Not surprising given the way the year went. He did more for that program than any other coach ever has. I don't think he wanted to be remembered this way and he will not. To think Miami was very interested in hiring him.
about time. too bad it had to end this way.
im no SL worshiper and the way the denver media sucks his ****, makes me sick but i will say this.
he was a hell of a coach. he did things the right way. he may have said a bad word or two during his time in fort fun but, by in large, i think he is a good man.
he did a hell of a lot for the pigskin program in fort fun. in a way, that has made colorado (the state) football better.
i wish him the best. i have no hard feelings against the man.
the denver media can still suck my ballz though...
I never liked sonny or his style of ball. But he brought CSU out of the cellar for a couple of years. gotta respect that.
I thought he retired about 4 years ago?
he's a good man, but he stayed loyal to some of his assitants when he should have said, 'late'...
I'm just pissed Hawk won't be putting a half-hundred on his clown ass..
Your so classy.
One week its doom and gloom, the next he's pumping sunshine up all of our asses :smile2:
That's our jimmyboy!
I think there is a news conference sat am??
I wonder if he knows there is medication out there to even out those mood swings?:wink2:
You heard it here first baby!!!
I like and respect SL. I remember some of those years when CU, CSU, and AFA all went to bowl games, their success was good for the state's college football image. I will miss him and hope the Rams can find someone to help rebuild their program. A good CSU program along with an excellent Buffs program keeps that game on national TV so I can continue to watch it
As much as Sonny's been a pain in our asses for the last 10 years or so, I have to give him credit for building that program up to respectability.
Whoever they hire next will probably a down grade, I don't see how any coach will want to play for a program who so willingly forced out THE MAN THEY NAMED THEIR FIELD AFTER.
Good show, Eric...Good show
But seriously though, how do you follow that act? If Smilin' Sonny "retires" then it would have to be one of his kids that takes his place. They don't have the money to hire someone else (Cally? Fran? Barnett? hahahahahaha).
I have to admit that he made CSU a pain in the ass to us and brought the program up to snuff for the most part. Unless they do something drastic, I only see our in-state recruiting get better and CSU will be relegated to the dumps once again. As hard as it is for me to admit that, I have to say that's a sad thing for the state. But good for CU since we'll be able to free up a NC game for another good football team (Boise State anyone? That would be a classic game)
