    Colorado firing Hawkins today?

    Press conference called for 11:55 MT today at CU and apparently Hawkins, in his Big 12 teleconference, was giving very short answers today.

    Lots of smoke. Could only be a good thing for us, IMO.

    Re: Colorado firing Hawkins today?

    Would they really do this now? Doesnt that pretty much mean they are scrapping the rest of the season.

    I actually want us to go to Boulder and beat the cr.p out of them and then after the game, let Buffs fire him.
    Still can't forgive him for what happened during Humanitarian Bowl 2002

    Can he take his son with him?

    Re: Colorado firing Hawkins today?

    I'm guessing this would be like Brewster in Minny. This team could fall apart in a big, big way. Hawkins is not a beloved figure in Boulder like Mac was here.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I'd rather he not be fired. I think the team would be in more disarray if he was still on the sidelines.

    This would be great for us. Seems like odd timing though.

    How could they afford doing that after the penalty for leaving the Big XII? They would need a huge donor to step up and pay that off.

    That'd be pretty cold blooded.

    Players, however, are usually pretty loyal to their coaches (unless the coach has just been a jerk towards them). It would be better for ISU if the CU players didn't have extra incentive to rally around their coach for the last few games.
