Theres a few former athletes on here, and I'm one too (kind of), and I have to tell you two observations I have. First---the first game should nearly be thrown out as a yard marker for the season. The first game of the season anyone can be beaten and you are often times so out of sorts. The cliche that the biggest improvement is between games 1 and 2 is so true that its silly. You have people out there who have never stepped foot on a college football field, who are just now understanding schemes, in CU's case receivers that are just guessing what they're supposed to be doing due to missing nearly all of camp. Can someone tell me we're not more talented than CSU? For the first time in years, we are. Im not saying that this has nothing to do with Hawkins, it does. I get it and this has nothing to do with saving his job or anything. I could give a ****. Part of his job is to have the team prepared. A big part. But, I also think it runs deeper than that. The man has won elsewhere, he's capable of preparing a team. Until this year, Im not sure we had the talent to win games (going to a Bowl was a damn good coaching job, IMO). This game we got beat. Period. Shouldnt have. First game and i'd be SHOCKED if we ddint blow out Toledo and win 7-8 games this year. Second---the theory that coach is "losing the team". Ehhh, thats way over-rated. If there was some mass upheaval or uprising against Hawk, okay. Thats a big deal. Thats not happening guys. THEY got beat. The players are pissed at themselves, D. Scott is pissed (though such a class act, he just wants carries this week), the rest of the team isnt like giving up on the season. Theres seniors on the team that just want to win and play. The underclassmen just want to prove themselves and earn a job next year. This **** about the team being, pissed about TH is crazy and not true. You and I can say what we want about who should start, but, the team doesnt believe this is a problem. First, Cody is super popular. Second, TH wanted to start first, if not, he WANTED to redshirt. The team just wants to win....for Dan Hawkins or for ****ing batman, they dont care whos coaching at this point. They trust their coach and coordinators. There are some players on every team who are disgruntled, some who LOVE the coach, etc, etc. Im rambling so heres the point---we beat Toldedo by 28. Book it. I wanted to go on record BEFORE the game so I can be called out if Im wrong. Im not.
