The Buffaloes set out to find a defensive-minded head coach, and they landed one of the best in Mel Tucker. Tucker officially accepted the job on Wednesday and announced that he will depart Georgia immediately and get started as new Buffs head man. "We're not going to settle," he told one Denver radio station in an interview. Having been around Alabama and Georgia, Mel knows what it means to be a winning program. We don't expect him to turn water into wine, but I don't think it takes long for him to get the Buffs back into Pac 12 relevance. He's a top 15 recruiter and understands Colorado tradition.
