    Whoa! My first reaction, or thought, is that this is the only and best chance for the program. And, thinking about it, it would jive with the "senior banquet" thing.

    While this is what needed to happen, I take no pleasure in this. Good luck in your future endeavors Embree.

    It has now been confirmed by the AD.


    Reports say the search has been underway since before Thanksgiving.

    No doubt. Over his head. Management set him up to fail.

    This. I don't like to see someone losing their job, even with his mismanagement it sucks that this had to happen "in the family." Hopefully he'll land on his feet, but I can't take joy in this. It had to happen, but it's a mixed bag tbh.

    Kyle Ringo just tweeted that CU will make a run at Troy Calhoun. Not sure how I feel about that one.

    Holy Shiiii* Our prayers have been answered. Way to go Bohn, Nik thanks for spearheading and representing the interests of the passionate and dedicated fans on AB.

    Let's hope Bohn has a real budget this time to make a quality hire. Despite the challenges at CU I honestly believe (and history shows this to be true) that we can attract a quality coach to CU and we can win.

    Go get em Bohn!
