It's Getting Hairy for Gary in Boulder

Give Colorado coach Gary Barnett credit. He's not a quitter. As for his team, well, that's a different story. Barnett is under fire again, this time for his team's play on the field, not its actions off it. Barnett says he doesn't plan to step down and expects to coach the Buffaloes in the Champs Sports Bowl. What amount of effort Colorado puts forth on Dec. 27 remains to be seen, but by all indications, the players have given up. Colorado has been outscored by an unheard of 100-6 in its past two games. No wonder bowl opponent Clemson is licking its chops. The final blow to Barnett's seven years at Colorado could come Dec. 12, when a state audit of his camps will be made public. Early indications say the university is in for a public embarrassment along the lines of 70-3, the score of the Buffs' loss to Texas in the Big 12 title game (some registration).

Colorado's football program has become a joke. It was only like 5 years ago when they were thebest in the country. They need to shut down and retool.
