I love the group of dozens of students cheering for his arrival. I guess that's what a perennial losing program will do to a fan base.

Colorado over the years......has been one of the worst Power 5 programs in the country.

They finished 1-11 this year. Most of those players have no concept of winning or what it takes to win. They need some tough words.

They had those great 1989 and 1990 years. Did really well in 1994-96. Other than that they've had two 10 win seasons....1997 to present.

In that same time period they've had 18 losing seasons.

Since 1997 they've had horrid seasons of:
2000 3-8
2006 2-10
2009 3-9
2011 3-10
2012 1-11
2013 4-8
2014 2-10
2015 4-9
2021 4-8
2022 1-11

They haven't been competitive most years.

They are a program that should be competing for conference titles regularly, at a minimum.
Bill McCartney figured out how to tap into California for recruiting and that is what he built that program on in the 80s. They really did go on a great run in the late 80s into the early 90s and were a huge thorn in Nebraska's side (OU was on the slide). But when he stepped down, Neuheisel couldn't quite keep the formula going. Gary Barnett recovered things, but wow did he allow some wild stuff to go on and they've just never recovered from that fiasco.

Wow, I had forgotten all about all that Gary Barnett stuff. That's been a long time.

You’d think a former defensive player would have better expectations for his defense.

This. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see Colorado in the top10 recruiting rankings sooner than later.

I mean, he got the #1 player in the country to sign at an HBCU. Full stop. That is unreal.

As in, don't be surprised when top recruit(s) / player(s) picks Colorado over teams like Bama, OSU, Michigan, UGA. He really connects with players.

Add to that what he's shown he can do at JSU, which has been impressive, and right now it looks like his unconventional approach to, well, everything, might not be an issue after all.
Agreed. I get the feeling the northern schools are going to more affected than the ones in the south. But Prime is going to change the landscape of recruiting in a significant way.
