Colorado_mediumCU in 2011, Because 2010 is over " CU At the Game - A CU Football blog by Stuart Whitehair

Turn out the lights; the party's over ... - Time to bring in Dandy Don Meredith ... Enough will finally be enough. True, there are five games still to play, and there will be much talk in the Dal Ward Center this week about playing hard each gamep; about taking it "one game at a time". A bowl game is still possible, they will say. The Buffs are only 3-4, and need only to go 3-2 to qualify for a bowl game in 2010. The Buff players will put on brave faces, and say the right things.

Any realistic chance he had was doomed by back-to-back losses in back-to-back must-win situations.

The Colorado football program could be one play away from a full-blown emergency at quarterback. Senior Cody Hawkins is now the starter after Tyler Hansen suffered a season-ending injury Saturday against Texas Tech, but Hawkins is the only other quarterback on the roster with any college game experience. Offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau said coaches were evaluating all their options Sunday night and will come up with plans for multiple scenarios, but he didn`t have all the answers just yet. Kiesau said wide receivers Kyle Cefalo and Scotty McKnight might be the best options as emergency quarterbacks.
