The loss to Sac. St. That is when I knew he wasn't the man for the job.....
Fresno State - they didn't just lose that game, it was a complete and total failure on every level of competition, strategy, effort, and execution. I've never seen a team so completely lost.
I will see your Sac State and Fresno State and raise you the combo of the Sac State/Fresno State.
After attending the CSU game and seeing how poorly coached we were, not able to make any sort of adjustment's, and getting outmuscled by a pathetic MWC team is when I knew we were ****ed.
It was the CSU game for me. No excuse to lose that game. None. That was the point where I knew Embree was in over his head.
that week was what ended it for Jon.
I will say when he chose Webb to be the starter. You had two guys that have been in the system for a couple of years in Hirsch and at least on in Wood. You then start a guy that was here for three weeks. I just have to wonder where we would be if Wood had been the starter since day one. The record might not be much different but I'm wondering if the offense would be a little more consistent.
Oh well, as the cubs fans have said. There's always next year.
When he hired a staff consisted almost entirely of guys with ties to CU's past.
a lot to choose from. wow, all pretty dire.
sacramento state...a long ways down from the post-Utah game optimism of last season.
During the interview.
I was willing to stick with him through the season in the hope that the last 4 games would show marked improvement. I no longer have that hope. The Stanford game was one of the most unenjoyable sporting experiences I've ever had. If I had the power, I'd make changes from the President down including regents. Clean house and begin all over again.
CSU game was when he jumped the shark.
Incredibly- the game exactly prior- Utah, seemed to be the game where the club started turning the corner. Now it looks much more like a dead cat bounce.
I'm not sure some of you are using the term correctly.
Jumping the shark is when you resort to desperate measures to keep interest, to keep someting going that is doomed for failure. It's not the poor performance itself, it's the desperate response.
When he locked down Fall Camp, he was ready to jump the shark.
The motorcycle hit the ramp when Webb failed to get the goalline TD against CSU.
The 2nd quarter of the Sac State game is when the coaching career is airborne.
The opening half of Fresno was the apex.
The Wazzou game was a defiant tabletop double iron cross with middle finger extended
The conference games have been the impact and resulting wipe out.
Then, no shark has been jumped yet.
This right here. Sac St. started the ****show in motion. It has picked up steam since then.
Last year when he threw his headset at Ohio State and nearly hit the official I knew he was in waaay over his head. I think he sealed his deal in the first quarter of the frenseck state game and became a true embarrassment during the interview that followed the wsu win.
so you are saying Hiring the "Alumni" was CU football jumping the shark?
i think one could make a reasonable argument that going to Mac nostalgia twice qualifies as shark jumping. we already did it with Barney...
are we a real football program or just living in the past?
Yes, actually I think that is a good example of jumping the shark. Good point.
Yes, that too.
Serious questions after the CSU game. Done after Sac St. If I had any doubts about it, they made sure to finish them off with Fresno.
I just keep thinking about Fonzie jumping the shark as I read this thread...embree is no Fonzie
When he hired Greg Brown as DC
Hard to pinpoint it exactly - but it was likely during one of his overly exuberant celebrations on the sideline or during one of his down-in-the-dumps finger-pointing press conferences after a loss.
I need more emotional stability out of my college coach.
What popular culture metaphors are more appropriate?
Point Elvis left the building?
Moment JR was shot?
Voted off the island?
I always thought jumping the shark was the point in the trajectory of a TV show where it was all downhill from that point onward.
Yeah good point.
That would have been 1994 then.
