Deion Sanders Gains Ammunition for Next Week's Game vs. Oregon as Social Media Unearths Ducks Head Coach's Scathing Comments on Colorado Football Program (VIDEO)
Colorado State coach Jay Norvell takes a shot at Buffaloes coach Deion Sanders, sparking rivalry before game.
In the upcoming rivalry game against Colorado, Colorado State coach Jay Norvell has made headlines with his comments about Buffaloes coach Deion Sanders. Norvell took a shot at Sanders, who often wears a hat and sunglasses to press conferences, stating that he takes off his hat and glasses when talking to grownups. This statement has sparked controversy and added fuel to the fire for the upcoming game.
Colorado State's comments have not gone unnoticed by Colorado, who are preparing for their game against the Oregon Ducks after facing off against Colorado State. The Buffaloes have already received bulletin board material from their head coach, Dan Lanning, who questioned Colorado's success in the Pac-12 after their move from the Big 12. Lanning's comments highlight the lack of notable achievements by Colorado in recent years.
While Lanning's comments may be harsh, they do hold some truth. Since joining the Pac-12 in 2011, Colorado has struggled, with a record of 48-94. The program has only had two winning seasons during this time, and one of those was in the shortened 2020 season. However, with Deion Sanders now leading the team, there is hope for improvement. After a disappointing season last year, Colorado has already shown promise with a 2-0 record.
But before they face the Oregon Ducks, Colorado must focus on their matchup with Colorado State. This game holds significance as it is the first meeting between the in-state rivals since 2019. Colorado has dominated the series in recent years, with a five-game winning streak against Colorado State. They are heavily favored to extend that streak this year.
Overall, the anticipation for the upcoming game between Colorado and Colorado State is high. The comments made by both coaches have added to the excitement and intensity of the rivalry. It remains to be seen how these words will translate onto the field, but one thing is for sure – both teams will be giving it their all to come out on top.
