    The sports talk radio in Denver this morning has been 100% screaming outrage over what a bad guy Tucker is. I bet 99.5% of the talking heads would have done the same thing if they were in his shoes.

    Edit, just remembered this: When Tucker's contract was up before the regents, one of the regents was lobbying not to approve because football is a violent sport. That viewpoint is not unusual at CU and in Boulder.

    Outrage is what talking heads do. CU had a taste of the big time when McCartney recruited straight out of Compton when USC was dicking around and others wouldn't go there and some still have an inflated sense of the program ceiling. That said, I think Tucker could have done more at CU in a crappy PAC-12, at least as long as USC continues to fuck around. than he'll do at Sparty playing THE, the Peds, and scUM every year. If he'd been there more than a year and/or not pulled his name from MSU, expressed his commitment to CU and then changed his mind when Sparty got desperate and jacked up its offer, he'd be getting treated a bit better.

    It is true that the culture of Boulder is not especially conducive to big-time football.

    Well that was disappointing... was hoping this cluster would drag on for another month at least.
    And they seem to come out with a decent prospect that fits philosophically (hard nosed Defense) and well acquainted with sister.
    This does not have the laugh out loud factor of Bielema.
    My prediction - Tucker is gone in 3years. Either using MSU as a stepping stone or fired. Most likely latter after struggling to rebound with recruiting.

    Talking heads on ESPN claiming PAC 12 upset that Tucker was plucked by a Big Ten team. Citing the huge diff between the success/money of BTN and PAC 12 TV as a part of how the deal went down..

    I just don’t understand why the pac12 network isn’t raking in the money. They have tens of viewers nationwide.

    and ESPN diminishing their brand even worse than it does to the B1G.

    You want to see an overnight rise in the quality of play in the PAC12? Sign a deal with ESPN.

    Wait.....ESPN is painting the BTN as the villain? This is a new development!

    Just the opposite - pointing to the Big Ten and SEC as having surpassed the PAC 12 in football, basketball and TV/media, and painting the PAC as falling behind in all three aspects.

    It's true though. Regardless of the why, ESPN's actually not wrong about this.
