Rice's approach was, "Hey, if you just try and be like me, you'll be great." Turns out people are individuals. Struggled the entire time for Boston and was let go or traded away. But once he got some Billy Beane ball at Oakland his career took off. You have to read the book to truly understand but you probably will get my point. Hagan has his job because of what he did back in the 80s. And the same was true of Bienemy. In their minds they are Colorado football. Afterall, they are responsible for the CU NC. Blue Chip recruits are not going to give more than a second thought about the past. These young guys live in the future. And maybe that is why both Hagan and Bienemy ended up clashing with the two highest rated RB recruits they've had in the last two decades. I don't know but I could see how these legacy hires are a bad idea. Are they true coaches or is it a deal where they're saying, "Just be like me and you'll be great." I have a feeling that is what's going on at CU. Personally since it hasn't worked out with the RBs like we'd hoped, I'd rather see a real coach be brought and see what he can do.
