This also became part of the foundation of the "Hire Embree" campaign. Basically, we needed people in place that understand the special circumstances at CU and are able to navigate that. Otherwise, the chances of a coach having success were small. Then last night on the Buff Chips radio show it was reported that Embree has been telling other coaches at the Pac-12 meetings he has attended that CU has special challenges and very few people would be able to be successful here (Embree being one of those few). Obviously, we have a theme. Can someone enlighten me, please. What is it about CU that is so vastly different than other university football programs that allegedly makes it difficult to be successful here? It can't be just relatively easy fixes like low donor support and aging facilities. Other programs have those issues. It can't be just the fact that CU doesn't offer "athlete track" majors of study. Programs at other universities with more rigorous undergraduate academic requirements and higher admissions standards for athletes are successful. So, what are the "special challenges" at CU? I've always wondered about this and no one ever says.
