    Who were the position coaches in charge of recruiting these guys when we "dropped" them?

    These drops were not decided at the position coach level.

    Rippy and Willingham were Cabral guys, though.

    Parsons was Brookhart and Bieniemy, primarily.

    Strange that CSU wasn't all over Willingham. Must be more to the story.

    18 year olds and politics don't mix.

    My point exactly, many people are crying over LB recruiting and Coach Cabral's "drop off" we he had the best prospect he could get his hands on in the last 2 classes bounced by his boss. Same Boss who reportedly is making him a fall guy.

    Willingham was a silent commit to CU but ended up verbally committing to UCF. He wanted to go there but his mom wanted to keep him home. He ended up not having his head/heart in the right place and came back to Colorado after 1 season.

    At the time Embree seemed to make the right choice by letting the kid out of his commitment to follow his heart but after watching this for the 3rd straight cycle I can now say that anytime you see Embree making any kind of decision. You have to assume a good coach would do the opposite.

    I still can't believe we let Rippy go. That was just complete jack assedness by the coaches.

    Right. I was referring to the story after he left UCF. My bad.

    He had to go the D2 rout and is now at Northern Colorado.
