Week after week this fall, CU looked flat. There's also an
anecdote from the season opener against Colorado State. After
pregame warmups, the Buffaloes were fired up, bouncing off
the walls inside the dressing room. In came Hawkins, who
proceeded to make everyone calm down because this was "just
another game," and the team's deflated mood carried on
throughout that 23-17 loss to CSU.
