    It didn't sound so bad in context.

    That was my fault. I thought it was significant in listening to it, but the context was lost when I quoted it. Hopefully it doesn't sound so bad now.

    Part of the point he's been making is that based on the last couple seasons he knows he can lose with these players. It's up to them to individually demonstrate they are players he can win with.

    Our depth is pretty bad we better hope we stay healthy. Specifically at QB and RB. Ruh roh

    Add cornerback to that. We would definitely not want to loose what sad corners we do have.

    We need starters before we can worry about depth there

    Watch CB be our strongest position this year. Watch Embree be just talkin **** in the media to make them all mad and they come out against Hawaii and put on a show...

    Exactly, that is basically what he is doing. Nothing wrong with challenging the young men to step the hell up. Thats what it's gonna take.

    Embree and Bienemy have walked the walk at Colorado. They have earned the right to talk the talk.

    Not that I doubt Embree's approach, but I remember how excited I was after Hawk's famous "Go play intramurals" rant. I was glad our coach wasn't going to accept softness from this team and we all know how that turned out.

    Until the first game, it's easy to sound like a genius. Was it Mike Tyson who said "Everybody has a plan until you get punched in the face"? I want to see how this team responds to getting punched in the face, until then I'm less interested in the sound bites - I've been burned before.

    Except that we're talking about known entities here. Most of these guys have played and/or coached at CU before. Does anyone really think an Embree team or Bieniemy offense is going to play soft?

    I am so excited that we don't, but we gotta remember Hawkins yanking Charles for running out of bounds on some plays. So they may start being tougher (and they are already 100 times tougher than Hawkins), but game situations change things.
