http://www.coachsaban.net/index2.php Bohn said that he has people at CU monitoring internet scum boards so I get to make my case for one person and I have openly supported Leach as the next CU coach but we need to take a look at McElwain and I apologize if this is not the first McElwain thread. I looked at McElwain's bio and was very impressed with his exprience over the years. He is the current Alabama OC and has won a NC in addition to a Heisman trophy winner as well. We all know of his western roots but Big Mac wasn't from the west so that doesn't mean jack. We all know that he made Pat Hill look good at Frenso State before getting the 'Bama job. But what did he exactly do before Frenso State and even the Raiders of the NFL? What I am going to post could change not only your mind but my own mind. Between 2003-05, he coached at Michigan State. During that time, there was a new record set for receptions and recieving yards at that school. In 2004 he had All-Americans at punter and kicker for the Spartans...and he coached 'em! *gasp* we are talking special teams which was the biggest problem under Hawkins. The funny thing is that he has a connection to Montana State and Eastern Washington. He was the QB for the EWU Eagles and graduated from there. They were D2 back then. Then he was the Montana State OC and they set some records there. McElwain has coached at the FCS level, the mid-major FBS level, and now the BCS level with success. Hiring a first time coach would be cheaper than hiring a proven coach and that is something I will concede that hampers CU's chances at getting Leach or Miles. Just compared McElwain to EB's resume and it's obvious who has the better resume. Plus Crowder came from Bud Wilkinson's wonderful OU staff, McCartney came from Bo Schembler's wonderful Michigan staff, and could we say McElwain came from Nick Saban's wonderful Alabama staff?
