College Football Alphabetical, Week 9: What Art Deco And Notre Dame Have In Common - SBNation.com
A recap of all the Week 9 college football games, including a look at Notre Dame's embarrassing loss to Tulsa.
The CU defense likely won't know who will be directing the KU offense until Thursday, possibly later...Hawkins said the QB uncertainty isn't an issue in preparing for KU: "I think they're very similar in what they try to do to you for the most part. Obviously, each guy brings a little something different to the table. But I think in terms of what they're trying to do schematically, it's similar type stuff."
The decision last November to keep coach Dan Hawkins around for a fifth year has been a flop in terms of the results the program is producing on the football field, but it could benefit Colorado in the long run financially...
If CU had fired Hawkins a year ago, it would have been hiring a new coach and assistant coaches within salary models based largely on peers in the Big 12 Conference. Now that CU is slated to join the Pac-12 Conference next July, future coaches will be paid based primarily on salaries in that conference.
Hawkins is scheduled to make more than $1.3 million this year at Colorado. He is the 11th highest paid coach in the Big 12 Conference. While that salary still would be in the bottom half of the Pac-10, it would be closer to the middle of the pack in that conference and similar to salaries being paid to Arizona coach Mike Stoops and UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel.
Hawkins said the team suffered no major injuries against the Sooners and Patterson could be ready to play this week at Kansas depending on how the ankle progresses through the week of practice.

Soccer heads to the Big12 Championships one last time, and the Women's golf team is remembering the alamo.
Julie Seabrook has had the height, skills and athleticism necessary to play Division-I basketball. Perhaps the thing that has most prevented her from finding more success so far in her college career is that she`s had a tendency to take too much of her nice personality off the floor out onto the court with her...
Three years from now, Tad Boyle will benefit from Colorado`s recent run of bad preseason luck in the Pac-12 standings when Shannon Sharpe and Shane Harris-Tunks are fifth-year seniors. But losing Harris-Tunks to a season-ending knee injury in October could bust the Buffs` NCAA Tournament bubble in March. Just as not having Sharpe last season might have been the difference between Texas Tech getting an NIT bid instead of CU.
Jess Wallace`s school-record 66 highlighted a solid day for the Colorado women`s golf team during the second round of the 2010 Alamo Invitational. Wallace, a junior, set the Colorado record for lowest round by a Buffalo, besting the previous record of 67 that four other CU golfers held. Wallace set the mark on the par 72, 6,302 yard Briggs Ranch Golf Course in San Antonio by shooting a 1-under 35 on the front side and coming alive on the back. The Langley, British Columbia, native started the back nine with three pars, eagled the par 5 No. 13, then had three birdies and two pars in final five holes to cap her round.
University of Colorado women's soccer players Kate Russell, Alex Dohm and Annie Brunner were placed on All-Big 12 Conference teams the league office announced Monday. In addition to these conference awards, Amy Barczuk was nationally recognized as a College Soccer 360 Primetime Performer of the Week. She scored the first goal in the 2-1 win over Nebraska on Oct. 29 at home. The goal was her second of the season. Russell and Dohm earned their first postseason conference awards as they were named second-team All-Big 12, while Freshmen Dohm and Brunner were named to the All-Big 12 Newcomer team.
The University of Colorado women's soccer team will take on No. 7 Texas A&M University in the first round of the Big 12 Championship in San Antonio, Texas on Nov. 3 at 4:30 p.m. MDT. All of the tournament's matches will be streamed live on the Big 12 Conference website with Bobby Rhine of FC Dallas calling the action. Earlier this season on Sept. 24 the Buffs beat then No. 6-ranked Texas A&M 2-1 in overtime in College Station, Texas, which was the first time CU has earned a victory over the Aggies during regular season play.
