    Now we have to worry about Coach “C” making a run at that position. If he did take it, it would certainly set up a whole lot of drama when LU and CU play.

    My guess is that Colgate will hire someone from their current or former coaching staff. They have used the read option offense for so long, with so much success that I can’t see them hiring a head coach who advocates a pass first offense.

    They hired their associate head:

    Sorry to see Biddle go — he was a class act.

    He’s 66, but I wonder how much tougher it has become for a good guy to recruit students paid to play football. Seems like there is a different strategy these days.

    If JMU were smart they’d approach Chick.That talent running a wide open but disciplined offense is what the Dukes have been missing. Go ahead and get Matt Sanders back from UAB to head the defense. That guy can recruit and motivate. JMU would be set for years.

    I thought Biddle would be hanging it up when I was up at Colgate and they had a ‘bobblehead’day for him and also had his first recruited class back for a halftime ceremony. Very unique in his approach. Never wore headsets, walked by himself along the sidelines seeming alone with his thoughts. He had a great run. Not surprised they’re staying in-house.

    Engineer:

    Good point when you said:

    “Never wore headsets, walked by himself along the sidelines seeming alone with his thoughts.”

    When you think about it, a coaching style like that is pure leadership: Set the tone for your team and assistants, work with them during the week, but on game day, let them execute — without your micromanaging.

    It’d sure take a lot for me to give up that input/control on game day.

    And he did have a good run.

    Now it makes sense why they chose an assistant. A good leader makes sure he has a top-notch replacement.
