All appropriate words used to describe CU football head coach Dan Hawkins’ comment last week, “10 wins and no excuses,” in reference to the upcoming 2009 season. Those throughout the country may have found this comical, following a 5-7 season, thought by many to be a disappointment. But those close to the organization know that the Buffs are close to getting over that hump to becoming one of the top caliber teams in college football.
