I guess keeping players eligible isn't a "little thing"

    So why bother? We all know that Hawk only works on little things.

    dude we get it, Hawk is a moron and you want us in a league that doesn't involve texas. Anything else you'd lie to repeat ad nauseam?

    This x 100000000000000000

    it's like Timbuff and his hick comments or Slade mentioning OU in nearly every post or Syko wanting DTs. Too repetitive for my taste and lacks originality.

    Don't forget me and McBonaparte. :lol:

    Although after the screwing they're trying to give Doom, I don't know if that guy has any supporters left.

    Here's the deal - I hate getting bullsh*tted. I hate it. I can put up with a lot of stuff, but I can't tolerate being lied to. I feel like Hawk has been lying to all of us for the last four years. Now, every time I see additional evidence of the same, I feel the obligation to point it out.

    I'll do my best to come up with a more original critique of Hawks idiocy going forward.

    I don't think Hawk has lied to us. I think he didn't know what he was getting into when he came here. He had a lot of confidence in his abilities when he got here, and he isn't the coach that we or he all thought he would be. Happens a lot in sports. Personally I agree with abs and HF, your constant ranting about Hawkins is old and there is nothing that your bitching will really do about it. We get it, you don't like him.

    Honestly, I understand your frustration and feel the same way it seems you do. It has been a depressing run with Hawk at the helm. I lost all confidence in Hawk's ability long ago... Anymore, I become angry just about every time he opens his mouth.

    However, given some changes and time, I know the Buffs will be back on top again. I am certain of it. Unfortunately, the changes we desire will not occur in the time frame so many of us desire. I share in your grief and frustration, along with a great many other Buff Alums and fans.

    On a lighter note, I do believe we will be starting PAC 12 play with a new coach. It will be a new beginning for the Buffs.

    I LOVE CU Football and look forward to the sun shining on us once again. I fully expect we will get out there and kick some PAC ass in 2012.

    Until then, hang in there Sacky!

    What are we upset about this time? That Simmons didn't get enough credits in the spring while he was dealing with his custody battle?

    Basically, he needs the NCAA to grant a waiver so that he can apply 9 credits from summer school instead of only 6. Who knows if it will happen, but it looks likely. Not a grade issue at all.

    I am a bit frustrated that our academic support wasn't more on top of this, though.

    As far as Hawk is concerned... he just needs to flippin' win or get out of town.

    Joe Silipo stealing a bike and being suspended indefinitely is what set me off this time. It seems like it's something new every day. Now we're beyond losing high rated recruits and are losing lunchpail guys who have their horns out. I mean hey, it's OK to lose guys like Simmons, Simas, Scott, Sumler, Smith, Maiva, etc. But when you start losing your lunchpail guys, that's serious.:rolling_eyes:

    Maybe Hawk is just trying to get rid of all the kids on the team whose last name starts with "S".

    Watch out Michael Sipili!!!!

    Sacky, re-read the article. He isn't suspended indefinitely. He is suspended for the summer.

    Incidentally he's also still "eligible" but that is semantics.

    No worries sackman. Say what you want when you want and don't let anyone zip your lip for you. I more than feel your pain. The only way I deal with it is seen in the title of this book. I'm waiting to wake up someday.

    When I first saw the report, I thought it was Sipili and flipped out. :lol:

    Then I re-read it, saw that it was a walk on snapper who struggled in the spring and I expect to get beaten out in the fall by Ryan Iverson... and it became a big "meh" in my mind. 21-year olds do stupid stuff.

    I wish they'd stop trying to sell it in the press that our football team is a bunch of choir boys. They're not. And I don't want them to be. Team GPA is up. Partially due to a major investment in academic support and partially due to emphasizing it. But as long as you've got a collection of 17-22 year old guys who are really good at a violent sport, you're going to have some problems. As long as we don't recruit felons (or take felon transfers), I could not care less. As long as I don't have to worry about a football player assaulting me or my family around Boulder, then I'm fine with the job our program is doing on the citizenship front.

    (And, sacky, if I'm understanding you right - it's this b.s. hypocrisy of how they've tried to sell this that's pissing you off. I actually agree with you on that 100%.)

    I have an uncontrollable urge to post a Melisa Miller picture.

    [​IMG]

    It was either that, or repeat the suggestion that CSU should merge with CU and create a super-sized contender. Does anyone want to hear how awsome Lubbock is on game day?

    Maybe Rino will lecture Snow about a real job is required to have a valid opinion.
    And Snow can talk about how hypocritical Junction is.
    And Junction can, I don't know, post for the sake of posting.
    How are those Rockies doing, DBT?

    More soccer threads please. You know who you are.

    Wally, finish this up with another story that ties together personal humiliation and poop (or self abuse).


    The offseason is brutal.

    It's that, and the fact that Hawk is running around asking people "who likes cheating?" as if to imply that everybody who wins must be cheating, and because he's losing, that proves he's "doing it right". It's so obvious to me that the guy is just nothing more than a bullsh*t artist. As I said, I absolutely HATE getting bullsh*tted. It pisses me off no end. It's insulting to me - and it's hard to insult me. When I see a bullsh*t artist, I want to expose him at every opportunity. I don't write for the Post or the Camera or the Times Call, so my only forum is here.
    It's not so much that I think he sucks. Hell, we ALL think he sucks. That's not up for debate. To use an example from politics - it's like when my congresswoman tries to tell me how great the healthcare bill is. I know for damn sure it's a piece of garbage. Don't insult me by telling me it's going to do all this wonderful stuff and solve all these problems. I know better. I'm not that damn stupid. And when somebody like Hawk tries to tell me that he's doing things the right way and that this thing is gonna pop and it's all about working on the little things, I just lose it. Don't tell me that. Tell me you recognize the problem and you have a plan for correcting it.

    gah. OK. I'm done... for now.
