Embree said the best way -- make that the only way -- to produce those results is to have physical practices. "You have to make them hit," Embree said when asked how he makes players tougher. "It's how you train. It's a mindset. It's how you see yourself. "... You have to practice in such a manner that you can't hide. You got to expose guys. You've got to let their teammates see if they're doing what they're supposed to do so that they can't hide. You do those things and that will either make you tough or get you out of there."

2. Colorado first-year head coach Jon Embree played for his alma mater in the 1980s. Embree had accepted a job in television journalism in 1991 when his head coach, Bill McCartney, called with a volunteer coaching position. "He didn’t ask me. He told me," Embree said. The very first day, Embree fell in love with the work. "At the end of the day," Embree said, "Mac asked me, ‘What do you think?’ What I didn’t say to him is, ‘I want your job.’" Twenty years later, he has it.
