Things may not be going the way Colorado fans have wanted it to, but Deion Sanders is begging the fan base not to lose hope.
Love or hate them, the Colorado Buffaloes have easily been the most talked-about college football team in the country, surpassing many preseason futures betting markets with their four wins already. However, they've lost three games to Stanford, Oregon, and USC, but head coach Deion Sanders is urging everyone to "believe in the impossible right now."
It's No way we can be satisfied with what we see, what we know to be true, what we think, what we expect & what we need. We've got to get out our own way, out of our simple minds & Believe that we can have it. You've got to Believe in the Impossible right now. #CoachPrime

"It's No way we can be satisfied with what we see, what we know to be true, what we think, what we expect & what we need. We've got to get out our own way, out of our simple minds & Believe that we can have it. You've got to Believe in the Impossible right now. #CoachPrime," said the Buffaloes first-year head coach on X.
The Buffaloes got off to a red-hot 3-0 start, taking down the TCU Horned Frogs, Nebraska Cornhuskers, and Colorado State Rams. At that point, the team was on top of the college football world, but since then, they're just 1-3, their only win being a close call on the road against Arizona State. In Week 7, the criticism only amplified after blowing a 29-0 lead, losing in double overtime, 46-43.
Coach Sanders has certainly not shied away from the spotlight, including his sons, Shilo and Shedeur, who play for the team. A lot has been made about the Buffaloes bringing in over 50 transfers, Coach Prime talking about NIL openly regarding his son and a watch company, and there's also speculation that Shedeur was trying to sell merch on his Instagram stories during halftime of the Stanford game that they'd eventually go onto lose, including a decisive interception from the signal caller.
With four wins, the Buffaloes are two games away from heading to a bowl. Accomplishing that, considering the massive turnover and this being a program that won just one game a season ago, would be enormous. Perhaps this is a lesson in tempering expectations, especially for a team that allows 35.9 points, 316.3 passing, and 157.4 rushing yards per game.
On bye for Week 8, the Buffaloes come out of it against the UCLA Bruins and their ferocious pass rush led by edge rusher Laiatu Latu.
