    I thought they only won 1 last year.

    That the one out of 7?

    We take a lot for granted.

    it’s really all about the jimmies and joes… from an article in the athletic:


    When was the last time you saw a picture of Sanders at a high school? Or doing an in-home visit? Or making a public appearance that isn’t an Aflac commercial? Does he even get on planes to recruit high school athletes? Does he leave Boulder at all for recruiting purposes?

    One thing is for sure — Sanders doesn’t recruit traditionally. He’s not a traditional coach, so it stands to reason he approaches things differently. But is he going to travel across the country to visit five-star offensive tackle Jordan Seaton of IMG Academy in Florida, perhaps the most important player the Buffaloes could sign in the 2024 cycle

    Even when Sanders landed Hunter at Jackson State, neither he nor anyone from his staff ever stepped foot at Hunter’s high school in Georgia to recruit him in person. You may call that powerful recruiting, and it is. But that isn’t going to cut it when you’re trying to build a Power 5 program.

    There may be reasons why he isn’t more aggressive in his off-campus recruiting efforts. He utilizes FaceTime to talk to prospects from all over the country and convince them to visit campus. Who wouldn’t want to hop on a plane to meet Deion?

    Also, Sanders has had some pretty serious issues with his foot and that may be limiting what he’s able to do physically.

    Eventually, though, Sanders is going to have to stop being a celebrity and start being a Power 5 football coach.

    It’s almost December and coaches are on the move. If Nick Saban can get on an airplane to impress a teenager, so can Prime.

    This is a critical juncture in the Colorado build. When the Buffaloes started 3-0, there was proof of concept of how fun it would be to play for Sanders. Colorado can offer things to prospects that other middle-tier programs cannot. Between Sanders’ profile, the beauty of Boulder, the promotion on social media and the income that comes with it, you’d think this would be a very attractive destination.

    But we’re not seeing it. The results aren’t there.

    And that makes it easy to question whether Colorado is ever truly going to get where Sanders promised it was going.

    Eh. 2 of the 3 are 2025 kids.

    Kelly had a 4 * de commit from LSU a few weeks ago. No articles about that.

    It’s prime though and he is loud so news will be loud. Will see how it plays out.

    Shedeur Sanders was sacked 52 times. Had to be a record. His back is phucked up now

    If I was a top level QB I wouldn’t go there with that oline play. Your career will end.

    don't know about individual quarterbacks, but number of sacks allowed by a team are right around that number for the national leader every year.

    yep that's the one.
    counting this year, it's now 8 out of 11 years they finish with either 4 or 5 wins.
