    Take a look. Sums it up pretty well. Also sent this to Bohn and DiStefano

    Mike and Phil,

    I wanted to pass along to you an article that sums up the feelings of most Buff Fans. I cannot imagine that the information is new to you or it is not something that you have already considered, but I thought it was the best summation of what every CU Football Fan is now working through. Coach Hawkins needs to watch his fellow coach from up the road in Ft Collins. His press conference after the loss to Wyoming was a class act where he accepted blame and went as far as saying he did not coach well this last year. Coach Hawkins (and in all honesty the two of you) need to stop talking about a fantastic GPA and players staying out of trouble to try and take the focus off of Coach Hawkins abysimal won loss record. Too many other institutions perform these simple expected tasks and produce on the field.

    As the article states below, the program was not burned to the ground 4 years ago. Coach Hawkins is trying to sell something that just is not true and most of the fan base sees through it. I know we are stuck with Coach Hawkins (and I mean stuck) for another season. If he is to win people back to his side, he needs to start being honest and stop being arrogant with the fans and the media. He owns the results and they are not good. If he fails to do this, it will be a long year next year for the team, Fans, Coach Hawkins, and both of you. The questions and pressure are only going to increase.

    By the way, as coach Hawkins said, how else can I help? I give as much as my budget will allow, attand all home games and 1-2 road games a season. I have not missed a bowl game. How else does he want us to help? Please get back to me on this one.

    Sincerely,

    :lol: good read. It seems like a lot of the local media are starting to turn on Hawk. Now not only are the fans tired of his zen philosophy, but the media seems to be too. Hopefully he learns from it and can say the right things; right things not being competitive in the Big 12 North, or hoping to compete for a bowl game, those are the wrong things.
