    Make of it what you will, I am a little surprised Henderson is writing this after CJ and the AD basically pulled the rug from under his feet earlier today with the press release.

    Well, CJ and Klatt in commercial break let's see what they have to say...
    Henderson trying to stick it to CU as usual, "I know something you don't know..."

    EDIT: They say they're "doubling down"

    Henderson will do anything to contradict CU. Notice he still left that last sentence in as a dig, even though it has nothing to do with the story. He's a tool.

    Enough with the "black" stuff! You hire the most qualified candidates. If they are the most qualified, then perfect.

    I wonder if Coach Mac had to talk EB into coming as the OC.

    But I agree Jens, a bold article after already being slapped down. This smells of payback.

    "Take it to the bank and hang your hat on it."

    ****! A mixed metaphor! I don't know what to believe! Damn you McCartney!

    That quote from Mac was added after I´d posted this thread, FYI.

    Bizarre. Mac's statements or bizarre as is the confirmation, retraction, confirmation bs. Just announce and start recruiting.

    Sigh. So many agendas and it is hard to tell who is looking out for CU's best interest here.

    I don't think that's a mixed metaphor, but back to back metaphors for emphasis.

    So what will Bohn call this hire? A triple? A double? A foul ball?


    Very underwhelming hire. I'll believe when I see it if EB comes as the OC.

    Mac is going against the grain here for a reason. He stood behind Hawk when he had to know Hawk wasn't getting it done. He has been the good soldier. Something has obviously gotten under Mac's skin with the AD and or MB. Could it be the hatchet job in the Daily Camera from a few days ago calling Mac out over his comments from 18 years ago?

    Does JE come with the baseball cap? I hope so. I also hope he's not taller than our future QBs. :thumbsup:

    This is underwhelming...And I lost some respect for Mac for leaking this.

    Story just updated again...says Embree was escorted off the field from Redskins practice today by a member of the PR staff to avoid questions.

    Well at the least it adds yet another storyline for the UCLA game next year since his kid is a WR there...

    Reporters who write these kinds of stories often have a source that they can not name. Usually these people confirm things without comment or point the reporter in the right direction.

    Clearly he's on to something.

    Mike Shannahans comments are the most concrete evidence though. He virtually acknowledged the JE got the job. Seconded by Mac's statements who seems to have some how influenced the situation.

    I really don´t get Mac´s motivation for this. I really do not.

    Yes, I'm sure the DC media was hounding him for quotes about CU. :rolling_eyes:

    They would be hounding him about leaving the 'Skins.

    Yup, I figure being a Redskins employee makes you relevant to the DC media by default.

    We shouldn't have gotten our hopes up. Bzdelik and Boyle were also pretty underwhelming hires. Nothing new here. On one hand, I blame Bohn... on the other I just worry that CU isn't a very attractive place nationally regarding NCAA sports. Either that, or its all about money.
