Wish Mac would just come back to CSU and be Sonny Lubick 2.0... But for some dumbass reason we extended... He must get a penalties committed bonus.

Now Mac is a WR coach at MIchigan... So weird. Oh well, RTR

In that I never log in, I must have read the details somewhere else. But when McElwain left Colorado State he was under contract and as I remember this is part of the buyout for Florida.

McElwain had to come out of his own pocket with $2 Mill to make it work.

Neither program is better for the move... CSU stuck with Bobo and Florida out about $12 Mill from his buyouts.

Thats the gist

Wonder if Coach Mullen has been told by the powers at Florida to put as many points as possible on Colorado St. That's a tall task since UF has had trouble putting points on the board. I am glad CSU was able to benefit financially.
