Mallory had a 35-21 record. Fairbanks can only blame himself


Fairbanks was a name-brand, celebrity coach when he took over a winning team. No reason at all for him to lose and recruit as badly as he did.

I don't think CU was completely void of any talent when he got there. They didn't have recruiting rankings in those days, but relatively speaking, I think the level of talent was probably as good or better than it is today.
