I'm afraid of the rumor that he wasn't running the defense last season post Toledo. That's what I'm going into the first game afraid of.
There was also this gem:
Damn. This guy has everything figured out.
That was the quote that especially annoyed me. Mostly because Adam tossed him a softball to give him an opportunity to praise some of the guys who really made big strides this fall... and RC didn't even take a swing.
For the record, I am not a fan of Collins. I believe his defenses were mediocre at Boise State and the biggest reason for them taking the next step as a program was the departure of Collins. I have seen some good efforts at CU, but I've also seen some inexplicable performances. Last season, I believe that 0-2 start can be 90% hung on Collins. He had a bunch of new starters and his plan resulted in over-complicating things against 2 lesser opponents. He should have been simplifying and letting our talent win the day. Proving my point, we ran a much less complex scheme against Texas than we did against CSU and we pretty much shut the Longhorns down.
I loudly called for Collins to be fired after those first 2 weeks. I believed then and I believe now that we would have been a better team last season and would be a better team this season if Greg Brown was our Defensive Coordinator. I wanted Collins gone and I wanted that change made more than I wanted Hawkins gone. And to give you an idea of how I felt about the job Hawkins was doing, in the heat of the moment I posted several time that we could get rid of Hawkins and put a cup of warm piss on his desk instead... and it would be an upgrade.
All that said, Hawkins was retained and Collins was retained. I'm a Buff fan and so these coaches have my support this season until they prove once again that they don't deserve it. I'm hoping every day with everything I've got that I was wrong about both of them. But I've got more confidence in Hawkins than Collins.
i sure would like to see our coaches just bang out some conventional coach speak instead of perambulating around their little theories: keep your powder dry.
"what do you fear?": CSU is the in-state rivalry game, they are a team that is gonna play with a lot of heart.....and if we don't match or exceed their intensity, they'll take it to us like they did last year on our home field. it's my job as a coach to get my guys there.
end of question.
Careful now. Some around here will accuse you of telling them how to think and questioning their fanhood.
Me too. I'm sitting there thinking, really Ron? There is not at least one guy you can pinpoint out of the entire defensive side that has surprised you? Hawkins annoys me most of the time, but at least he will throw some names out every now and then.
I mostly agree on Collins. The slow starts last season were a really poor reflection on him IMO. Far too many teams caught us off guard and we looked lost for quarters at a time. The CSU, Toledo, and Mizzou games stand out in particular.
Alabama in Indy Bowl, too.
If that wasn't a firing offense, I can't imagine what could be. CSU and Missouri were bad enough. But giving up 50+ to Toledo???!!!!!!???? Did that really happen?
Wow he even failed Hawkspeak 101
Wow, I dont know what else to say? Besides the football guru, who is Ron Collins, who has surprised you guys? I havent seen any practices so I only have articles to go by but Ive been pretty excited to hear about Terrel Smith, Ahles, shewent2jared aka icecreamman lol, etc.
Justin Torres has surprised me. I thought he'd be moved to linebacker and he ends up above the other freshman RBs on the depth chart. He'll play a lot this year.
Paul Richardson has surprised me. I was impressed with him as a prospect, but I didn't expect him to be a co-starter after only being here a few weeks.
Terrel Smith has surprised me. No way did I think an undersized, unheralded prospect would blow up like this. It's Jordan Dizon part deux so far.
Chidera Uzo-Diribe has surprised me. I was hoping the lightbulb would go on and that he might get in the rotation next year. It's looking like he'll be a pass rushing specialist as a true freshman.
Jered Bell has surprised me. I had him pegged as a guy with good measurable who was a bit of a project. It's going to be hard to redshirt him.
Dang it. I was hoping for a fresh start in 2011, going into a new conference with a fresh set of new coaches (Cabral should always be kept) to begin a new set of record books in the 12-PAC. Now, we may be stuck in the old lame duck conference with the same old lame duck coaches. SSDD.
My bad for not mentioning the offense guys too. El Toro is a pleasant surprise so far as well as the other guys you mentioned. I hope these guys can play right away and give themselves and everybody a good season.
These boise boys make me puke. The complete cluelessness from these guys is mind boggling.
Hey, BB, give it a ****ing rest. We all know you hate Hawkins and his staff. So stop your stupid assed ****ing threads ripping every member of the coaching staff. OK? ****!
How would any of your lives be if every ****ing thing you said got ripped appart and posted on some ****ing internet site for all to see. I'm so sick of this B U L L S H I T!
Yeah! Let's start another Cody Hawkins is great thread!!!
STFU Mayor MCHAWK, he's pointing out how ****ing clueless the boise boys are and how they haven't learned a Damn Mother ****ing thing in 4 + years.
Stop reading the ****ing threads if you don't like them.
**** you, dickhead. This **** has gotten WAY TOO ****ING OLD!
BOO ****ING HOO, somebody said something negative on the message board about me...Would you rather it be in morse code?
**** YOU anal wart...
*** YOU VAGINAL DISCHARGE, YOU have gotten too OLD!!!!!!!!!!
**** you fly on stink!
Next VICTIM, Romeo Bandison...Have we started a thread on the riddler yet?
Thank you for your opinion. I will take it under advisement.
Uh oh, now you did it, you just couldn't let a sleeping dickhead sleep...
Op, here we go... allbuffs at its inbred best.
