    That 4th quarter comeback was the most fun of the entire season. And that win did keep CU technically out of 12th place in the Pac-12.

    But 0-12 would have been nearly impossible for a coach to survive.

    In retrospect, are you glad we got that win or do you wish we'd lost?

    Does it really matter?

    When you look at the body of work of this team, whether there was one win or not is inconsequential. If the admin is willing to live with having the worst team in FBS, giving up over 500 points, not winning a home game for the first time in 120 years, being shut out at home for the first time in almost 30 years, giving up over 50 points in 4 straight games, etc etc etc, why would you think they wouldn't be cool with 0-12?

    I really don't believe 0-12 would even have been enough to force a change. As long as B4L holds the balls of the CU administration in their pockets, at least.

    So I'm glad we have at least one fun quarter to look back on...

    The difference between 1 - 11 and 0 - 12 is nothing. Embree would/will stay in either situation

    Either way we'd be last in the conference since Wazzu could actually win more than 1 game.

    WSU beats UW...THAT is a team improving. Improvememnt is not reeling off 8 straight losses, most of them epic ass- wranglings....

    The fact that it might take 0-12 with 12 blowout losses instead of 1-11 with a one point last second win against a 1-8 team in the Pac and 11 blowout losses just shows what a gutless, worthless, despicable AD/Admin we have. Sickening.

    Fire Embree, Fire Bohn, Fire DiStefano, Fire Benson, Fire cu2x.

    Long term is what I'm going with.

    I will always be glad when the buffs win and I will never be glad when they loose no matter the circumstances.

    Not better off. I don't think CU has finished winless in conference play ever. That's one, final accomplishment we don't want to change.

    Wazzou was a fun road trip; the highlight of the season.

    Until there is an official announcement, I refuse to concede that Embree will be back.

    Great 4th quarter comeback, only game this season that didnt leave us heartbroken. 0-12 or 1-11, no difference, still the worst season I have ever witnessed. Still has Embree stamped all over it. Still represents losses to little brother jimmy, D2 sac state, forced rival utah and more blowout losses than we have witnessed in two decades. We havent made a halftime adjustment in two years. Ughh.

    Since I was there, I had to vote I liked it. Had I not been there, wish we lost.

    This year we were 0-3 in close games. Lost to CSU, Sac St, and Utah.

    Wazzou blew us out, but they gave us the game on a freak comeback.

    I'd rather have the win, considering Embo would have been back even after 0-12.

    We'll check that one off next year.
