    My disagreement would be based on the expectations. It sure seems like Colorado should have low expectations, but they really didn't wait around long this time around. I suspect that they, like Texas Tech, have grossly inflated expectations. Wisconsin has similar expectations, but at least the players and system is already in place, if not the money for assistant coaches.

    Keep in mind that Colorado ranks 23rd on the All-Time win list (and were at #19 before Embree took over) They don't have the proud tradition that we do, but that doesn't mean they have low expectations as a fanbase.

    John Embree took over a 5-7 team and promptly lead them to 3-10 in 2011 and 1-11 this year. It wasn't about waiting around & it wasn't about impatience. 2012 Colorado was one of the worst teams I've ever seen. They gave up 475 points last season and 552 points this season. Those were the 2 worst scoring defenses in Colorado history and they both happened to come during Embree's 2 seasons. That's not a coincidence.

    This isn't directed at you, I've just seen tons of stuff in the media that Embree wasn't given much time because of the color of his skin. That's a disservice to all parties involved. Colorado grew worse nearly every single game under Embree. That's why he was let go after only 2 seasons. They showed zero progress.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    Great hire by Colorado... Can't believe I'm saying that. MacIntyre did a great job at SJSU, and instead of hiring someone who took a 1-12 team and made them 6-7 (Turner Gill, Derek Dooley, etc.), he actually took a 1-12 team and won 10 games within 3 years, and has them ranked. He's a good recruiter and has a good, albeit short, record.
    He may bomb, but it is a good risk for them to take. My only thought is that it seems a little too similar to Dan Hawkins... Either way, if he can lock down the state in recruiting, that would be enough to make them better.

    As Embree said on his way out, the program's issues run way deeper than the head coach. Apparently, there is absolutely zero commitment to the program from the administration (Embree gave an example of how he requested chairs for his players to have at team meetings and wound up having to buy them out of his own pocket!) So good luck to Coach MacIntyre and the Buffs, but it looks as if the head coaching position isn't all that needs changing

    I would say any program that has been as low as Colorado for as long as Colorado has problems that extend beyond the head coach. But, they were doing pretty well until the scandal(s) hit under Barnett. Then, the program had to be completely recharged, and it never happened. I am sure some of that is the President's fault.
    But, last go 'round, they hired Jon Embree. They needed someone who could get stars from Colorado to want to go to college at CU, and he never had recruited.
    At least this time they got the hire right. Doesn't mean Colorado football is fixed. They did, however, make the right hire.

    Considering his career path and history, I'm sure Petrino is going to set down roots in Bowling Green for a long, long time.

    It's going to be great when Bobby Petrino plays himself as one of the bad guys in the next season of Justified.

    I work with a WKU grad, he is not all that happy with this hire.
