Dan Hawkins: Life makes no promises. It's an adventure with risks to be taken

Dan Hawkins answered questions today about a fourth quarter during which Colorado blew a 45-17 lead and lost at Kansas 52-45. According to John Henderson of the Denver Post, Hawkins also “sounded resigned to his fate when asked about it (job) on the conference call.”

"Life makes no promises," Hawkins said. "Life's an adventure and there are always risks to be taken and that's the nature of this job and this profession. I don't think you walk around with that haunting you. I don't think that's your driving force by any means."

"You have to do what you think is right, and you have to do it to the best of your ability and let it go. You win a bunch of games it doesn't mean you're a genius and if you don't it doesn't mean you're awful, either. It's always somewhere in the middle."

"I'm mostly concerned about our players and their feelings and their emotions. That's the thing I'm always most concerned about."
