Hypothetical Situation: CU goes outside the family yet again in 2010 (which many of you are wishing had happened, especially in hindsight). The AD still needs to hire on the cheap (we had no money in 2010) and goes for an obscure up and coming home run hire. We'll call him Hawkins 2.0. Now, we might have gotten lucky with a young coordinator turning into a solid HC, but my sense is that we would have screwed up this hypothetical hire as well and we'd be roughly where we are now, probably with a few more wins. But the CU fan base is incensed. Hawkins 2.0 can't win, can't recruit, and is neglecting CU tradition. We are calling for his ouster, and the camp who wants a CU Buffs For Life hire is at a fever pitch. Let's say that the AD makes the call to fire Hawkins 2.0 in 2013. The next decision is easy. The CU AD hires Jon Embree in 2013, and we all know how that ends, but it doesn't end until 2015 or 2016. The one and only positive from the (real) Embree Regime - we know how the Great Experiment ends, we don't need to repeat it, and we can move on from it in 2012 or 2013 as opposed to having to wait until 2015 or 2016.
