Mike Shanahan-to-CU rumors appear to be as bogus as predicted

Mike Shanahan is a wanted man.
It only took a day for evidence that speculation about Mike Shanahan following the doomed Dan Hawkins as head coach for CU to crumble.

NFL.com's Vic Carucci reports that Shanny's likely to talk next week with the braintrust of the Buffalo Bills, who just sacked Dick Jauron. Carucci points out that the Washington Redskins have been rumored to want Shanahan's services, too, but a "source close to the Bills" says he's "intrigued by the 'low-maintenance' situation he would have in Buffalo as opposed to Washington," where owner Daniel Snyder is basically an Al Davis-in-training when it comes to interference.

There's no guarantee Shanahan will take the Buffalo position if offered -- although, having dealt with Brandon Marshall, he'd have a leg-up when it comes to handling the Bills' most notable sideline-and-locker-room challenge, Terrell Owens. But the entreaty demonstrates that Big Mike has oodles of options more attractive than trying to put CU back together again.
