This may come across as setting bar low but I'm not sure I really want to expect NC every year as the standard for future of Buff football. I think it's realistic and yet challenging given some of the challenges at CU. What are those challenges? High academic standards, don't accept juco transfer credits, don't have a phys ed department, minorities typically don't feel comfortable in Boulder/CU campus...head coach has predecessor's desk, needs to by water for asst. coaches, needs to pull in chairs from different rooms to have enough for linemen in positional mtgs., etc. I think some of these "institutional, poor-leadership" examples can be addressed. But, if THE only way to success is to sell-out to the formula of letting any athlete with a pulse (and criminal record) into the school, spent hundreds of millions of dollars on facilities (50% of which is non-substance "bells/whistles" type stuff, see U of Oregon), create a whole new academic department just so students can handle classes, ie, Phys Ed,...I'm not sure it's worth all that just so that CU can be serious player for NC every year. And, is that formula a guaranteed path to a NC? Once you determine your expectations & standards for success at CU, does that impact who you hire as HC?
