    Well, we won't know for a couple of years but, yeah, I think he will. But make no mistake, the coaches success is highly dependent on CU's commitment to winning. What do they say: A good manager sets his/her people up to succeed?

    Could we not just have a "Yes" and a "No" option?

    I voted:

    No, he will have to put his "stamp" and,
    No, he won't pick the obvious winner Mac.

    I am letting all the rumors get to me. I am beginning to think he is going to mess this hire up.

    Pigs love acorns. They hate pecans.

    i'm just the opposite.

    looked it up, pigs DO like acorns. how can i go through life for 35 years and not know things like this? like lanyard is the name of the thing you wear around your neck with a keyring on it. i didn't know that was what that was called until last summer.

    Lets remember that not many people thought that Bohn got it wrong with Hawkins. That decision is more questionable in hindsight, although the lack of depth in the search was pointed out at the time. I think Bohn has done ok with the other hires, even when they have not worked out perfectly. I am inclined to give him another chance to get this one right.

    There is only so much MB can do, I think he made an excellent hire in Hawkins at the time, he was a very sought after coach and it was a big hire....at the time. I do think this go-around he needs to pay more attention to a coaches ability to coach BSC level football and the kind of schemes he is bringing.

    How can anyone say there is a definite "right thing" this early in the process? There are no sure things in hiring a coach, even hiring a legend in the program. Right now, I'm still hoping there is a real process and not just going after a single person.

    I'm hoping Bohn screwed up and thought he was at Mississippi State to talk to Mullen instead of Ole Miss.

    I would be willing to bet his job that he gets it right.

    Dan Hawkins

    womens- B-ball coach

    BZZZZ

    I'm thinking no unless former players and others help him understand how crucial this is. Seek good counsil, so far his track record sucks.

    Need to add: Its not up to MB anyway, so Benson and Di man will screw the program again.
