University of Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins certainly knew “den mother” fell on his list of responsibilities, but he hoped “warden” didn’t. Unfortunately, 13 players found their way into the legal system in and around Boulder since fall of 2007, not to mention academic ineligibility and other tomfoolery.
Therefore, Hawkins has declared an end to the fighting and boozing and armed robbery and all the other all-American activities. However, he knows his staff can’t police all the players all the time. Therefore, he’s (figuratively) stapled nine guys together at a time in discipline “teams” and tied the fortunes of each young man to the others on their team.
