He's 98-69 in 13 seasons at the AFA.Troy Calhoun? Thoughts?
I'm a no on Calhoun too.He's 98-69 in 13 seasons at the AFA.
He's frustrated with the academy being in the MW and floated the idea of the program being an Independent last year.
He's a really good football coach.
He's very tightly wound and not warm/fuzzy. More stick than carrot.
Not media friendly, totally lacks a bull**** gene.
Would have very little patience with PR/Donor/Community stuff and zero patience with prima donna players.
Has been way outside of big time recruiting forever.
So all in all a No, high risk/high reward, but it would be fun (for me anyway) to see it play out. I'd like to see what he'd do with CU's talent. But NO.
I was gonna ignore because of how stupid this argument was but you kept going. I can promise you that Kap had absolutely zero clue that Tucker was going to take this job. He was as shocked as every other coach in the room when they all found out. Whether he goes with him to Michigan State is a different story but he felt pretty burned by this.You dont think people talk? You think the HC of MSU just quit and nobody knew it was coming. They knew he was gone. They knew their target. They paid the money and got MfT. You really think all this happened in 24 hours?
What could he possibly have to drink about working for CU?The more I think about it if EB, passes and RG doesn't hire Chev the idea of Sarkisian is starting to grow on me. He has HC experience at 2 Pac-12 schools, OC in the NFL and most importantly known as a great recruiter. The big knock is the alcoholism.
I’m on board.The more I think about it if EB, passes and RG doesn't hire Chev the idea of Sarkisian is starting to grow on me. He has HC experience at 2 Pac-12 schools, OC in the NFL and most importantly known as a great recruiter. The big knock is the alcoholism.
At this point in the carousel (when it stopped spinning and the guy running the carousel left 2 ****in weeks ago) pretty much any hire CU takes at this point is going to be an “experiment”My "No" is a little reluctant, but I just don't think that CU can run an experiment with this next hire.....
I think the end of the Embree era was probably worse, it seemed like the program had been burned to the ground, especially because of how angry the CU media people were at the administration.I’ve literally never felt this defeated and deflated as a CU fan and that’s saying a lot
Trust me, there's a lot of players that don't want Chev, you just see the vocal ones wanting himWhen all of the players want Chev to be the coach and retaining as many of the recruits as possible (who were burned by the last coach) I don’t think hiring a guy who flamed out in his last job because of an alcohol problem.
Colorado needs someone who can instill confidence and a sense of stability after what transpired.
There’s a lot of responsibility and stress placed on a head coach of a major program, so it’s only natural that a lot of people will wonder in the back of their minds if it could get to him and he might relapse.
I would be fine with him as a coordinator but as the face of the program it would make me a little nervous.
• One other name to keep in mind, I’m told, is Ohio State running backs coach Tony Alford. He played college ball at Colorado State and graduated from high school in Colorado Springs. He has been a key member of a lot of top teams and has long been regarded as a really good recruiter.
