Recapping the day's Buffs and college football news.
Embree said he chose to watch film of only four 2010 Buffs games: Hawaii, California, Kansas and Nebraska. All but the 31-13 victory over Hawaii was a horror show. The Buffs weren't competitive against Cal (52-7) or Nebraska (45-17) and blew a 28-point, fourth-quarter lead at Kansas (52-45). Hawkins was fired two days later.
Embree wanted to see which players "quit" against California and who got "tight" when things went south against the Jayhawks. Nebraska, he said, was the rivalry game by which CU players were judged. Hawaii is the 2011 opener.
"We're not going to have guys quit in games this year," Hansen said, "because coach Embo is going to be in your ear about it."
