10 Good
  1. Does anyone know who was hired at Newport and Bishop Brossart? They are no longer listed under the open jobs on KHSAA.
  2. Tommy should be praised for leaving them at a steak joint, the last coach left them in a shed. What seems shady to me is that this comes out not even a week after he leaves. A little smear campaign going on to make themselves feel better.
  3. If this is talked about what are his salary requirements for that position? I would have to think that with his experience he wouldnt come cheap, and I don't know of UC could afford Petrino as OC. It would be nice to have him on the sidelines but I think this is completely out of the question. They said they wanted guys who want to be here and I think Petrino would split rather quickly to get a HC job. I know he has character issues but someone will give him the opportunity.
  4. Trent Steelman lives up to best of Army-Navy game, even in defeat - The Washington Post What a young man. Extremely tough way to lose the last game of your playing career, but I have a pretty good feeling he will be successful in whatever he does. Great role model and leader.
  5. I guess you have to start somewhere. lol. I guess the question is: Would you rather be a coaching birth place like UC or a coaching graveyard like UK? That's a no brainer but I would still like to see someone who wants to stay and turn it into something more.
  6. It's about consistency. Yes they get quality coaches to pick up where they left off but to continue building the program and ultimately build a brand I think you need someone that will be here for more than 3 years. It's good right now but in the long run it isn't great. I'm not upset at the current state there in because UC is relevant but the turnover for coaching here hurts the fan base, IMO. It's hard for some convenient fans to become committed fans when there is a new coach every 3rd year. Brian Kelly was getting fan support and bounced butch came in and had a bad first year in some eyes and that hurt attendance. I'm not saying I agree with the logic of the fans because you get behind the team not the coach but fans don't like the uncertainty.
  7. Wow! This would be big for them but it appears like it will be another 3 n Out if that. He wants out of Tech bad, and wanted an SEC job. So as a UC fan I'm excited, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for retaining this guy for a long period.
  8. I agree. I don't know what's worse for the players, someone who lies to you about another job or someone who openly talks to every school that calls. He couldn't get out fast enough. I hope they can find someone that wants to lead this program to the next level. I know Strong got a nice pay raise from UL but it makes you respect him a little more for his loyalty.
  9. Maybe it's to tell his team he won coach of the year in BE, or that his price tag just went up and he's bouncing. Butch Jones is CBSSports.com's Big East Coach of the Year - CBSSports.com
  10. I don't know if they did or not but why would a source say he accepted the job and then the next day it falls apart. Something just doesn't seem right in the situation. I would hope that CU is more professional about things but in desperate times people do desperate things.
  11. IMO, Colorado is not a good job. I agree about the PR. If you have to think about it for 4 days, you don't really want to be there. His thought process was probably, 'I don't want to go to Colorado, but 15 million is a lot of guaranteed money.' I agree that Colorado is a bad place to be right now. I think the problem with the whole thing isn't that he took 4 days but that he said he would have an answer Tuesday and that it wasn't going to drag out. I understand why he had to think about it though UC needs upgrades, the money, but also conference alignment. Not knowing where you'll be in the big scheme of things is tough to stay behind. UC should have gave him the counter and let him have time to think about it. Putting him in front of cameras 2 days in a row made this thing an absolute mess. I hope he did turn it down to stay here for at least another year but I hope for the players sake they don't have to continue to go through this every 3 or 4 years. I think what has happened at UC with coaches and the fact they still are relevant speaks volumes for the athletes we have here.
  12. Ok so the conspiracy theorist in me says Colorado was getting impatient and leaked the story on purpose. In all seriousness, I like Butch, I think he has done good job coaching but he needs to work on his PR. This thing has been a nightmare for everyone involved.
  13. from Mo Brett farve thinks Butch Jones is indecisive. Lol
  14. Mo egger RT @dopplertim Butch denies he is taking job at Colorado.. Our zach wells just off the phone with butch jones.
  15. Press conference is over and he deflected the questions on if he were staying or going obviously. He was asked if intends to coach the bowl, and said I have every intention, but that's not why we're here.
