What for you was the worst news from Monday?
  • That CU was interviewing Bret Bielema. He left Wisconsin in a contract dispute, and fared poorly at Arkansas. Plus, if he were to be successful, he would leave CU in a heartbeat. Just say no! (42%, 209 Votes)
  • That CU was losing OC Jay Johnson and OL coach Chris Kapilovic to Michigan State. Both were highly thought of ... and leaves CU that much less stable going forward (41%, 206 Votes)
  • That CU has gone another day without a head coach. "We hope to finish this process in a timely manner" is not reassuring to fans ... or players (17%, 83 Votes)

What do you make of Chris Fowler's comment about "prominent guys" being interested in CU's head coaching position?
  • Like it, though I'm not sure what to make of the "they might not be head coaches now" comment. Steve Sarkasian? Jim Mora? Bret Bielma? Chris Petersen? (41%, 173 Votes)
  • Love it ... Unlike the national media, there are those who understand CU to be a destination position. (Much deserved) good news is coming our way! (41%, 173 Votes)
  • I appreciate Chris Fowler wearing his CU alumnus hat, but with the search limited to a "Committee of Two", his speculation is no more valuable than that of anyone else (18%, 73 Votes)

What timeline are you looking for concerning the naming of CU's next head coach?
  • I don't have a timeline. It's important - check that, vital - to get this hire right, even if it means messing with spring practices in Year One (50%, 212 Votes)
  • By the end of the month at the latest. Spring practices begin March 14th, and you would think CU would want their new coach to have at least two weeks to prepare (26%, 108 Votes)
  • By next Wednesday at the latest. It only took Michigan State a week to find their coach. The longer CU waits, the worse it looks (and the more players and assistant coaches CU may lose) (24%, 100 Votes)

Which of the following "outside of the box" candidates would you most like to see as CU's next head coach?
  • Former USC head coach Steve Sarkisian - He seems to have cleaned up his act since being fired at USC, and was also successful at Washington. He knows the Pac-12 (68%, 244 Votes)
  • Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin - CU fans are thinking "Dan Hawkins" - Rick George might be thinking "Chris Petersen" (13%, 48 Votes)
  • Arizona State DC Marvin Lewis - The former NFL head coach just recently returned to the college game to coach with Herm Edwards. Maybe he wants his own gig (12%, 42 Votes)
  • North Dakota State head coach Matt Entz - The last two North Dakota State head coaches are doing well at Wyoming and Kansas State respectively (7%, 27 Votes)

Which potential candidate with no previous coaching ties to CU would be your favorite?
  • Oregon DC Andy Avalos - Turned the Ducks' defense around in short order, and did well at Boise State (28%, 107 Votes)
  • USC OC Graham Harrell - Harrell is great with QB's and offenses, and would be considered a splash hire (25%, 96 Votes)
  • Oklahoma DC Alex Grinch - Had success at Washington State, Ohio State and Oklahoma ... could be ready for a P-5 head coaching opportunity (22%, 86 Votes)
  • Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun or Wyoming coach Craig Bohl - Both are used to making more out of less, and are certainly familiar recruiting in the Mountain West states (13%, 51 Votes)
  • Arkansas State coach Blake Anderson - All he does is win, and he is used to recruiting Texas for talent (12%, 45 Votes)
