Well, that's an interesting route to go for your own political whisper campaign. I Like it!
I believe that Hawkins had to mute it to silence the sobs...
I hadn't really thought of the fact that Hawkins would have been on the line at the same time.
Three cheers for Grandpa Snyder!
And with D2D on the line? :slayer::doh::rofl2:
I never thought I'd give gramps Snyder props, but that took some ballz.
That's got to be one of the funniest conference calls in a long time
Dude is making BANK! Probably set for life. Cry me a river!
What I want to know is who was the reporter asked Snyder the question? I don't see any of our local hacks having the stones to ask.
I missed the call. Did anyone follow up by asking Snyder about the wisdom of 2 point conversions in the first quarter?
OK -- I listened to Snyder's portion of the Big 12 conference call.
(You can find the Big 12 conference call archived on Big12sports.com)
The question was asked by Kyle Ringo. He said, "Bill McCartney has said that he's interested in returning to coaching. I was wondering if you could share some of the challenges and rewards you have faced in returning to coaching."
Synder responded that the challenges are the same whether you are 20 or 70, and simply have to be balanced. He also talked about being re-acclimated to a system and a process of being a coach. He said he could draw from things that worked when he was at KSU, and use them again, and know that they will work because they worked before.
Snyder said the game changes and works in cycles all the time, and it did that during Bill's tenure. He said there's nothing new out there in college football today, it's all just recycled. He said McCartney has plenty of experience to draw from and was certainly very adaptable to today's college coaching.
He then said that Bill McCartney is as fine a coach as any he had ever known, and if Bill wanted to come back at 90, he could do it. He closed out by saying that any team would be lucky to have Bill McCartney as their football coach.
Any references to the CU job were implied at the most. Snyder was talking about Mac coming back to coaching in gerneral terms.
No way, I'm sure he's positive his the contract extension is imminent.
I know what you mean. I sure hope we offer Mac.
Still - here you have Ringo, the Buffs beat writer, asking about Colorado's legendary coach getting back into the game. And oh, by the way, D2D is on the line. The writing is on the wall here fellas if we all subscribe to Ringo and Woelk being mouthpieces for the AD.
I give mad props to Kyle for asking this question knowing full well what would be inferred by his implications (did I use those properly Wally? :smile2, and even madder props to Grandpa Snyder again for answering it.
When reading threads like this, I begin to feel pity for Hawk. Listening to people talk about Mac coming back had to be a kick in the gut. There is no shame in trying and failing, the shame is in acting like an arrogant jackass while failing...I guess that pity thing has run it's course. Carry on.
It would be nice if Hawkins would come out, when it was all said and done, and say "I gave it my best shot, but it just didn't work out" or something humble and sincere like that.
I tend to think it will be a little more like plenty of finger pointing away from himself.
Instead I expect him to go more like the way of Charlie Weis.
