New Colorado Football Coach Mike MacIntyre: “I Can’t Tell You When, But I Know We’ll Eventually Win”

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Colorado Stuns Football Coach Jon Embree by Showing Him the Door After Two Seasons

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Nobody on the planet envied the situation Jon Embree stepped into when he was hired as Colorado's football coach two years ago. The program was mired in shambles, and the Buffs turned to a former player to turn things around. Now, after just 23 months, the door has closed on ...

Colorado Buffaloes Surprise Everyone By Winning the Pac-12 and an NCAA Tournament Berth

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Colorado is about as unlikely a tournament team as just about anyone in the NCAA field. The Buffaloes closed out their season by losing three of their last four games, tying for fifth place in a rather weak Pac-12 Conference and earning the six seed in the tournament. That didn't ...

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

It’s Still Division 1 Football, But Dan Hawkins And The Buffaloes Take Their Show To The Pac 10

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Frankly, I'm a bit surprised Dan Hawkins still has his job as the head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes. In a 'what have you done for me lately' business like college football, it's hard to fathom that a big school like CU would be willing to give Hawkins another chance ...

Colorado is Making the Move to the Pac 10

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Colorado to the Pac 10 has been a conversation that’s been ongoing for the past couple of years.  And now it has finally become a reality.  It’s a move that makes sense in a number of ways.  First of all, with the uncertain future of the Big 12 Conference, the ...

NCAA College Football National Signing Day: It’s Division 1 Football!

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Does Colorado Buffaloes head coach Dan Hawkins deserve his own post here on SRI as we attempt to bring you the reactions from as many college coaches around the country in the wake of signing day Wednesday? Probably not, but since we're still culling other Big 12 coaches interviews, let's ...

Dan Hawkins On His Struggling Buffaloes

Friday, November 21st, 2008

Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins talks about the tough year his young, injury depleted Buffaloes have had in the rugged Big 12 Conference this year. A good interview from a solid coach.
