Buffs beat Illinois-Chicago, 84-72, to run their record to 7-1. Thoughts?
  • Somewhat impressed. The Pac-12 doesn't have many very good teams. The Buffs may not be great, but they have played well in spurts, so there is hope for a decent Pac-12 run (51%, 149 Votes)
  • Not impressed. Buffs won't play at home again until January 10th. Let's see what CU's record after the Buffs have played some real competition (33%, 96 Votes)
  • Impressed. Balanced scoring + selfless play + McKinley Wright taking over in close games = a team which can make some noise in the Pac-12 (16%, 47 Votes)

How important is it to you to that Mel Tucker retain some of the current coaching staff?
  • Somewhat important. It would be nice to have some coaches in the fold to aid in the transition - and get some buy-in from the current roster (55%, 221 Votes)
  • Not important at all. The program needs a fresh start, and Coach Tucker needs to put his own stamp on the coaching staff (26%, 105 Votes)
  • Very important. With so little time to recruit, continuity on the staff is vital. Plus, it may be more economical to keep some of the old staff on the payroll (19%, 78 Votes)

  • "We will be technically sound and fundamentally sound. It's not just about the Xs and Os. We'll always be able to rely on our technique and fundamentals, on both sides of the ball" (19%, 71 Votes)

Mel Tucker named CU head football coach. Initial reaction?
  • Excitement! As Rick George put it: "He has great experience and a terrific pedigree; I like the way he coaches football" (67%, 450 Votes)
  • Relief. To be honest, I'm just glad the waiting is over, and we can start focusing in on getting great assistants, and preserving the Recruiting Class (17%, 114 Votes)
  • Uncertainty. Tucker certainly sounds like a good choice, but he's never been a head coach, and has no ties to the west coast for recruiting. We'll see what sort of staff he puts together (16%, 111 Votes)
