Can't Spell Circus Without CU

Some wack crook stole my black book I know who took it...

I stopped by the Spring Game at CU yesterday and the one non-football item that stood out was a wirey dude bolting the stands, iPhone to his ear, moving like there was someplace to be. It was basketball assistant Steve McClain, and after I heard the buzz in the stands about coach Jeff Bzdelik about ready to head to Wake Forest, I knew why McClain was so frazzled.

That's the way things are in Boulder right now, as the AD approaches the near-comical levels of the Fairbanks era. The women's hoops team has no coach, as AD Mike Bohn appointed a committee to spearhead a coaching search. Committee? Mike, you're the boss, you pick the replacement. Save the committees for picking the theme of the Summer Formal. The only name to surface thus far is a Division II coach down the road at Metro. Remember, this is a Hoops program that just a few years back was a regular in the NCAA tourney. Not only a regular, but consistent wins in the tourney.

Down the hall is the bread winner, the once proud Football program, headed by a man who was, then wasn't fired this fall. We all know his shortcomings, as the list grows nearly every week. Check the Spring Game: Hawk credited the team with "spending alot of time" on their pre-game Haka dance. Haka huh? I'm all for college kids having fun, but maybe a 3-9 team should be spending more time on, you know, blocking, tackling, and kicking. (BTW, the kicking game in Boulder is laughable. The array of players trying to make FGs would even make Gary Barnett say "not only are they noodle legs, but they can't kick the ball through the uprights." And boy, they can't kick the ball through the uprights, not even near the uprights, barely in the same ZIP code as the uprights.) There were some good moments in the scrimmage, as it was spirited and the players generally preformed well. Perhaps the reason? Hawk didn't coach one lick in the game! The divided team was coached by two assistants while Hawk roamed the sidelines and end zones.

Finally, Jeff Bzdelik is bailing on the program he helped "build" (from a losing team, to a losing team, to a team one game under 500...such "building!") for the ACC. Coach Bz couldn't match wits with the coaches at Iowa State and Nebraska, now he gets Coach K and the ACC barrage of coaches? Good luck with that Bz. But the fact Bz would jump so quickly has an undertone of someone bailing on an AD, an entire University, and even a fan base that is quickly fragmenting and losing the punch they once had.

The new coach from Metro went 17-12 in the rugged RMAC!

So long Buzz, thanks for further ruining yet another basketball team that I care about.

Think he could find a way to get hired by the Lakers?
