    Bieniemy is a moron.

    There. I finally said it. Time to stop pulling punches out of respect for how great a Buff some of these guys were. EB has always been a moron. Charismatic guy. Great leadership. Moron.

    I'm still in shock we ran zone read with Hirschman at QB.

    I don't think that's what the call was, just botched the play

    Hmm, it clearly looked like zone read to me.

    I saw the play from their backs so I could be mistaken

    EB has to go, RB coach maybe, he plays favorites.

    Gawd, this team sucks. Even Hackinsees teams; weren't this bad. Except for Cody II, i mean webb.

    Thomas doesn't do a good enough job catching the ball right now.

    No one is doing a good job at catching the ball cause our QB is not getting the ball to them thats the problem but i still blame playcalling

    Excellent speed only helps if your quarterback can stay upright long enough to throw on a deep route, and can deliver the ball on target, in stride.

    Thanks for saying this. I've felt the same way. Just think, he could've been the HC right now.

    Can't even imagine it. What would that even look like? We dodged a bullet.

    I will go on the other side of this and imagine that the CU offense would be much better if Bienemy wasn't calling the plays.

    Yeah, I never got the impression that he was particularly bright from listening to his interviews over the years. I never thought he was coordinator or HC material. Embree, on the other hand, had me fooled. He talked a good game. I thought he would certainly be competent and possibly grow into a pretty good HC. I certainly thought he would be a step up from the last clown. Boy, was I wrong.

    There are so many episodes where a smart but low-skilled player became an excellent coach - and perhaps because he had so few natural abilities, he had to always think much quicker, more correctly than the more naturally-talented players.

    Natural talent is often criticized as insulating those players from understanding what it takes to teach, or 'coach up' other players. Especially younger ones, and in college football, ALL players will be younger, and always getting younger as the coaches get older. The ability to coach-up is so critical, therefore.

    I think Embree & Co have shown their abilities to coach-up and teach good skills. Yesterday was another clear demonstration on the home field.

    Nothing to say really. It's all right there to see. If a change isn't made, we'll know what we've been thinking all along.

    Wish these guys could get it done but they can't. Are we hitting in practice, the tackling is laughable. U don't have to teach much at the Nfl level, you get there for a reason. Teaching fundamentals should be a given. Sorry, idk what the **** these guys are doing.

    I don't think he is. Imagine hitting your professional ceiling, and the place and job that are both of your dreams. Those guys are hurting. Worse than we are. Doesn't mean something shouldn't be done by leadership, but my heart goes out to those guys and the players.

    Well....I appreciate their loyalty. But part of the deal at this level is coaches get paid relatively large sums to deliver a winning product. In fact, coaches get paid a premium because of the risk involved to them of failure (and the potential for lost income if they do not succeed, and lowered earnings potential for future work). So, I am not in the slightest sorry for them. They played the game (arguable, i suppose), lost, and need to move on....with their pockets spilling over with cash they do not deserve.

    Now, I would feel sorry (and grateful) to Embree if he quits and walks away from what is owed under his contract.

    I get what you're saying, but I don't think I'd quit if I thought I had the right idea, would you? (whether I'm right or not, as long as I thought I was on the right path).

    Hard for me to say not being in his position. But I think any rationale person taking an objective view would conclude that we are headed into a potentially irreversible path to football doom. I would hope that Jon would make that conclusion and save the program by walking away.

    That's my point. He doesn't think it's irreversible.

    That.

    I was too tired and semi drunk to type all that out on my iPad. Plus I was watching Discovery crash a B727. A show about crashing a a perfectly good plane with no pilot and measuring the effects. Kinda like what we did with a perfectly good football program. Then 10 worst landings came on so I'm optimistic....

    That is the shocking part to me.....how could he determine that it is not irreversible? I don't care how devoted and confident you are. Smart people recognize when they are in way over their heads.

    I'd guess it's a combination of stubbornness, ego, and lack of perspective, same things that always get me in trouble.
