    I can't believe I'm saying this, but Woody actually is making sense and right for a change. Hard to believe.

    That was completely fair, imo.

    Woody's summation probably belongs in the reference section of the Dan Hawkins wiki page.

    when Woody is calling you out in a plausible manner, you are in trouble.

    Sadly though, Hack will NEVER admit his shortcomings all the way to the end of his soon to be shortened coaching career. No one except UC-DAvis or Northern California HSs will hire him.

    The sooner he's gone to quicker we can look towards a new future; hopefully CU will actually get a homerun on the next coach hiring.

    Exactly. And it means that even Woody feels bad kicking a dead horse too much.

    Woody's comments on soccer were pretty ignorant. It's like he thinks nothing has changed since 1995. As for as Hawk... not bad.

    Believe it or not, I think Woody is right on the money. Hawkins has better have figured it out going into this season.

    Yea, he better figure it out. Win or gone. I do not think that 6 or 7 wins saves his job. I am not quite sure that 8 will now save it. I am hoping that the parade and comments we have seen over the last week are truly a turning point in the committment to athletics at CU. I think he does need to hit it out of the park with wins this year or he is gone.

    It isn't solely about wins and losses. It will be about direction. Momentum. We have two years to build momentum leading to the Pac. With a fresh new bank roll, mediocrity won't get it anymore.

    I seriously doubt we will see anything new to make us feel optimistic about Hack as the CU coach, so Bye Bye Dan, It's DIVISION 1 FOOTBALL! THE PAC -12!! Go Play Intramurals Dan, Go play Intramurals!

    I actually believe that the Hawkins-Bohn relationship is strained to the point where a 7-5 season and maybe even 8-4 will not save Dan Hawkins's job. There's a likelihood from what I am hearing that we could have a "blue sky" scenario, assuming that Hawkins delivers a decent year: winning record, strong recruiting class, and a new head coach in place before our bowl game.

    Its kind of funny or ironic or something, but I think the Pac move has raised the bar for Dan. Where a 7 win season and a trip to a mediocre bowl would have possibly saved him before, I think he will have to do better than that now. Quite possibly, even eight wins may not get it done if recruiting doesn't pick up.

    Every Big 12 game for the next two years will be magnified X100.

    I don't think Hawk is a quitter.

    Yea, I get feeling he and Bohn do not share many conversations and are not on each others Christmas card lists.

    A columnist job is to provoke thought and emotion and get people to want to read his paper just to see what he has to say each day. If a columnist doesn't piss a bunch of people off on a frequent basis he is probably going to be unemployed soon unless he works for a paper in Omaha or Austin where he just has to have a dark brown nose.

    I have been pissed at Woody at times myself but understanding what his job is and that he is not a Buff fan at heart he is right a lot more than he is wrong. The difference between Woody and a douchebag like Kizla is that Woody actually thinks and he does work hard to find different and interesting angles instead of just throwing crap out there to piss people off.

    He also when he wants to can have a very good perspective on things and this column is an example of that. He states what I have believed for a long time, that Dan Hawkins in a good guy who got in over his head and failed to do the job at this level.

    I have very little question in my mind that this will be Hawk's last year as HC at CU. By the end of this season the political pressure of an election during a state government financial crisis will be over. He will have another losing year under his belt and with five years nobody can say he didn't have a fair chance.

    What a moron like Kizla doesn't bother to check is that the three coaches prior to Hawk all played in BCS level bowl games. This is a program that has been, can be, and should be among the elite in college football. We don't have the resources of Texas, Florida, LSU, Ohio State, etc. but we damn sure are not comparable in any way to CSU, Wyoming, SDSU, and the rest of the mid-major bunch and to say so shows a complete lack of knowlege and thought.
