    12-2 to 0-12 in one season. Epically bad.

    The AD: I don't like him!

    Cant imagine how bad of a desk Ellis Johnson had to sit behind this past season.

    I bet the coach had to deliver water with a pail and a ladle, too.

    The real question is whether or not the coach had to buy his staff water

    Amazing. I was actually still fully in Embree's corner after one year.

    Would you have been fully in his corner if he dropped an 0-12 in his 1st year?

    I would have been. I didn't stop supporting Hawkins after the 1-10 opening year. Recruiting looked good. And he followed it up with a decent season the next year.

    I'll never think Hawkins was going to be the right long-term guy for CU, but that was also very close to being very different. That damn miracle field goal by Nebraska that kept us out of a bowl in 2008 is when it started to unravel. Hawkins' recruiting strategy was completely reliant on getting December visits during bowl practices.

    Hawkins went 2-10 his first year.

    An 0-fer is hard to recover from.

    Yeah. Looking back, though, I don't think I would have given up after 1. Of course, I never thought I'd be on the side of terminating a coach after 2. I guess you never know until you go through it.
