Wins against OU, NU, TT, CSU in 2007 Beat WVU in 2008 The 2006 team that was competitive in defeat Recruiting efforts: Sealed the state boarder with Mohler, Miller, Cunningham. Picked up blue chips like Scott & Polk and a steal with Stewart. There is a bunch of Hawk's talent sitting on the bench due to RS, injury or academics. I want to see what the coaches can do with MTM, Simas, Miller, Polk, and the others. Bohn/Hawkins have better community & media relations than Thorp/Barnett. The scandal is behind the school, the practice bubble is up, Folsom is filling up. Cons Montana State Mizzou Inability to win on the road against B12 north rivals. Up until Mizzou, CU could go head to head with anybody. The losses to ranked teams like Georgia, FSU, Alabama and KU were at least competitive, and showed a lot of heart. This Mizzou game was demoralizing and embarassing. I will reserve judgement on Hawk and his coaches based on 1) how the team rebounds, and 2) based on beating Texas in Austin in 2009. I expect that the Buffs are better than a .500 club. I expect CU to be competitive in the north. I expect CU to win the B12 and show up in a BCS bowl on or before 2011. To pull the rug out from Hawkins and his coaches infront of his recruits is just an other way of extending the program's mediocrity. I'd rather see how this team and coaching staff responds to a once every three year disaster.
