    he doesn't have to tamper, unfortunately. he just has to wait around while our crack staff steps on its own swingin' richards, over and over and over.

    My opinion only. Scott is leaving for one reason only. J-Fly left. The pulled this in HS as well. When Josh left there was no doubt Scott was not long for CU for me.

    Personally don't see it as that big of a loss from an on the field performance issue. It also goes to show the DS has been full of it for months, when he was saying he would not be leaving because Josh left.

    Best of luck. Hope it works out for him. I am only concerned about those players who bleed black and gold and are willing to put it all on the line for their team. DS appeared to do neither while he was here.

    I mean this with all due respect chilly, but take the blinders off moron. Scott would be happily entrenched at running back if the fool known as Hawk put him on the field and allowed him to play ball. This is a big loss because if you watched D Scott he was special, he just never had a realistic opportunity to show it. He didn't "bring his lunch pail and hard hat" like Hawk wanted and was shown the bench. It is also a big loss, because this is now the second #1, and third superstar running back to leave Colorado to go elsewhere in the last decade. I think Scott bled black and gold, but Hawk betrayed him.

    :lol: Your only concern is dan hawkins and hoping he gets treated well. You could care less about the players. Dan is GOD and you think this clueless guy deserves to be here another year. Hawk is done at CU, and if the rumors are true about the other possibe transfers, it should be today.

    Great, hawk gets fired and we lose 4-5 of our top recruits from the past 1-2 years and the next coach has less talent to work with. Hawk has destroyed this program in just 4 years.

    Had the coaches handled the DS situation anywhere close to the right way, he would still be here.

    When he arrived last year, if he was out of shape, didn't know the plays, whatever, they should have used the RS right away. Instead they spend the entire year giving him 2-3 plays a game.

    This year all off season we hear that power run game is going to be the rule. DS gets 2 plays vs CSU and end of the game Juicebox says he was "nicked up", other coaches say he didn't play because of the blowout.

    I don't blame DS on bit for leaving, and leaving right now. Last year was full of excuses for why he did or didn't play, and after the first game this year the coaches were back with lame excuses on why he didn't play.

    We will never know what type of RB he could have been at CU. I hope he goes to UCLA and tears it up.

    First off there are no blinders. Darell Scott is not our best running back period. I don't give flying rats ass what he did in high school and how many stars he came to town with.

    He did not get it done on the field while at CU. His 5* potential never showed up. The Toledo game was the exception to the rule, and who has NOT run well against Toledo. DS was something special in High School not at Colorado. I view this no differently than I did Houston leaving the program.

    I have nothing against DS and I will say it again, I hope it works out for him. Maybe a change of scenery is what he needs.

    I'm honestly pretty surprised this is causing as much uproar as it is. A lot of people thought he was gone when Josh left and even more thought he'd leave when he was getting the ball twice a game. I'm not surprised this happened in the least bit. I guess it answers the question about whether or not he came to CU because of Josh of because he genuinely thought this was the best school for him.

    Honestly, Ive been thinking about this happening all year including the end of last year so im hardly shocked. I just wonder what took so damn long. This has got to end.

    Of course that's the way you see it, you're a Hawkins apologist.

    If your warped view were true, Scott would have left when Smith left. He wouldn't have busted his ass, wasting a year of eligibility, just for the hell of it.

    So what part of my warped view said "I have been thinking about this for months?"

    Can you please remind me what happened months ago that would have gotten DS thinking about this?

    I get tired of hearing that when a player leaves, it is no big deal. Our depth sucks at a variety of positions because of this. People said the same thing about Josh, we could have used him this year, or does everyone prefer Espinoza? Scott, had potential to become a player, too bad Sumler (who's met his overall potential) took his carries, and we'll be without a big halfback after next season. It's bad enough that the Buffs lose every weekend this year, but what's even worse is that there is little reason to be optimistic about the future while Hawk is still here.

    A couple of months. Coincidentally, that is when the season started and his PT proved to be virtually non-existent.

    A couple months ago is long after Uncle Josh left....

    Bolond,

    Totally agree. No way we're not a better team this year if we've got J-Fly, Blackmon, Head and Kai.

    Yes, that person is you. Scott didn't produce? Hawk hasn't produce so like you said with scott, hawk should move on elsewhere.

    Chilly, Scott didn't produce, but he was making great strides in the classroom. He should have been given the starting job, right?

    Nik, but why should we care if we lost our best kick returner? Hawk is developing a hell of a walk-on program.

    When are you going to face it Chilly. You and DBT are the only ones who see it this way, and even DBT is sort of changing his tune. I guess 98 out of 100 relatively smart people are blind and only you can see the truth. Seriously think about that for a second. Face it we are right, and you are wrong. But hey if you love this type of on the field product then enjoy it now, because it will not be tolerated here much longer.
