The surprise entering 2010 for the Buffaloes is that Dan Hawkins is back for a fifth season as coach. Hawkins is only 16-33 at Boulder and his 2009 team suffered several embarrassing moments, starting with the coach predicting 10 victories. It became clear after Week 2 — a 54-38 loss at Toledo — that the Buffaloes weren't going to come close. They didn't, finishing with a 3-9 record. The smart money was on Hawkins getting fired, but with the Colorado athletic department deep in debt and needed nearly $3 million to buy out his contract, Hawkins was given another chance.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
Last year, the site displayed 69 posters. This is poster No. 62 for 2010. Thanks to Justin!
