As I've said, I'm trusting RG. But I do feel like this year's team regressed. More patience required along with some staff changes? It's not exciting. It's hard to defend the record or the trajectory. And it's a huge risk with so much of the future hinging on a good 2016 season resulting in a great 2017 recruiting class. If RG decides to take that risk, I'll be along for the ride and be supportive. I'm not emotionally invested in MacIntyre. Seems like a good guy and a solid football coach who has a plan. But not everyone is able to successfully take what they did at smaller programs and make it happen on a bigger stage. There's evidence of this all over the place. Look at Wyoming and how they're doing with maybe the best 1-AA coach ever at the helm. Look at Texas where they've got a HC who quickly turned around a dumpster fire at Louisville. Look at Nick Saban and Lou Holtz and Steve Spurrier not being able to make it happen on the NFL level. Very few coaches, no matter how good they might be, will be successful in every coaching situation. What does that mean for CU, though? Frankly, I don't think I want to take a risk on a coordinator or on a head coach who has been successful on a smaller stage or on a failed NFL coach. Sure, all those things have worked. All those things have also failed. If RG decides to risk a coaching change, he's got to make an investment in someone who mitigates the current risk while driving fan excitement. If Les Miles is available, that's a no-brainer. You pull the trigger. Same thing if any highly successful P5 coach wants out of his current situation and is interested in CU. I'd even go so far as to look at coaches who had a ton of success and are not in a job right now. Butch Davis? I'd hire him in a heartbeat. Greg Schiano? Welcome to Boulder. Jim Tressel? I'd buy and donate a team tattoo shop. Bo Pelini? My wife is allowed to put Carl on her "Hall Pass" list. Short of someone like that, though, I think we stay the course another year and see what happens.
