Many of you commented last season on how CU looked sometimes like they were small, slow and untalented - well you were correct and to make matters worst they lost a lot of talent off of that team. For the good news, CU brought in a lot of talent in the last recruiting class which eventually will result in a talent upgrade. The staff totally was caught off guard by the impact of an inexperienced team - (they should of talked to Barnett) - this is shades of 2000 again but with less talent. Call it leadership, call it chemistry, call it maturity, these players are not playing with confidence on game day. They are tentative and trying to avoid mistakes instead of trying to make plays. The staff was not prepared for this - they spent the fall practices working on the hurry up and overlooked working one overcoming their weaknesses. The team looks good in practice but the old adage you play how you practice is not holding up. No one has confidence in anyone else - including the staff in the players and vice versa. The staff now knows this season is quickly turning into a disaster they may not survive. This is where inexperience of the coaching staff is killing them. This will be a major challenge to pull this team together mentally - the team is reeling and does not know how to deal with it. I will be totally shocked if Webb starts this week (my conjecture only no inside info) he has not been accurate and the Buffs have to find playmakers somewhere on offense. How this staff reacts will be critical to their future. They have to show some progress by the end of the season to assure another season. Remember some of those big money donors were on the selection committee and would be more inclined to lobby for Embree to get another season is there is some glimmer of hope. This coaching staff knows they have put themselves in a hole and they have to fight their way out.
