    After winning 4 Big 12 north titles in five years, why can't he fire Hawkins for 5 losing seasons in 5 years?:huh:

    Agree. 52-45 KU is worse than 70-3 Texas IMO. That Texas team was a juggernaut, and this KU team is the polar opposite of that (although, KU gets credit for not quitting, unlike Hawk and his cronies)

    Damm good question. Of course we all know the school was dying a for a halfway-decent reason to fire Barnett and it landed in their lap with 70-3. But now Bohn has lost his moxie and won't fire this sorry excuse for a coach. Hawkins must have pictures, that's all I can think.

    Mike Bohn "checked out" last year when his decision to fire the asshat d2d was overruled. He no longer cares.

    I gotta think that Bohn cannot take a **** without getting approval from Destuffadoosh and Benson....

    Maybe "Paycheck" Danny should come out and say, "Goodman is a terrible kicker." That seemed to get GB suspended...and ultimately fired.

    This is now all on Bohn. Bohn is the jackwad that is supposed to be in charge. This all happened because of decisions Bohn made. The football program is worse off today than before Mike Bohn was hired.

    he's gone, the lack of any announcement is strictly cosmetic at this point. let Hawk absorb all the subsequent losses, and he's hung himself. while it would be gratifying to have the termination done with and public "search" announcements etc......patience my fellow Buffs.

    The guys has probably gotten 20,000 emails in the last 24 hours, I'm sure you're not alone. I'd rather he be "dealing" with the coaching situation than returning emails from upset fans personally.

    I have a hard time believing that those 25 people could generate 20,000 emails in 24 hours.

    I disagree. Bohn / CU need to be proactive, not hiding in the ivory tower. The major news media is putting out that the reason Hawkins hasn't been fired is because Cody Hawkins is the only available QB on the team. This will not end well for Cody.

    Bohn needs to get out and make a public statement.

    I think there is more to this than only being Bohn's call. I might be crazy but something stinks here.

    Not saying he was, just hoping it's on his agenda today - if he taking time to respond to pissed off fan email that's a bad sign IMO.

    Disagree, his lack of doing anything and reluctance to fire him just sends the wrong message to fans and recruits. He looks like an AD who is being walked over by a coach and others. He will lose more fans and you think this is good for recruiting? It's a slap in the face to CU fans. It leaves a message that CU isn't that interested in a winning program. That's a great attitude to send when you are about to join the pac 10.

    So he fires him after the nebraska game, wow, real balls there Bohn. That's showing everyone how serious you are about winning athletics. If everyone knows he's done after the nebraska game, why not announce it? Everyone knows, what are waiting for? He's out so say he's out. Just more of the same cluster **** that is CU athletics under Mike Bohn.

    It's too bad that our AD is letting others decide how to do his job.

    Because the admin had it in for Barnett and was just waiting for an excuse to can his ass. The same rules do not apply to Hawkins. Otherwise he'd have been gone last year or possibly sooner.

    ---------- what the ****??? ----------

    I'm left to wonder, with Bohn's contract being expired, that he is sitting on signing his renewal. Perhaps he's holding out for control of the situation over DiStefanos and Bensons head. Perhaps hes waiting to see what DiStefano and Benson tell him to do about Hawkins before signing up again.

    It would work better if he called him a girl.

    See, this post here is spot on. I really don't understand why some on here are completely fine with Bohn waiting until the end of the season when it's gonna happen. If it was still undecided or if there there was a chance he could save his job, then fine, but that's clearly not the case.

    Why, because he is not doing it your way? I would love to see Hawk gone as well but the impact to recruiting is what you are making it. Does not matter in reality. It is not impacting the coaching search. No coach with a current position is going to be able to officially talk to us for weeks anyway. The hire is what is going to impact recruiting. Not when they fire the coach. Not handling the way MN did may even put us in a better position with some coaches. Need to hold judgement on Bohn until the final scene plays out in this drama.

    MY way? Do you read and listen what's going on around you? MY way? There are MANY who think he's not doing it MY way. You still don't get it. SAY he's gone and won't be back next season but will coach the rest of the season. Do you understand what I'm saying? How is saying dan is gone when EVERYONE KNOWS he's gone going to hurt anything?

    MY way , too damn funny...

    I get it. Hawk will be gone by the end of the season. At that point we will hire a new coach and move on. That will impact how recruiting the small class we need will go. Firing him now will not impact any of those results. You cannot officially talk to coaches now. You cannot sign recruits today. You do not want anything else but a firing today and that is your way. Are there others who agree with you, absolutely. Saying Bohn is not doing his job though is ridiculous. You have not idea what is going on behind the scenes and that is also the way it should be.

    You say I do not get it, pot meet kettle. Will I be upset if it is announced today or tomorrow that Hawk is gone. No. Will it ruin my week if he is not fired. No. It will be done and we will move on. It needs to be done no later than the day after NU and a new coach needs to be in place 1st or early second week of Dec. That really is all that needs to happen.

    Can we agree on just this one thing on Allbuffs, please? Just one thing only:

    Henceforth, when we refer to a plan that involves firing Coach Hawkins immediately, can we please call it "the Buffsyko plan"? Thanks in advance...

    EDIT: Or any plan which includes making an immediate announcement for later dismissal. Thanks again.

    Good Lord you do not get it. I did not say at any point in my post for bohn to fire hawk today. I SAID, ANNOUNCE HE WILL NOT RETURN NEXT SEASON and let hime COACH THE FINAL 3 GAMES.

    So, again, just say it. Do you understand now?

    ---------- Post added at 02:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:45 PM ----------

    Check the board, it's many peoples plan but one problem....I said announce dan won't be returning in 2011 and that he'll coach the last 3 games. People seem to have a hard time with this...amazing.
