I hope CU isn't in the market for a new coach, but if they do, they would do well to consider Sumlin, and dare I say it, McCarney. If you can go .500 at ISU, you have to be doing something right.
This guy does seem like to have some coaching talent. I still several others though. I believe we need someone who can jump in ASAP, therefore someone who is currently out of a job or has the ability to leave right away. That would suck for the losing school, but Bohnhead should look at that factor.
Houston lost to CSU last year
Hmm, well we certainly dont need a continuation of that. :wow:
Houston has an offense that can score more than 17 points a game
Sumlin is basically living off what Art Briles installed at UH...much like Dan Hawkins living off what Houston Nutt and Dirk Kotemier did at BSU before Hawkins was named coach.
We really need a coach who knows how to build programs not simply continue the success of the previous regime.
All a matter of talent. Dude just got there and he's recruiting like a mad man. When he was running the offense at OU, they damn sure never lost to CSU.
Briles was doing pretty well before Sumlin took over though right? The BCS experience helps, but I'm weary of another non-BCS head coach that is just continuing what the previous guy started.
If they hire Sumlin, I hope he stays longer than his last stint here.:huh:
ha ha ha, yeah, I thought about that. Had forgotten he was here for around 8 minutes.
Quite honestly, it'll be hard for us to land a big name coach. We're no longer a power house football program and we can't offer a good enough budget to a top tier coach to bring in quality assistants. If Hawk can't prove himself this year and turn it around and is dropped at the end of the season. It's going to be a long next 3-4 years for Buffs football.
