Then CU experienced a drought at the QB position...Webb and Wood certainly were not the solution--the team members knew it. Up until this past year, CU hasn't had a strong RB since Speedy departed after the 2011 season..a true RB who could set up blocks and patiently hit the holes..CU hasn't utilized the TE position since the 2011 season...Look at the studs who have populated the Pac 12 rosters at Stanford, UWash, UCLA, etc...CU has totally neglected that position...the linebacker corps has been scary thin...CU paid for that in the 2012-2014 seasons...in an ideal world, CU would have a 225-240 thumper in the middle and let Addy run sideline to sideline..seems like the squad is still a year a way from recruiting and developing a Pac 12 squad of LBers...besides Addy, I don't see many other CU linebackers who would start on other teams in the Pac12. I applaud MM's recent hires..and most importantly, the squad has seen the huge uptick in coaching. During the Embo tenure, verbal spats between Embo-Bienemy-Marshall were weekly affairs...hardly an ideal situation. It is very encouraging to see Nembot develop..hopefully the light goes on with Callahan...the OL and DL have depth that hasn't been seen in 6-8 years...great stuff...so, if MM can keep his staff together and the coaches continue to teach as they have...good times could be right around the corner for CU...unfortunately, the Pac 12 keeps getting better at a lightening pace--but finally, with some continuity with the staff and a huge uptick in facilities....the Buffs could be turning the corner !
