you found under Ted is about as good as it's going to get for you Bears

    Feisty herd today! Seriously, you'll like Tedford. He just needs a little R & R first.

    You just can't get excited about this. The lack of winning at the highest level and inconsistency are all red flags. I'd be all for him as a coordinator, but you can't take the throwaway from a mid level PAC 12 team and think it may take you to the rose bowl

    I feel like if we got him a couple of years ago it'd be great. His star has really fallen the last couple of years, though. They seemed to be doing really well (ranked #1 overall at some point I remember) and then Longshore appeared and everything went downhill from there.

    seriously, this thread needs to be closed asap.

    CU's plan is to hire a coach from the same conference that just got fired for not winning enough? really?

    the idea of jeff tedford is just about as full retard you can go.

    close the thread and ban all supporters of this idea. we do not want to give the AD any stupid ideas. lord knows they have had enough without our help.

    I'm not going to be overjoyed if we were to hire Tedford, but you don't see why he's a decent candidate? He took over a mess at Cal and promptly turned them into a consistent 7-9 win school. The last couple of years he has fallen off for whatever reason. He's well known as a QB guru and his offenses are usually solid.

    The similarities to CU are striking imo. He took over when they didn't have a winning season in like 8 years. The previous year they went 1-10. His first year they went 7-5. He recruits well, knows California obviously, knows the P12 well.

    Not saying he's a perfect or he wouldn't be getting fired by Cal, but he's not Dave Logan as a candidate either.

    and that is absolutely not what colorado needs at this point. perhaps if the timing were different i might agree with this thought but, this is not a win hire at this time for CU. the man needs at least a year off and different conference to re-establish his credentials. CU can not afford to make that gamble.

    come on man. forget the name... let me tell you this... coach is fired from a mid level team in your conference for not winning and your school just fired its coach for not winning. so, your solution is to hire your conference rivals coach who got fired for not winning? tell me where that makes any sense?

    but, on balance, i think i would take JT over dave logan. not that that is a great deal or anything....

    You're not wrong 4db :smile2:

    I'm just saying, we might hire Calhoun, who has won 7 or so games in the MWC. We might also hire a guy that has produced a ton of 7+ win seasons in the P12. I think I'd rather go with the guy that I know will win 7 in the P12.

    It does send a poor message though. Not good enough for Cal? Well we here at Colorado are fine with losing seasons and not winning enough! Just please beat Sacramento State and it's all good.

    Tedford had TWICE the talent at cal, a great recruiter in the dl coach and couldn't win.


    If TEDFORD or CALHOUN get a sniff, bohn and the other two idiots still have no clue.

    CU needs a guy who will attract recruits, not another I-25 hire. Calhoun won't get the BCS recruits in here, he oor tedofrd would show everyone how cheap cu is and they will never make a commitment to football.

    Is this what you believe he is, or what he should be?

    This. He's not a top choice, but dismissing him as complete garbage is the wrong move. He had 9 winning seasons in 11 years at a Pac school that was as bad off, or worse off, than CU when he took over.

    Per Ringo, Tedford has no interest in the CU gig. Views it as being too difficult for numerous reasons.
