cant find it anywhere - his web-page sucks
I hope Embree is sounding more positive now. I'm convinced that Bohn was dishonest with him (how else can you explain his reaction?), but results are results and this year's results were simply awful.
No clue if this is part of the interview but this came across the twitter." @greg_nieto Ministerial alliance asking for Embree to be rehired. "
Embree appeared to me clearly calmed a bit from the initial Press Conference. He was long term supportive of the kids and CU. Said he remains a Buff. He was much more relaxed and did not seem bitter. Zapollo seemed to try and stir it up again, but I thought Embree has healed substantially from the initial shock and was looking to his own future as well as CU. Hopefully current kids will catch the same vibe from him as it can only help the present situation. Not sure but there must be way to access at KDVR website. Wish they had waited a bit for the initial press conference but that is all history now. That was my take on it...
I pretty much agree with this. He was much more positive and looking to the future instead of pointing fingers or blaming racism.
The part I don't agree with is Zappolo trying to stir it up. The questions seemed pre-planned in an effort to clear some of the negativity that came early on after Jon's firing. I think Jon saw the ramifications of how he acted and wanted to change his stance quickly to save face.
I am no longer as mad after seeing this interview. I am ok with Jon now but still not ok with Bill McCartney (The man formerly known as "Coach Mac").
I think Coach Mac is seriuosly blinded by his loyalty to: 1) a former player whom he dearly loves and 2) his own personal crusade against his perception of racism. As to number two, Coach Mac has been looking for the opportunity to be the martyr....
Agree, it seemed like a planned PR interview, which Embree pulled off well.
Good to hear. I hope it isn't just because CU's legal team contacted him to let him know that he was flirting with a breach of contract with his accusations.
I'm betting that he is just no longer in shock and may be a little more rational.
Even though I was a huge Mac supporter and long time ticks holder, I am gonna put Mac on the shelf. Lefty I think you hit it spot on above. So what to do now? I am excited about the couple of guys we are close to hiring. Let's fix this thing and look forward! Embree contributed to that spirit in the interview last night. This absolutely can be something great again with the University and Coach on the same page. Not to mention us worn out fans staying behind a bunch of currently very vulnerable players....
Time to move on. I still love Mac though. I'll always be loyal to him for what he did.
Now it's coach Jones' turn.
Maybe he wants to get employed again in football and has come to his senses.
Papa Rollo just asked softball questions and made his opinion known that Embree deserved 3-4 years. In conclusion, pointless interview.
Getting ahead of yourself a little, or do you know something???
This blows me away. Did the people who hold this position actually witness any games this year?
Unlikely... Rollo probly caught the 10 second low-lights from Fox's Sports Douche. Nobody in their right ****ing mind accepts the last year as proof of improvement in regards to on-field performance. Embree is now stating he should have kept his job because of grades. To that, I say GOOD DAY SIR!
Why is Ron doing a sports segment? He left that game years ago. Stick with what you know Ron.
