    The better, I hope people who are writing emails to Bohn are putting some of these sad stats in.

    Hawks records more than halfway through year 4

    15-29 overall record
    4-13 vs Big 12 North opponents
    0-9 on road vs. Big 12 north opponents
    2-17 overall road record
    1-3 vs. Kansas
    0-3 vs. Mizzou
    1-3 vs. Kansas St.
    1-2 vs. Nebraska
    1-2 vs. Iowa St.

    Hawk seems to have a "Big win" every year, but what has happened after those big wins that gets buffs fans hopes up again?

    2006: Beat Texas Tech 30-6, went 1-4 after that game.
    2007: Beat Oklahoma 27-24, went 3-4 after.
    2008: Started 3-0 and beat WVU, went 2-6 after
    2009: Beat Kansas 34-30, lost to KSU after for the programs 10th straight loss on the road against the north.

    And Gary Barnett was 19-5 against the north from '01-'05, with two of those losses his last two regular season games. IMO, the north might be slightly better now than it was then, but not by much. Hawk has pretty much reversed that record against the same quality of opponents.

    We're still paying Gary (I think). Maybe we should bring him back.

    Barney would win 6-8 games with this crew.

    I think the point of the expression "beating a dead horse" is that it's pointless.

    Once the horse is dead, beating it does nothing. That's contrary to your title and first line, in which you suggest the more the horse gets beat the better.

    I'm not sure the horse is dead yet, but I think it is.

    When in Rome...

    1-2 vs. Iowa State might be the most pathetic of Hawkins many failures.

    I'm gonna guess you recognize the often misused expression "When in Rome" from Anchorman, and you're just ****ing with me.:smile:

    In some cultures, they only eat vomit. I never been there, but I read about it...

    Second point: Hilarious.
