After long last, the Colorado State Rams football team has their new defensive coordiantor in Derrick Ansley. Mike Bobo knocked this hire out of the park, hiring an up-and-coming, brilliant young football mind in Ansley, who’s worked his tail off to move up through the college football coaching ranks.

We look at Ansley’s history, which started at Troy University as a player, went through D-III Huntingdon College and has him currently with the Alabama Crimson Tide as their DBs coach. Of course, Rams fans know how important a new, exciting and exuberant defensive coordinator will be to the team’s efforts in winning a Mountain West Championship as Bobo’s offense has been stellar, but the offense has been terrible as of late.

We look at what Ansley did at ‘Bama as well as the co-defensive coordinator at Kentucky and what that should mean for CSU’s defense. Also, Ansley made his first hire, a promotion within the defense, which we tell you all about.

Speaking of Bobo, he will be part of the National Championship broadcast tonight, how you can tune in, and speaking of National Championships: Buy your 1915 CSU National Champions shirt here.

Finally, we get into what’s wrong with CSU men’s basketball after two tough, home losses last week and more inside your CSU Rams Cast.
