    Optimistic here too.

    He's not a "splash" hire, but he very well may be the "right" hire. A lot depends on the assistants he brings in

    All you can be with any hire, even the top guys like Miles or Saban. There are no guarantees.

    Optimistic. Guy knows how to deal with crappy situations (SJSU was even more of a mess than we are), comes from a pretty good coaching tree, should know CA for recruiting. Hope to be happy with his ACs, since that's really where the rubber hits the road.

    And while it's not specific to MacIntyre, the assumed promise of new facilities adds to the optimism for the future.

    I'm optimistic, but I am most definitely in a show-me stage with the football team.

    In any case, at least I have SOMETHING to look forward to for next football season. If we had stayed the course, there was no reason for any optimism.


    Go Buffs! (it's fun to say that about CU football again)

    MacIntyre brings credibility with him that the last coach didn't have. CU has needed a coach to rebuild this thing since Barnett left and the two coaches that followed had no experience doing so. BJ would have been the bigger hire but MacIntyre is the RIGHT hire I think, then again who the heck knows.

    Had there been an underwhelmed, but cautiously optimistic option that would have been perfect.
    No more blind faith from me, like Daaah, I need to see improvement at all levels to call this a success.

    Impression seems underwhelming to some since they can't spell his name correctly.

    At the very least we should be beating teams like Sacramento State and CSewe again. That would be major improvement.

    Underwhelmed. If the resume was a bit thicker prior to SJSU, I might be more optimistic. Like Daaah said, though, at least there is something to look forward to next season.

    I hope so. He seems like a decent guy that's very well qualified.

    Quite confident. Has a good track record and is a great fit recruiting wise. Need to see what type of staff he will builds.

    Mike MacIntire is maybe one of the best coaches in the country! There is no way we could have done better them him. Look at ANY of the other candidates (Excluding Gary Anderson) and none had the knowledge of how to change not only a football team, but an entire culture within an institution. The only thing that has me worried is why we didn't go get him immediately. I guess that Bohn was trying to make a splash, like with Hawkins.

    Right now, we not only need a guy that can coach fundamentals and X's and O's but a guy that can rescue our team from a culture of failure and defeat.

    There was no one in the country that had done that better that Mike MacIntire. GREAT HIRE!

    What's your impression of the Mike MacIntire hire?

    Not sure what else you want from his résumé...

    Could be the best hire in the nation this cycle...

    I think this is the type of hire we could expect. A lot of fans want an impact hire (big time coach from a BCS program) but it is too much of a career risk for those type of coaches. MacIntyre has a lot of experience but never seemed to stay anywhere for more than 2 or 3 years so it is hard to get a bead on his long term accomplishments.

    Pluses - the turnaround at San Jose State is nice, has some experience recruiting in California, SEC experience should be beneficial. Minuses - recruiting ability is an unknown, seemed to bring in 4 or 5 JCs every year at SJS (including their QB), BCS coordinator experience is limited, unknown as to what type of quality of assistants he can bring to CU.

    Time will tell but we have to hope for the best.

    I disagree with this. You could say that about Hawkins and Embree, but I think this is what makes Mac different than the previous two. He has coached in both the ACC and SEC, 3 different NFL teams, A DC at two different FBS programs, and was named FBS assistant coach of the year while he was a DC at Duke.

    A better choice than Food Cart, IMO. He was on the top 5 list for most on day one. He's done all the things we need, turned a program around, BCS coordinator experience, West Coast ties (huge.) Going after JCs won't fly at CU, however, so we'll see how he handles having that hand tied behind his back. I'd also like to know more about the turnaround at SJSU, which pieces of the puzzle were key to that and how much MacIntyre was involved. I'm just glad we have some stability.

    1. A couple more years as a coordinator some place? More college coaching experience? More experience coaching a BCS-level squad (Duke doesn't count). Some experience coaching a winning college football team (other than this year).

    2. So, you're saying MacIntyre was your first choice all along?

    cautiously optimistic. I saw a lot more optimism for BJ which is maddening as BJ never built a program, and mac has.

    Optimistic. Not cautiously so, either. I feel much better about this hire than I did about the Embree hire. The days of 1-11 are over. Of that, I'm absolutely certain.
