Hawkins Tones Down The Preseason Predictions

Colorado coach Dan Hawkins took the stage for media day yesterday with quite the quotable legacy to live up to. From his auspicious beginnings with the now legendary "Go play intramurals brother!" speech, to last years "ten wins, no excuses" and the more recent "cinch it up", Hawkins hasn't done himself in favors with some of his outbursts. So did we get any new additions to the quote board in yesterdays press conference?  Eh, not really:

You know, people here in the warmup period have asked me how do you feel and what's your mood? I was talking to Coach Stoops out in the hallway earlier, and I'm just always fired up to go. I really am. It seems like the older I get too, the sooner I get fired up. It always seems about July time you're ready to go and chomping at the bit. So very, very excited about that.

I think our strength coach will tell you we've had a tremendous off-season, again, probably better than we've ever had before, just in terms of our production and what kids have done. And our academic staff, just very fired up about the attitude of our guys and their approach to school. A bunch of new guys in the mix as well. That all has been really, really, really positive.

Depending on how the season goes we might have to come back to "That all has been really, really, really positive", for better or worse...
