We have heard this comparison with Hawkins, Embree, Macintyre, and Dorrell


I do not think any them are valid comparisons for the following reasons.

1) McCartney was a great recruiter who recruited well above CU’s level from day one. Within a year he shut down the borders and was winning recruits from schools like USC and Nebraska. He recruited to win rather then win to recruit. Crowder was the same. Despite CU win/losses, I remember having a great deal of optimism due to the talent you could see him bringing in.

2) McCartney was an innovator and changed the system to the I-Bone which offered the best opportunity to win given the talent he had to work with. Something Buffalo Bob and others have brought up numerous times.

With Dorrell and the past coaches I see poor recruiting and a lack of innovation, and therefore see no longer term path to success. My optimism level for this program is ZERO.
