rather than getting caught up in a wave of emotion because the guy clearly is as CU as anyone out there, maybe we can try to examine the hire more rationally... with all that said, i think the following are the main issues that the committee will need to work through on a cabral hire: 1. can he coach all 3 phases of the game? he has admitted already that he is not tactically experienced with playcalling or the offensive side of the ball in general. i think he'll do great with special teams and, obviously, with the defense. but, what does he bring to the offensive gameplan, strategy, playcalling, and execution? so, yeah, the retort will be that he just needs a good coordinator. maybe. but, i think it is an open question. 2. where does he stack up, objectively speaking, against other viable candidates? who else is out there? are they more proven? better rounded? i understand cost is always an issue, but, is he really the BEST hire, in terms of experience and everything else, that we could make, relative to the candidate pool? again, maybe. but, i think this is an open question. would you really put him ahead of a miles or Mac, or even a richt? 3. who are the staff? on this point, i would like to think there would be consensus. this staff needs a total overhaul. they collectively lost the most games in the history of CU football. you cannot extricate all the crappiness by just changing the hc, imho. i've already seen several internet pundits posting proposed staffs that only change out riddle and collins. that won't work. i think a hard look needs to be taken at whatever staff cabral would try to put together and make sure it is a staff that is b12 caliber. collectively, this last one was not. i love cabral. i hope he stays. i want to see him succeed. but, we've just come through the darkest period of CU football, eclipsing even the infamous crappiness of the fairbanks era. let's do this methodically and without losing our rational heads.
