    You think some recruits were watching and might want to play for this guy?

    So, we're all cool with Miller again? Just wanted to make sure.

    And yes, that is an awesome picture. I hope it is framed and hangs large in Dal Ward, and also the homes of Ryan Miller and Coach Embree.

    I posted it because I love the passion of our coach. Miller? Meh. Good look to him in his life after football (which began today).

    They say blood is thicker than water. CU runs through Embree's (and EB's too) veins and it shows. I have heard some of the game announcers say that Embree is one of the most emotional coaches on the sideline and locker room in North America. If I was an 17-18 year old high school football star (I kindof was:) but of course I was too small to play big time FBS), I would be inspired by Embree and his passion for winning at CU.

    So my proposed caption is: Blood is thicker than water, come to CU and become a BUFF4Life.

    Embry needs to take that picture with him on every recruits home visit and hand it to the recruits mother. Since it's the mother you really need to recruit.

    When we have a roster filled with guys who want it as much as Embree does, we'll be back.

    Miller actually played a decent game yesterday, played with a little more aggression. If he had another year with this staff ?

    His football career is definately not over. With his measurables he is going to make some team fall in love with him at the combine. He won't be a first rounder or likely even a second but 3rd to 4th is a very good bet. From there teams don't like to admit it if a pick that high doesn't work out so he will be on a roster for at least one year if not a couple. With the right O-Line coach they can continue to coach the Hawkins out of his system and Ryan could end up with a decent NFL career.

    As to the picture, it does show the true essence of Embree. He is a guy who lives on pure emotion. He doesn't have any hidden agendas, he doesn't have the "public face" and the "private face." What you see is what you get.

    There is also no "my guys" and "his guys" only "Buffs." Either you're a Buff or not a Buff and if your a Buff you're all in and he's all in with you.

    Some of the seniors have talked about this as well. How easy it would have been for Embree like a lot of other coaches to write them off and go with his guys but he didn't. He did everything he could to make them Buffs in the true sense of the word. Down the road these guys are going to be the HS coaches or at least in contact with the HS coaches and you can't buy the benefits of this kind of feeling and loyalty that he inspires.

    No I stand the same way but it would be nice to have the same in state loyalty as he did.

    Players leave state. CU has many players who "unloyal' to their state including speedy and rippy. CU has been awful for 6 years and 4 games, hard to keep them home.

    So you don't think it would be nice if we had the in state loyalty like LSU has and we have O'Connor, Thurston, Baylis and Co committed right now?

    Give LSU a Hawkins for close to 5 years and you would see talent fleeing Louisiana like cockroaches fleeing a light.

    Good stuff in this post. I came close to crossing the line in giving up on the seniors. Coach Embree never gave up on them. They came of age as Colorado Buffaloes in 2 of their last 3 games. One at home and one on the road. I think Embree is accomplishing what he wants to accomplish regarding morale, attitude, and culture. I believe it will show up in the wins versus losses next season.

    GB had a philosophy that basically says a team will only go as far as the players want to take themselves. Embree's buys into this, too.

    The Utah upset was a prime example of the CU players (finally) imposing a victory over an opponent. This is the culture that Embree worked all season to instill within the seniors.
    How this culture transfers over to Polk and Major and juniors will be interesting to observe in 2012.

    If this team can sustain a player led nasty streak with everyone looking for ways to win games, Embree will have accomplished alot towards restoring the program
