In the 1990s in a hallway in the lower level of the Dal Ward Center, former coach Bill McCartney began painting bricks with the date, the opponent and the score following big wins. The tradition was cast aside under former coach Dan Hawkins and the bricks were painted over. Embree has vowed to bring them all back as soon as this season's team produces a victory worthy of a brick for the wall. "There is going to be eight opportunities probably this year," Embree said. "The disappointing thing is you have the Big 12 championship team coming back here and they're not going to be up. They understand what's at stake and they understand what they have to do. So we'll see." Get it done.
