CU Falls, 58-0: Beginning of the End of the Dan Hawkins' Era?

Stuart WhitehairAnalyst INovember 21, 2016

Greetings, Buff fans, from CU At The Game.
First, I would like to congratulate you on your loyalty to the CU program. Even going so far as to open this story after the 58-0 drubbing at the hands of Missouri. That shows you are a true Buff fan.
I hope to reward your loyalty. On the site, I have, as I do every week, put together a recap of the game. There aren’t many highlights there, so you will be forgiven if you skim through that section. (Someday, I hope we’ll be able to look back at this game and laugh about it, in the same half-painful way we now can laugh about the losses to Drake).
There are two essays for you to consider. The first "Beginning of the End?" brings into question whether the Missouri game will someday, in the not too distant future, be looked upon as the beginning of the downward spiral of the Dan Hawkins’ era. Will the Buffs rebound? Can they?
The second essay, "Shut Out String", takes a look at the last of the championship era statistics to fall. Dave Plati’s release to the media devoted two pages each week to the CU scoring streak, dating back to 1988. In lieu of a "Going Down in History" segment (not much to brag about in that area this week), I hope you will take a look at this second essay.
[On a lighter and brighter note, I, along with two other Buff loyalists, will be making the trek to College Station for the A&M game this weekend. It will be my first sojourn to the land of Midnight Yell Practice and the 12th man. While I hope to be able to report on a positive game outcome, please be sure to check out the game review next Sunday, as I will let you in on the sights and sounds of one of the most tradition-laden venues in college football!]
Go Buffs!
