LMAO!  Seriously?

Georgia fans down here have been talking about bringing Bobo back home. They want him running the offense again.

Our coaching search has wyo fans riled up. You guys can relax, we're not really going for Urban Meyer. Sources tell me we're looking at Don Shula and Vince Lombardi

Well according to the inside scoop from a very reputable CSU source (I think he has 30 CSU followers!!) Urban Meyer is a done deal!

So what do you think? Is Urban Meyer a potential candidate to take the job? What would his contract look like? Big12 invite in 2.5 years with a $10 million bonus backed by bonds from Canvas Credit Union?

Inquiring minds want to know!!

Urban Meyer to CSU ain't happening.  Period, end of story.  All the claims to the contrary appear to just be pot-stirring to me.  Just folks riling up Pokes.

However, I am pretty sure that he is included in the folks advising on the search.    I'd be very happy if I could present that as a fact and not just a likely probability.  He basically started his coaching career at CSU and still has a lot of ties to the town and university.  Either way, Joe Parker has made it clear that anonymity in the search is a very high priority.  I'm enjoying the speculation, but in fact we won't know anything until it's announced.  I hope I like the announcement.

Urban Meyer may not be our next coach but he is consulting.

Well I'll just reiterate what Swoll and Headbutt said. He likes CSU and wants to help us find the right guy. He has been through the ranks from CSU to Bowling Green to an MWC Utah to Florida to Ohio State so he has a good idea of what type of coach is appropriate for CSU and has a lot of connections to bring them in. His coaching tree includes Tony Alford and Billy Gonzales who are both former Rams so you have to assume they're included. Anyone else, who knows? At least that's probably the most rational explanation of him being here. It's all speculation. As much as the private i's at Ramnation may try, and as entertaining as conspiracy theories can be, nobody knows whats going on. Parker is pretty good at keeping things quite over at the McGraw Center.

Joe wasnt at the basketball game last night.  I had hoped I would be able to show him my support.

The signs are pointing in a direction that CSU has already found their next coach.  I dont think they’re messing around.

Then I guess the question is do you think they're moving too quickly? I don't know so honest question. This whole deal has changed JP from being "lean in" to the guy who negotiated a hell of a deal. We didn't even know if Bobo was going to be fired or if Joe was even going to stick around. Pretty crazy 24 hours.

Parting with Bobo was a done deal. Losing to AFA sealed that decision. Joe has been pursuing this new head coach track for more than a few days.  Urban Meyer didnt just show up in Fort Collins out of the blue.  These meetings were scheduled once the decision was made on Bobo.  And they are on record as wanting to move fast because of the December 18 signing date. Joe is smart and wouldn’t set himself up for failure to meet that goal.

24 hours ago I would have wondered how smart he was. Today, I'll let him do his job lol

So if Urban is involved in the search does that mean its Tony Alford's job at this point? I think that would be a great hire for them.

Another source has indicated they met with Sonny Lubbick over the weekend. He says the old coaching fires are starting to burn again.

How would that be different from Bobo? A hot shot  position coach (not even an OC) with no HC experience? Yeah, rams, go for it!

He's the associate HC(or at least was for Urban). I think he would be a good pick for them so I hope they go elsewhere.

CSU should strongly reconsider Mike Bobo for the open head coaching position.  He has a proven track record of taking CSU to 3 bowl games when few coaches would be able to achieve that level of success there.
