10:13 AM ET 11.24 | Will the university and Colorado athletic department administration decide to wipe the slate clean by firing coach Jon Embree and all of his assistants after a 1-11 season, admitting they made a mistake in allowing themselves to be pressured into hiring a former Buff two years ago? Or will they stick with Embree and allow him to remake his staff and take his offense and defense in new directions in the spring? It's conceivable Embree could meet with assistant coaches Saturday to inform everyone of where they stand. If he decides to part ways with coaches such as defensive coordinator Greg Brown or offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, graduate assistant coaches could be used to help fill the gaps in recruiting until replacements are hired. And that might not be until early January after bowl season. Brown and Bieniemy are assumed to be the most at risk of losing their jobs because they are most responsible for the Buffs ranking at or near the bottom nationally in numerous major statistical categories on both offense and defense.

I think they are just about to turn the corner. They just need 1 maybe 2 more seasons and the they win it all.

The better question is why do they still have a team.

Cause they're in the mighty, mighty 12PAC.

It might be easier just to fire all the coaches instead of just the assistant coaches.

I remember when Kansas State used to be this bad. Any division I football team can turn around their program.

It's too bad your team won't be going to a bowl game this year. The Big Ten really could have used Ohio State in the Rose Bowl this year considering how atrocious the conference has been.

Colorado could have gone to a bowl game if they played in the Big East or Big Ten this year.

I felt that way about the Lions ever since they drafted Barry Sander.

Embree doesn't seem to have a clue about how to coach, much less about how to turn the program around. His press conferences are filled with pithy sayings such as "it is what it is" and so on. He has absolutely no energy. I can hardly imagine he shows much on the recruiting trail.
