For Dan Hawkins, losing another coveted in-state recruit is bad enough. It will certainly give his detractors more ammunition in their arguments against him coaching the Buffaloes.

"Coach (Rick) Neuheisel gave me a personal tour," Mustoe said. "They really went all out and rolled out the red carpet. It was a good place, and I fell in love with it while I was out there."â†µ
