    I'm sure the RSSbot will be all over it, but I just caught this story on cubuffs.com. This actually gives me a little confidence for this season.

    Couple of interesting quotes:
    That guy (Prince) knows so much about football . . . . Last year with coach (Dan) Hawkins being the receivers coach, he was so busy doing his head coach stuff, too, that Kiesau had some added things put on him."

    -Hawkins coaching the receivers hurt us so much. When he had to do head coach stuff, Kiesau had to help with the receivers, in addition to being the QB coach, all while being a first year OC. Thats alot to deal with.

    When CU opens Saturday against Colorado State (noon, Invesco Field at Mile High, The Mtn.), there will be one offensive sideline change. Kiesau will continue to call plays from the coaches' booth, while Prince will assume Hawkins' sideline role of getting personnel in and out of the huddle.


    -I know that hawk has the overall veto, but I like the idea of Prince handling the personal, not blue collar Hawk. Hopefully Prince knows that we need the talented guys out there, not just the guys that work extra hard.



    This article just proves what a good hire Prince was.

    I'm definitely a fan of the Prince hire. People also speak pretty highly of Kiseau so assuming Hawk keeps his hand out of the cookie jar the offense should be pretty good this year.

    Best part about that is definitely the change to prince doing the substitutions. I bet/hope this means FAR less running in and out of the huddle, disrupting rhythym etc. Also like that him and Keisau are on the same page. God I hope Keisau doesn't get good and then hired away from us. Tired of training coaches.

    Kind of a good problem to have, though.

    For once, I think him getting hired away if he becomes hot is much less likely because we actually have him under a multi year contract, so for once that can't be used against us.

    Great point. Wouldn't that be nice for all our coaches? I wonder how much the state loses from lost buy-outs on contracts....and not just for college sports coaches.
