At what point does CU cross the line between a football school and a basketball school? It feels like we may be really close now. Our hoops team spent the better part of the last season ranked and just landed a very solid recruiting class. Boyle is set up to win a lot of games over the next 4-5 years. Meanwhile, the football team looks, well, ****ty, and doesn’t look to be getting any better anytime soon.
Critiqued line play of past few years. Discussed how our lines have been moving too much horizontally. Type of player he wants to recruit. Also how he came to be here. Actually thought he came across better than the other coaches.
Had a relationship with Cap and Jay Johnson. Jay Johnson was going to bring him to MSU but when Cap followed that opportunity went away. Chev learned about him through Cap / Jay Johnson. He definitely lacks Big5 experience but you can tell he has a strong football mind, is very passionate about this opportunity, and has the demeanor of a good teacher.
The downsides on the hire were apparent to me, but now I at least understand the reasons why. He may surprise people. He has a quirky personality that reminds me a bit of Jim Leavitt. I have no doubt kids will like him.
