QB conundrum continues for Buffaloes
Question of the Day
When will he pick one?
“We’ll see,” Dan Hawkins said. “We’ll just see when it emerges. No big rush right now.”
Would he consider rotating them?
“We might. We’ll see how it goes.”
About the only thing for certain is that, barring injuries, freshman Nick Hirschman, the Buffs’ ballyhooed 6-foot-3, 230-pound quarterback, is buried too far down the depth chart to figure into the mix this fall.
“I feel like if they keep me on my toes, I’ll do better,” said Hansen, who is confident he’ll get the nod.
Colorado is coming off a fourth straight losing season under Dan Hawkins, who is 16-33 at Boulder. The Buffs open against Colorado State at Invesco Field on Sept. 4, out to atone for last year’s 23-17 loss to the Rams at Folsom Field that started their spiral toward a 3-9 season.
“I totally know what he was saying,” Cody Hawkins said. “He said that not because he didn’t want me to play for him; he said it just because it’s a tough situation. I’ve had to go through a lot.”
Cody Hawkins said he has no regrets about playing at Colorado, however.
“It wasn’t his choice; it was my choice. He didn’t really recruit me here, it was more (assistant) coach (Mark) Helfrich,” Cody Hawkins said. “I’m totally glad I came here and I know it hasn’t been the rosiest of a career for me. But I’ve learned a lot about myself as a person and as a player and as a man. I think I’ve learned more during these experiences than I would have anywhere else.”
Cody Hawkins ranks first in school history with 46 touchdown passes. In eight games and five starts last season, he completed 51 percent of his passes for 1,277 yards, 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Hansen completed 56 percent of his throws for 1,440 yards and eight TDs with seven interceptions in seven starts, also rushing for 336 yards.
