    Continues to reinforce that Embree is all about getting kids ready for the NFL and not f'ing around with gimicky zone-read spread offenses.

    I still wonder, though, why BB was his prime target for QB since he really doesn't seem like the pro-style QB he needed, especially with these quotes since it sounds like he really want's to drive home the pro-style offense.

    Good article and we will see where Embree goes with the QB. I like his conviction to a true system that we will establish and stick with over time. It is great to see him establishing and identity up front and sticking with it. We have lacked this for 5 years.

    I like it, glad to finally have someone with a clear vision, but I'd love to never hear the term "under the radar" again with respect to recruits we are targeting. 95% of our current roster was under the radar.

    with QB recruits this year, we literally have to go under the radar due to the new staff. The position commits early, especially the early emerging "elite" prospects.

    That interview gave me the opposite of upsetness.

    Ditto, but the phrase that irked me was 'a little bit'. Every kid on the team interviewed said 'a little bit'. Hawk's legacy.

    Perhaps Danny has an issue with "little bits." A physical problem for him?

    That would be "downsetness", I think.

    Embree said. "So you've got to kind of look at it immediately for next year and you've got to look at the big picture."

    What happened to the little things? I was starting to get behind that.............

    Some of his comments are backwards. Berglund would be a fantastic spread QB. Since he decommited, all of the sudden his style doesn't fit us?

    Further, why is Embo dissing the running QB / spread-option offense? After all, that's what CU was known for during our glory days. Maybe he's still bitter that Mac implemented the wishbone while he was in school, and it cut down on his numbers.

    Are you remotely aware of the football differences between the option we ran and the spread/zone read option people play now?

    If so many of us are traditionalists, why is the pro-style offense more popular on this board than the option/spread?

    Some of you call the pro-style "smashmouth" football, yet what would you call the running styles of Bieniemy and Salaam, who played in an option system?

    maybe he has been coaching in the big leagues, and know pro offenses, and wants kids who want to learn how to play in the big leagues. Not kids who are great in a gimmick offense but not so good at the NFL level. Attract more NFL caliber kids to CU.

    Salaam did not play in an option system. Kordell was a gifted running QB, but that offense didn't employ a lot of option. When you have receivers like Westbrook, Carruth, Kidd and Fauria, you damn well better throw the rock around a bit.

    Yep. The new-age spread took the option offense and added some more passing, namely short stuff. You know, like bubble screens. Why does Embo think this offense is beneath him?

    1.) Hawk's offense (whatever it was that he ran) was more pro-style than spread... and it failed miserably.
    2.) Most elite programs run the spread, including the two team in the BCS title game.
    3.) The spread is gimmicky for a reason... it neutralizes talent gaps with schemes. This explains Oregon playing for the title with a bunch of 3-star recruits. Considering that our roster is low on talent, wouldn't we want to maximize this talent with a scheme?
    4.) The pro-style offense is easier to defend, especially if your skill players aren't 5-star guys (which we don't have)

    This. Our big pitch is going to be that the staff and system at CU will get you ready to play in the NFL.

    The question is, do you recruit only kids that fit your style or do you adjust your style to the kids you recruit? In other words, if they had recruited Berglund, would JE and EB gone to more of a spread/option or would they stick to the "pro style" offense?

    Which explains the consistently poor performance we have seen out of programs like Michigan State, Wisconsin and Stanford.

    If the pro-style offense is easier to defend, why are the pros using it? :huh:


    This line of reasoning makes little sense.

    Football is a game of talent, preparation and execution. The offensive scheme you run is irrelevant so long as you're very comfortable in running it. Clearly, Hawk didn't have the first idea what he wanted to do, offensively. If he wanted to run the spread, he recruited the wrong people to run it. There's no "easy" offense to defend if the players running it are well prepared and understand their assignments.

    ^^^^^This

    I don't give a crap if we go "pro-style" or spread or wishbone or T-wing or .... I just want Embree to pick a scheme, stick with it, recruit for it, and hone it to perfection. The results will follow.
