Jordan Webb: CU-Boulder quarterback's arrest latest disaster for program in crisis

It's not exactly news that the CU-Boulder football program is a mess. But the hiring of former San Jose State head coach Mike MacIntyre was supposed to be the first step on the road to recovery.

Now, unfortunately, there's more recovery necessary, thanks to starting quarterback Jordan Webb's arrest over the weekend.

The story's complicated, but the continuing damage to a program in crisis is plain as day.
