We bring back Mac and a bowl game is still possible and the 2011 recruiting class can be salvaged.
Even Woelk is now advocating a coaching change.
He even went so far as to suggest that it might be necessary to act sooner (as in during the season) rather than later to fire Hawkins.
I am a sooner fan myself. And no, not a Boomer Sooner fan, just a 'the sooner CU is rid of the rotting stink of Hawkins' the better. Sorry, but I knew that if CU beat Baylor then we almost certaily would be stuck with Hawk for the whole season. I want him gone Monday afternoon. (sooner--but it takes time to set up the press conference).
I thought there were financial implications if he were officially fired befor Jan 1st, right?
There is no reason to keep Hawkins around. He is dead man walking, every recruit know that he is gone. Get rid of him and see if something positive can't happen for the rest of the season.
While I appreciate the optimism for a bowl game I think, at this point, CU needs to start looking towards salvaging a recruiting class and building a foundation for the PAC. It's obvious at this point that Hawk has checked out and is on coaching cruise control which is doing nothing but hurting this team. I think we need to consider ourselves fortunate for any additional win this year.
How fast can we get someone to make a zombie picture that looks like D2D with the creepy halloween type font saying 'Dead man walking'? That would be great to wear to the next game. To give to D2D's paper boy so he can wear it every day. To the sutdents to wear around the campus (and Bohn gets one overnighted to him).
As long as it is powder blue.
If anything a bowl game would be nice as the payout would help fund the Hawkins buyout...
With the possibility of losing out the rest of the year and the fans backlash against Hawkins, the greater financial impact could be in KEEPING Hawkins for the rest of the season.
Coach Mac would put butts in seats and probably encourage alumni donations to rally around the program.
Even if the result on the field is the same for the rest of the season, the direction of the program would certainly be heading in the right direction.
Coach Hawkins has another great chance to beat a hapless South team, this time, Texas Tech with their lost-in-offense-power-wilderness coach, that defensive genius, Tammy Tuberville. Talk about a wuss-monger. Tub's seen his offense explode out against two opponents, then pulls his head in like a frightened turtle and cripple his plays with a run-only option.
With all this great altitude eroding teams right and left, and our fantastic homefield advantage with Coach Hawks' fervent supporters, I have faith we can see another sure-fired guaranteed win.
For one of these teams. Coach Hawks gives me faith.
(Realistically, I'm more concerned about what prospects and their HS coaches are getting - or aren't - from Coach Hawk and his staff.)
