Boulder-In another reality, Dylan McCaffrey ran behind Ralphy on Friday night.
Along some other timelines, he might even share a CU backcourt with his younger brother Luke. Colorado football’s first family reunited, leading Buffs to the glory of Pac-12.
However, is this reality?
This reality is not so much.
“Well, it’s weird that not everyone has a scholarship,” former Broncos great and University of North Carolina football coach Ed McCaffrey told The Post when asked about his son-more specifically , Why do not one of them fit in CU.
“Also, (with) some of them, they made a coaching change (in Boulder) when they graduated from high school.
“So if you ask me (when they) grow up, if one of them will go to CU, I will say,’Maybe, yes.’ But that’s not the case.”
Dylan is adjusting to a local team this week-but his father’s University of North Carolina Bears will face the Buff team at Folsom Stadium in the season opener of the two projects on Friday.
The latest QB of the Bears moved home from Michigan. Luke signed with Nebraska, Nebraska, but then jumped to Louisville, then Rice.Max performed well under David Cartercliffe, Peyton Manning’s old pass teacher, At DukeChristian dominates Ed’s alma mater, Stanford University.
They are the ones who escaped.Those ones always Ran away. Luke was named the first player in the state in the 19th grade by 247Sports. Dylan was the second-ranked player in the state on the previous recruitment site for both classes.Christian is Digital United Nations Year 2014. Max ranked 15th in 2012.
This is one of the greatest assumptions in recent CU football history.
This reminds us of one of the largest elephants remaining in the room:
why not? How did Ed and CU’s sons marry no happen?
Old McCaffrey paused.
“(In CU) has been chaotic,” the UNC coach replied. “But it looks like they now have very good stability and a very high level of talent under the leadership of coach (Carl) Dorell.”
Blame the timing.
Blame the turnover.
Buffs is their fourth football coach since 2011 and the third since 2017. Although Mike MacIntyre (2013-18 season) won the division championship and is still the only CU football coach to appear in the Pac-12 Championship, this man is not on the door to retaining local talent. Lock the padlock.
“(McCaffrey) has four boys and they are all very successful,” Dorell said after practice on Tuesday. “The reason for their success is that there are a lot of coaches going on at McCaffrey’s house. When they went to their respective universities, they obviously expanded it.
“So this is part of (Ed’s) fabric. So I believe this is a great career for him and he will do a good job (in the Bears). I just don’t want it to happen on Friday.”
In addition to briefly serving as offensive coordinator at Vanderbilt, Dorell has coached in the NFL for most of the past ten years, that is, McCaffrey’s ten years. He signed with CU until December 2024. If you are a Buffs fan, this second-year coach represents an opportunity to ensure that the next first football family in Colorado sees things that Ed’s children did not see in Boulder:
affim. consistency. Start from the top.
“In the summer, all my children went camping there (in CU),” old McCaffrey recalled. “For many years, I have been a friend of several CU coaches and assistant coaches and participated in golf tournaments (with them).
“And many of these people are in my football family. Including Karl, he is my catcher coach for the Broncos. So (I) have a lot of love for those guys. A long history.”
