Chuck Fairbanks


Was done when he arrived at CU. He just wanted out of NE. Beyond that, in an era of 100+ scholarships he miscalculated Boulder as an equivalent to Norman and OU. It wasn’t. The problem with Fairbanks stemmed from his initial hire. I guess that falls on Eddie. But latter still one of the CU greats of all time. May he Rest In Peace.
