Dan hawkins has been coaching on hope for 4 years.
Hope is not a course of action.
Have been trying to explain this to my kids lately.
Wishing is not the same as doing.
Wanting something to happen is not the same as taking action to make it happen.
Along with my actual kids, the other "kids" I got to say it to everyday were the 19-21 year olds that made up my navigation team on my last boat. Thank goodness they finally figured it out before our first underway when we took a submarine that drafted 35 feet over a spot that had a depth of 37 feet on the chart. Normally that is to be avoided, but we literally had nowhere else to go when transiting in/out of Bremerton, WA.
I find it to be a very useful phrase in a lot of situations.
eHarmony has a compatibility questionaire that is not based on knowledge or hope, but a unique patened algorhythm.
Us NU fans go with Nowledge.
Obama goes with hope.
And don't forget CHANGE! :rofl2:
If you're a good leader, you make decisions once you have 40-60% of the information. Then you go with your gut. Beyond that is analysis paralysis leading to missed opportunities.
Us outsiders can only "hope" that he has added more "knowledge" since his first football HC hiring.
I am certain that options have been explored and feelers have been sent out prior to Bohn and DiStefano committing themselves to that action.
I really hope that they limit the buyout provisions on the next contract and any extension, no matter how "rosy" things look. It is complete negligence to pay $3 million+ twice in a row to buyout head football coaches, when we have alot of facilities and programs that could use those funds (even if they are private donations, those donors "might" have donated to those other uses).
I still hold out hope that Hawkins will see the writing on the wall, work out a deal with Bohn that he will resign, immediately take the UNLV or San Jose State job and his "Boise" staff with him, and we can wish him the best while we finish the search for a new HC.
You go with knowledge, and then you hope. Remember Hawkins looked like a great hire 4 years ago.
Yep I agree, and we will never really know the details of the interview or what Hawk's plan for success was that he presented to Bohn. Maybe Hawk has done everything he proposed, but it just didn't work.
In any case, Bohn had not been at the university very long at the time of the Barnett firing and replacement search.
Hopefully through that process and the four years since, he has a much better knowledge base about what it will take for the next HC to be successful at CU.
Not only should Bohn be held accountable for hiring; he also is responsible for developing the talent he has brought on board.
What has Bohn done over the past four years to help develop Hawkins?
I have no way of knowing if he did or didn't.
It does seem obvious that from the start of the season, Bohn must have been on Hawk about his relationship with the press and how that was a vital part of representing the university.
Maybe Hawk didn't listen to his attempts to "develop" him. Those are definitely things that rarely ever see the public eye, until someone writes an autobiography.
