This program needs someone in charge who hates losing

    As it stands, the coach almost seems to enjoy it because it allows him to feel sorry for himself. The AD seems to know he made the wrong hire in at least one program, and was additionally stupid enough to extend the coach before he proved he knew what he was doing. Thus, he has put the program in a horrible position to succeed but can't do anything about it, so he is know backpedaling, making excuses, and employing whatever hollow rhetoric he can to try to save face.

    Not once have either of these professional losers - and yes, they are losers, in the most literal possible sense of the word; I am not commenting on nor concerned with their personal lives - EVER stood up and took even an iota of responsibility for their failures.

    A lot of coaches in this situation will step up to the media and say "I am not getting it done. I take full responsibilities. I let the players down. This performance is unacceptable."

    Not here. Here, we ramble on with a bunch of false promises about next week while the coach browses the halls of Chem140 for the next starting wide receiver and second-on-the-depth-chart true freshmen QB. No one is ever angry, emotional, or visibly sick of losing.

    It becomes more and more apparent each week that these guys don't give a **** about anything but their compensation and trying to save face. Neither of them has any commitment to winning, whatsoever. While this is new to Hawkins, as he managed to ride the excellence of Petersen to a great record at BSU, it is no stranger to Bohn; every single hire this man has made at any university he was worked at has been an abject failure by wins and losses.

    Get rid of both of them. If the expectations are not higher than this then why bother to have a football program? At this point it is serving as more of an embarrassment than a boon.

    Bohn has already stated that Hawkins won't be fired.

    And we think our AD is broke now? How many, exactly, people do these self-deceivers think are going to show up to Folsom for the remainder of the year?

    I can't disagree with you at all. The attitude Hawk has toward our struggles is sickening. He does not care, so why should his team?

    No, actually, virtually any program in the country would have trouble filling the seats with a proven failure at coach that the university refuses to address and year after year after year after year of embarrassing losses.

    Programs that fill all their seats every year are programs that either win a hell of a lot more than they lose, or are located in states where there is literally nothing else to do but go to cfb games.

    Putting people in the seats isn't that big of a deal. Season ticket sales are already made. Television dollars are already made. Etc.

    Of course it's well known he lost me last year. To bring another example how stubborn this guy is and how much he doesnt care about our traditions, one of the few things that at least I took a little pride in was our scoring streak, 4th in nation I believe at the time? He was in a FG scoring position against Mizzou and rather than keep the streak alive, he once again tried to prove something by going only for the TD which of course he failed. So ended the 4th longest streak in the nation.

    I know to some that may seem a small thing and not really anything to be proud of, but it just showed me how little he cares for what is already in place at CU and is so f-in stubborn he will go against logic everytime.

    JMHO.

    Talk about your basic oxy-moronic post, calling out the fans with a thumbs up.

    I agree with Hawk's statement at the time that you're not there to score FGs just to keep that streak alive. As you said, it's pretty meaningless at that point.

    I would be surprised if there's 40,000 in the stadium for WYoming.

    DH is definately undoing anything Bohn has tried to accomplish in the way of drumming up excitement and support for the team through $$$.

    But how stubborn will Bohn be? Will he admit he made a mistake or will he fall on his sword for DH?

    Seems like the only way that bohn will listen is if he gets hit in the ad pocket book. If hawk is still around next year how many new season ticket holder will there be and how many of the fence riding season ticket holders will renew? I just couldn't be any lower. I think I am going to go backpacking for a couple of days just to get away from this crap.
