  1. He gets the full contract term. They can't pay his salary, no way in hell they'll dig up enough for the buyout. I think he'll win after a bit, and for a while.
  2. I completely agree with you that the MW is far from forward thinking, and when they are they contemplate stupid things. As far as Boise, they did try to be progressive. Boise was bringing conference championships and adding them while TCU and Utah were here would've propelled the conference into the BCS. The MWC tried to get cute and play the BCS with the timing of the Boise addition. They screwed themselves. It was also reported from multiple outlets that the addition of Boise had been initially blocked. The rumor was that it was BYU, but who knows. Anyway, the one time the conference had a plan, they crapped down their leg.
  3. OK. See it your way. You misunderstand one thing though. I couldn't give a shit about CU. Never have. I'm only watching this for the same reason some fan of Middle Tennessee would watch the show. It's big media. No hating here, it's just my observation that things are about to get really stupid in boulder. We'll play them twice in the Deion era. No biggie, we've got enough of our own problems to deal with.
  4. Hmmm. On camera? On camera he told his old players to stay out of the portal, because players die in the portal. Then he addressed his new team and invited them to go into the portal. Meanwhile, he also told them that there would be a new standard of discipline in meetings including no hoodies and no earrings. He made this statement in a hoodie and two ears dripping with jewelry while his son (the chosen QB) sat slouched in a chair in a hoodie. Then he showed up late to be introduced at a CU BB game in a hoodie, sunglasses, and diamonds. On camera, I'd say he's looking like a fraud. But he'll recruit very well and because of that he'll turn around a program that pretty much any good recruiter could turn around, he'll make some $$, and he'll move on. Not the positive influence I think a lot of players parents are looking for. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, CU just ponied up the credit card to bring in coach Prime and are admittedly looking for a way to pay that credit card bill. They'll be better on the field. It remains to be seen what the program turns into.
  5. It won't surprise me a bit if Prime blows out over 40 players. That's irrelevant though. Norvell had 40 (or about that) that he didn't want in his program. CU's numbers will reflect how many CU players he is happy with. Apples and oranges. As for 3-8, we'll see. He has shown he can outtalent an entire level of football with his recruiting. He hasn't shown that he can outcoach them. Maybe he can, but he hasn't shown that yet.
  6. Exactly. No one is ever found innocent in court. The very basis of our law is that everyone is presumed to be innocent until proven otherwise. No one should ever have to prove their innocence, the accuser has to prove guilt. That's what separates us from Venezuela and China.
  7. You’ll get nothing and like it. A good shot at Bryant and New Mexico. That’s about all I can see for’23. Who’s the 12th game?
  8. You’ll get it. Supplier is still out. You want a UNR helmet? I’ll order that tonight.
  9. If history is any indication, this thread will still be rolling in 2025.
  10. Disagree. Freaking morons for firing a coach that was on the upward trajectory without a better option already lined up.
  11. An excellent summary. The NMSU player didn't break the law, other than perhaps a campus ban on handguns, I don't know those particulars. All he broke was curfew and the concept of good decision making. It is an incredibly tragic situation.
  12. Yeah, with SEC talent. He doesn't have that anymore.
  13. You know why they always seem to be building new high schools? Because there are more kids. The HS player pool isn't shrinking. The number of D1 prospects is only expanding. G5's will never keep up with the P5's, but then again we never have. What the G5's can get is their fair share of good HS players, and the higher rated kids from the P5 that were overrated, didn't get to play, and move down a level. A smart G5 coach can do just fine in the portal by picking up that 4* that turned out to be a high 3* after all.
  14. Nah, that's a pretty typical new coach speech. Doing it in public was definitely low class. He comin'.
  15. I'm not sold on Deion the coach. I'd take his recruiting class in a heartbeat though.
  16. Yes. I caught that. Snake oil. Boulder is going to be fun to watch for a while. He also never said "Go Buff's", or "I'm happy to be here", or any of the usual coach speak for "I can't wait to be a buff". Just "they wouldn't take no for an answer" and "I'm comin'". He picked the right place to hold a shit show, they're real good at it down there.
  17. Yeah, I get that. My point was just that we don't know the full impact of it yet. The higher profile guys have either announced or got the word out. I'm betting that there's tons of backups thinking they can play somewhere else that will enter without the fanfare. So many of these kids are going to end up without a scholarship. Deion Sanders when he announced to his team that he was going to CU cautioned them to stay out of the portal. That they'd die in the portal. I think we're going to see a lot of mistakes tomorrow. It's been open for FCS for a little while. A week ago there were over 600 FCS players in the portal. Toss in the FBS contingent tomorrow and it's going to be a melee.
  18. Nobody has hit the portal yet. Many have stated their intentions, but it can't be actually entered until tomorrow. It's going to blow up fast, and I suspect we'll see a lot of unexpected names from every team. Sadly, about 70% of those kids will be making a huge mistake.
