Bracket, shmacket. Here's a dirty job: rebuilding @RunRalphieRun. My column on Mike MacIntyre
Whether it's starting from the bottom or rekindling a traditional power, new coaches face a host of different challenges.
He has divided the team into nine families? Stuff like this is great if it works but then looks bird-esque if it doesn't.

He has broken the team up into 9 groups. Don't see how that is Bird-esque. Most every coach splits the team into groups. Maybe calling it a family is bird-esque but the splitting the team into groups is far from ground breaking. If MM fails I don't think it will be because of this.
The birdshit like stuff freaked me out too but I think MacIntyre has a lot of substance the bird doesn't. The other reason I think he might be legit is because the players are buying in despite their love for Embree.
Remember how the bird implemented all that birdshit and players started to oppose/revolt? It's early but I don't see the same thing happening.
This guy is no Bird! He is a good coach that is swimming up stream due to people like Phil D, The Oil Man, Betsy, ALLLLLL Regents, Bain Kerr, City of Boulder and most importantly The Bohner!
This quote is why I like this cat:
"Every person, when I told them I was thinking about taking the job," MacIntyre said of San Jose State, "there wasn't one person, not one person out of the 100 I asked, who told me I should take the job. And then when we were successful, I had people call me and tell me, 'I thought we'd never hear of you again. I thought your career would be over as a head coach when you took that job.'"
He has guts, but he also has a full bank account!
I will take DoughBoy ADs for $1,000 Alex! Who is Mike Bohn?
There is no outside pressure -- Colorado fans shed contempt a long time ago for the relative comfort of apathy.
Maisel is one of the few writers, national or local, to really have his finger on the pulse of CU football.
