I have been one of the most critical Hawkins proponents the last few years, but I must give credit where credit is do. GREAT JOB TONIGHT BUFFALOES. All around from the QB, the O Line, the play calling and the preparation, this was a much improved Colorado Football team.
Hawkins coached this team like his job was on the line, and Colorado played this game like their pride was on the line. There is no reason this team can't run the table against the doormats of the Big 12; Missouri, Baylor, Texas Tech, Kansas, K-State, and Iowa State. None of those teams are in the top 25 and all have the same or worse talent than us. If Hawk wants to save his job, and keep us believing, than he will have this team prepared and ready to win those games. There is no excuse to lose any of those games, none.
Expecting to win against Oklahoma and Nebraska is getting ahead of ourselves. It is realistic by all means to compete, but Hawk's JOB will be determined on how he has this team ready to play against the doormats. If Hawk can call a good game and have his team prepared this will be a step in the right direction.
That being said, I can't wait for the move to the Pac 10. How sick is everybody of playing against the Big 12 North. Hello Cali, goodbye.................Iowa?
F#ck'em up, F#ck'em up GO CU!
