Yeah that fake was awful. Lot of people all on tucker who didn't know who he was 3 days ago.
I have almost zero concerns with MT as a hire. My concern is that he gets to CU, watches 24 hours of film and wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat screaming "WTF have I done!" Seriously, if the guy knows what he's getting into culturally and talent wise it's all good.
Good. They scored 28 points on a defense full of future nfl draft picks, despite their head coach’s erratic decisions.
No groupthink here. Think he’s a solid hire. The end.
So your concern is that his expectations of a football team may be too high? I can live with that.
Jeebus. I just checked in to see if there was an update and people are still up in arms about Tucker?
Get over it folks. He’s gonna be the HC of our Buffs. I for one will be fully supporting him and our Buffs to take the next step and winning some football games.
RG knows what he is doing. Let’s get behind this hire and the program.
Doesn’t make sense here because...? It doesn’t fit our personnel? Outside of a couple guys, our personnel needs to be turned over quickly. FWIW, doesn’t seem like our personnel fits Chev’s offense either.
Also, I’d gladly take the offense that put up the most points against Bama this year.
People think he's going to recruit cu like georgia, not happening. But it has to be better than mm and his staff.
Lol thanks. I had to give him a little **** since he brought that up awhile ago. It’s all in fun, no hard feelings @ahoelsken just giving you a hard time. I do think your rationale here is a little insane but that’s your prerogative.
If he's hiring a guy based on whether or not they'll let Chev stay in his role, I'd question that.
I think it’s more that he has the personality and ability to be a closer to convince kids to choose him over other very good programs. Nobody believes he will recruit like Georgia but we also don’t know that he won’t.
And you know that for sure?
I've been pretty clear for the last few days that I dont think Tucker makes sense here.
That's what the post piece on Mel Tucker said.
The DP is not to be trusted, ever. They employ Kiszla for Christ sake.
I don't expect him to recruit like Georgia, but I do expect him to be around 20th to 25th in recruiting rankings.
No, people don’t think that. But people think that he’s a good recruiter who has first hand experience with programs who are recruiting machines and therefore knows how important it is or should at the very least realise how advantageous it can be. That’s why people think and hope he will put an emphasis on recruiting like we probably haven’t seen before and like even @Duff Man could’ve only dreamed of seeing at CU.
Isn't that the place that let's Matt Stephens run their sports page? So, garbage then
PAHI is really worried about not having CU football as a punching bag.
I think it t is kind of nice to have a completely fresh face on the scene here. Maybe he will unmask the fact that everyone makes all kinds of excuses for why CU can't be good, and most of this excuses are bull****.
Love the hire!
Buffs are better today than yesterday just because of Coach Tucker
Everyone needs to get on board and stop the subtle racist or other just stupid takes, cause these players will play hard for Coach Tucker (The Marshmallow man is gone, sorry)
WE now need to all push the same direction and give maximum effort towards supporting the staff and the team, especially with attendance
We CAN win the PAC12 within the next 1-3 years with this staff, most of this roster, and a few more solid players
Welcome to Boulder Coach Tucker
Glad to have you
It doesn’t say to keep him in his role as play caller. Just keep him on the staff. Chev is a solid recruiter and I still think an asset in the right capacity.
Coaching changes/searches always exposes the idots here
I think that’s an excellent idea if RG is encouraging the new coach to keep Chiaverini in his current role as recruiting coordinator. He knows our current recruits and is holding the class together. He knows California and Texas and will keep connections they’ve built up the last 3 years. As a OC though? That I’m not so sure of. I think he needs to be a position coach again.
Not exactly Nik. My concern is that he understands how different CU is going to be institutional and culturally from UGS, tOSU, or the NFL. This guy is a real football coach and may have to get used to the "walking on eggshells" stuff that comes along with the CU program. Regardless, I think he'll always have lots of options, even after hiring on here, and that will not only be good for him but also sobering for the CU power culture. I wish him all the best and think that he's potentially a great hire. I've got to say though, if CU pulls a Tumpkin type of thing on a guy of this caliber he has the resume and the resources to walk within 30 days.
Gotcha. More of a concern that CU won't be able to get out of its own way and allow the guy to be a football coach.
All I can say to that is: in Rick George I trust.
Man, people worry too damn much.
