CU Buffs coach Dan Hawkins still thinking of naming son Cody Hawkins starting QB? Really?

Last November, embattled CU Buffs coach Dan Hawkins admitted that he'd made a mistake recruiting son Cody Hawkins as quarterback. But as of April, he still was undecided whether the clearly superior Tyler Hansen or Cody would start under center this season. And today, the Boulder Daily Camera reports that he still hasn't made up his mind. The delay is bad for Hawkins, bad for Tyler and Cody, and bad for CU Buffs Nation -- meaning it fits perfectly with Hawk's tenure as coach. Look below to see a media-day video of the two QBs putting the best face on their competition.
