All the hype and attention surrounding the Colorado Buffaloes and head coach Deion Sanders was smothered by the Oregon Ducks on Saturday. The nation’s No. 10 team kicked ass and sent No. 19 Colorado back to Boulder to lick its wounds. This is one of those losses that will stick with Colorado for some time and could be difficult to overcome. The final score of 42-6 makes it sound closer than it was.
“No excuses, no nothing. Their coaches have done a lot of work preparing their team. Obviously we didn’t do that… That was a really good old fashioned kick in the ass.”
Coach Prime After the game he got his butt kicked like he was supposed to. Kicking butt might be an understatement. It was one of those vengeful beatings from the Old Testament. For the athletes who played for Sanders at Colorado, however, it should have been an eye-opening experience. This is what the Buffaloes can expect every week in the Pac-12 Conference. Teams want to eliminate the Buffaloes with no regrets.
“Teams are trying to beat me, they’re not trying to beat our team.” Sanders said. “They keep forgetting that I don’t play anymore. I had a great career. I have a gold jacket. “
This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Opposing coaches, players and fans across the country are in their feelings, waiting for the opportunity to put the brakes on this hype train led by Prime Time. Ducks Head coach Dan Lanning had a lot to say leading up to the game, and his Ducks immediately backed up those words. When you talk nonsense and then back it up, like Oregon did Saturday, it’s hard to find fault with anything that’s said.
“Routed in substance, not at lightning speed.”
“The Cinderella story is 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧. They fight for clicks, we fight for wins.”
Coaches motivate their teams in a variety of ways. Sanders and his young people should now realize that every team they face this season has a personal vendetta against them. Whether it’s ingrained or not, every opponent wants to show the world that Colorado isn’t worth the hype.
While the loss to Oregon was ugly and will stay with them for some time, the Buffaloes need to put it on the back burner and prepare for USC next week. The Trojans are currently ranked 5th in the nation and, like the Ducks, can score quickly. Last year’s Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams threw three touchdowns against Arizona State this week and will look to continue the Trojans’ (4-0) undefeated season against the Buffaloes.
Therefore the path becomes more and more difficult as the year goes on. After the USC game, UCLA, Oregon State, Washington State and Utah are still on the schedule in Colorado. All of these teams are ranked and waiting to get their hands on Coach Prime and the Buffaloes.
