During his post-game on-field interview with the Pac-12 Network on Saturday, MacIntyre was extremely emotional, and was fighting back tears. He was asked about that at today's presser: "All 112 of these young men are really my kids. Their parents entrust them to me. And I have to love them, care for them, discipline them when they are being knuckleheads, help them to keep maturing, keep hoping, keep praying, keep working with them, keep pushing them, keep finding ways to push the right buttons. A coach's job is to make a player do the things they don't want to do in order for him to reach the goals he wants to reach. And when you are helping and pushing kids, when you see game after game that disappointment in their eyes, it is hard. You want them to be successful. And when you see that joy in their eyes and you seem them proud and excited and all that, it is just like a proud dad. It is an emotional situation and it should be. If you put that much time into something, it is going to be emotional. If not, why do it? That is the thrill of it and that is also why a loss hurts because you put a lot of time into it. "When I watch a kid go make a play, I think about the time he sat in my office and think about the time something happened within his family that we had to go through together. Or I'll think about the time he had a hard time where something happened off the field that no one else knows about. I see them overcoming that, that is what I see. I don't just see Chidobe Awuzie, I see everything about Chidobe. I don't just see Sefo Liufau, I see everything about Sefo. So I am fully invested into these kids and that is emotional to me. … I am just who I am and I am passionate about it and care about them." **************************************** That's the kind of man I want to work for if I'm a coach, play for if I'm an athlete, or entrust my kid to if I'm the parent of a recruit. Please win, because nothing would be better than seeing CU football start winning championships again without having to sell out and use kids like so many other places do.
