    Associate Athletic Department and Sports Information Director Dave Plati confirmed today that Colorado Football coach Dan Hawkins, through representatives, is currently seeking revision of his contract to consider moral victories in assessing performance toward contract incentives and his continued job as coach of the Buffaloes. Currently, his contract calls for specific additional payments for certain goals met, mostly as number of games won. However, Hawkins is seeking revision to allow for moral victories to be considered as actual victories.

    On condition of anonymity, one of Hawkin’s representatives stated that the coach’s current overall record of 18-34 could, with the requested revision, be altered to about .500, or 26-26.

    “In keeping with Hawk’s emphasis on personal development and effort, we believe moral victories are just as important as actual victories on the field. Also, numerous actual defeats occurred just because of a few bad bounces, a call here or there, things totally out of Hawk’s control. Under these circumstances, it frankly isn’t fair to judge him based upon on-the-field results. For these reasons, we contend moral victories should count.”

    I think this is a perfectly valid argument. At the same time though we should consider moral loses like the escape against Eastern Washington and some other wins that should have been significantly better. At the same time certain loses should count double like getting pounded by 30+ points against some opponents where the Buffs basically didn't show up (Toledo, Mizzouri, Missouri again, Cal, CSU, etc.)

    I don't believe this is real. It can't be.

    If for some reason it is (and again, I don't believe this is real) it would certainly explain the problem.

    I'm not one to call for a "win at all costs", and I recognize that the broader development of our student athletes is paramount.

    But at the end of the day, a W is a W and an L is an L, and to characterize them as anything else is absolute bull****. In fact, to characterize them as anything else is a disservice to the sport, and begging for more L's.

    Not real.

    It's not real. Didn't believe it for one second. Re-read the article and you'll see.

    Not real, but not completely out of the realm of possibility, either. I mean seriously, couldn't you see Hawkins trying something like this?

    As soon as I read "Dave Plati confirmed" I knew it was a fake.

    Dave would not have dignified the question with a response.

    I could tell the story was not satire, but the truth.

    If it were fake, there would be atleast on hacky sack or zen reference.

    I watched the after game broadcast of the 5th down and the ABC commentators had actually said that Dave Plati had already confirmed that there was 5 downs on that last series. I was surprised that he would not plead ignorance until it was reviewed, but he made the confirmation-- I beleive even before they brought the teams out for the extra point try.

    I was going 'WTF' until I saw the 'news source'. Funny stuff.

    That was a bit of work using the mod tools to make this look like an actual RSS bot news thread. Hope you guys enjoyed it.
