i want to be happy about the prospect of danny not being around anymore but, i cant. first. i dont think he is a bad person. i believe he is a good man. he is just a guy who is in over his head. he has taken a lot of heat and for the on the field performances, its deserved. he does not deserve everything he has gotten and i will toss my hat in the ring of being personal at times. fair is fair. that was not really needed. i believe he did do his best. he brought in a couple of good to great recruiting classes. he did that because he cared. now.... to the point. i feel bad. not only for dan (to a point) and his wife. they definitly didnt want any of this when he took this job. i really feel for his wife. but, i really feel for the kids. so many of them came to the U of Colorado with such great potential. great talent. talent that was wasted year over year. either by a lack of ability from the coaching staff to develop the talent, to putting the kids into a position to win. a lot of those kids could have chosen other schools and had much more productive and rewarding careers for thier college experience. but, they chose the Buffs. as the season winds down. lets make sure that we understand that the kids are doing what they can with what they have. what is going to happen with the coaches will happen. but, we want these kids involved in the program for years to come because they are Buffs!!! dan didnt work out. he is not a bad person. he brought a lot of good and talented kids to boulder. kids that did what they could with what they were given. that includes cody. i hope that CU and Dan part ways and both are better off for it. i hope that the kids get a good life lesson from all of this and get a coach who will allow them to reach thier full potential and make CU a contender again. im not happy about any of it. i feel for the hawkins family and i feel for the kids that have spent the last 2 to 5 years with him. i hope dan lands on his feet and i hope the U of Colorado comes back stronger for this experience and that the kids learn a whole **** load about how the real world works. everyone will be better off for it. i thougt all of that on my way to bet a burg..... damnit!!!! burrito. most of all, the kids deserve a chance at winning and a coach who can develope thier potential to its fullest extent and put them in a position to win so they get the most out of thier time at the U of Colorado.
