    Obviously I hate this because I love Embo, but to be honest, I laughed. Youre still a bag though.

    To be fair to JRK Embree making the CSU game a brick game was pretty ridiculous especially since even Hawk had a winning record vs CSU. to

    Agreed. I have to admit it was entertaining. JRK's just having fun and as Jimmy pointed out, making the CSU game a brick game was a bit far-fetched.

    Who defined the rule that a brick game has to be vs a team we didn't have a winning record?

    I actually thought this was legitimate for a minute. Would not surprise me at all if this game turned out to be a "brick" game when it is all said and done.


    If beating a ****** CSU team qualifies as a "brick" game, then I am sure winning our first ever Pac-12 game, even against a ****** WSU team, would also qualify.

    I love that we fans get to judge the brick game. I think Embo and staff have a much better feeling of what that entails.

    Only judging it based upon the standard CU itself made public in the weeks leading up to the season.

    This is what JE publicly said:

    "For everybody who walks in, that brick is going to stick out. That brick is going to tell a story about how all those other bricks got back up there. That brick’s going to be the one, when you guys come back here 5 or 10 years from now, they say that was the brick that turned it around. That was the game."

    If JE finally turns it around here, I don't see any reason why vs CSU is not a brick game. Perhaps you guys have better standard though

    Yes, what's wrong? So you are saying that we fans should have better judgement on what counts as "unique situation" than the them? And this brick game is a joke because the first win in JE's era should not count in our mind?

    "To qualify for a brick, it has to be a top 25 team or a unique situation that will count. For us this year, we'll probably have seven or eight opportunities."

    CSU was neither a top 25 team nor a "unique situation"


    I already said that I would give them WSU because it was the first Pac 12 game -- therefore it qualifies as a "unique situation."

    CSU wasn't a unique situation seeing as how it's Beerme's first win as a HC? Sorry but I think Beerme knows what a brick is.

    I think we at least should give coach the benefit of doubt to decide which one qualifies as "unique situation". If he publicly said "7 or 8" opportunities, I think he already counted CSU game in at that time.

    If you disagree, that's fine. But mocking it is just silly

    So Hawkins' first win should get a brick, too? Barnett's San Jose State game?

    Beerme's (whoever the **** that is) opinion of a brick game must be pretty ****ing low.

    Hawkins painted over the bricks so that's a moot point. Jesus have some faith in the coaches.

    And really? Beerme? Look at it closely.

    And when Barnett took over and bet SJSU, we weren't a terrible team like we are now. We had won a national title, numerous big name bowl games, coming off consistent top 10 rankings, etc. Totally different scenario than what we have in 2011.

    If they're going to hand out bricks for beating any swinging dick who comes to play then they SHOULD BE painted over.

    I have plenty of faith in the coaches. I think the bricks are a great motivational idea. But they have to MEAN SOMETHING for them to be a motivator.

    Situations are totally different. Did Barnett take over a team "burned to the ground"? Hawkins ****ing painted over it.

    Wins against a terrible CSU team should not count for "bricks" on a wall of meaningful wins- I don't care if Mick Tingelhoff is coaching the team.

    Putting a brick up because it was Embree's first win and for that reason alone makes it sound like he is more important than the team. Colorado beat Colorado State in 2010, 2008, 2007 --- should all of those games get bricks too?? **** no.

    Jesus H. Why are people so fired up about the GD bricks? Unless you're name is Fla Buff or Wyo Buff, shut your ****ing mouth.
