Needless to say, I'm freaking loving the message board after this article. Here are a few quotes from Buffs fans and DP posters.
These coaches are career assistants and will never even hold a coordinator spot at any level. Bad hire Bohn.
Frei needs to check himself and look at the big picture instead of taking the, "McCartney didn't win in his first four years" route. Times have changed and CSU has set the bar in this state for football(I'm a CU alum). They went out and hired the coach we whiffed on and I'll bet any money they sell 3x more tix than they did last year. I can only hope CU takes notice. Until we hire a real coach we will be the doormats of whatever BCS league we join.
Embree is a bust; Anyone watching Saturday's game would agree that CSU dominated line play on both sides of the ball. Zone blocking requires great athletes and experience. After about 3 years, they'll "get it" IF they are smart and very athletic; neither is likely to occur. CSU was much quicker to react, a sure sign of superior coaching. But the biggest complaint has to be that McElwain has already shown the ability to motivate and teach, while Embree is still whining.
It isn't that hard to call CSU, "Colorado's" football team; Give them a 50,000 seat stadium, and a top 10 ranking for a few years, we can forget CU, where skiing is their shot at national championships.
Did the team look well coached yet under talented on Saturday? CSU did... CU, not so much.
I wish CSU the best of luck in the future. It is about time we had something to look forward to with regards to football in this state again, whether it's CSU, AFA, CU or UNC.
I am sure Embree cares about CU, but he simply does not have the personality / skills to do this job. Here we go again, giving a coach that can't do the job more time. Should have hired Logan a long time ago and we would be good by now!

One word to describe the CU coaches on Saturday: Amatuers.
Good position coaches may not make good coordinators. CU needs better coordinators. Embree needs to recognize this if he wants to save the program from more years of embarrassment. CU is always out-coached on gameday.
As much as I can’t stand CSU, kudos to them for manning up and flat out beating CU.

Surely anyone who believes that CU had superior talent on the field is delusional. CSU has a well-seasoned line on both offense and defense. They are considerably larger in physical size than the Buffs, their linebackers are veterans and played aggressive and plain mean. They have big running backs which Colorado can't seem to get, no wonder we can't punch it in from the 6" line when you have a guy carrying the rock who is 5'7" and 185. It didn't happen on Saturday and it is going to be a problem throughout the season.
First of all congrats to CSU for showing up ready to play and displaying a tenacity to hang around and win this game. Especially with a brand new staff. But as a 30 year season ticket holder of the Buffs it was the "basic" coaching errors that causes me pause

You may find it useless. We find it hilarious.
