Dan Hawkins wins over BCS out of conference teams at Colorado...
among those not in the Big 12, he's beaten:
West Virgina, at home in 2008 (17-14 in overtime during Bill Stewart's 4th game as a head coach)
Oh, and now Georgia.
He was 19-34 coming into this game. 9-12 out of conference, against mostly Colorado St, Montana St, Eastern Washington, etc. How did it get this low?
It doesn't really matter now, because Derek Dooley isn't likely to gift wrap another game (and this is a guy who couldn't put together a winning record at Louisiana Tech, and took over a program in shambles not 10 months ago). Nor is this team likely to somehow gain intensity out of nowhere like 2007 and knock off Florida, Auburn, and Georgia Tech. Right now, Idaho St becomes questionable.
Who's got two thumbs and is about to go looking for a new job? See above.
