Re: To those that think...
I do believe that message boards do their damage. Players read these things for sure. Most coaches don't, but "media" folk do and then regurgitate it on their radio shows or newspaper articles or blogs. Then "journalists" with press passes ask coaches the questions "they" have.
But to think that McD felt any pressure from a message board is ludicrous! If it had the impact to make him leave, it would've given CU the same ammunition to never make him an offer. I'm pretty sure that those that make their money hiring and firing coaches have much better insight into their programs with ZERO insight from us.
