Vision Quest

Brothers try to pass me, but none could match me
No girl can freak me, I'm just too nasty...

While watching the strung out spate of BCS games, a couple thoughts crossed my mind with regard to my Colorado Buffaloes. Boise State looked tough in handling a damn good TCU team. Coach Hawk left BSU four years ago and since then they have won two BCS bowls, two undefeated seasons, and seemingly have playmakers all over the field. This despite their recruiting rankings have never cracked the Top 50.

“That is what CU is supposed to be, this is the reason we hired Hawk. This high flying offense and sneaky plays are supposed to be in Boulder” is what I kept thinking. However, the CU offense can’t settle on an identity, can’t get a QB close to the signal callers they have in Boulder, and BSU coach Chris Peterson looks like the real brains of Hawk’s Boise ops. The BSU special teams and defense have improved drastically since Hawk left.

Fast forward to the National Championship Game and the team that won: Alabama. Just two years ago, CU faced Bama in a matchup of 6-6 teams. CU made a spirited comeback in that Independence Bowl and had their chances to win. The level of play in the second half seemed even; Bama fans were raving about Cody Hawkins. After the game Hawk went and got the nation’s top high school RB while Bama made due with a three star kid from Flint, Michigan. Just two scant years later, Bama has only lost two games since, the three star kid won a Heisman, and look like a force for years. In Boudler, they’ve only won eight games since, the top RB is gone, and the future is as murky as it’s been in 25 years.

Both thoughts point to one conclusion that we in Buff Nation have come to the realization over the last two years: the Hawk hire wasn’t done with due homework and the man is over his head. If my lame thought balloons are this easy to decipher, Hawk’s boss Mike Bohn should be having full-on visions of his mistake.

Yes, but he keeps churning out those 'outstanding young men'.

I wonder if it's too late to just scrap the Football program since it's obvious the university doesn't give a flying fuck about it aside from the revenue.
