    Hawk's tweet: "Got some great players committed to be Buffs next year! Just a few spots left"......

    We're standing at 11 and I figure we will take 24 or so. What???????

    Please tell me we aren't harboring a bunch of silent commits again. COMMIT!!!!

    It wouldn't surprise me if there are a couple the services don't know about. On top of that, there's a good chance some of the guys coming for their official visit are doing so in order to commit (and the coaches know that).

    So more than a few, but probably not the dozen or so slots we were figuring. I'm sure Hawk's just trying to get a positive message out to the fan base while also putting a bit of pressure on the fence sitters we're after.

    probably a few walk ons getting scollies. I have been real dissapointed with the recruiting sites this year. The coverage has really gone to crap IMO.

    That's great. The University of Colorado is a fantastic place to play football and attend school.

    Kids from all over the country pay big bucks to attend school in Boulder. Rather, their parents do.

    Well, you can pretty much throw that 24-player figure out. My guess is closer to 20, maybe even less.

    That's where the math's leading me, too. We're going to have over 60 guys on scholarship come NSD, possibly as many as 65 if Zion Babb enrolls as a transfer in January.

    Cryptically ... yes, I believe there are a few, uh, very interesting names out there who plan to be buffs.

    Now, don't you feel ever so much better knowing that?:smile2:

    I was checking out the ku board. From some of the comments I read, it sounds like they have lost some recruits over the Mangino thing. Now I wonder if any of those kids were recruited by CU?

    I guess CU is so broke we can't afford 25 scholarships a year...

    KU recruits who are wavering - at least thinking about options:

    Andrew Turzilli - WR
    [FONT=&quot]

    Geneo Grissom DE
    Has scheduled a trip to LSU.

    [/FONT]
    Jeremiah Edwards DT
    “Well, I'm going to still stay with Kansas if they keep my recruiting coach (Beaty) and my position coach (Tom Sims)," Edwards said.
    Oddly enough, KU has a few commits who were previously committed elsewhere, but switched to Kansas during the season:

    Keeston Terry (was ****er)
    Trayvon Henry (was a sooner)
    Jaqwaylin Arps (was Texas Tech)

    Hawk has done a good job poaching from fired coaches

    Speculation. There was a Rivals article in which he talked us up as being the option at the forefront, but he was still open to looking around. No news in the past couple weeks.

    "Interesting names?" Mister Jones is certainly an interesting name. There, saved you a Rivals subscription.

    The less recruits this year the better. That way it gives the next coach more options and the ability to restock with his own guys a bit faster. I just hope he doesn't pull a Patton and screw the next guy.

    Last I checked, Hawkins' contract runs through 2012 and we need to sign over 20 to get to the 85 max. There is absolutely no reason to think that Hawkins won't be the coach for the next 3 seasons (at least) except for the internet posts of a good number of CU fans and some rumor mongering web sites that had bad information.

    If you want to debate this, let's take it to the CU Football forum. :smile:

    Just a few spots left.. that doesn't excite me. Has Hawk ever said what his philosophy was regarding open scholarships? Does he prefer leaving a few open for walk-ons and such?

    Last I checked, I should not be posting crap like this in the recruiting forum. I apologize to the board.

    Dude there's like one rule about negativity on this site, it can't be posted in the recruiting forum. Go bump 15 other Hawk sucks threads in the football forum or go for broke in the smack forum with a real doozy.
