The debate rages on about who should replace Dan Hawkins as coach of the CU Buffs, with plenty of fans hoping for package deal of Bill McCartney and Dave Logan.

But one reader hopes McCartney pairs up with another former CU great.

Here's what Robert had to say:

Dave Logan is a great local celebrity but he hasn't paid the coaching dues it usually takes to be a head coach at a BCS school. The history of raising high school coaches to head coaches of major college football programs is not good. Make Eric Bienemy head coach and have Bill McCartney come in as a special advisor. Together, they'd bring a vision for winning, energy and passion. And they'd have the alumni, former and current CU players and fans behind them.
