    Even with all the upheaval in the Big East, is that really a better job than Cincinnatti?

    I'm sure it pays better. Plus, Boulder > Cincinatti.

    He's doing pretty well there though, seems like he could hold out for better offers considering his predecessors went on to Michigan State and Notre Dame, respectively. Colorado seems like a recipe for having a couple lousy seasons upfront, ruining your reputation, and then getting fired.

    Well we will find out what kind of coach he really is. Had a pretty good thing going at Cincinnati when he was named coach. Colorado is a whole new ball game, pretty much starting from nothing.

    CU really wanted to make a grand entrance into the Pac 12 but that didn't happen. Even here in Colorado hardly anybody is talking about the Buffs. They need a big-time hire to kickstart excitement in the team. That is much easier said than done. With 3 SEC head coaching jobs open, I think the big names will be looking there rather than Boulder.

    My bad, there are only two SEC HC jobs open right now since Mark Stoops was hired in Kentucky.

    almost makes you feel bad for cinci. get to bcs, and coach bolts. success starts to build again and coach bolts. at least with dmac and now cpr, we have landed coaches who want to be here.

    of course, who knows if cpr would take the bait if/when we have the elusive "next step" season.

    Perhaps he just likes the hippie lettuce.

    I would beg to differ that no one is talking about The Buffs. The CU story dominated the sports talk radio all week last week on three different sports talk radio stations in Denver which is unheard of while the Broncos were on a 6 game winning streak. Not to mention Paige and Kizla have both written on the topic.

    Never been to Boulder, but I spent a week in Cincy. It's a pretty awesome city.

    I would have to imagine this is more a reflection on the Big East than anything.

    As others have said, I think he could hold out for a much better job. CU has become a place where coaches go to die. See: Hawkins, Dan; Barnett, Gary


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Really?!


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
