Dear University of Colorado,
Please hire Mark Mangino. We here at the South Stands rely on local sports teams to provide us with comedy fodder for our tasteless jokes and snarky blog posts. We feel that Mark Mangino would supply us with more than enough material.
We rarely write about or comment on CU athletics. It's kind of a shame. Hire this guy and all that will change. Rumor has it that the Board of Regents will not support his hiring. Please, beg them to reconsider.
Some commenters there apparently live in an imaginary utopia where the fact that CU is close to hiring an African-American coach is immaterial. "Don't care if he's green a purple", says one dumbass. Yeah, yeah, we get it, whitey. Race shouldn't matter. People need to pull their heads out of their politically-correct asses.
Dan Hawkins has finally been canned as H.C. of the CU Buffs. Better late than never. To say that Hawk's rein was marked by mediocrity is high praise. It's more accurate to state that it sucked. Colorado was a ridiculous 19-39 under 'Hawk. The 35 unanswered points K.U. peeled off in the 4th quarter last Saturday was more than A.D. Mike Bohn could take.
Bohn is promising a sweeping national search for Hawkins' replacement. Meanwhile, 70 year-old former head man, Bill McCartney is jumping up and down screaming "Me, Me, Me!" Bohn will call on him. He doesn't have much choice. It's all about the Benjamins. Millions of them.
