    Why ask a question that doesn't have an answer?

    nope- firing him now will save the university money

    Might salvage ticket sales for November games w/Iowa St & ksu
    If Mac takes over donations will go through the roof.

    According to the Colbert Report, it's the beginning of Yim Kippur. Maybe they are waiting for their call of atonement from Hawk before they can him.

    Only reason I can think of.

    I'm convinced the hold-up has to do with settling on the terms of the B12 exit. It's a number between $6M and $22M. And the Pac-10 network deal is a number between $14-$20M.

    That's a lot of volatility to plan around. If CU knew it could get out of the B12 on the cheap, and reap the high end of a new Pac-10 deal, or if CU decided to stick around the B12, it'd be easier to drop the hatchet.

    But the vindictive Beebe boys might demand 80% of 2010 and 2011 revenue, and the Pac-10 might only bring CU a similar number they make now. CU might end up upside down on the conference deal for a few years no matter who is coach.

    The regents are going to need a big shove to approve a mid-season buy-out with everything else going on.

    I know for a fact that Bohn knows that he has to fix the coaching.

    Because as long as we suck our games get relegated to FCS. And as long as we're on FCS, Samantha (ass of) Steele will be gracing the sidelines at Folsom.

    Agree...but I actually overheard him say it. That makes it pretty much fact to me since I can't trust the rest of you internet sCUm.

    Who would Dave Plati abuse if we fired Dan Hawkins? There wouldn't be any more pissed off fans to insult.

    Its embarrassing our program didn't make the change last November. We just threw away a year. Ridiculous.

    I still can't believe he was retained after last season.

    So the move to the Pac-10 and the money it is going to cost are going to be next offseason's reasons for retaining Hawkins for 2011? Looking forward to it.
