    Folks, our RB Coach is one of the top 5 ALL-TIME Option Quarterbacks!!! I think that Coach Hagan and Coach Tucker will have them very coached up. I do not worry about scheme or the fact that we have the better players, I worry about the emotional situation following what we all hope is a big win over the Skers.

    By doing these things, they enable the recruiting coaches to spend more time recruiting.

    They can also review HS film to see if there are players being overlooked (or overhyped).

    I would also be shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out that some of these QC guys have some access to/control over the twitter and other social media accounts of the recruiting coaches.

    Basically, I think they can, and do, have "recruiting" roles that they can take on.

    Hire all the QC coaches you want. I have absolutely zero problem with this.

    Head Coaching Position at Alabama: It practically flies itself.

    Other thing with the QCs for recruiting is that they can recruit on campus without restriction. So if you like seeing official visits to CU for home games during the season without our HC bitching about how it’s a distraction from game prep... then you should frikin love expanded support staff & a full complement of QC coaches.

    Great interview, still reading, but that made me laugh. We aren't a SEC fanbase, but we sure have our quirks. :ROFLMAO:

    Other notes:
    • Big endorsement (and reasoning why) of S&C Drew Wilson;
    • "I don’t talk any about the past seasons or what has happened in the past with them, and I don’t talk about Georgia or Alabama. I try not to bring those schools up, so all my focus is on this team moving forward right now. I think that helps them" - I really like this. Smart self confidence.
    • Recruiting footprint will soon include Utah! and additional color of why so much Georgia and the approach to out of footprint players. (I think Duff will be happy)
    • He's a twizzler guy. WTF? Red Vines bro!

    the utah comment was interesting. there do appear to be a lot more guys coming out of that state than there used to be (same as colorado, i guess). and, when you add in the poly pipeline, maybe we can get some players.

    HCMT seems like such a genuine guy in all his answers and he never makes an excuse or sets himself for an excuse down the road. I like this dude.

    I definitely like him so far, but let’s wait until we see how he handles actual pressure and responds.

    That’s fair, new coaches always seem positive. He seems different in a way and I could be wrong but it just feels that way. Either way, I’m excited for the season!

    Claiming, in Boulder, that foie gras is your favorite appetizer takes a certain degree of confidence.

    Thought it was cool he spent the first half of the USC basketball game in the front row of the student section. He was working the refs pretty well haha.

    I don’t know. It doesn’t look as awful as I’ve read, and might be tasty. 5D440910-2314-48AC-9CAB-58D2098A9A48.jpeg
    Edit for @hokiehead: I’ve had the real thing, above was a joke.

    Damn. If he brings that kind of passion in the stands of a MBB game...what’s he like on the football field?

    The students think CSU is a rival. If you asked the vast majority of us allbuffers who our football rival is, don't the vast majority of us still say the Nubs?

    For a series to be called a rivalry, you need one of two things IMO-a stretch of games that matter for something more than bowl eligibility or vitriol between the two schools in that sport-look at USC in basketball right now. That's a rivalry-Enfield and Tad despise each other, and the players (look at Kin exchanging pleasantries with Rakovic or whoever the hell that was last weekend in Boulder IIRC) have taken the hint. We don't have either with anyone in conference in football right now.
