You have to dig a deep hole...
I don't see how you can criticize in a public forum when you have a personal relationship with the person that is the subject of the criticism. How do you do that?
Mac needs to step away and leave the program alone. If he cannot recognize what a failure Embree is then his football IQ has really dropped with age.
Sigh...putting this all on the young kids, how about we talk about a staff that ran a QB sneak on 1st down.
"We will not go through this again... unless we change coaches" - Mac
made the correlation between Mac's 1-10 season and this one. Mac was competitive and showed improvemnt, this club has NOT.
Call in people
Damn, Mac seems to be making a case for us going to the spread option oregon offense. Must be what he told Embree to do.
Nobody wins with freshmen and sophomores. For example, look how bad SC beat up on UCLA. SC had tremendous senior leadership at the QB position and UCLA has this young kid at QB. Stanford? A&M? Notre Dame? Oregon? None of their young guys contribute in meaningful ways.
Yet Mac argues that we should get an option/spread freshman QB to lead us back. Please.
Oh, and what about the defense Mac, which freshman are we going to find out there to fix that?
Anyone who uses this logic needs to be kicked in the nuggets. For every guy who starts 1-10 and ends up a national champion, there are 100 who end up sucking and never get it done.
Good god Mac needs to shut up
I agree with Mac's thoughts on the running spread for CU. I love that idea. He's contradicting himself, but I love the idea.
I just agree that the offense needs to be a cohesive application of the offensive ideas in use since 1994 with a focus on running the ball.
Sefo will not be ready to start next season and Dillon is not a spread QB. Not sure what they have in mind but my thoughts of Dillon running the spread with Embree and them coaching it....
Senile old fart!! last year they had 28+ seniors on the team but they barely manage to win 3 games, the excuse was
they are Hawkins' guys...This year the excuse is "not enough" seniors on the team, too many young guys playing... what
the hell, aren't this year and last year senior class, Hawkins's guys.....Full of BS, digging a deep foundation, more like digging a deep
Mac's main argument for keeping Embree is that changing coaches will hurt our talent. As has already been established, that's not true, and is in fact the exact opposite of what will happen. Glad we could settle this argument early.
Spread offense does not equal a running QB. Not every spread offense is like Oregon's. You have the Houston offense with Keenum, Tech under Leach, and many others.
"We have a Buff." Yay, I guess that's all that matters
As long as you have a running quarterback.
I get the feeling that guys like Mac and the other apologists feel like if they say the same stuff over and over and over again, that it'll eventually become true. Stuff like "we don't have the talent yet to compete with the rest of the Pac 12", and "Embree needs time to show what he's capable of", and "We're building a foundation". It's all a load of garbage. It's easily contradicted, and yet they continue to spew the same stuff. I guess they hope we'll just get tired and give up.
Ya , that would be nice. Not necessary, but nice.
That still doesn't address the fact that you would have Embree and his cohorts coaching it. They couldn't even coach the pro system....a system they apparently knew.....
My God.. This blind loyalty to CU Alum by Mac and some other Radio personalities is going to completely bury this team. Living in the past is going to destroy the future of CU football. Bleh.
Very true. If you want more information on the various spread offenses that Snow and Tini are alluding to, visit a site that Snow has previously referenced called smartfootball.com. Real good information there.
I sense mockery!
Great job if you can get em, ton $$$!!! absolute failure, but hey what the heck give him another year......Mac is out of touch, "Embree can talk any kids/recruits into CU". Don't see it, that BS was SOLD to buffs fan when he was hired.
