First off, we all know that we have basically the youngest team in the country. I'm not the only one who remembers that am I? I made the mistake of participating in the chat room in the 2nd quarter today. My insistence for my fellow CU fans to back off of the fire-Embo talk was met with numerous requests to "shut the **** up" by Creatini and others. Some agreed with me, so it wasn't wasn't all total classless remarks. And the fact that so many are calling for Embree's firing has inspired me to write this letter to you. Watching the game today I noticed many issues of course, but there is one clear problem. There is almost a total lack of leadership, talent and ability of the Halkins leftover players. So basically, you are expecting Embree's Freshmen and Sophomores to lead the team? Not gonna happen. However I did notice a lot of great potential from many young guys. Which is a sign of two things. We have better days ahead and this year is a rebuilding year with little expectations of on-field success. I'd like to take a minute to review the position groups. QB - Webb isn't going to win any games and he isn't going to make stupid mistakes. He had a bad game today but its hard to do much with horrible blocking. I would not be opposed to seeing someone else get a shot. I just hope that Wood isn't even worse. hopefully Dillon or Liufau can be premier players in the future. RB - Powell is a stud. He was the best player on the field today and will be a great Buff. Looks like we have decen talent with our young RB's and will be a bright spot if we find linemen to block for them. WR - All young kids. The return of p-rich and some more freshman will help next year. Spruce is decent. Thomas has great speed and McCulough has some potential. Future looks bright here. TE - Kasa looks good. Want to see him get the ball a lot more. Young guys appear capable and Parsons could be playing next year. O-Line - Wow. I stated that we have an FCS line and I'm not far off. Outside of Bahktiari, we need major help. Our guards suck. Harris looks good and then bad. I can only hope that Embree's recruits develope fast here. Building a successful program starts up front and it appears to be our worst position. 100% made up of Halkins leftovers by the way. D-Line - Pericak is a beast. But he is all we have now. The freshmen appear to have potential but they're freshman and this position is impossible to come in and dominate right away. Future looks bright. Again, that is the FUTURE. LB - What was supposed to be our best position group really hasn't shown up. I see no heart, nastiness, flow or awareness. Major whiffs on too many tackles. Webb is decent, but not in Pass coverage. Wtf is Vigo doing on the field?! Need help! DB - the future looks very bright here. We got screwed on a couple PI calls but Crawley and Wright will be great. We'll see how the young safeties develop but they can't be much worse than what we've had lately. I'm not sure that Embree and staff are the greatest gameday coaches. Some of the play calls have been questionable at best. But they can't make the players more talented. their scouting and recruiting has looked promising. They are going to get a couple more years and I'm fine with that. At the very least, the next coach will be inheriting a much better team. With all that said, will some of you chill the **** out please?!?
