It's Division I Football!

Dan Hawkins doesn't like to spend time around the house and he doesn't play golf. The Colorado coach has one passion in life and that's football.

So when the NCAA passed a rule prohibiting head coaches from recruiting off campus from April 15 to May 31, Hawkins had to figure out what to do with himself.

Hawkins now wants to take to the highway, a plan he recently discussed with athletic director Mike Bohn and Chancellor G.P. Peterson.

"I told them I said, 'Hey, let's rent a motor home and let's just start going around to every town in the state and saying, hi, and meeting boosters and alums and people and engaging people,' " Hawkins said.

Bohn and Peterson liked the idea and the itinerary is said to be in the planning stages.
