    It's been a rough week filled with hurt feelings and lingering confusion for former Colorado coach Jon Embree over why he was fired just days after being assured he would be retained.

    I can't believe he's complaining he never got a reason for why he was fired.

    I'm so tired of Howell and Ringo and Thorbun being total softies for Embree.

    Denver/Boulder media is a complete joke. Ringo needs to leave. Hey Kyle...I think there is an opening at the BF North Dakota paper. You would be a perfect fit.

    He doesn't know why he was fired? Really?

    There was an apology in there. Embree, CU and the fans will reconcile very soon. This was the first step toward that end.

    It was a flat out non apology. He said the classic "I'm sorry, BUT... smear smear smear"

    I've lost all respect for Embree. Sad.

    Baby steps. He'll reconcile eventually. As he should. Jon has done a lot for the university, and the community needs to meet him halfway when everyone's ready. At least, that's my thinking.

    umm. he smeared the school. He continues to smear the school. Apologizing in a year does nothing. Apologize now, or forever bear the full weight of your actions.

    I'm with you. I think there will be reconciliation at some point in the future. The sooner, the better for everyone involved.

    That's crazy. Obviously the comparison was not apt between the two coaches.

    But what gets me is the remark about the list of coaches. He hasn't gotten a verbal response yet?

    **** you, pal! What the **** is this world coming to?

    I've got an agenda, see, and here's a list to support my agenda. You owe me a verbal response to this list which supports my agenda. Because it's my agenda, it must necessarily be yours.

    And because it's race related, folks buy into that?

    We owe you jack****, pal. **** off.

    However, CU does owe the fans and the school the most qualified candidate--regardless of race--that our budget can support.

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here!

    His comments are unjustified, but he has a right to feel injured. He just got fired. I am more angry at Klatt. His Buff card has been revoked.

    Klatt, you expect this from. Embree, you don't. Embree's assault and damage to my school is also far far FAR worse than Klatt's. Embree can't say he's a buff and do this, and keep doing it. He just can't.

    Embree is a Buff, but the way he's acting now? Well, with Buffs like that, who needs Huskers?

    Unbelievably disappointing. BTW...has EB been seen or quoted since the Utah game? Maybe he needs to jump in here.

    Technically, I think EB is still employed at CU.

    I will always respect Jon for everything he did for Colorado. Through good times, and bad, Jon will always be a true Buff. None of us can take that away from him.

    Now it's time to move forward. :gobuffs:

    I can see both sides. This is family drama, things certainly got ugly, but we are all Buffs in the end.

    Agree. Jon Embree is a GREAT BUFF. He just wasn't a good head coach. He answered some questions honestly, unwisely, and reacted to a situation with his emotions, as is expected. The media exploding is the tough pill. I'll always have respect and love for Embree, Bienemy, Cabral, McGee and Hagan. They love our university more than we will probably ever know.

    sure hope there is a program left after all of this. We need former players to step up now.
