Colorado interim head coach Brian Cabral is 2-0 with wins over Iowa State and Kansas State. On Monday, Cabral, who does have some support, made it clear he desires the job permanently.
Cabral said, “I'm seeing more and more former players that are getting more excited about the program again. They're all into it. They're very proud of this team. They're very proud of these players and what we've accomplished these last two weeks."
"I can lead. I can inspire. I can make a difference. I've always known that about myself."
"I represent every Buff that wore that helmet, every guy that put on black and gold. I represent them. And I'm living a dream right now. To be in this position and to lead a team, to lead a team into a week like Nebraska, to lead a team into a place like Lincoln, I'm so privileged. I'm so blessed to have this opportunity."

Meanwhile, Vanderbilt head coach Robbie Caldwell admitted that he doesn’t know what the future holds.
“I sure don’t. I have no idea. I’m just going to keep working. I can’t control that. I’m trying to work on things I can control, but good question,” Caldwell said.
“I’ve enjoyed my time here at Vanderilt, but hopefully it won’t be. ... I understand that’s the life of a football coach in this day and time. I told you the story a few weeks ago. Jim Valvano came in with a lifetime contract and got fired. There’s nothing in stone as a coach. You live from one year to the next. You hope to go from there.”
