    I say fire. I expect not fire. If he isn't fired, I will settle for proven coordinators to replace OC & DC.

    He should be fired this year, but he won't be fired this year.

    How is this a poll without a poll? I feel like I'm trying to vote in Florida.

    I voted "yes", but would have preferred Lefty's option of firing vigorously and with panache. I'd like to see the marching band involved in some fashion. Maybe have the tumbling cheerleader in the mix as well.

    voted yes. I never liked the hire anyway, especially when it was announced all his friends coming with him. I really think he needs to be relieved of his duties as of 5 minutes after the Stanford game... Waiting on the inevitable only makes the climb that much harder/longer...Let someone else take over last three games and bring in a whole new staff 5 minutes after Utah game

    Jon is a good man and a great Buff. Regardless, he should be fired -- the sooner the better.

    He needs to be let go. If he had some successful head coaching history to lean on, I would be more open to coordinator changes, but I think he is part of the problem. I hope for great success for him in future endeavors and appreciate his contributions to our program.

    Jon should consider this as an opportunity to leave while he still has respect from the Buff faithful. I fear that if he sticks around for another year, he will become the next Dan Hawkins- hated, loathed, and will be more remembered for his failures as a coach instead of his legacy as a Buff football player.

    Not even a question, fire him at the end of the season on the 23rd.

    I love Jon. Love his devotion to the Buffs and tradition. But the bottom line is wins, or at least seeing the kids get better, and we are accelerating to terminal speed in the downward direction. Fire.

    Too late. Also, does it even matter? I don't see the AD firing him under any circumstances

    Over 90% in favor, not at all surprising. Now if you put this poll question to the CU administration the results would be the complete opposite.

    Fire him immediately. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars. Just end it NOW.

    Will the no people explain why? This isn't a poll if you think he will actually be fired, this is what you want.
