Ringo and @footballscoop expect it to be George.
That would be a positive development
wow. That's actually pretty fast compared to the floated timeline.
That was quicker than I thought. Good news maybe. I thought there was a reasonable chance this would go until the fall as candidate after candidate told DUI to take a hike.
Dammit Ringo, this better be accurate scooooooooooooop
Oh I wanted Ceal to be named just so I could witness the board meltdown.
I'd block your IP just so you couldnt watch.
If it is George, my hope is that from being so successful in the business world and knowing what it takes to build a profitable organization that by he will be able to tell PD and BB to shove it with their boneheaded ideas and let him run his department.
PS if this turns out to be false like the Butch Jones smoke or just an announcement to update a timetable for a future announcement then everyone who let this leak today in the first place should be banished from the state for life.
Ringo doesn't throw that line out there if he doesn't have it. Probably just doesn't have official confirmation to go to print.
I think Ringo would be fired for a second huge leak that was false.
confirmed via CU:
George >>> Bohn This seems like a good day for CU athletics.
Am I the only one who thinks this is a GREAT hire? This has Benson's fingers all over it IMO
So you're saying this is our chance to get rid-
Ahhhhh screw it. Welcome, Rick! Now net us some dough!
Looks like a good hire on paper. Could he be the chosen one? If Benson is serious about making athletics the "Front Porch of the University" this is probably a good step in that direction.
Hoping that his ties to Mac, don't come back to bite us.
I agree, great hire. Now just give him resources.
Love that he was a part of CU's peak days of success. He'll be passionate to bring it back.
There was a lot of concern that DiStefano was going to bring in a "yes man". I guess this puts some of that speculation to bed. Let HCMM worry about the product on the field and let George worry about getting us some damn money. Are there any places to make microdonations to CU athletics? Until I hit the powerball, micro is gonna have to do.

That worked out with Embree didn't it. I am cautiously optimistic about this hire, but that whole "being part of the glory days" b.s. doesn't make me feel any better after the past 2 seasons.
This would be a positive hire. Good news out of Boulder
Do you think anyone has told Ceal and the search committee yet?
My budget can only support nanodonations.
I'm pretty excited about the hire. I hope he negotiated (with Benson) a long leash and plenty of resources before he took the job.
I hope not. I hope she stays busy looking. Should keep her mouth shut.
