It’s about that time. August camp is here for twelve first-time head coaches.

The list includes Will Muschamp (Florida), James Franklin (Vanderbilt), David Shaw (Stanford), Bill Blankenship (Tulsa), Steve Addazio (Temple), Dave Doeren (Northern Illinois), Kevin Wilson (Indiana), Don Treadwell (Miami OH), Darrell Hazell (Kent State), Hugh Freeze (Arkansas State), Everett Withers (North Carolina), and Jon Embree (Colorado).

Colorado head coach Jon Embree realizes it's here and told the Denver Post,”Once you ate that wedding cake, now what do we do? I know the honeymoon is going to be over quick."

"I'm very optimistic about our team and our players. But I know we're going to probably be underdogs in every game we play.”

Embree is about to begin laying the new foundation, one that will be as simple as the coffee he drinks.

"Black. I take my coffee straight, with nothing except a couple Sweet'N Low. No foamed milk or toffee nut syrup for him. I'm not a fancy guy. I like to run the football."
