    Q: "What are you thoughts on the 2 and 1 start to the season?"

    A: "Well, there's always going to be a little of "Well, we really road-graded Hawai'i" or "We were down 31-0 at the half at Cal" but you try to look at the whole thing and say "Hey we're 2 and 1." When you have alot of young guys playing and no one coaching them, you know you're never too far from having the opportunity to win a football game, but you also are never far away from getting gashed a little. Then you look around after four plus years and say "Has it been 2 games in a row or 3 where our first play was a penalty?" So there's always going to be some of those variations."

    Q: "How did you cope with CU's 52-7 loss to Cal?"

    A: "I think you kind of look around and say "Am I numb because this has happened alot before?" or "Is it the 10 beers I had?" I think you can look at the entirety of the game and see about 10 drinks that, if you hadn't have had, you wouldn't necessarily be numb after the game. So you try and work out some things and eventually you go, "****, we just got ****ing killed again, how has the program fallen so far?" and there's that side too, so maybe you have some more beverages right there, maybe you mix them up."

    Q: "But you are optimistic about the Buffs chances against Georgia?"

    A: "Well, and you know what? That's awesome. You look around and you go, "Georgia is going through alot of the same fire right now that we have. You look at their games, and they can't get on track right now, you know, they have a penalty here, then they have a turnover there, but they're really close to figuring it out. So you hope that maybe you get a play here or a play there and have some fun and maybe win the game."

    Q: "Is your wife supportive of you during CU games?"

    A: "Well, she would never say anything bad, but I know she'll be nervous during the game because she'll be hosting a dinner party because that's when she scheduled the deal without talking to me. But you try to watch maybe the start of the game, pause the DVR and try to engage the party guests a little. You get in there and you start to watch the whole party unfold and you see things start to go a little, and you go "****" the game is going on right now and you sneak away and press play on the DVR. The thing is pretty cool because you don't have to watch the game live, you can watch it later if that's what your deal is. Then your wife comes in and goes, "You're watching the ****ing game?" and then you have to look at the game from kind of a multi-angle position the rest of the party."

    Dude, awesome again.

    Had me rolling.

    And just so I'm clear on the last bit--Hawk is planning on attending a dinner party during the game, but hoping to get updates?

    Thanks - actually that's just me speaking in Hawk tongue, I'm the one w/ the dinner party (of which I was not consulted on) going on during the game with a bunch of folks who could care less about college football, the one driven to drink by the Buffs, etc. Sorry if that was unclear - maybe alot of people didn't get it :smile2:

    Really? How about the Hawk Presser you did before? Was that you or Hawk talking? Because the thought of Hawk hitting the Everclear to cope with losses is what had me rolling. Maybe this stuff isn't so funny after all.

    I'm kidding. Good stuff as always.

    I think you're talking about this fake press conference - yeah, that was me too, I got inspired because the Buffs were losing @ Texas and my wife, who walked in and saw one play - the Cody pick 6 - then asked me, "Why is the coach still playing his son?" After some time of unresponsiveness, all I could do was my Hawk impression, as laughter is the best medicine. Hope I don't have to give back my votes for thread of the year '09!

    I always viewed that as Hawk's voice in that press conference. And then I imagine Misti walking approaching the coach and asking him while he's still playing Cody. And I also imagined him drinking grain alcohol after, or possibly during the game.

    Great stuff no matter who's perspective it's written in. There's a lot of Hawk speak on the boards, but you really capture the incompleteness of his thoughts, sprinkled with random optimism, the best.
