Friday Buff Bites - Hawkins And Monkey

Colorado_medium Dan Hawkins' answer to Colorado's woes: Extend Dan Hawkins' contract - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF  - Yahoo! Sports

Hawkins told the paper he asked for the extension for "continuity" and "stability" in recruiting which he apparently believes the three years reamining on his current deal fail to provide – an astute observation, really, since no one else seems to think so, either. But Hawkins may be the only one still willing to operate under the assumption that the situation may be some sort of oversight that can still be corrected off last year's 3-9 disaster without, say, eight wins this fall. That may be enough for him to get his wish, but looking at the schedule, I can't imagine how he's going to get there from here.
