    We need a clean sweep of the program. Bohn, if you're lucky enough to survive this latest debacle, you better have Jim Tressel on the speed dial. The guy is the right man for the job. He's a blue collar guy. He's won national championships on the I-AA and I-A level. He's instantly respected by every coach who he will come into contact with. We will see little to no transfers and decommits. He also won't leave once he turns the program around.
    Jim Tressel. Hire him. Now.

    Petrino isn't going to happen. I see him staying in the south. Jmo.

    Tressell would be fantastic, but would the boosters step up and open their wallets?

    I said it another thread, I'd be all for Petrino, but no way do I see this administration hiring a high-profile football coach, especially someone with baggage like Petrino.

    If it would help to get Tressel here, I'd be willing to open a tattoo shop in Boulder.

    I can't stand Tressel and thought he was dirty at tOSU, but if it helps us to avoid weekly embarrassment that seems to be the norm, I'm all for it.

    The Washington State coach could be hired with the right amount of money.

    Wow, he misses the first five weeks and the bowl game in his first season? Seems like an almost ideal situation to me: fire JE tomorrow and bring in Tressel, let him sit out those five games in this lost season. He'd be back for the last 3 games, which should be just enough to become familiar with the team and get a head-start on next season. All of the outrage over hiring a coach who is "dirty" should blow over by the end of the year, he'll still have time to recruit, put together a staff, and hit the ground running this spring, with all of the penalties behind him. No-brainer, right? Right? Oh, this is DiStefano and Bohn we're talking about...

    Bobby Petrino is the guy that we need. Tressell is old and Butch Davis is coming off an academic scandal. No.

    Petrino ****s hot 25 year old blondes on the side and wins football games. Sounds like a winner to me.

    Bobby Petrino would be my choice. But will still give John Embre atleast 3 years. He is no miracle worker, Hawkins left him a mess After saying that, we need a new dC and OC. Change the scheme, can't have a power running game, when your OL is not good at it.

    Both the Internal investigation and the NCAA investigation ruled he had no involvement or wrongdoing at NC...plus the rest of his career is pretty stellar. Think about an 8-4 season right now. Seriously think about it

    I don't think they'd even consider Petrino. Not even after 0-12.

    Butch wasn't that good at UNC. I think he's past overdue. Petrino is a much better coach and knows how to build an offense.

    People do you really think that the admin is going to let JE go with a big buy out, and dig deep into the pockets to pay for a real head coach......HELL NO!!!! CU football is done, it is sad to say and even worse to witness.....

    CU football is done until they prove otherwise

    Supposedly the buyout is not that bad for him. Someone quoted his contract in another thread last week or so.

    And they had every chance to do that after the hawkins era...... but no, we go out and hire a TE coach to become the next head coach, and a running backs coach for the OC to turn this program around.

    So go from hiring an incompetent coach to hiring a proven cheater?

    Good plan.

    Petrino should be on speed dial. Only male interns allowed in the office and we are good for the next decade.

    Are those the only two choices?

    A guy who the NCAA has placed a five-year show-cause penalty on and a guy who is no better than a TE coach?

    If those are the only choices might as well shut the program down.
