So...You Alabama Fans...

    My employer Colorado State University just hired Jim McElwain, Alabama's Offensive Coordinator, as our new head coach.

    Is this guy ready for a head coaching position? He seems to have some things going for him, including NFL experience, a good run with Alabama and he has ties to the western US. I'm just finding it hard to get inspired by the choice...so tell me what I don't know!

    Comments??

    In this hotbed of SEC football discussion, not a single Alabama fan has an opinion??

    I should alert the media.

    It's Colorado State.

    Meaning?

    Like George Carlin said, "Wherever you are, there you are."

    So CSU has no rep as a football powerhouse - got it. But it's a top notch research university with 28,000 students, and we're located in Fort Collins, which makes the top 10 places to live in the US every year. This place has a lot going for it.

    And the pres and new athletic director are putting $1.35 mil into the new coach's salary...so I'm hoping some good things will result.

    That, my dear sir, would make you a non-fan of University of Alabama football, right?

    Gotta agree. Been to Fort Collins several times playin' the blues and I must say I wouldn't mind living there at all. I could say that about many places in Colorado though.

    It isn't a jab on my part, just the reality how I see it. Is he qualified to coach CSU? Sure. Alabama or Michigan type programs? Probably not.

    :D We try to conceal our suffering, being the noble spirits that we are.

    Did I mention we're also referred to as the NAPA Valley of Microbrews? Three craft breweries are located within 1.5 miles of my house....;)
