    Obviously, it is hard to "lose" an intro press conference... but I think it is pretty clear why he was hired.

    This is not a man afraid to risk it and lose. Massive balls to put it out there like that and then immediately have to back his words up. I believe he will.

    "We're going live tough, eat tough, practice tough. It's going to be a part of our culture. The rest of the conference has no bearing on what we're going to be."

    "There's no choice, if you want to play this game, you gotta be tough, you gotta be physical"

    I'm hooked.

    Matt Stephens asking if Tucker is going to abandon the West for Recruiting. What kind of question is that?

    he is asking the question to build a hit piece on the hiring of Tucker. If yes, "OMG CU ABANDONING ITS RECRUITING PIPELINES." If no, "TUCKER KEEPS PIPELINES TO WHiCH HE HAS NO CoNNECTION>"

    We want guys that can win one-on-one, who can win their box. It takes talent to identify talent.

    I think it's interesting how he keeps calling recruiting marketing.

    Based on the two times he's mentioned coaches, sounds like we won't see assistant coach movement until after this weekend, but then we should see it wrap up quick.

    well, that was a good presser. me happy, oh so happy. happy, happy, happy.

    the shift is ****ing awesome: we aren't rebuilding. we're going to compete for championships from recruiting, to preparation, to execution. we're ready to rejoin our rightful place in the bigs. i don't know if Coach Tucker will be here 3 years or 20, but,, right now, this minute, he seems like the right guy at the right time and place.

    we're gonna win.

    The post spends just as much time covering the Nubs as they do us.
