    Who's that 'mentor' guy they brought in? Shouldn't he be on the list?

    Bob Simmons made formal application for the UNLV job, FWIW. That doens't sound like a guy who's been given any sign he'll be in the running at CU.

    Butch Jones at CMU. Sounds liek Hawkins part two, does he have any BCS experience?

    Troy Calhoun, same concern as Butch Jones, although I like what he has done at AFA.

    Lefty - What off field baggage has Bobby Hauck had at Montana?
    Mike Stoops is at Arizona, won't leave so I am assuming you are referring to Mark Stoops.

    Well, quite honestly, and what not, I think Pat Jones is a sure fire knucklehead.



    (if you have ever listened to Pat Jones speak, you know what I am talking about)

    Why is Al Golden never really listed as a candidate if we are looking at mid-major guys. I know he is an east coast guy, but come on, he got Temple of all teams to what, 9-2?

    I am sure that is a pipe dream (isnt he an OSU alum?)... but that dude gets it done. One of the most overlooked coaches in the county IMO.

    By the way Logan lost his FirstBank gig about a year ago when they did an image makeover.

    The guy that coached my Pop Warner team in 5th and 6th grade. We were undefeated both years. I saw him last week and he isnt coaching anywhere.

    The ones that seem to be on the A-List based on who the rumors are coming from:

    Sonny Dykes
    Jon Embree
    David Gibbs
    Butch Jones
    Brent Venables

    I would think that someone like Mike Shanahan or Les Miles would trump them all if interested and available.

    IMO, no BCS coach will leave his current gig to come to Boulder if his team has seen the top 25 in the past three years. I doubt any of the high flying mid-majors (Utah, TCU, Boise, did I just say that?, or BYU) are worried about their coach leaving for CU.

    That leaves a BCS coordinator or mid-major HC. I'd lean towards the Coordinator route.


    One other name Ed Warriner, KU OC who's likely to be looking for work soon.

    One other, McCarney former ISU HC, current USF DC.
    Still one more, J.D. Brookhart form Akron.
    Just thought of another, Larry Fedora at So. Miss.

    Agree! Kansas, Mizzou and Nebraska have invaded Texas lately while CU still struggles to get kids out of that state.

    Cabral?

    Todd Graham - HC Tulsa

    Mike Bobo - OC/QB Georgia if there is any shakeup there.

    Personally, (aside from the Shanny-claus) I am leaning towards Strong or Sumlin as my favorites.

    Part of me wants to see this just to see the pure comedic value of Phil Fulmer trying to fit in at CU and in the town of Boulder. Most of me realizes that he is a very poor fit though.
