    I guess it's time for another Mac pep talk to make sure we circle the wagons and give Embree at least 5 years.

    Surge!

    Yeah. We should all trash Mac for the current state of the program!

    I feel sorry for those who are CU and Chicago Cubs fans.

    so he bares no blame for Jon being here? and he doesnt deserve to be called out for claiming there is no other choice but to stay the course for the next 4 years? becuase he's Mac we have to blindly love him?

    The problem here exxon is Mac continues to insert himself into the conversation every single week. He will continue to do so. He is free to do so. He wanted this hire (or something close to it) and made sure it happened. But if he is going to directly affect the decision-making within the AD, he cannot be immune from criticism.

    It's hard for me to accept the attitudes of the many relatively young people here, who grew up being taught they are "something special" - who really believe they are "awesome" and that their immediate needs are what counts the most. It's akin to the belief systems exhibited by high-schoolers who change schools and abandon their neighborhoods (what a quaint idea) and friends, to play for a better team.I graduated twice from CU, spent over 10 years as a full time student and my support for the Buffs is similar to patriotism - this is my university, love it or leave it.I'm not sure how responsive this is to the thread, but I'm sick of all the whining. Support the players and coaches - they are here for along while

    I feel like this post perfectly sums up why most people are becoming apathetic.

    Critique is one thing, this has turned into something completely different, imo.

    I never said I agreed with the way Mac is handling things. We have bigger fish to fry than Mac and his supporters.

    Jmho.

    We all know Mac was wrong. You proved your point. Lets move on to the bigger problem here. The administration.

    Continuing to drag Mac's name through the mud gets us nowhere.

    Loyalty is earned. Everyone here would like nothing more than to increase their level of support for CU. But when we are not treated with appreciation and not given a vision for what we're supporting, I just don't know how I can in good conscience tell anyone he or she should maintain current support levels or increase them. CU's gotta give me something to hang my hat on.

    I don't think anybody is ignoring the administration. Pretty much everybody here is pointing at them as the biggest problem. That doesn't mean that there aren't other problems, or that Mac and his group aren't one of them. Mac predictably trots out the idea that every coach that starts badly is inevitably on the road to a national championship. It's the logic that bought HaLk an extension and a fifth year on the job. I can't really blame people for rolling their eyes when we start hearing it again, especially in support of Mac's hand picked staff....

    Are you guys all pulling this particular narrative out of the same rhetoric handbook or something?

    So whining upsets you more than losing. Good to know. Maybe we should drop down to intramurals and stop keeping score.

    Your patriotism analogy is ridiculous unless you live in North Korea where your blind allegiance to leadership is expected. I consider myself patriotic, does that mean I should keep my mouth shut if I disagree with the actions and decision making of this government? If we didn't love CU and want this program to succeed, we wouldn't give a s**t.

    I pledge allegiance to the the CU flag.....NOT to the flag of Bohn, Distefano, Benson, Embree, Brown...etc.....If I don't like the direction of the CU program, I'm going to speak my mind with words and with my wallet. I'm not going to sit quietly and watch underqualified people bury my favorite program further into the ground. Blind allegiance isn't patriotic....it's cowardly stupidity.

    Nope. You either have to love it or leave it. You're either with CU at every level and in every way, or you're against CU.

    It's exactly like patriotism.

    (Well, exactly like jingoism that people mistakenly call patriotism. I don't think my wife or my mother are as blindly loyal to me as some of you expect me to be to CU if I want to be a fan.)

    Why would anybody be negative? Personally, I couldn't be happier that our football program is the laughingstock of CFB, our administration has no idea if a football is stuffed with feathers and our incompetent coaching staff seemingly has a 5 year pass because they're part of the Buff family!!!

    I think there's an e-mail list you can get on if you want to keep up with the talking points.

    What is this thread about exactly? Mac and allegiance to CU? Not to thread jack, but I am holding judgement on Embree until the season is over. That being said, one specific criticism I have of him, if you can call it that, is that his personality is so drab. He doesn't get me fired up at all when I listen to him. But maybe that is his public face. (public with an L! I don't trust you people.)

    Maybe charisma doesn't matter. But I tend to like it in a head coach. Say what you will about Mac, but fe had it. Neuhisel and Hawkins? I think they tried to force being charismatic and failed. Barnett, I think, was intense and that played well with his players. He was charismatic in that his intensity affected the players. Embree? I don't know. What do you guys think of him in this regard?

    I didn't think Mac was charismatic at all.
