    I don't understand how this is possible.. Woelk says Hawk does things the "right" way.

    This has already been addressed in another thread. The APR lags, and doesn't reflect the current status. We've already taken the hit (last year's news). The drop in APR was related to the period of time when a number of football players left the program in less than ideal academic standing. The last three semesters have been great.

    So while there's plenty of ammunition against Coach Hawkin's on the field, at the moment at least, the APR's are actually getting better under Hawk. It will just take a little time to register.

    I really hope your right! But why Talkins wouldn't comment on something like this is beyond me? Remember this, "Were trying to do things the right way" This is more bad Pub that we don't need, especially now.

    I believe he did comment on it... last year when the team acknowledged that the APR would require the forfeiture of schollies, and the team elected to incur the penalty LAST YEAR.

    Hawk is under his desk hiding since he now has to face UT and OU every year. Luckily his contract runs out after 2011 so it will goodbye to Hawk and hello EB.

    What do you want Hawkins to say?

    "I inherited a program with a team GPA around 2.1 and an APR in the crapper. This thing was burned to the ground. I've got the GPA up over 2.6 with 3 consecutive semester record highs and we've also been above the APR minimum line every year I've been here. Kind of hard to win consistently when you're fixing that, fixing major holes on the roster like not having a single capable quarterback here when I arrived, and your administration doesn't give you much support with academic tutoring and guidance services or offer any easy coursework that can be found at other universities in the general studies and physical education departments. But get your horns out, because this cement is about to crack! I've got two top 30 classes and a ton of gems we discovered finally hitting the upperclasses. We're going to be awesome! Ten wins in 2010! No excuses, muchachos!!!"

    :rofl2:

    Did you actually go to CU? Boulder?

    EB is persona non grata and, sadly, management will never promote him to head dog. I was still in school when he came back for games and got arrested and banned from campus. I'd love to see it but I don't believe he fits the image CU wants to project. I could see him being HC at The U .

    And comments like that won't help EB either.

    Fire Dan, get EB here now to take on the PAC12 with us and Utah!

    If I were President, and a good leader, I'd take such risks. And take the heat for them. But alas...
