Coach: Dan Hawkins

For whatever reason, Hawkins has been an excellent recruiter in his time at Boulder.

Though the Buffs haven’t had a winning season since 2005, the stars are aligning for them to make more noise this season. Divisionally, CU must deal with Nebraska’s running game and the moxie of Kansas QB Todd Reesing, but don’t kid yourself: the balance of power could be shifting in the Big 12 North.sportsbook prefootball 250x250 mybanner1 2009 Colorado Buffaloes Gambling Odds

The gems of last year’s recruiting haul were offensive lineman Ryan Miller, linebacker Jon Major and all-everything tailback Darrell Scott. All three should have prominent starting roles in Colorado’s 2009 efforts. Diminutive Cody Hawkins, the coach’s son, leads the Buffs at pivot and he’ll be buttressed by a solid front line, Scott and receiver Josh Smith.

The D is fuelled by a very strong linebacker corps, and punter Matt DiLallo is also a cog.

Team Strengths
The linebackers are strong top to bottom: JUCO Shaun Mohler, Jeff Smart and Major comprise one of the better starting three in the conference. Freshman DE Nick Kasa is 6”7, 250 lbs and a beast.

DiLallo spearheads the field position game and Scott should be fed the ball this season, even though back-up Rodney Stewart was 2008’s leading rusher.

Team Weaknesses
There isn’t a single returning player on the defensive line. Kasa shows promise, but the line is greener than a San Franciscan after a lunch of questionable sushi. The offensive line has talent in Miller, Blake Behrens and others, but they too are still very young. Two new unheralded safeties step in for the secondary.

Though Hawkins can recruit, this hasn’t yet translated to results in the win ledger. Consequently, the athletic director will be watching him like a hawk; one more sub-par season and Hawkins will surely be canned.

Despite the fresh faces on defense, there is plenty of returning offensive firepower and though the Buffs might not win the Big 12 North (and might be overrated by other experts) they should still see improvement.

2009 Colorado Buffaloes Record Prediction: 9-4

  1. Matt Martz says:

    While the rest of the Big 12 was putting up huge numbers offensively, Colorado was lingering behind and struggling to score points. With just about everybody returning to the offense, the Buffaloes could be right up there with the rest of the conference in terms of offensive output. Quarterback Cody Hawkins is once again feeling heat from Tyler Hansen. Hawkins took a majority of the snaps in 2008, but Hansen was always looking right over his shoulder. That situation has not changed in the spring of 2009 and it is possible that there could be a two quarterback system in the fall. With Scotty McKnight and Josh Smith back to catch passes, both quarterbacks could be very successful. Having Rodney Stewart and Darrell Scott in the backfield will help as well.
    Generally it is the third year in the new coaching regime where things start to turn around. That did not happen in 2008, but the Buffaloes and Coach Hawkins have plenty of excuses for the lack of success. The excuses should run out this year and anything but a bowl game will be considered a big disappointment. The schedule is never easy in the Big 12, but this is a group that should be able to pull off an upset or two…now they just have to win the games they are supposed to win.
