Colorado collapse all but seals Hawkins’ ouster
November 8, 2010

Perhaps nowhere in college football do the games on Saturday afternoons matter less right now than they do in Boulder.

Colorado fans aren’t concerned any more with the wins and losses. They simply want a new coach on the sidelines. It might be more accurate to say they want anyone leading their team other than Dan Hawkins.

There was little hope for Hawkins to keep his job at the end of the season going into last week’s game at Kansas, but following the Buffs’ historic collapse in the fourth quarter against the Jayhawks, there appears to be zero hope for him to keep his job.

Colorado allowed Kansas to win after leading by 28 points early in the fourth quarter. Kansas scored the second most points in the fourth quarter to win a game in NCAA history.

The Buffs have lost five straight and are the only winless team in Big 12 Conference play. Their next loss will officially eliminated them from postseason play and assure a fifth consecutive losing season.

Hawkins remains philosophical through it all.
