    He's not the sexy choice a Shanny would be but he is a damn good
    X's & O's kind of guy.

    Don't like. I still think we need a coach from a big time conference.

    I am really not sure if it is appropriate to poach two coaches from AFA in 3 years.

    Would a guy leave his alma mater to come to CU? I realize it is a bigger job, but I'd be surprised.

    I do not like this idea. We need to stop getting coaches from AFA and start taking prime candidates from big programs.

    I actually like Calhoun alot. He just re-upped at AFA. He's making pretty close to what CU would likely be paying our next HC. There would also be a ($2.5MM?) buyout involved to get him out of his contract. I'd say the chances are pretty slim.

    Let's get a big name like Nick Saban or Urban Meyer. Don't settle for a big time assistant, because OC's and DC's have no track record as HC's and often fail flat out. Fail like lose a lot AND have players in trouble all the time, etc.

    Nope, we need a proven HC from a major conference. Maybe Pete Carroll?

    hot coordinator froma big time program would be ideal if not Shannahan. Someone like a Venables or Strong.

    I have always found it curious why people use the "like a ..." phrase...

    There is only one CHarlie Strong and one Brent Venables.... so who is it that is "like a" them?

    :lol: it's just slang, it cracks me up when people say it in person. It works a lot better on the internet. Lets get an Urban Meyer in here. How about a Tim Tebow at QB?

    I'm assuming you know what he meant, but in case you're really asking for clarification, he's just saying a big name coordinator from a big time school.

    it is funnier when people say it on talk radio... there is one host here in Philadelphia that will blast a caller when they say.... "lets bring a Bill Belichek type in here to coach the Eagles."

    Like the Eagles owner can just clone him on the spot.....

    I knew what Leash meant.... I just like parsing his words and making fun of him...

    Well a Bill Belichek is easily found, Andy Reid and McNabb should be ran out of town immediately.
