How many wins does MacIntyre need in 2015 to be safe?

  1. 0 - he's bulletproof until 2016

    9 vote(s)
    9.2%
  2. 1-3 - nearly bulletproof, but no improvement could end him

    23 vote(s)
    23.5%
  3. 4-6 - must show momentum, even if he falls short of a bowl

    65 vote(s)
    66.3%
  4. 7+ - bowl game or he's gone

    1 vote(s)
    1.0%

    MacIntyre included in the group.

    They placed him in the "Relatively Safe" Category, which equates to not really being on the Hot Seat.

    Below is what Ralphie Report had to say.

    What does AllBuffs think?

    http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2015/5/22/8612191/college-football-coaches-hot-seat-2015
    Mike MacIntyre, Colorado
    Regular season wins needed: Three
    A new boss could complicate things, but Ralphie Report's Jon Woods thinks the coach is safe.
    Three to five would still be a huge disappointment when considering the Buffaloes' experience and schedule, but I think the school would still give him one more year for stability, knowing that there is a very small class leaving after this season. But there is a new AD since his hiring, so that could come into play.

    Anything less than five wins and he will be in danger.

    3 wins would be a colossal failure. The argument for stability is strong, but seemingly fails in light of this staff's massive recruiting struggles.

    I expect at least 3 wins OOC and at least 3 wins in conference. Anything less and I will be disappointed.

    Edit: I like MikeMac, but the time for no expectations is over. Just win.

    I really think he will be back virtually no matter what happens, unless Cu has a 2012 type meltdown.

    I voted 1-3. I like him a lot, but the wildcard being his boss did not hire him. I really think he has the ability to turn this around. We have some great coaches on staff. Just have to get that 1 or 2 special kids that can make an immediate impact on the field to turn this BIG ass corner.

    I wouldn't say he's bulletproof, but he'd have to have a really bad 2015 to get canned.

    Less than 5 wins and he should be on the hot seat. 0-fer in conference again and he should be fired.

    I think it'll sort itself out quickly in the OOC. 4-0, things are looking good, 3-1 and it depends. Anything less than 3-1 and he's screwed.

    If he loses to Nicholls State he should be canned on the spot.

    The only reason I say 5 is because CU should be able to go 4-0 with this OOC schedule. The only wildcard being CSU due to the rivalry nature of the game. After that it will be entirely unacceptable for him to go winless in conference again.

    I feel like he should be on the Hotseat if he wins this year, gets new jerseys, new facilities and cannot build any momentum in recruiting. Carr and Lynott were the only players that stuck out for me in last year's class. Montez has upside, but that is the point...

    Just can't go winless in conference. I assume if we're good enough to win at least 1 in conference, we're good enough to win 2-3 OOC, so I expect 3-5 wins and he's good to go for another year.

    0-9 Pac 12? That may be enough to start looking for a replacement.

    Less than five wins and I'll be in danger, from myself, sadly.

    I think we lose this game for the second year in a row. The talent between CSU and CU has never been closer

    I think he's safe for 2015 unless we win only one game or zero, even then not sure that RG would fire him. 2016 is when he needs to get to bowl, any bowl.

    Think it needs to be 5 this year. I know I am going to have trouble staying on the he is not on the hot seat side with less than that.

    they have zero experience at arguably the most important position in sports. Not afraid of their RB's this year either. They have talent on D though, and our O-Line will need to be ready. Think CU should win though and will likely be favored.

    I'm not saying they are a great team, but the "CSU will be up for that game" reasoning is beyond tired. They are good enough to beat us straight up.

    Don't like the poll choices, but I think he needs 5 wins to avoid serious replacement talk.

    I'm actually confident this year. CU had no business beating CSU in 2013 and 2014 shouldn't have been as close as it was. I believe that MacIntyre significantly out-gameplanned McElwain every year and that Bobo is a significant step down in coaching acumen from McElwain. Plus, it will be nice to be the team with a veteran QB and established system for the first time in a long time.

    Not sure I agree with this.

    CSU usually has the advantage of it being the first game of the year. This is reflected in the overall record on games where it happens in Game 1, and games where it happens after.

    This year, CSU would be most vulnerable in Game 1. New OLine, new QB, new coach and a team that might be feeling a bit cocky. CU would have easily been able to take advantage of this with experienced QB and system. Instead, CSU gets to tune up with 2 home games. Normally, the later game gives CU's talent compared to the lambs a chance to shine. This year, with the talent being basically a wash, it just gives CSU a chance to settle in.

    For the reasons you stated, I would definitely prefer this being the opener this season.

    Placing a lot of faith in a unproven HC, unproven OC, decent DC, and a lot of production lost while CU returns just about everyone plus JUCO guys and Samson. CSU lost their two leading tacklers and their best corner on defense. Record setting QB and best RB. I'll take what we have returning over just about anyone they have returning. Who on CSU's team would start over CU's starters? Higgins would play over Fields, but I don't think he's as good as Spruce is. TE is probably the only answer here.

    If things were flipped, many would be saying CU has little chance.

    Uh how so? Is he not placing a lot of faith in an unproven coaching staff that lost a lot of production from the 2014 team? Followed by asking which CSU players would start for us if the talent level is as close as he says it is (which it isn't, a few years back yes)

    Those guys they "lost" from 2014 were not very good anyway, at least according to you.
