Former Boise State and Colorado coach Dan Hawkins cringed Tuesday while we were doing "The Experts" show at ESPNU. Hawkins declined to participate in the sliver of the show we dedicated to coaches on the hot seat. Having been in that position, he isn't exactly fond of it.

It's sensitive; we understand. But when coaches are making millions -- even if everyone doesn't have the same resources and recruiting bases -- it's natural for fans, media members and, most importantly, athletic directors to eventually question performance.
