    I've mentioned this in some of my posts before, but wanted to see how others felt.

    He cares about the team only because it is his job. Meanwhile he also takes time to insult the true Buffaloes. The ones who went to school here, the ones who go to school here, the ones whose parents and/or grandparents and/or kids go or went to school here. The ones who give a lot of money and time and support to CU. These are the ones who are Buffaloes. Not some guy who gets paid a ton of money and acts like he is all that matters.

    Last spring Hawk closed practices to these Buffalo fans. Then he went on to say that the people on the internet are "scum". That "scum" from a forum that has a set of season tickets, along with hundreds of other season tickets by the individuals from that forum.

    Then, in the middle of a disappointing season some fans show some disappointment by wearing sky blue to the A&M game in protest. He goes on to say in the post game interview, "Real fans wear black and gold," with a smug ****ing smile. No, Dan, real fans give to the University, not take away from it. Real fans go to the games even though you make them almost unbearable to watch. You don't get to choose who the real/fake fans are. You are not a true Buffalo.

    ****ing discuss. He makes me sick.

    All he's done since he's been here is point the finger at CU for HIS epic fail. You know... the organization he's being paid $1MM/yr to edify and represent.

    Not a Buff. Not even a poodle. More like an intestinal parasite.

    It's the holidays. I'm feeling generous these days.... :smile2:

    One thing about this poll - I think the answer is "no" for most coaches out there. Aside from the ones who are alums or have lifetime roots with a program (JoePa, for example), for most of these guys it's a job. That's why they jump when more money shows up someplace else. :rolleyes:

    Hawkins has done more than most to distance himself from the program he's "leading", though, at least in my opinion...

    I agree that this is the case with most coaches, but I also feel that there are many coaches who leave for a different job, but still care about the one they left. I actually feel that Barnett still cares about CU even though he got fired. I know Mac does. I think Brian Kelly will still care about Cincy and hope they succeed even though he left them and got his house egged. I think Hawk could have really become a Buff is he acted like the fans mattered. Winning helps too. :huh:

    How could he not be!? Just because he is failing doesn't mean he's not a buff. Sheesh. Look, you can be angry at him for not following through with a lot of things, but gosh, it's not only results that make a person one of us.
    When he leaves I wish him well, and wish us well. I remember when Barnett was under the microscope. I'm happy he has been as gracious as he has when it comes to talking about CU.

    BEST of Luck To HAWK and CU in 2010.

    Yep. And if Hawk doesn't care about CU and its student athletes he doesn't go on a last-minute offensive to save his job. Hawk wants to win just as much as any other coach.

    OK, I know most of you dislike the guy, but he has, I'm pretty sure, three kids that go to CU, Cody, his youngest son and a daughter. Two of them are not on scholarship. So, that makes him a Buff to me, if nothing else.

    Of course Dan's a Buffalo.

    It's fair to question his tactics, abilities and success rate. But I've never heard anyone suggest that he doesn't care deeply about his job, this program, the people that work for him, and the student-athletes on his team.

    He's just not a very successful Buff so far. :wink2:

    I wasn't around then, but all anyone has said or written is that Chuck did not care about the program and was just cashing a paycheck. Not giving a **** pretty much disqualifies you in my book.

    Hell no. Not a good comparison to Danny. Chuck did not care, Danny cares, but has no ability to produce.

    Dan's youngest son is at Boise St & both of his daughters are post-college, I believe.

    Well, I think his youngest just transferred to CU and a friend doing a Make-a-Wish thing said his daughter was there and that she goes to CU. He may have been wrong about that, though.

    You could say the same of Slick Rick, but I would classify him as bruin, even when he was coach here.

    He would like us all to think he bleeds the B&G. But ever since he made the comment that "Real Buff Fans" wear the B&G, he hasn't proven to me that he deserves to coach the Black & Gold.

    if he truly bleeds BnG, then he would resign w/o taking another dime out of the beleagured program. Do the honorable thing and get the F-k out!

    I'm sure that is what you would do. :lol: One rumor is that he agreed to a $2.5 million buy out, $1 million below what he is owed, to walk but was overidden by Benson. So, he was willing, rumor goes, to leave a million on the table.

    So you are happy about someone staying here who was ready to take his money and leave?


    Beyond ridiculous.. Just goes to show how clueless our administration is..

    I'm not "happy" about anything right now. Don't mistake my disdain for runnng Hawk and the program down with being happy.
