    What a disaster. All the news is bad. To go from the pre-season promise, to where we sit today, it is unbelievable. I will always be a huge Buff supporter (including financial, although not in the PB realm), but I have hit my limit. After Wyoming spanks us on Saturday, it will be interesting to see what Bohn does. As I have said since Friday night, he needs to quickly pull the trigger and can Hawk, even if it is $3M. The longer he waits, the worse it will be for the entire athletic dept.

    So much for paying our dues the last 3 years....start the clock over.

    [By the way, I am typically an optimist....]

    I think Hawk is going to get another year regardless of what happens on the field. I've felt that since the CSU game and nothing has changed my opinion. They will not pay another coach 3.4 million to not coach at CU.. Not going to happen. Plus Bohn isn't going to admit that the extension was wrong one year later.


    Now, you might get your wish(or wake up) in 2010. :smile:

    I think this thing could snowball fast. If we lose to Wyoming, then get torched by WVA and UT, Bohn will be under immense pressure. Hawk would be removed in that scenario.

    I would have your back if we don't win a game. It's not that far fetched either. If we lose to WYO, we might be done. Barring a miracle.

    That's what I'm feeling right now, too.

    I will say I'm eternally optimistic about this weekend, but if CU loses this one, then chalk up L's against WVU, UT and KU as well. So at that point the Buffs are 0-6 and the absolute laughing stock amongst major BCS teams. If that happens, I just couldn't see Bohn standing by Hawk at that point, because I think HIS job would be in serious jeopardy.

    Maybe Christopher Melloni from Law and Order SVU can pick up part of the Hawk tag. lol

    We're going to win the wyoming game. I feel it in my heart. It's not going to change the underlying problems but at least for this week we're going to feel better about our program. Moving forward it's going to be a rough season but Coach Mac threw his full support behind hawk so that's good enough for me. What else could I say that hasn't already been said? Go Buffs, beat wyoming.

    We better win big. I'm not saying that will get the heat off, but it would be a good step forward.

    I say we beat WYO, get some time to lick our wounds and gameplan for WVU and beat them...

    Can we show up vs TX?

    These first two losses this year are not the beginning of CU's coach's problems, that may have been last year's disappointments.

    But a loss to Wyoming, in Boulder, would be a sign of something pretty close to a thorough meltdown going on.

    That would cause phone calls to the AD from money folks (as if that is not happening already).

    A case could be made for this game being Dan's most important game of his career at CU. I am not convinced of that, but it is possible to lean in that direction of thinking and not seem too off-base. I guess I am still impressed with Bohn's remark the other day when he used the phrase, "..I still believe in Dan Hawkins."

    Bold, bold prediction considering our coaches refuse to play our best players when we fall behind and we are incapable of pressuring the QB or even getting off blocks to fill gaps in the running game. We also can't tackle or make plays in the secondary.

    If we thought we saw good athletes, good speed and a good QB who can move against Toledo, wait till we go to Morgantown.

    We are not a well-coached team. We also don't play our best athletes. Not a good combination and it will lead to a very very poor season.

    Hawkins will be gone by the end of the season.

    Another thing to think of: We have 0 4 or 5 star recruits interested in us. We have 1 visit scheduled for the entire season(a 2 star DE who has no other offers)!

    My only hope is that a new coach can come in after the season, pick up the pieces, convince players to not transfer and start building towards a rough schedule in 2010.

    "Restoring The Order" a phrase used in Nebraska. Thanks for the compliment, if it is one. I'm not to sure you want to use it though because the jury is still out on "Restoring The Order", and it has been for a long process for Husker fans.

    Good luck with it! Your going to need it.

    BTW: My wake up call to you will be after recruiting season is over, and if Hawkins is still around I will let the clock run quiet.

    Thanks Spider and Surveyor for being supportive and not trolling during Colorado's down time. Now and when both Nebraska and Colorado were struggling I wanted to see both teams return to the top of the North. I would like to see our conference be competitive. Besides, what is the CU-Neb game without them being the top North teams battling it out at the end of the season. Here's to both teams climbing towards the top. We're going to be a little late, but we'll meet you there. Go Buffs!

    You sure are welcome, SkiTownUSA.

    And I sure agree about NU and CU rivalry meaning so much more when they're both capable of vying for the North.
