"Gillam is 220 now. He'll be 230 by the start of the season." :thumbsup:
"Our facilities are the best in the country. Better than Oregon's.....It will definitely Translate to better recruiting. It helped us some in this recruiting class this year. It's helping us tremendously in the next 'cause people are actually going through and seeing the product. So, as the season goes along it will help this year with those kids coming in 2016 and will help on the 2017 class. Building a program takes time and is a process. And now if you've got the facilities in place to help that that'll carry over but the kids on campus that are there now feel a great sense of pride, a great sense of understanding that Colorado's totally committed to being successful. And that gives you a sense of pride every day when you walk into the office."
Vic: "We were talkin off camera how you said more of those SEC kids want to play here. Why is that?"
Mac: "Well, the Pac 12 has made a big name for itself. I know ESPN voted the Pac 12 ahead of the SEC a couple of months ago. And also the skilled athletes there like to come play...we have more skill athletes go to the NFL out of the PAC 12 and our style of football is not as pounding so they feel like they can stay healthier longer and have a chance to play in the NFL."
Vic: "We've always talked about the head coach/son relationship. It's so hard to coach your son. Jay plays for the CU Buffs. He red shirted last year. What's he going to do this year?
Mac: "Well, he'll play receiver for us, uh, you know, he's had a good spring and I think he'll have a good fall. Excited about what he's doing. He's doing well in school. He loves it ther. Our whole family loves the area and loves Colorado and loves, we love Boulder."
Vic: "Do you hear from mom when you're coaching Jay?"
Mac: "No, I don't hear a word from Mom. Mom was an athlete herself. She knows he's gotta battle his own battles and he'll help us this year."
thanks for the recap

Thanks DBT, I'm sure that took awhile to transcribe all of that
I get sick of the "coaching your son" questions. A waste of interview time. What the hell is Mac going to say? He also did a "Questions from the audience" thing and the first question was, "Are you going to start recruiting Colorado kids." Of course, Mac was diplomatic saying, "We visit every Colorado high school, yada, yada, yada."
I made a mistake recruiting my own son.
One thing he said that I didn't mention is how much bigger and stronger the players look this year. I've never heard that before.
I'm hoping there is something to that. Logically, there should be when you go from being a sophomore dominated team to a junior dominated team and you also change the S&C approach to emphasize gaining mass and increasing max lifts. If ever there was a year when the change was significant for the team in general, it should be this year.
What you are saying also makes the "this team is young" excuse others use BS. We are no longer young. We will have a full Jr class with all but P & K returning guys that have played college ball & got significant reps for all but the G positions. We lost our best CB for the past 4 years and it looks like we may actually be better there. Time to turn the corner.

Thanks DBT. Rep.
since last summer?
Since every year ever. Show me some stats. I know they're tracking the stuff.
I don't think I've heard the "this team is young" excuse thrown around even once regarding the 2015 team.
He did mention or address that last year "we were "freshmen/sophomores" and this year we are "sophomores/juniors" and said this should be a strength. So, now he is saying, basically, that youth will not be an excuse this year. He said it. I heard it. He's on record.
Mac made sure the decision to offer Jay was not his but the assistants. Jay belongs there and thank God he's not the QB...Mac said he would not consider Jay coming in as QB. Very smart guy.
Jay will prove this season and next that he belongs, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him take a backup/depth role before his career is over.
If I'm interviewing my boss's son I'm probably going to hire him.
;-) Just going by what Mac said.
Definitely the smart thing to say.
I never want to hear how Neinas doesn't bring in recruits again!
What we kind of lose sight of is that Jay Mac was the 8th rated signee by Rivals out of a class of 21 guys. Completely legitimate signee who is likely to be productive as a RS-freshman. If we weren't all still suffering from PHSD (Post Hawkins Stress Disorder), we wouldn't have made much of this signing other than it being a good sign that HCMM is committed to staying here long-term.
I never had an issue with signing Jay. He's a good athlete. Mac was/is smart enough to nip any QB talk in the bud.
CBS write-up of the interview
headline: CU Buffaloes Coach Mike MacIntyre Answers 7 Questions From Fans
Q&A content: 2 recruiting, 3 scheduling, 2 Broncos. GMAFB. love Colorado, but man, is this ever a "pro-sports" area. I'll be excited to see how much/little that changes when the Buffs start winning.
