Jon Embree talks about his plan during introductory presser at Colorado

Moments ago, Jon Embree finished his introductory press conference as the new head football coach at Colorado.

AD Mike Bohn explained, “We’ve got to be united.  He has the ability to pull everyone together.  He is a Buff.  He can rally all the Buffs together.”

Embree then took the podium and stressed the importance of selling the tradition of Colorado football that many people have forgotten about.

Here’s some of the interesting comments from Embree:

 “I want this university to be the flagship university of the new conference.” 

“Like I told the team this morning…there are no excuses.  You either do or you don’t.  We’re going to get swagger back in this program.”

“Does it need to be a Buff guy?  Maybe not.  But how are they going to know the Buffs passion if it’s not.”

“It’s important the players understand who we are, where we’re going, and how we’re going to get there.  The vision and message will be clear.” 

“I would not want to do this without Eric Bieniemy by my side.  I want to thank him for coming aboard.”

“It’s a process.  It may take some time, but I want you to know that I’m not a patient person.  We’re going to try to speed up the process.”

“They can’t sell those mountains, they can’t sell this community, and our traditions.  It’s won’t be a secret for long.”

“People are going to know about it now, I guarantee you that.”

“The biggest challenge is raising the bar in how we do things.” 

“We’re going to be physical, both sides of the ball.  We’re going to be balanced, a pro-style offense.  When Colorado was at its best, our defense was hitting people.”

(on his plan to restore the alumni tradition) “Calling them and telling them that we want them back.  I’d also like to have former players as honorary captains during game week.”
