Fall guy


Speculating, but if this coaching search continues to not go well, and if it looks like we are going to have to settle for a coach with no more to recommend him than the guy we just fired, CU is going to need a fall guy, and that means Bohn. It doesn't matter what successes he has had to date - mixed record at any rate - he's the only one out there who's firing would mend a lot of fences. He's toxic. I can't think of any more serious reason for a coach NOT to come to Colorado than the fact that Bohn gave Embree less than two years to turn around a program that was already on it's last leg. Sure Embree is getting a buyout, but this is a stain on his record. And the next coach that would come in and get fired in two years would get an even nicer buyout, but would still have a stain on his record. If CU throws Bohn to the wolves, everyone can blame him for the mess, wipe the slate clean, 'rehabilitate' the Mac crowd, and tell the next coach - with credibility - that he will have more than 2 years to work this thing out. Much as Bohn must have calculated that the canning of Embree would be a quick and cheap solution to the perception of the state of CU football, a quick tossing of Bohn would go miles toward wiping the slate clean. I'm not too sure that Bohn is going to survive this mess that he created.
