    It took two games more than Colorado coach Jon Embree would have liked, but when his team defeated Colorado State on Saturday in Denver, it restored a tradition in Boulder that had been cast aside in recent years.

    Pathetic to think that beating a bad CSU team qualifies for a "brick."

    And with that, the concept of the brick game has been completely demeaned....

    Does anyone know what game was the first true brick game? I have conflicted feelings on this...

    It is disappointing in some ways, but maybe it's only a brick game b/c it's the first game won in the Embree era. It wouldn't have mattered who they played. But from this point forth, csu should never be a brick game again.

    So if we had beaten an NAIA school that would have warranted a brick?

    Here is the official CU comment on the bricks, from back in August --- read this and tell me where Saturday's CSU game fits in.

    Maybe any first win on our schedule (too bad it was csu) but you're right, Saturday's win doesn't fit in according to that description.

    Embree had to give them a brick for this. By all accounts he has been kicking their asses since he took over and many kids left or were asked to leave the program. They also lost their first two games, one was a heart-breaker. The shadow of sucktitude from D2 loomed far too large and nearly all of these kids had been duped by that swindler. There had to be some recognition for the effort they have put in since Embree took over.

    Ordinarily a CSU game would be on par with any other non-BCS opponent, but in this particular case a win just meant too much to overlook.

    I don't care if he was Will Farrell's angry boss to them every single day of practice - rewarding the players for beating CSU is exactly the same as having the students storm the field.

    CSU sucks, and beating them should not be considered a big win in any way shape or form.
