Mac To Talk Recruiting On The Barbershop

On this week's FSN LIVE AT THE BARBERSHOP, former University of Colorado football coach and 1989 National Coach of the Year Bill McCartney reunites with two of his former players, Charles Johnson and Alfred Williams to talk about the Buffaloes' newest recruiting class.

CU's all-time winningest football coach delves into what he thinks about the 23 student-athletes who signed with the Buffaloes and gives his opinion on what current coach Dan Hawkins can expect from his newcomers in the near future.

Although Bill McCartney is in the Barbershop to discuss the current recruiting class, Johnson and Williams turn the tables to talk about how great of a recruiter McCartney was and what it took for him to bring in some top talent to lead the team to an eventual national championship in 1990. McCartney, whose first three teams at CU were a combined 7-25-1, explains what it takes to turn a program into a national power.

McCartney's stop in the Barbershop would not be complete without a hairstyle change. In the "NuDu" segment, the three-time Big 8 Coach of the Year gets the hair do's of Al Sharpton, Don King and Jesus.

The Barbershop episode featuring Coach Mac debuts Feb. 15 at 10:30 p.m., then replays Feb. 16 at 1:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. and Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
