And...why I think it's critical that we fire Hawk now. With CU joining the Pac-12 next year (and especially the Pac -12 south) this is the year for us to really make a killing in recruiting. Here's why: We are new to the Pac-12 and people are drawn to new things like restaurants, clubs, etc. There are many Socal players who never would have considered going to CU but now that we are "new" they are curious and excited about the idea of being the first guys to be a part of the Pac-12 buffs. We are part of the highly coveted Pac-12 south division (let's just call it the Socal division cause that's what it is) which means all those 5 star Socal athletes can now play for CU but still be in their "home" division and travel to Socal on a regular basis. CU is down and will be undergoing a regime change which typically means the new regime's recruits (even the true freshmen) will see a lot of playing time because the existing players often don't have the right skills for the schemes the new regime wants to employ. For CU, the new talent, who will be recruited because they do have the skills to fit the new scheme, will see the field a lot. The chance at early and a lot of playing time can be very appealing to young athletes. Add to all this the fact that SC is on probation, UCLA is dysfunctional, ASU is beginning its death spiral and U of A...well they're good but, Tucson (nuff said), ... All our recruiting competition is down this year or has major points against them so the recruits are primed to go somewhere else. Hello CU!!!!!! Put all these together and we have a golden opportunity this off season to bring class full of high caliber players like we haven't had in over a decade. If EB is on the staff, a native Socal-er and a phenomenal recruiter, double so. This is our year to make a splash. We have a combination of opportunities to sell that SC, UCLA, ASU and the rest cannot come close to matching. But in order for us to capitalize on this opportunity we need to start moving on it now. This means we need to get rid of Hawk, IMMEDIATELY, and put in place at least the leader of the new regime (Mac I hope) so that we can actively begin selling the "new CU" to the socal recruits. This is it, this is our chance. An opportunity like this will not come along again in the next 30 years. One time, one shot. We cannot afford to blow it. FIRE HAWK and name MAC NOW!!!!
