    Would you rather the staff go out and make another panic offer tying up a scholly on another QB who will never play for the Buffs like many we have had in recent years.

    This kid will do what we need. He will provide an arm to take reps in practice, be able to help with the scout team, and maybe take a few emergency snaps allowing the coaches to save Apsays RS if need be.

    Or would you rather we spend a scholly on another Dorman or Burnette type.

    He just has to eat reps in the spring. Apsay will be here in the fall. Good move for both parties.

    1. It's too late to make an offer and have the guy here for spring ball.

    2. Someone was needed to eat reps.

    3. Getting a guy who was a really good HS QB and is already known by teammates & involved with the program was a great solution.

    I have no idea how or why anyone would react negatively to this news. It's a better situation than we had this morning for QB during spring ball.

    my only negative reaction is that this has all the markings of a desperate program. And while I fully realize that we ARE a desperate program, I don't like it when that is so clearly illustrated.

    I guess if you'd somehow put it out of your mind that we only had 2 arms for spring practices, then this would have been an unpleasant wake up call.

    If you folks think positive...this could be an awesome feel good story...what happens if this guy comes out and takes CU to 10 wins next season? Pull for the underdog why not.

    I agree. It's about time we closed the borders around campus.

    Good news. But I can't imagine doing what this young man is doing...you get the joy of a grueling football routine, never see the field AND an insurmountable student loan debt.

    B Mac > Barnett > Neuheisel > Hawkins > Embree.

    HCMM is TBD as to where he fits on that list. But he is, in my mind, probably already between Hawkins and Neuheisel.

    Still, to your point, this is a program that couldn't hire a big name coach for cost reasons. And has been dragging out a facilities upgrade for, what, almost a decade now? I think we both share the conviction that this administration has only a half hearted commitment to athletics after pouring a ton of money in and getting a big nasty media scandal and not much else in return. Until that guy in the front office retires were probably mired for a few more years.

    With Rick George coming on board as AD we seem to finally have someone who ties us back to the successes under Gee, McCartney and Marrolt. This is someone who remembers what that kind of quality looked like. Bohns departure and George's hire might be a sign of change. He did not hire MacIntyre but I still view HCMM, despite the gripes about recruiting, as a major upgrade over where we were. What George does about this over the next five years should be telling in terms of the future. He seems to have left a pretty good job to take this gig on. Lets hope he got some clear buying signs about what his authority level would be.

    I guess were stuck with baby steps in climbing our way out this hole. Its been a long hard road for anyone thats a fan.

    I'm under no illusions that this football program will be turned around quickly. We have two things conspiring against us; One, years and years of apathetic oversight leading to a deadly decay in the program; Two, the teams we're trying to compete against are all getting better as fast or faster than we are. We can improve and still lose more games. We actually need some other schools in the Pac 12 to regress for us to improve. The combination of those two factors means it is going to take a long, long time for CU to regain respectability. Is MM the right guy? Hard to know for sure. He's doing everything possible, though. I don't think there's anybody else who could come in here and do a better job.

    ^^This^^

    I can't help but think our last two coaches would have responded to this situation by panicking and going out to give an offer to a kid who was never going to be good enough to contribute and costing us a scholly for at least a couple years.

    The mistake is not what we do now, the mistake was losing every QB we had including Wood. With our line in 2014 there is strong chance we will need to go 2 or 3 deep at qb. Throw in a non-qual/injury and you have nothing left on the roster.

    And sure, my post was an unwarranted drive-by criticism but hey, it's Colorado Football. Reap what you sow. Back to tad ball.
