    Team meeting and Walk Through.

    Supposedly Embree killed it with the speech he's been working on.

    Here are the two videos that were shown to the team:

    Welcome Back 2011

    It's All Here for You

    I'm ready for the return of Buffs football. Bring on Hawaii! Bring on the Pac! Bring on the rest! CU is CU again!

    Crap. My eyes are leaking a bit. I don't know what makes me so emotional about those, but I want to go put on the pads right now.

    Those were sending shivers down my spine especially in Vid 1 where they guys were walking together hand in hand and it said, "We are Family." Dam

    "Welcome to the Buffalo Proving Grounds".....as a sign on the south fence of the practice fields was there under Gary. gone with Hawk. back in one of the vids with JE. Anyone know if this phrase was a McCartney thing that Gary brought back....or is/was it a Barnett era thing? Just curious.

    on the same topic, Rick had an uber-ghey sign on the practice fields that said "Did the Buffalo Roam?". always reminded me of Hans Bjordahl's cartoon in the Daily.

    I really wish we had a slogan.

    Mick, I loved the "Welcome to the Buffalo Proving Grounds" sign also.

    If those are as moving for an alum with no more ties to the program than every other ex-student/fan/season ticket holder - imagine what they do to a room full of guys who are the program.

    I wonder if a bunch of seniors just thought, 'oh s***, I've only got one year left!'?

    If I was a senior watching that video I´d have conspired with other seniors to plot my revenge on Danny Boy.

    Probably a lot of conflicted psyches in that locker room. Tears of joy (for the new regime) and tears of sadness (for the time they can never get back from the old regime).

    Every ****ing time I see Lawrence Vickers cornhole that CSU player into the endzone, I have an absolute adrenaline rush and want to rip somebody's head off. There have been many greater plays in Colorado history, but I don't think there has ever been a better attitude play.

    None. I'll see if I can find something out. Not like I have a lot of sources, though.

    Man - Embree gets IT. The videos rock, but it is a message that will resonate with college kids. If this team is going to have a chance this season, they're going to have to be tough, physical, and scrappy. Those videos highlighted that.

    we will see that play on every single CU highlight video for the rest of our lives. And I couldn't be more excited.
