    Yeah... They both suck right now, but at least Hansen sucks because he's learning. Hansen may turn out to be bad, but at least we don't know if he'll be good or bad once he gets some experience! :lol:

    You know stats don't show it, but I'm enjoying the play of Hansen.

    Or we're just a very young and inexperienced team, with not much depth and mounting injuries that have compounded the problem. :huh:

    Next two games are very winnable. Bowl game can still be had. The season can still be a successful one. Chin up!! :thumbsup:

    GO BUFFS!!!!

    I think folks were hoping for a rebirth a la Kansas by putting in a mobile qb. Just reflecting back on the KU game, the D got some decent pressure on Reesing, but each time he just did a little scramble and made positive yardage. So the same logic suggests that the buffs would do the same. Only problem was that Mangino's system was in place and Hawkins is still trying to find his.

    So now we have a two qb system with different packages for each QB. It would be effective if the line was fully developed and it's starters and not backups were playing. When you add a 2 qb-seperate package system into play to an already confused and questionable confident o-line, failure can result.

    Whoever the QB is I want an offense that's not based in shotgun.

    I guess I bow to your relentless optimism. I wish I knew what you were basing it on but oh well. We are now fans of a program better known for getting unmercifully crushed on a semi weekly basis by the conference elite than for winning the 1990 national title. Simple question: why would any elite recruit want to come here now after seeing the utter futility and incompetence demonstrated by the staff and the team week after week. Flame away kool aid drinkers but the Buffs should have just forfeited last night and saved themselves a humiliation. They clearly didn't have any interest or desire in playing so they might as well have stayed at the hotel. I'm going on record: one more worthless effort like last night and I'll be leading the fire Hawk movement. I don't care that there's no one out there to replace him with. Hire the coach from the Mesa State or hire Boulder high's coach, they could hardly do worse.

    Are people forgetting that DScott committed after last years asswhuppin vs. Mizzou? A loss doesn't make or break our recruiting year.

    Correct me if I'm wrong... early in the 2nd half, Hanson had moved the team from about the 20 across midfield - during this mini-drive he was 2-2 passing the ball. Then in comes Cody, and the drive dies. It appeared to me that the kid was beginning to establish a little momentum. Too many beers, or is this what happened?

    Hawkins 3 and out killed any momentum Hansen had a chance at building int he first quarter too.

    The 2 QBs needs to stop.

    OK, now you are just being a too emotional. You think Boulder High's coach would do any better? **** me, this board is full of people who would just commit program suicide for the sake of 'change'. No idea of what the issues are, or how long it might take to change them, or how bad things can get if the wrong 'changes' are made.

    But enough about the election.:smile2::lol:

    This is true. Or at least, if you are going to switch QBs, do it on different series. What I see is that when hansen gets some 'mo', Cody comes in a kills it. All that has happened is that it has proved to us that Cody needs to stay on the sidelines and coach. Let Hansen play and get the reps and get some chemistry with the team.

    we switched back to cody in the mizzou game and went 0-58.

    Mission Accomplished.

    They have not changed QBs, they have only added more to the mix.

    What would happen if another QB got to take the snaps and practice and actually get to have the entire game plan?

    Changing QBs is the middle of a drive really helps a young QBs confidence.

    Hansen moves the ball to midfield,bring in cody. Brilliant!

    They need to pick one guy(hansen) and stick with him and give him all the reps in practice.

    Or at least give each his own complete series and accept what each produces.

    4-4 and we cant move the ball... No brainer to me- Play the freshmen with the better arm and faster legs and let him progress....

    I hope that this has nothing to do with the "father(coach)/son(QB)" theme the Hawkins family started in Boulder... Cody would be a quality starter contender in Boise where he originally committed...IMO

    I can't believe this is even an issue.


    Hansen hands down.
