This is quite the strawman. Who is s#!tting their pants about Sanders possibly coming to Lincoln? I'm not seeing them. And even if there are a few, are they s#!tting their pants any more than other posters about any other coach coming to Lincoln? 5 hours ago, Guy Chamberlin said: If the decision was up to me I would have gone the Trev route, too. Rhule and Fickle probably the top choices, Deion not in serious consideration. But if my top choices turn me down and I'm looking at a pool of Campbell and O'Brien and Leipold and Mickey Joseph and even Lane Kiffin, I'm suddenly thinking Deion Sanders brings a better chance of change and hope. No great coach succeeded at the D1 level until he did. As noted in an earlier post, 75% of the hottest coaching hires in the 2014 and 2018 cycle that got us Riley and Frost are no longer head coaches. Nobody knows how any coach is going to do until the games are played. If you listen to the folks who follow college football closely, Deion Sanders has earned the consideration, probably over-hyped but in no way a foolish choice. Who is disagreeing with you? I'm not - I in fact agree with everything you said here. I have said Sanders is a flashy hire but very risky because he doesn't have the coaching track record to back it up with a total of 2 years college coaching experience - and both of those years are not even in D1A. But even with all of those risks, I still think he's a good hire for CU because they desperately need some hype - and Sanders 100% brings that. The funny thing here is the posters who with near certainty think Sanders will succeed at the highest level at CU. 3 Quote Link to comment
