    GC new OL Coach....

    GC's new OL coach learned how to leave his former school/players with a little more class than GC did.

    Emotional farewell: CU assistant Grimes heading to Auburn : College Football : The Rocky Mountain News

    Hope the link works.

    I was pulling for McFarland to get the job. Hopefully he lands on his feet somewhere.

    Re: GC new OL Coach....

    Might want to change the title of the thread. Makes it sound like GC is our new OL coach.

    I'm sure McFarland was his safety net. Too bad because RM is a good guy and an ok coach IMO.

    Does McFarland want to move to Colorado?

    Nothing like taking the OLine coach from a school who had a terrible offensive line this past year.

    CU was hit very hard this year with injuries on the OL. Last year they had some real beasts on the OL and expect to be good again next year. Impressive hire in my judgement.

    Re: GC new OL Coach....

    Didn't Chizik say that McFarland was the best offensive line coach in the country?

    I thought I'd remembered him saying this. Maybe he said "one of the best OL coaches in the country." Apparently Grimes is better.

    Chizik says a lot of things. Like this, for example:

    "Anybody who knows myself, my wife, my family, they know that we are firmly entrenched here in Ames. We love this community."
    - Gene Chizik, Nov. 10, 2008


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Perhaps this explains the poop eatin' grin that I saw Gene had on his face when he left Folsom Field in November.

    Well, sometimes schools hire people even after terrible years/careers. For example, Auburn hired Gene Chizik.

    Re: GC new OL Coach....

    Chiz/Bolt's lame defense made that OL look like the New York Football Giants. That qb looked like Joe Montana against us. Was Chiz conspiring in resume pumping??? Hell, he looked like the best Offensive line coach in the history of college or pro football against us. I think Chiz knew he was gone at that point. His whole pre-game pep talk was not genuine.

    Not sure why he thinks he has more job security at Auburn. Not sure if Hawkins is on the hotseat but chizik is and if he doesn't win 10 games and beat Alabama, they will all bee out on their butts.
