    this game friday is big. really big. and, i don't know if our Buffs have the horses to win it.

    a loss would send a lot of the fan base into full meltdown.

    perspective will be important if that happens. it is very unlikely that hawkins will be fired this year, even if CU loses badly to the fuskers. so, keep that in mind. as i posted in another thread, i believe hawkins will get one more year here. i have my head around that. i am good with it. there is no point in freaking out now.

    the number of injuries that this team sustained are going to give the staff a pass for the year. you can disagree with this all you want, but i think they are going to get a "get out of jail free" card because of the rough year our Buffs have had on the injury front.

    basically, next year, the team is going to need to dramatically outperform expectations for this staff to survive.

    in the interim, we might as well all hold on for a wild ride.

    and, hell, the fuskers aren't unbeatable. the game looks stacked against CU but you never know.

    a win and a bowl invitation and this season looks and feels a whole lot better, especially considering all the challenges.

    whatever happens, i hope we can keep it relatively civil here, particularly about the players. they are doing their best. some of them were never expected to be starters and others are playing long before they were projected to be ready to play. but, they are all Buffs and doing what they can.

    like everyone, i am not happy about the way things have gone in the hawkins era, but i think the guy probably deserves one more year. and i hope for the best, as always.

    GO BUFFS!

    The huskers can be beaten..their weakness is their defensive secondary..but the buffs need a qb that can stretch them deep. I think Hansen provides the best option this Friday.

    The buffs defense matches up pretty well in stopping the run...and the huskers will try to control the clock with the running and short passing game in order to minimize the amount of time their defense is on the field.

    The huskers probably will have more talent on the field due to injuries, etc......but special teams can make a difference, along with winning the turnovers.

    gee, i wonder who's heads your rational thought will just sail right over. the meltdown is coming (probably but, hopefully not) and the usual suspects will be loud and proud with thier irrational attitudes. should be fun. :lol:

    Does Hansen figure to get any playing time? I could see him watching the whole game from the sideline, but I've said that before and been wrong, so...

    There is a 0% chance that Hawkins will be fired after this season. It is simply not a realistic option at this point (and it shouldn't be).

    Good post overall. I am hoping the staff pleasantly surprises me on Friday. Two weeks to prepare will hopefully allow the staff to put together a coherent gameplan on offense. We need to play with a sense of urgency from the opening kickoff to the final whistle. NU is not unbeatable.

    And make no mistake, I will be disappointed if we finish with our third straight losing record.

    Probably depends on how C-Hawk plays. I thought Cody played pretty well against OSU.

    There is zero chance that Hawk will be fired in the next three seasons, unless we go 0-36.

    I think this game could be close and next year if the injury bug will stay off your a$$ you should have one hell of a team.:smile:
