Why shouldn't we hire within the program and go with Chris Ash? Norm Chow wouldnt leave the NFL for all the money in the world. Does anybody think Chuck Long could be bought back to this great state? Maybe Mark Farley could get us turned around, but I'm not sure.
Let's all be realistic here. You may not have heard of them but these guys are nails:
1. Frank Beamer
2. Urban Meyer
3. Kirk Ferentz (Even though he is gay)
4. Pete Carrol
5. Steve Spurrier
6. Tommy Tuberville
7. Charlie Weis
8. Bobby Stoops
9. Rush Propst
10. Frank Beamer's Goiter
And I would trade them all for UT's budget.
Gimmee a break. Hiring is a crap shoot unless you can outbid. remeber when we all that Ferentz was a mistake?
Wow!!!! With the obvious knowledge of football coaching that you posess, never let me question you again. Actually there is just one thing that I want to know, are you related to Dan directly??? or is it a staff member???
Might want to take a look at that "bad" season K-State is having. Is it bad because they struggled to beat a 1-AA team? So did we, and if you look at their record they are 4-2 (1-1), we are 3-3 (0-2). Hmm, they are having a bad season! And I'm pretty sure Colorado's troubles started way before Dan Hawkins was hired, they talked about firing Barnett for 3 years and dug a hole for themselves, I don't want us to dig back into the hole Coach Mac got us out of.
They have not played the schedule we have yet. Don't start saying this record is this. When they haven't played the teams we have played. Wait till the end of season and see what happens to KState. They might not win another game the rest of the year. Maybe one more.
Uh... why would Pelini leave OK to be a coordinator at ISU?? There's no way they could promise him a head job. That'd never fly. It'd have to be fire Mac and bring Pelini in as HC. I don't know what to think of him as a coach - only coached one game (NU's bowl game a few years back)
