I've been to every home game this year. It has been ugly to watch. At the start of the season, I had no idea that this season would turn out to be THIS bad! It would have been great to win at least one of the Cal or Wazzu games! It is incredibly obvious when watching that our team has a huge lack of talent and play makers.
We CU fans do have something to be excited about with this program. We finally have the right coaches in place! Embree and staff are doing a great job convincing players to give CU a shot. It isn't easy! These kids certainly are not coming here to be on a 1 and 12 squad! But they are buying into the rebuilding that Embree is doing. The only way this program is going to head back to prominence is through a huge talent injection!
We haven't landed the big 4 or 5 star recruits yet. But it just feels like we're not far away from getting some! And after watching tape and my eye tests, I'm much more satisfied with the 3 and 2 star kids we have now over the ones we got in past years under Hawkins. We're getting players who have multiple PAC 12 offers, rather than having to beat out Army or Weber State!
The move to the PAC 12 was great for CU. We have a great home. We have a great staff. And soon, we will have the results on the field we're all praying for!
Oh, and in the mean time... I'm really glad that we get to watch CU's basketball team become a force!
