For Mike MacIntyre, patience is definitely a virtue as he tries to turn around Colorado

First-year Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre readily admits he's never been all that patient a person.

So when he saw his team regress in their rebuilding efforts last weekend against Arizona, he was a tad bit agitated. MacIntyre put his concern level at "very" in the aftermath of a 44-20 loss in which his defense allowed 405 yards rushing.

After hours spent reviewing the film, though, MacIntyre had a change of heart and insisted the performance wasn't as frustrating as he first surmised.

Overall, MacIntyre appreciates the direction the Buffaloes (3-4, 0-4 Pac-12) are headed as they prepare for No. 17 UCLA on Saturday.

As he's realizing, turning around this program simply takes patience.
