COLORADO COACHES = BEST SOUND BITES

It has now become official... the University of Colorado head football coaches give some of the most interesting sound bites around.

Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins recently had this to say during one of his press conferences….

What a great press conference quotation. It really has it all. He starts off sounding calm (although definitely annoyed), lulling you into a false sense of security. Before you know it, he whips himself into a rage that would make Lou Pinella proud. What really makes it a classic though is the fact that he drops a ‘brother’ at the end, as if he were Hulk Hogan cutting a pre-match promo against Brutus ‘the Barber’ Beefcake.

I’ll rank it up there in terms of all-time coach rants with Herm Edwards, Jim Mora, Hal McRae, Dennis Green and Lee Elia amongst others (click on the links, they’re an entertaining listen – I’ll also warn you in advance, Lee Elia uses some salty language).

Speaking of Colorado coaches, you may remember a few years back when former U of C coach Gary Barnett defended his players against allegations of raping former teammate and female placekicker Katie Hnida by essentially saying that it potentially happened because of her lack of ability on the field:

"It was obvious Katie was not very good. She was awful. You know what guys do? They respect your ability. You can be 90 years old, but if you can go out and play, they'll respect you… Katie was not only a girl, she was terrible. OK? There's no other way to say it. She couldn't kick the ball through the uprights."

Maybe it’s time for Colorado to ban all media from campus.

On second thought, if Hawkins is going to keep spouting gold such as that, let’s sign him up for his own reality show.

And he (Hawkins) said that during a booster lunch! All of us Buffalo alum are very proud. (No, really)

Thanks for the link to Dan Hawkins' outburst. I loved it! If I was still coaching, I'd hire that man in a minute.

Check out my blog about the clip:

Oh, that's tremendous. And I totally forgot how great that Lee Elia rant was.

You have to listen to the entire Banett clip before deducing he was "justifying" rape becuase she was a bad kicker. The question posed to him was what kind of kicker Katie was, and he answered. The media ran with it.

I think it is safe to assume, after witnessing recent Colorado football history, that the parents naturally assumed they WERE signing their kids up for an intramural team.
