Utah was and is committed. They fired McBride, although he took over an

awful program and built it into a WAC/MWC contender - winning a couple of co-championships in his 13 years. That wasn't good enough - they canned him. That's not in CSU's DNA.

Another example, the late, great Rick Majerus. He replaced Lynn Archibald - an above average record with one NCAA bid and two NIT bids in six years. Would CSU fire someone with that hoops record? Probably not. Stew Morrill could have stayed in Fort Collins forever, if would have wanted to. Utah brings in Majerus, a great coach but a somewhat "different" personality. A single guy that never bought a home in SLC - lived in the downtown Marriott. Not warm and cuddly with the media or with fans. I seriously doubt that CSU would give a guy like that a chance to build a winner. CSU likes the "family guy" that is easy to have a beer with.

CSU's leadership - Board of Governors, Chancellor, and President - need to decide if they want to pursue college athletics at the "P5" level. Then communicate the goal to fans. Then supporters can decide how to direct their time, energy, and money.
