    I do believe Hawkins has had plenty of time to turn this program around, but if he goes, then what candidates are out there? I would like to see a list from everyone that wants Hawkins gone. I just don't know who the next coach should be. I do think that this year the buffs can get to a bowl game. I was a big fan of the Hawkins hire and still think there is a slight chance he can turn things around. I would like a list of five legit candidates from those who believe he should have gone last year. I do believe that the next coach must be a big time recruiter because i think the last few losing seasons have the cupboards going bare.

    Who was Bohn planning on bringing in here? I think I heard a rumor of some coach he was ready to bring in once he fired Hawkins. The Temple coach, No?

    Do not attempt to change the subject. We are obsessing about getting / not getting invited to the PAC 10 / PAC 16.

    This topic is tabled indefinitely until Chip Brown apologizes and Mike Bohn makes a statement to Channel 4.

    Pretty interesting to come in here and demand that every person who wanted to fire Hawkins must come up with a list of candidates for you on your first post. :huh:

    Not bad.

    I'm reserving judgment until I have time to look at what coaches with west coast ties are available...

    Given the new Texas flavor of the PAC 16 East, am I the only one who thinks we may have a pirate in our future? Not saying that's the way I'd go but it might help build a rivalry with Texas Tech awfully quick.

    I think everyoen at allbuffs should have a ping-pong ball, bohn picks it and there is your new coach.

    I am just saying, it's really easy to say that Hawkins doesn't work. Who does? What makes your candidate right for CU. I am not trying to take away from the expansion talk. I have worn myself out searching for news about the expansion. I hope that CU is a member of the pac 10 or stays in the big 12. I don't care which as long as we start winning again.

    We can't pick a new coach until we know what happens with expansion.

    If we land in the PAC we can greatly expand our coaching search due to the increased tv $ that we will end up getting.

    If we land in the MWC we can start our coaching search by interviewing high school assistant head coaches from teams that play 8 man football. If we end up in the MWC the HC job will pay $17.50/hour plus free use of the weight room/showers, and an unlimited meal plan that can be used at any of the campus dining halls.

    wildcard sleeper coach for cheap pick: Larry Fedora

    loved his O at OSU, has Texas ties, Big XII ties, ties in the talent-rich south....and spent a year ar AFA as QB coach.

    you know what, if we join the Pac and Hawk does indeed earn a termination that actually happens.....in the big view, maybe keeping Hawk the extra year works in our advantage....since with newly minted Pac money we are in a different hiring bracket money-wise than last November, maybe.

    Fedora would be a GREAT choice. Saw him up close down here and he's a real leader of men and smart coach.

    Probably depends very much if the athletic budget is in the neighborhood of $20 million or $8 million.

    In other words, what conference are we in?

    I never thought that I would say this, but maybe, just maybe, the decision to retain Hawk will work out in CU's favor. I would have to think that CU looks more attractive to the coaching pool with a move to the Pac.
