Agree to an extent...


MM moved his family here and he was strong on his commitment to CU. If he would have bailed for more money, it would have been in 2016. I think he probably would have stayed if the program kept progressing 8 wins in one of the last two seasons. The seven game losing streak did not help with job security. I think, clearly, given that RG did not hire him, he was always on the hot seat--whether warranted or not. His roots were always in the South.

I graduated, love CU and go to all the games, but from an overall fan support perspective CU does not have it. The students show up late. Many of the season ticket holders leave early. I stayed for the end of the CSU game at Mile High, and was a little embarrassed that so many CU fans departed early. The team celebrated the trophy, but the CU fans remaining were in the hundreds, not thousands. The game was a blow out.
