Neither is Kansas, if you base it on local talent.


Some schools set the bar high and ignore local talent, specifically the lack thereof. CU has not done that in the last 3 or 4 decades. The fact that we've had ANY success in the last 20 years is just dumb luck. Patton fell into our laps following Harrington's failures. It so happened that Patton could recruit. When he failed (it took a while, but was inevitable), we went with a hot local hand - Bzdelik. When he left (inevitable because he never planned on staying here very long), we went with the next LOCAL (see a trend?) hot hand, Boyle. We all know how that's playing out.

Point is, a CU AD has NEVER done a national search for a great coach, and acquired the backing to make that happen. Fingers crossed, Rick George recognizes that he needs to do that, and can make it happen.
