    CU @ KU

    I guess it wouldn't be bad for KU to pick up a win this weekend and beat CU at home. KU won't get bowl eligible anyway, and that would send the CU team home with 6 losses, very discouraged, and assured of Hawkins getting canned.

    They might just be playing out the string when ISU shows up.

    Re: CU @ KU

    My ideal outcome for the Kansas-Colorado game on Saturday is for Colorado to lose on a heartbreaker in the last drive. A dejected Colorado that just wants the season to be over is good for Iowa State. Plus Kansas could use a break.

    I'd love if by five years down the road Iowa State, Kansas, and Baylor 1,2, and 3 in the conference standings every year.

    Agreed. If CU loses to KU this weekend, then I think they'll just be playing out the string and hoping for the season to come to a quick and merciful end. Here's the latest on the Hawkins situation:


    The philosophical side of Dan Hawkins made its first appearance of the 2010 season at the coach's weekly media luncheon Tuesday, as Hawkins chatted with reporters in a conversational tone about dealing with adversity in life and staying true to oneself.

    The embattled coach also talked a little football as the Buffs got back to work preparing for another road trip to Kansas on Saturday for a game that will pit the only two winless teams in Big 12 Conference play against each other.
    CU is 3-5 overall and 0-4 in conference games. Kansas is 2-6, 0-4.

    Hawkins' 24-minute session with the media Tuesday was in stark contrast to his 4-minute post-game press conference at Oklahoma last weekend, when he abruptly stood up and walked out when reporters continued with a series of questions about his job security and future in Boulder.

    “How you deal with life's challenges, how you deal with adversity, that's going to define you,” Hawkins said Tuesday. “I think you need to know what your foundations are, you need to know what your philosophies are, you need to know what your beliefs are, and you need to hunker down and stick to that. Even though the winds, for a variety of reasons, may be whipping unmercifully on you.
    “That's really what I try to talk to these guys about.”

    Hawkins said he was impressed with how well his team handled its fourth consecutive loss last week. He said players were disappointed in losing to 43-10 to the Sooners, but they were “great” in how they dealt with it.
    “The best part of my job is being with those guys,” he said. “We have great kids. They're a blast to be around.”

    Hawkins said he laid awake Monday night at home watching a show on ESPN and he used part of the report on the troubles of former Ohio State and Denver Broncos running back Maurice Clarett as a teaching point with his team. He said he is continuously trying to find messages and tips for his players to help
    them understand things better and improve their play.

    “It's like you're a potter and you've got the hands on the clay all the time, and I'm always trying to help them make sense of the world the best way I can,” Hawkins said. “You guys are pretty deep in here today. What's the story?”

    No disrespect intended
    Television cameras caught Hawkins turning his back to the field during a 40-yard field-goal attempt last week from place-kicker Aric Goodman. Some were upset and saw the act as a sign of disrespect for Goodman, who has struggled to consistently make field goals during his career.

    “I never watch,” Hawkins said when asked to explain himself. “Nope, I just don't. I always look for the trainers. I look for the docs. Cause they are usually on the other end. I look for the docs and trainers (to tell him whether the kick is good or not).”
    Notable
    Quarterback Tyler Hansen was at practice Tuesday morning and will travel with the team this week. Hawkins said Hansen will probably be on the sideline and help signal plays in to the offense. Hansen suffered a ruptured spleen two weeks ago and is likely out for the season. ...Hawkins said wide receiver Travon Patterson is questionable for Saturday's game with a high-ankle sprain. If Patterson can't play, true freshman Paul Richardson will get more playing time. ...Hawkins said he anticipates defensive back Paul Vigo will be able to play this week. ...Hawkins began his press conference by congratulating former Colorado Rockies manager Clint Hurdle on a solid season with the Texas Rangers, who lost the World Series Monday night.

    So how nervous is everyone going to be if Colorado blows out KU in Lawrence. I know I'll be crapping bricks.

    I'll be nervous about Colorado if we don't beat Nebraska this weekend regardless. We could have blown out KU too, but Rhoads put in the backups once we had a solid lead because it was more important to keep everybody healthy and give the backups experience than it was to beat KU by 30-40 points.

    We are a better team than Colorado, but I'll still be very nervous about getting that win and going bowling.

    If nothing else because we've had something like 3 wins at colorado since 1950, and only 1 in the last 15 years or so..

    Re: CU @ KU

    CU is thinking they can still make a bowl game as they have KU this week and ISU and KSU the following weeks at home. A loss to KU would definitely deflate CU's hope.

    Re: CU @ KU

    Definately want CU to have nothing to play for. They have a lot of good defensive players and are very capable of beating ISU, if they have a reason to play. On offense they are not very good, but they do have good running backs. As pointed out above, the Clones have a very bad history at CU, even when they are a really horrible team.

    Re: CU @ KU

    I would love for my Jayhawks to help you out here, but I don't have a lot of faith. Hopefully we get our qb (Webb) back and he's healthy. He may only be a freshman but he gives us our best shot. If he's still out we are going to have trouble keeping this game close.

    Re: CU @ KU

    Wulp.......CU is smoking KU on the road. I have a bad feeling in my stomach after watching the Iowa Game. They dodge a bullet, we get rolled....and CU comes out blazin against us. Make the ISU vs Mizzou game a must win.

    I need a couple good ISU drives to get me feeling better.

    CU will certainly be favored unless we manhandle Nebraska today....

    Re: CU @ KU

    The way I look at it--CU got their "win" out of the way, streak broken. They won't have so much of an edge next week.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)
