This team is in The Tourney and Bohn is nowhere to be found! Taking student to In and Out is nice, but gettin $ peeps on the road is a homerun (Sorry to use his words when hiring HawkTard). People are dying for something to sink their teeth into. Why is there no charter to the first round. I can't understand how people tolerate this guy anymore. We need on Thursday this team was in and he and his staff had 3 days to get this charter set up.
Again, no vision, no idea how to grow a network, no marketing ability whatsoever! Why do you CU Fans tolerate this guy. I expected after last year he would actually put something together for those fans who are willing to buy in to his Bull$hit!
Get rid of this clown!
You are blasting the man that hired the program builder for not duplicating his unprecedented effort to fly students out to a tournament, all while not understanding the proper principles of grammar. Just a brutal post
weird. Why aren't you a CU fan?
BY the way, I saw Bohn at the MGM grand and spoke to him.
One for allbuffs, Allbuffs for one. Shoulder to Shoulder!
A little harsh don't you think. I'm not necessarily a Bohn fan but he has seemed to finally hit home runs with Tad and Linda Lappe. They just found out where they would be going for the tournament and I'm sure he'll be setting up travel plans and meet and greets in Austin and hitting up the alumni for donations to the programs. I'm sure the Chancellor and the President will be there as well and will be also trying to persuade alumni to donate to the the school and Athletics. Athletics presented plans to the Campus Planning Commission this week for the new Academic Center under the Club seats and the possible expansion scenarios of Dal Ward for a new weight room, Football Operations Center, and other Athletic operational needs. All this obviously needs donors to step up to make this happen but at least they are moving to develop an official program plan.
Hahaha - well said!
Typical bone apologists. bone has never had a winning program before nor hired a winning coach, even after over a decade as an athletic director. This is virgin territory for him. He doesn't know how to handle his good luck. Be patient. Maybe after another decade of experience and some additional success the moron will have a plan and have it figured out.

Cuing Sly in 3, 2, 1......
When Boyle was hired, the other two candidates were Mike Dunlap, current HC of the Charlotte Bobcats, and Steve McClain, current asst. at Indiana.
Obviously Boyle and Dunlap would have been the two best hires and Bohn probably couldn't have gone wrong with Dunlap if he chose him over Boyle,
I think McClain was more of a token interview since he was already on staff. Similar to how Cabral was always intereviewed for the head coach job even though he had no shot of getting it.
Point being, was this a case of Bohn just lucking out because he had two very good basketball coaches down the road with Boyle at UNC and Dunlap at Metro State? Or might he have had an idea of what he was doing?
Did he also just luck out with Lappe? Although, Lappe was more of a recommendation via Ceal Barry, I suppose.

It's not just about basketball, it's about building the network above its lame, stagnant state. This is his chance to build and fortify new donors, fans and continue growing what the studentbody has already built into something that hasn't existed ever at Colorado. How do you people not see that? I know, you have never dealt with a real AD! EVER!
Luck is when preparation meets opportunity, imo. So yes Bohn, especially given his hiring history and track record "lucked" into the Lappe and Boyle hire. The difference in those two hires and the Bz, hawkins and embree hires is that bohn and/or his dept did a legitimate coaching search (didn't happen w/ the embree hire) instead of zeroing in on a lone candidate from the beginning (like he did w hawkins and Bz) and failing to do due dillegence.
Those searches alone represpent preparation. With Boyle there were 2 other legitimate candidates brought in, and for Lappe, Berry assembled a hiring commitee. "Opportunity" presented itself when Bohns college buddy, who also happens to be a colorado native built a program @ UNC from the ground up and would jump at the opportunity @ CU.
Unfortunately it doesn't appear that bohn learned from his success. He targeted Butch Jones early in the football hiring process and put all his eggs in that basket...no thorough search was conducted. I believe its an absolute blessing in disguise that Jones was such a flake because he was a bad fit for what CU needed. Its alarming bohn thought he was the ideal candidate....and "lucking" into MacIntyre should turn out to be the best thing for CU and may end up saving bohns job
Just got this in my email today--seems pretty cool....sort of along the lines of what you're talking about. Flying with the team to Austin, game tix, some food, and hotel--comes with a decent price tag but in the ballpark of what you'd spend if you booked the whole thing yourself...
I agree that MacIntyre is a MUCH better fit than Jones was. Though I do feel better about a few of Jones' assts.
It'll be very interesting to see how Jones does in Knoxville. He definitely closed well in recruiting.
Yes. No. Yes.
Tell us how you really feel, Huge.
