Anonymous PAC coach talk from Athlon

Here's what they say about us:


"It will be interesting to see how they look this year. What was the real [Karl] Dorrell product? The quick wins in the pandemic season, or what came after? They're definitely still transitioning, and some of that is because of the time of year [Mel] Tucker left and the inability to hire out from a full pool of assistants, but the trick with Colorado is that from the outside, the expectations are unclear. Coaches talk in this league, and there's a rep out that they're not interested in pressing to be great again, that they're just going to be focused on academics."

"They have a lot of unknowns with their personnel, but they're trying to recruit more aggressively and sell the campus, sell the culture. It's a great place to recruit to."

"They have a good offensive line, better than you think, and they have some really good offensive coaches now. The issues are going to be if the portal departures were because of good new culture or bad new culture. Anytime you see that movement, you wonder who's at fault there."

"Since they've joined the league, they've underperformed relative to their potential, if you believe in Colorado as a brand, because they could recruit and develop like a Utah if they had the right guys in there."

"Dorrell is a veteran coach. There's a chance he can play this right and let his guys recruit their asses off and surprise some people in a year or two. Until then, you look at this program and think about what could be."
