    Was probably the coolest thing I have EVER seen from a head coach. He was going absolutely nuts.
    If you haven't seen it yet you need to watch the highlights.
    If that doesn't fire you up nothing will, I ****ing love that man.

    Chest bumps and throwin his shoulder into guys, this a players coach, one that will be hard on them but I believe will always have their back. I am glad the team started to have some fun at the end of the season, that kind of thing will only help embo over the next few months

    He wears it all on his sleeve. Sometimes he really goes nuts, especially after the OL has false started again. Love the passion, I'll take that over standing on the sideline with a 5 cent haircut looking bewildered.

    You mean you dont miss this??

    I swear I could see the confusion on his face all the way from the south end zone. It really was pathetic to watch from a Division 1 football coach. That mixed with turning his back on goodman was all I needed to know about the guy. I personally hope UCLA calls him, just so we can boo the **** out of him.

    This is what a football coach looks like on the sideline. Calculating, Focused, and pissed off. Wish I could get a picture of him firing up the crowd from the Cal game. That was impressive to see.

    Come to think of it I think I made this exact same post about that moment. I think I like our coach.

    Love it. The guy bleeds black and gold.

    Didn't Mac bite EB's ear on the sideline? I swear I read that somewhere but my brainpan is all hops and bong resin anymore.

    New early in his 3rd year he was not the right coach. Everything about him makes me ill...He spit on tradition and killed this program. One thing is sure, Embree is​ a buff.

    Seen it quite a bit, type of guy u love to play for. He could barely talk after the game. Think part of it was emotion and part was he was so hoarse lol.

    I always forget that's there. Mods, can we keep that up until the next kickoff? It's worth watching over and over.

    WE can´t as we have nothing to do with the content. We only give them the space for their player on our page.

    Was it just me or did Speedy with the black shoes and tape look a lot like EB back in the day. Loved it.

    Personally, I'm just glad that Embree survived the season without giving himself a heart attack!! He clearly has a passion for CU and it was refreshing to see some passion on the sidelines from our HC.

    I didn't see him after the first score, but I did see him after the Parker Orms "personal foul." He was hard to miss as he was almost out to the numbers and I'm pretty sure he threw his headset. He was PISSED! I think that's equally awesome.

    LOVE the emotion! College football is a game of emotion, you need an emotional coach.

    I liked seeing him so fired up in a seemingly meaningless game, especially given his lifeless predecessor...

    But truthfully I'd like to have a head coach act like he's been there before. I kind of like Chip Kelly's demeanor on the sideline: confident, spirited and professional. Not saying Embree shouldn't show emotion, but once we start winning more often I'd like to think he'll be able to play it a little cooler.

    His pass rush is great but he really needs to bulk up a bit and learn how to set an edge. He got hooked too many times this year.

    During the Cal game, when he broke his headset and kicked it from the sideline all the way out near the logo in the middle of the field, that was one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

    I think the tide is shifting...guys are buying in and it's only going to get stronger. Watching the sidelines during the Utah game, I saw a larger number of players that were very engaged in the game. Watch the 20 yard scramble by Tyler, and see numerous guys on the sideline, fired up over blocks that were made to free him on the run. Watach the team's reaction to Harrington's TD catch. Watch Tony Jones' reaction to his physical runs. Embo is bringing in his type of guys and it's only going to get more unified. The only issue here is that we run the risk of getting players who play too emotional (personal fouls, taunting, etc), and having it bite us in the butt at a critical time. That said, I agree that college football is an emotional game and it should be played that way.

    I honestly have to disagree with you. I feel like Chip Kelly is more arrogance than anything. He has reason to be given what his team has become but I cant stand him. I am glad we have embo. I am sure after a while he will chill out some, but look what emotional coaches have done for the Lions and the 49ers this year. It makes a world of difference when your coach is just as fired up as the players.

    I was always a Tom Landry fan. "Mr. Stoic." HOWEVER, this program needs passion. Embree has a good balance of calmness and spirit, I believe. Oh, and I heard that, once, when Landry was a player, a receiver scored a touchdown on him and he chased the guy through the endzone and chased him around until he tackled the guy.

    does this mean we won't see leapfrog on the sideline anymore.

    As a counterpoint, can you name one truly great coach who celebrates like a madman on the sideline? Pete Carrol is the only guy I can think of who has had major success on the big stage.

    Don't get me wrong - I don't want a stone faced coach who never shows any emotion... But I also don't want my head coach making a habit of chest bumping players as they come off the field. Not the head coach anyway. I think there is a happy medium in there somewhere.

    Why don't you want a coach chest bumping on the sideline? What's wrong with being pumped the **** up about scoring?

    It's all about context. Nothing wrong with celebrating a big play once in a while... I didn't think there was anything wrong with JE getting pumped up in this instance given how badly we had struggled all year... I'm just saying over the long haul I'd like to have a coach who acts like they've been there before.

    I think of coaches like Tony Sporano or Dan Talkins celebrating like school girls after the opposing team missed a FG and how stupid & amateur it makes them look.

    I guess my point is that celebrating is ok up to a point, but it can become bush league. The line is kind of blurry.
