Hours after the University of Colorado's latest embarrassment on the football field Saturday, athletic director Mike Bohn promised changes are coming without saying exactly what he has in mind in a brief interview with the Daily Camera.

The Buffs were stomped Saturday 48-0 by Stanford in the annual homecoming game at Folsom Field. It was the fifth consecutive blowout loss for coach Jon Embree's program and the sixth lopsided loss in the past seven games.

"We're not where we want to be," Bohn said. "No one is happy with what has happened on the field, players, coaches, staff, fans."

Bohn said he would not comment about whether changes will be made to the coaching staff.

President Bruce Benson said earlier this fall he would not support firing Embree after only two seasons on the job. Embree was hired in December of 2010 to replace Dan Hawkins, who was fired a month earlier after nearly five full seasons in Boulder.

The most likely changes Colorado would make would be assistant coaches.

In nearly two full seasons on the job, Embree's teams have already suffered more losses by 20 or more points than Hawkins' teams did in 58 games. Embree is 4-18 overall and 3-12 in Pac-12 play.

Bohn said he, Embree and others already began a process of evaluating the program earlier this season when the Buffs started so poorly with losses against Colorado State, Sacramento State and Fresno State and that evaluation is ongoing.


"Recognizing our shortcomings early in the season, coach Embree, his staff, our leadership team along with football professionals have been engagedin numerous endeavors to address our challenges," Bohn said. "We are working to correct voids now in an effort to not lose time before the end of the season."

Bohn added, "After the last game the intensity of reviewing all aspects of the program will increase dramatically with improvements and adjustments implemented."

The program has started receiving national attention in recent weeks for not being competitive and that continued Saturday with ESPN's SportsCenter spending a portion of its evening program addressing the Buffs' woes.

Colorado has the worst defense in the nation in terms of points allowed, but the defense actually proved to be the bright spot against the Cardinal. Three CU quarterbacks tried and failed to move the ball and the Buffs were shut out on their home field for the first time in 26 years.

CU failed to gain even 100 yards of total offense against a Stanford defense that was ranked second nationally against the run but 110th against the pass.

"We have three games remaining to include two at home and our expectations are to field a competitive team to go along with a competitive environment that we are most appreciative of," Bohn said.
