I commend EB and Marshall for taking personal accountability

    There's been way too little of that around Boulder the past decade. I sincerely like and respect our coaches. However, I refuse to let that get in the way of holding them accountable when they stink up the joint. Glad to see them address the issue head on, not throw players under the bus, and not try to sell us a load of crap about being a few plays away from being as good as anyone in the country.

    "Everybody is up for evaluation, including me," Bieniemy said. "I'm going to evaluate everything and how I do it. I'm going to evaluate who is doing what, but I'll tell you this, we will get better. We don't have a choice."


    "Well, not good enough," Marshall said Monday when asked about the ground game. "We have a whole new kind of system of what we're doing and we didn't execute well enough on a consistent basis.

    "We were one here and one there. When you get around teams that can really run the football, it's a down-after-down deal and that didn't happen on Saturday. That's my fault. I've got to prepare them better."

    or mention some unbelievable set of emails from unnamed prominent head coaches telling him "to keep doing what he was doing"....this after a home loss to CSU and a prime time thursday loss to a mid-major team...in a game that was never close.

    Time to start looking for another OL coach.

    I don't disagree. Our OL is better than it played -- and this is far from the first time that's happened.

    No, there really weren't a lot of positive things. I wasn't happy at all with the intensity. Just once, I'd love to see a coach say that.

    I appreciate the fact that they openly took accountability for their failures. However, when it comes to making better preparations, they both have been coaching long enough to know better than to allow those kind of inconsistencies during a game that was very important to the program.

    You are right in that there weren't a lot of positive things. Overall the intensity was terrible, especially from the middle of the third quarter on when good teams count on their O-lines to step it up and take control.

    I have been on record here before saying that Marshall has to go. He didn't do the job at Cal and he hasn't done the job here.

    That stated I will give him a little bit of the benefit of the doubt on this one only from the standpoint that what he said sounds to me like a coach taking responsibility for what happened and not throwing his players under the bus. I would be willing to bet that intensity will be discussed behind closed doors in a completely different tone but in public Marshall should take the heat and to his credit he is.

    I could care less if they take responsibility. This debacle is on them no matter what they think.

    After everything we heard from Embree and co. before this game, it was a total shock to see a team completely unprepared.

    Except for one fake play at the end of the first half, I really don't think it is fair for you to say that about the Defense. More concerning on that side is that they wore down so obviously. Looks like camp was too rough.

    I firmly believe, btw, that if Polk had been in the game at the fake screen pass, it would not have been successful. The guy that used to be known as Terror Smith blew his coverage there. Ugh. Safeties biting on double moves reminds me of WSU last year.

    I wasn't really trying to single out the defense.

    Just thought I'd post HWSNBN's post Montana State-loss quotes. We are gutted, but we are unequivocably in a better place today.

    Yes, but you were lumping them in with a really pathetic performance by the O.
