I'm sure most of you diehard Buff fans have heard Coach Embree's post game interview from this past Saturday meltdown versus WSU. Sitting in my hotel room after the game, still pissed off, I booted up and was pretty shocked by his interview. Shocked and extremely happy to hear him go off.
Some people (mostly in the media) have been making a big deal of it in recent days, and that offends me more than anything Embree had to say. Fact is, he is an emotional coach, after an emotional loss, in an emotional sport. That type of frankness has been long overdue in this program and I KNOW most fans and more importantly, the players were glad to hear some passion about our Buffs performance come out. Fact is, we needed it, and I needed to hear it.
Any player that heard that and wanted to go cry to mama about it (I doubt there were any), should go do just that becasue we don't need them. Dan Hawkins might have, but Embreee doesn't. Anybody who thinks this kind of firely passion doesn't exist in football at the coaching level, has never played or been a part of a competitive football team. Go watch golf it you want that type of post game/round discussion.
What really pisses me off is the media trying to make an issue out of it, and after listening to today's Press Conference, Embree sounded completely neutered. Pity. I hope that doesn't last because it suddenly sounded like DH again and I can't take that.
So, on the off chance Coach Embree reads the Ralphie Report, please know that true Buff fans appreciate your passion, honesty, and desire to bring us Buffs Back To Prominence. Don't let that passion to win get squashed by a bunch of squeemish
pu$$ies fans. Remember,this is Divsion I PAC 12 football, not pee wee where everyone gets a trophy.
Enough is enough
