    Mike Bellotti (sp?) is leaving the AD position at Oregon for a job as an analyst at ESPN. He must want to get back into coaching and found that working as an administrator isn't for him. He's a proven winner and knows the Pac 10 well. He also is an attainable coach and not a "pie in the sky" type hire. Could he be the guy that leads us into the 12 Pac?

    Belotti done at Orygun

    Wonder if there is more to this and we'll see even more Ducks issues start to come out?

    I'm pretty sure the issues the Ducks are having pretty much guarantees Blotty wouldn't be coming to Boulder...

    "Bellotti wanted to try and do both ESPN color guy and be Oregon AD. Doing midweek work for ESPN and on Oregon byes be color guy for TV."

    "Discussions with ESPN had been ongoing for months."

    Bellotti was nothing but class as the Duck's coach. Players, and their families loved him, and he pretty much avoided controversy. I know there's a lot of hate towards the Ducks here, but I always looked to Bellotti as a guy who could mainatin quality character, build a program and win (with a little help from Phil Knight, of course). He also recruited lights out, and was known for his innovation as a recruiter.

    Of course he was the AD for the recent problems that of plagued U of O, but he wasn't the coach. None of this happened on his watch.

    I realize that this entire thread is speculative, but I think he'd be a great hire for CU.

    As did Earl Bruce. Still remember that press conference.

    I thought it was kind of sad, actually. He might have done the wrong thing, but historically he was a great coach. He was fired from OSU when he was still the winningest active coach in the Big 10, and then to go out with such little dignity was unfortunate. But then again, he probably shouldn't have been so physical with his players. It all happened at a time when the public perception of that behavior was changing.

    One of my favorites:

    When asked why he went for two despite a 36-point lead against Michigan, Hayes quipped, "Because I couldn't go for three."

    :lol:

    Would be awesome to have him leading our charge into the 12 Pac.

    This guy knows how to do this thing...I don't ask for much but that simple fact in a football coach. So sick of our current FAILED experiment.

    that michigan/osu documentary on hbo did a great job highlighting the hayes/bo years. pretty ****ing sad hearing them talk about each other and the respect they had for another.

    It would nice to have an identity as a football team. Seems like the current staff can't give the team an identity -- one minute we're going to be a smash-you-in-the-mouth team, the next minute we're a spread team, the next minute we're running the pistol offense. You hire Belotti, you know what you're getting -- a wide-open offense and a defense that will stick you.

    Plus, our uniforms have gotten so F*CKED UP that he can't do too much more damage there.

    Seriously???

    I mean seriously as in, "seriously, you don't think Bellotti can **** them up more???".

    OK, so he could screw them up more. But they've gotten so bad over the past 4-5 years that I really don't care anymore.

    Did I hear, though, that CU will be playing all season next year with the 1990 jerseys? If so, praise be to God.

    I would take Bruce Smith for coach right now, and he's dead!

    That may all very well be true. I'm just curious what makes you think any of that would matter once the folks in Boulder starting going to town.... :huh:

    Aren't you guys thinking Woody Hayes? He was the puncher. At the Gator Bowl v. Clemson I think. Earle Bruce was the weeper at the CSU presser...

    He would be a fantastic hire if CU was willing to pony up the money to get him

    Earl Bruce was a former OSU coach (succeeded Hayes) and then hired at CSU. He was fired from CSU for assaulting a player. He lost his **** at the press conference.

    Earle Bruce went Woody Hayes on a goat player? I vaguely remember him boo hooing into the cameras but I didn't know he went MMA on a player. So when will Jim Tressel go upside Terrelle Pryor's head? Is it something in the Columbus water supply?
