    Make sure not send your kids to one of the best universities in the world because your shirttail relatives live in a different city in the same state! have fun, we'll miss ya.

    Dude. It’s totally okay to have a differing opinion. If you don’t think Mel Tucker is the guy that’s fine, you’re entitled to that opinion. I just don’t think saying Georgia’s performance today on defense is a good reason for why you don’t like him. I understand some
    of your concerns but we’re never going to find the perfect candidate in every single way.

    I've felt bad for CU football since the fake scandal.

    I love CU football and have since the Eddie Crowder Era. Don't fret Duff, I'll always have the CU administration to kick around as a punching bag.

    You are very progressive to be above the group think. You can tell you have a lot of experience out living in the west, you’re a real pioneer in your thinking. #wildwildwest

    I was prepared for Leavitt. The maintenance of a good attitude through the assumption of a negative result. What’s the worst? Leavitt.

    I never thot Holgorsen would take our calls.
    Wells, Day, Lake all have reasons to not come.

    Colorado isn’t a destination . In my state the big high schools play to bigger crowds than Folsom does now. We have helicopters covering games. It is a town event.

    Boulder has so many non football activities. People are fickle. Bandwagoners at best.
    Alumni dollars are fickle too. Community support is tentative

    Tucker knows this going in. And he still is interested.

    Please make us competitive. In the conference hunt each year. Initially. Then we can talk national expectations. Baby steps. We so used to mediocrity. Dazzle us with excellence.

    This is 100% conjecture on your part with absolutely nothing but an opinion that exists solely in your head to support it.

    I still love this hire. We didn't settle for a G5 coach or an underqualified coach. I don't care if Tucker stays only two years like Urban Meyer did at Utah...you'd be more likely to find an unicorn than an Ute fan that wishes Meyer didn't come in the first place. If Tucker wants to stay in Boulder long term, great!

    What I'm looking for is is strong recruiting and establishing a hard nosed mentality that will win us conference championships.

    Time for a Kool aid run and resistance will mean forced feeding of at least five plates of Casa Bonita followed by a few waterfall dives.

    Nobody cares about your backwater Oklahoma town that for sure hasn’t drawn 50,000 for a game like the Buffs did this year.

    I’m originally from Oklahoma, played high school ball there including a 6A state title and still have a bunch of family and friends there and I keep an eye on the football there as it’s familiar. What the **** stadium in Oklahoma high school holds 50k+??

    Ah the last vestige of someone increasingly alone in their opinion. Flat-earthers can probably relate to your plight.

    It’s like trying to appease my 5 year old. “I didn’t want my ice cream cold!”

    Saying groupthink isn't a great argument. It does point out that you can't articulate why the group is wrong tho. If you weren't so bad at coming up with reasons why the hire is bad, maybe you wouldn't be so lonely in your corner with your equally inarticulate friends.

    I'm so excited I can't stand it. Shame we have to wait 9 months before Coach Unicorn Tucker is on the sidelines.

    In speaking with a very enthusiastic dawg fan at Moes BBQ in Vail yesterday, he was very very pro-Tucker and said we were getting a great coach. He also kept barking, so tifwiw.

    Saban's just in on the groupthink.

    Chalk it up to battered fan syndrome.

    I think any criticisms of this hire are nitpicking. There’s no sure fire can’t miss hire. Any time you make a coaching change, you’re taking a risk. That’s unavoidable. That said, Tucker’s experience mitigates most of those risks.

    This is a good hire. Time will tell if it will work out, but given the options and the trajectory of the CU program, RG did very well.
