  1. We give them our HC and QB and they send over their HC's QB son... weird, but ok, let's see how he does. Interesting signing at the least. Pro-style QB.
  2. I hear that the conference rooms at the new Westin Hotel at Denver International Airport are really nice.
  3. Think CU'd be interested in a really nice guy from Georgia? Comes with some coaching experience.
  4. I doubt it, but I know more than a few alums that would love it to happen.
  5. I was just about to respond with this. Forget about the last play of the game. It shouldn't have come down to that. Throw 2 Pick 6s to a team whose offense has sputtered and you don't win. Our offensive line is offensive; I have no idea how TJ Roundtree even gets allowed in the stadium let alone into the locker room... even worse starting. If it weren't for the cold and wind, I'd bet that USU wipes Sonny Lubick Field with the tears of CSU's defense; the last USU touchdown shows exactly how well the defense reads plays. It's time to close shop. Time to fire the Strength and Conditioning coach; our lines were pushed around like little children. We have no bowl game to get extra practices so spring practices need to be all about fundamentals: Reading plays. TACKLING. TACKLING. More tackling. Back to the basics! I still don't think it is time to get rid of Bobo. This was going to be a season of growing pains and if we beat AF next week my 4-8 prediction will come to fruition (sadly). New staff. young team. This happens next year? Fire the lot of them.
  6. I know. That was also one of my concerns. After Ansley's antics, I wonder if there really was a 2nd and 3rd option or if they just went with a dart and a map.
  7. I hope that's the case. Time will tell.
  8. I'll admit that I wasn't a fan of Jancek's hiring (lots of wild rumors swirled around him, mostly just wild rumors) and I detested Marty English's defense and his apparent coaching. I'm not sure what to make of Jancek now. Like I've said before, Jancek has a lot of rebuilding to do. There was a total lack of fundamentals exhibited under English's defense (missed assignments, poor routes in coverage, missed blocks, poor tackling skills, etc. etc. etc.). However, I didn't really see any improvement this year under the new defensive crew. Leaves me wondering if Jancek is one of those coaches that is "good" because their predecessor left behind solid pieces rather than a "good" coach of player no matter the talent. Dave Johnson came over from Ohio to be our new OL coach and running game coordinator. CSU did lose a number of starters on the OL, but watching players like TJ Roundtree amble around the field like a lost little lamb doesn't instill faith in the length of Johnson's tenure. This year our OL and run game was an unmitigated mess--CSU will say it is because of new players and new schemes, but, again, these are kids that should have some fundamentals ingrained in them from club/HS ball, but some of these kids look like they've never played the game before out there. I've said all along to the BoboHas2GoGo crowd to give him this year with the new staff. There were going to be growing pains. However, growing pains doesn't always mean turning the team into a walking fiasco.
  9. Couple new assistants? This is his second crew of assistants. He basically cleaned house at the end of last season. I get that fixing Marty English's reign of terror is no easy task, but Jancek's defense seems like it got slightly worse. A new special teams coach, and that aspect of the game is not that great. How many more new assistants does Bobo need to right the ship?
  10. I'm not a throw Parker under the bus guy. Though I don't follow b-ball at all (college or professional) I do think that Medved was the perfect hire culture-wise for CSU. I know that Eustachy wasn't Parker's hiring, but it took so long for Parker to step up in a seemingly awful situation to finally end the Eustachy era. That's why I'm not sure that he'll bite the bullet, admit his fault, and try to fix it. Whatever that solution happens to be. I agree to the wait and see. While fans watch the recruiting months, future players watch the season. If I'm a player, I'm not really interested in looking all too hard at CSU right now no matter the platitudes they throw while visiting me at my house. 7-6, 7-6, 7-6 with all bowl losses (and hardly a win against "rivals") and then to go no better than 4-8. This doesn't yell, "Come play for us in our new shiny stadium!" No matter how Bobo tries to spin his health, new staff, etc. I said it last year watching Marty English's wretched defense and I'll say it this year with both sides of the ball: How can kids who supposedly learned the fundamentals of football in club and high school completely lose those fundamentals playing for Mike Bobo?
  11. 5.5 million is not chump change just to say goodbye. I can't see Joe Parker admitting he screwed up this one; it took him forever to admit the b-ball program was a mess. And I don't see a donor willing to pay this out, either. I agree that Bobo is a good OC and that he'll be back in charge of a quality offense just as fast as he's let go by CSU. As to recruiting, I think I saw somewhere that there are 3 commitments right now. As the team falters, as the coaches yell and scream and appearances are that the team has quit on the coaches, I don't see that number rising anytime soon so firing Bobo now flat out, at the end of the season, giving him the word and then doing so on 1/1/19 really won't matter to this recruiting class. I just don't see recruits clamoring to join the mess that is CSU. The new coach, if there is to be one, will just have to work with the smoking wreckage left behind, and hope to motivate them into a .500 team so they can get their recruits the next year.
  12. I'd say congrats to Wyoming for the win, but CSU never really came out to play. So, I guess, sorry for not making a sport of it and enjoy the boot for another year.
