I also agree that Terry Frei wrote an excellent piece as he usually does

However, I totally disavow the notion of giving a coach 4-5 years to somehow, someway build a program into something approaching or achieving consistent success. When Terry says that, that's the son of college football coach talking-Terry's dad was the coach at Oregon St for a good while if I remember correctly. I think Terry sees a bit of his dad in every coach, good, bad, or indifferent; but I digress.

College football like any big money sport is now, rightly or wrongly focused on getting success and winning sooner not later. Again the Utah St analogy shows this to be true. A program of abject quitters last season is contending for a conference title this season. How is it they can do it but not us?! Coaching! Pure and simple. I refer you to my post of late last evening on Dave Aranda. SA ain't the guy and while he's brought some good things to the program--anyone who denies that is blind--he's shown that he's just not HC material. His time at BC showed that. His time here has shown that. He can be a good member of a staff, but he's most definitely not the guy to lead that staff and the program.

With the facilities we have and the university we have, we simply can't afford, in this uber-competitive environment, to keep throwing good money after bad hoping a guy can turn it around. To guys like Whammy--no disrespect intended my good RAM, but 3,4,5 years of recruiting won't change the fact he stubbornly refuses to get away from stuff that hasn't worked and continues not to work, ie run up the middle for little or no gain constantly, no ST coach, not being prepared, fantasmagorically bad clock management and the list goes on. Again going back to last night's post, "undisciplined players are coached by undisciplined coaches".

I was completely flabbergasted at the truth of that statement when I read it. That's the kind of truth Terry wrote that SA is in denial of. Nobody likes to play musical coaches, but when a guy incontrovertibly proves to you week in and week out that he lacks the self awareness to address his own flaws and mistakes as a coach, a change has to be made. I refuse to believe that we here at CSU can't do what Utah St and many other schools have done going worst to 1st or worse to significantly better in a very short amount of time. We simply need to find the right leader(s). But, aye there's the rub!
