    CU - Hawkins - Position NOT Open

    I find this hard to believe but they are not currently in a coaching search (or they have already fired Hawk and are just trying to hide their search)

    It's not open YET but it will be in a couple weeks. Just playing politics like any AD would do.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: CU - Hawkins - Position NOT Open

    They are still paying Barnett this season, and word is they don't have the money for a Hawkins buyout. It would cost them several million dollars. I think he may last another season. That's good for Iowa State. His recruiting this year at CU is a shambles. Let him wallow there.

    The longer they keep the "Hawk" the better it is for I-State.

    I don't mind at all: as long as we can beat him, CU better retain him. We should be glad that he's still coaching the Buffs.

    Re: CU - Hawkins - Position NOT Open

    They can't afford it. They will do something face saving like making him fire his assistants and start somewhere else.

    Huh... that sounds familiar.

    Re: CU - Hawkins - Position NOT Open

    The thing is, with Hawk on the hot seat and rumors swirling, CU is already screwed. How do you recruit effectively with that cloud over your head? I see his comments as being a way to save face. The spin is to make the university look bad by firing a guy who did things the right way. If the AD and President were behind him, they would have immediately made a strong public statement backing him, which they didn't.

    I'm sure Hawk isn't worried about it because he has a few million reasons not to be.

    He's firmly entrenched...

    I pull for anybody who's under that much pressure. Granted some of it is his own doing, but he does have a fairly young team.

    What in the world is consistently happening at CU? 10-15 years ago or so they were competing for a National Championship and since Bill McCartney it's been crazy stuff.

    Barrnett was pretty good, he won a bunch of North Titles and (1) Big 12 Championship. Granted, the North was down, but cudos to him for getting it done.
