    I really think with this hire it is important to not try and appease the outspoken minority of Boulderites and faculty members that don't give a damn about football anyways. I feel like since the scandal that wasn't, these people have dictated the AD's moves and we see the results.

    I know they would hate a guy like Petrino but he might be what is best for the program. I'm not advocating that we hire Petrino. I would still like them to look at all the options. But I would like all the options to actually be options.

    +1. Too many cooks in the kitchen at CU and very few believe what's best for football should be the primary concern.

    And that is why I think football at CU is done. I think we will be better than the last few years, hopefully, but constantly ranking in the top 25 is a thing of the past.

    Agreed. I'd love to see Tressel or Petrino hired but no way can I imagine this university "hurting their image" as they would call it by hiring a coach like these guys with a scandalous history. I'm still amazed that they made the decision to let Embree go after only 2 seasons.

    Tressel is not getting a BCS job until the 2017 season. Period.

    This is the point where leadership, ie Benson & DiStefano, give Bohn the blank check and turn around and tell the faculty that doing it their way has cost the University a lot in donations etc. Oh and that Cal and the other academic conference peers dont place similar restrictions on their programs so why should we?

    I would hope thats what happened this time.
