Cody Hawkins just is not a very good QB right now.
Please bench Cody. Please.
Not gonna happen. :sad1:
And who will you play at QB?
One of the three guys who couldn't beat Cody out? That makes a lot of sense.
I love the kid, but it's time to bench him. We should be up, bit aren't. The guy is a gamer, has heart and is a good Buff, but he isn't getting it done. I used to back him 100%, but I just can't anymore.
I think Cody is a great practice player. He knows our defense and can exploit it well (just like every one else). Send in Hansen. His only drawback is his reads, but he gives us a great weapon with his feet.
underthrow INT to close out the half.
Fact is, Hansen doesn't fit the offense we run.
if we ran an offense where the QB's feet were a weapon - he'd probably be a nice QB. But with this offense, he's a liability, not a weapon.
umm I really dont know what the fu*k he was looking at on that last play, that ball has to be at least in the endzone. Its time, I agree with you guys. I think he is even pissing Hawk off believe it or not.
This game reminds me of the ASU game from 2 years ago. ASU tries to gives us the game, we can't capitalize on ****. ASU owns us in the 2nd half
Then modify the offense so it fits Hansen.
What offense? Speedy is the only ray of sunshine.
Yeah right. They haven't done that in 4 years. They aren't going to start now.
3 picks and it's not even the 4th quarter. And this from a WV defense that had 3 take aways all season prior to this.
Face it, this offense won't be any good until we have a real qb.
Straight up truth. This is why Hansen will never be the answer. If hawk was a guy that could tailor his system to his players instead of the other way around Hansen might do some good things. At this point we have to hope against hope that Clark Evans comes out next year and blows everyone away because if not... get ready for year 4 of Cody starting. He is a massively gutsy player but he is the motor of the offense and principally responsible for why we lose twice as many games as we win. Defenses don't respect him. They know he doesn't have even half of the skill set a QB needs at this level. Heart is not enough.
Speedy is a beast already and if you give him a half decent QB to take some pressure off watch this kid be all conference. Believe. Eff that he could be an all american if he wasn't the only threat on offense.
Yep, his performance is really letting the D (who has actually been performing the last two series) down.
And why the phuck is cody only throwing the ball to Scotty?
Well give him some credit, he tried to give it to Simas twice and Simmons once.
You already know the answer to that question. It's like a Zen koan. Cause he's all we got man. Just let that percolate in your mind for a while. All.We.Got.
Since Cody is a known commodity, and has proven for certain that he can't QB at a D1 level, you absolutely have to see what Hansen has. I know about the dustup, but next week and from here forward, Hansen should play the rest of this season.
Hey I'm with you but don't hold your breath.
You're right - having no feet, no receptions except McKnight, and lots of INTs is much better. Leave Cody in, at least other programs will feel sorry for us.
Yeah, I'm with you.
At least Hansen gives opposing coaches something to worry about.
Not from the bench he doesn't.
That's kind of the point, bro.
The point is - he isn't going to phucking play. Get it through your head.
The announcers on espn (including CU alum Chris Fowler) can't help but say what a $hit qb we've got. Awesome.
Yes, it's beyond obvious that nepotism is running wild in Boulder. That doesn't make it right or mean that we should all shut up and be happy about it.
It's f*cked up to call him sh*t. He's a warrior. He's not a good quarterback but he's the best we have.
