A university where you were once a leader is making decisions about the future of its football program. There is a process for this, and it is taking place. You know the old saying about making sausage? Well it's not always pretty, and that's why we let those people do their jobs and present us with the final product, instead of watching the blood and guts get stirred and seasoned. If you feel a need to be in the limelight, go do something spectacular that is about you. Your comments have been embarrassing and have made many of us re-think our opinion of you as a supporter of the program. Sure, you like the buffs. It was a highlight in your life. Winning a championship was huge, and the other accolades were deserved. But this is not your time. There is a new coach who deserves to be introduced the right way, and an athletic department trying to make this a positive step. Let them do their jobs. Ours is to stand on the sidelines and applaud mightily, and throw our support behind the new guy. Don't belittle this choice by making it about race instead of qualifications. Don't insert yourself into the decision by claiming that you "made it happen." Be proud of the men you helped mold, but let them take credit for their own accomplishments. You have a great legacy with CU, let us have those memories untainted by egotism and grandstanding. When John Henderson calls you, remind yourself "this is NO FRIEND of the Colorado Buffs." Write in ball-point on your palm: Henderson has own agenda, do not spill the beans. Just so you don't forget again and start babbling on. I'm sure if Jon or Eric gets the job (and it's looking like Jon will), they could have come to you for advice and support. If I were Mike Bohn, my first instruction to either of them would be: don't tell Mac anything you don't want to see in the press. He doesn't know when to keep a secret. Mac, you could end up being on the outside looking in, instead of a trusted and valuable resource. And that will be your own doing.
