    They say it has been announced on Channel 7 that Hawkins has been fired but will serve through the end of the YEAR. Note season, but until December Freaking Thirty Freaking First.

    :yeahthat: That makes no sense what-so-ever. Sounds like the local news reader ****ed up the report.

    True. But, blowing a 28 point lead in 11 minutes doesn't make any sense either. A friend of mine thought that it would somehow violate the laws of relativity. But we just saw (or if you weren't there--heard) it happen yesterday.

    I watched the second half of the newscast where he re-iterated that Hawkins is gone, just a matter of when. No where in anything I saw did he differentiate between the end of the season or year. He actually did not even say when it would be with any real conviction.

    I would note that as I write this (7:49 mountain time) there is nothing on the Channel Seven News website, nor on Google News, so I am somewhat dubious of the report on NetBuffs.

    Regarding the 31 December thing:

    Doesn't that reduce the payout requirement? I remember the end of the calander year somehow being relevent in that regard.

    Did this information come from the same credible source that said something special was supposed to happen at that F****ing press conference a couple of weeks ago.

    What a waste of time that was. :rolling_eyes:

    the post that caught my eye is on Rivals is from a poster who has a 'coaching' source... this is the source that says the coaching staff has been informed

    I've always considered our coaching staff to be pretty uninformed.

    I'm hoping the the Ch 7 piece, coupled with silence from all other outlets and sources might mean that there maybe really is something substantive going on right now behind the scenes. Wishful thinking, but maybe, just maybe...

    Fair enough. I put more credence in something on Rivals then from the other drive-byes

    I think that is correct. So, would that mean that they could not hire a replacement and give the replacement the duties of head coach in regards to recruiting, etc prior to that time? Would they have to wait before turning over the reigns to another person? I would not be surprised if Hawkins tried to milk CU for every penny he can get.

    that is just a re-hash of the stories posted last night. IF the channel 7 story is correct, they are working with newer info.

    the embers are still glowing brightly....

    Hawk's normal Monday morning meeting with Bohn will include a special guest star ... Phil DiStephino (big indicator as he never goes to these meetings)
    Have patience Buff fans as an official announcement should take place within the next 24-48 hrs.

    Yes sir!!! It happens officially today although I am certain hawk knew after OU. Well, he probably knew the first day he got to town and heard that sweet, angelic voice on 850 KOA call a Broncos game that his days were numbered.

    I don't understand keeping him till the end of the year. It makes less sense than passing in the fourth quarter with a 28 point lead.
