@Buffsrock85 has been refreshingly great in this thread.
Asshole skin on the other hand...
I don't know about anyone else, but the only thing I think about his race is that it's awesome that 1/3 of the head coaches in the conference and a full half of the coaches in the division are African American.
This will be my last post on All Buffs. But I couldn’t not say something. Who the **** ever made a subtle racist remark?
Oh heck, just football-wise I think that just his style and presence (from what we've heard) is likely worth an extra 2 wins even without much of an immediate talent upgrade. I think the Football Culture he'll bring will be invaluable.
@Buffsrock85 and I seem to have found a nice equilibrium. I like it.
Lol I have my moments.
That's where I'm at. I think if he brings in the right staff that that impact on the record lays a foundation for where it goes as he starts bringing in Top 25 classes.
Yeah I decided to not be a dick as much.
We’re all Buffs and I think we forget that. Tuck em up.
BTW, for those not enamored with the hire, this board rarely gives a free pass. If Tucker is not elevating recruiting next spring, no one will be shy about voicing criticism. Same if there are questionable coaching staff hires.
we're going to be awesome assuming this hire goes through. those of you who think otherwise, whatever. deed appears to be done. you can jump in, jump out, or **** off. UNICORNS ain't got no time for doubt. ... too busy winning.
I'll second that. I'm not sure I've ever seen a more toxic environment, it's kind of shocking that it's allowed to continue. This place could be so much better.
Remember that time you predicted a bowl game for the 2012 season? Dip****.
I think I might just dig in on this one and put myself 100% behind Tucker no matter where the groupthink might go. I'm just so damn supportive of the direction for the program to go with leadership, recruiting and a big tent background of DC at tOSU, NFL and UGA plus AHC at Bama. It's exactly what I think CU needs. How can I not rise or go down with that ship?
I mean, the recruiting bump should be noticeable in the 2020 class.
I suppose if I squint I can see how someone wouldn't like Tucker.
If you value:
-someone from the region
-prior HC experience
-proven to do more with less
-able to navigate the stupidity that is CU admin
then I guess Tucker isn't your guy.
For me, I didn't really want prior HC experience. I wanted a young guy. An innovative guy. A monster recruiter.
I don't really know how much to value region. If Tucker just hires a bunch of SEC/ACC guys for his staff and they can't figure out how/where to recruit in our footprint, that's an issue. I don't really know what HC experience gets you beyond knowing the day to day. This guy has been around some of the best guys in the business, hopefully he was paying attention.
Who knows how he'll navigate the CU admin? Are we sure Leavitt or Tedford would've done so effectively either? Maybe CU admin needs a tough mother****er to walk in there and tell them to back up so the big dog can eat?
Hiring a coach is always hit or miss. Some programs with all the money in the world can't stop ****ing it up (Trojan). Maybe we'll be right back here in 4 years, but I bet if he fails, we'll at least be stocking the cupboards for the next guy. Next guy isn't walking into whatever the **** we have at RB. Or the mess on the OL. Or the lack of an entire position so bad that our starter up and quit halfway through the season.
I was surprised by that assessment as well
Oh grow the **** up and check out 247 if you want to see a toxic environment.
Edit: Adam is awesome but those guys have left the reservation.
Tuck Em Up
Tuck Em Up
GO CU !!
After seeing the clips of Tucker getting congratulations today, I think the likelihood of his hire is high.
Tucker was not my first choice. However, I do think he meets the main criteria for an upgrade at the HC level:
1. Great resume
2. Great recruiter
3. Has experienced failure and rebounded
4. His players love and respect him
5. Top level coaches love and respect him
6. Has paid his dues for two decades while learning from some of the best in the business
When macintyre was fired, these are some of the most sensible standards that we discussed. Now that it looks like we’ve got a candidate who meets those criteria very well, I think we should all get behind him.
Yeah I thought we were just having fun? I mean, I know I was having fun with it. I didn’t really see any racist remarks or anything toxic. I dunno, whatever I guess.
is there a pessimism gene going around?
Totally agree. I didn’t have a dog in this race but followed the threads to get an idea of who I liked. I’m trusting RG on this one and I think getting a guy from Georgia will be beneficial. I for one appreciate your mature response to us (likely) hiring the candidate you weren’t pulling for.
People are allowed to have a different opinion. I don't understand why we'd moderate someone saying they don't like the hire.
Come on man, we just hired a coach, and we know nothing about his staff, recruiting strategy, style, etc. Sounds like Bulldog fans hate to see him go, sounds like he has overall positive support from all national writers, sounds like he can recruit and his team doesn't suck.
And you want to blame people here being positive about this hire? I mean, try to have some fun man.
