It’s been a roller coaster ride of a week for the Colorado State Rams and their fans.

On Monday, it looked like CSU had landed a huge hire in Derrick Ansley, the DBs coach at Alabama, to be the Rams next defensive coordinator. The young, intelligent Ansley would have been perfect in Fort Collins, and his Crimson Tide won the National Championship that night. All while Rams head coach Mike Bobo was featured on the coaches film room, doing well there to represent the program.

But, then Ansley was lured away by the Oakland Raiders of the NFL, leaving Bobo and the Rams to scramble. According to reports, John Jancek will be the next defensive coordinator at Colorado State, and we give you a ton of information on where he’s coached and how his defenses have done, most notably at Tennessee (2013-15).

More coaching news as Joe Cox interviewed at Tennessee and Bisi Johnson spoke at Green Mountain High School on Thursday.

Finally, we talk Prentiss Nixon’s “flu game” on Wednesday, a phenomenal performance, playing through the pain of an injured knee to push the Rams to a huge road win. That, and more, on this episode of your Rams Cast.
