Embree is now trying to push any and every button to reach that layer where players will themselves to victory...We saw this with Barnett in the 2000 season where he threatened to remove the decals from the helmets - everyone laughed but that 0-4 team went on the road and beat a heavily favored A&M team. When the 2001 season came around and they lost to Fresno State and if you went into the Buff locker room after that game those players and coaches were hurting,,,they really could not stand the thought of losing. We saw the same thing in 1986 (which, IMO, was the turnaround season for coach MAC) when over the course of the season you saw the team transform into something special (they were 6-6 but the NU win was one of the all time great games) that paved the way for the success in the late 80s and early 90s. Embree will not be able to totally turn it around in one year and probably not within two years but it is a process and he will have to get his successes a little at a time. Yes, the talent has to be definitely upgraded but the overall attitude needs some adjustments also.
