It's Time To Understand The Facts:

It is time for us die hard fanatics to understand the facts:  CU is not a football school.  Sad thing is, we aren't a basketball school either.  Talent doesn't lie, it doesn't fool you, your teams either have it or they don't.  Right now the only guarantee at the University of Colorado, is that little celebration they have on Farrand Field every 4/20, and that our athletic teams will be in the bottom half of their conferences.  I don't know if it's as simple as Dan Hawkins sending us back to the stone age, or Gary Barnett's failed attempt to run a dirty  program, but right now we have no identity, nor much talent.  

I wanted to write some positive posts this season.  I wanted to believe that deep down somewhere underneath all the patchouli oil  that there was a football program.  I wanted to believe that the new regime was going to return us to dominance.  They brought back the old COLORADO  mojo, the old jerseys, and the pants to match, but the results are still the same.  We don't have man power to go 4 quarters with Ohio State, let alone Washington State.

We'll give Embree and Bieniemy the benefit of the doubt, give them time to rebuild since they are starting from scratch. At this point we need to accept the facts: we are not going to be good for a while.  I am a Yankee fan so I don't believe in rebuilding, I believe in reloading.  Life is too short, who has time to start over?  

Call me in a few years when you can convince some athletes to come to Boulder.
