While I still hold out hope that Danny Boy is the right guy and the Buffs can rebound in 2009 I grow more concerned everyday. Hawkins and Helfrich have created no offensive identity in three years. I have no idea what kind of offense they are attempting to run. The substitution patterns are useless. The personnel packages(groupings) are a joke. The latest announcement that Cody will play most of the game against Nebraska is dumbfounding. Why waste Hansen's redshirt? Cody is a great kid but gives us almost no chance to win in Lincoln. Unfortunately, he was less than mediocre against the Cowboys. What is the point of playing him versus Hansen?
The look on Dan's face throughout the game was very telling. He looked like a 5th grader in detention(I doubt they still have such a thing)confronted by an algebra equation. Why haven't the special teams gotten better? Why won't we run any toss plays, where are the tight ends? For someone who supposedly is a big motivation guy he does very little during games. All his Cliff Notes version philosphical BS needs to be turned inward and he needs to make some tough decisions around his offense. Ending the season 2-7 after 3 wins is all on Dan and indicative of an extremely poor job.
