    Good read on Dan Hawkins

    I realize that many of you don't care about Dan Hawkins or Colorado anymore, but this is a very good read. Tom Dienhart recently caught up with "The Hawk," where he discusses all sorts of things, including the future of the Big 12.

    I find it humorous that he and Dennis Francione were the finalists for TEXAS STATE!!

    I kind of find it annoying that he mentioned all the Big 12 North teams except for Iowa State, but it's not a big deal.

    Not a Hawkins fan but when he was hired, I thought he was a perfect fit for CU. He had the right mentality, and could fit in with the Boulder environment as well as dealing with the issues that exist on that campus and in town. Namely the DA, Mary?, who has a big, big issue with the football program since the McCartney days.

    It turns out that even Hawkins couldn't rally the fans, overcome the politics, and overcome the horrible facilities. I really don't see CU being a player anytime in the near future. They have a lot to overcome

    Would have been an even better read had he actually answered a single question thrown his way.

    It would have been funny when asked why Petersen hasn't left Boise State...he simply said "Me"

    Re: Good read on Dan Hawkins

    Hawkins should have been fired midway thru the 2nd half of the 2007 ISU-CU game. The entire first half his defense double-covered Blythe and CU took a 21-0 lead into the lockerroom.

    In an act of "brilliance" - CU went away from that in the 2nd half - allowing ISU to connect on 2 big strikes to Blythe early in the 2nd half - giving ISU new life and eventually winning the game.

    IMO, there is no rational explanation that Hawkins was not only allowed to keep his job, but even get back on the bus for Boulder. Liked him at BSU and I thought he'd be a good fit at CU - but he was nothing but a disaster.

    Re: Good read on Dan Hawkins

    The Hawk and CU posted a record of 2-24 on the road. Thats epic bad!

    0 fer at ISU, got beat down by Toledo on a Friday night game in 09, got hammer by Cal(?) last year. Gave Kansas their only B12 win of the season...who oh by the way had trouble not losing most conference games by less than 30.

    I always like Hawkins persona, but that program was a train wreck. Even in defeat they seemed to play with about anyone at home. That road record is eye popping.

    Rhoads on the road is 3-6 so far.
    Nuetral site is 1-2 @ Home 8-5
