Why Colorado’s disappointing result doesn’t deter Deion Sanders: “We are about to begin cooking.”

SALT LAKE CITY: Thus, Deion Sanders’ first season at Colorado ends with a 23-17 loss to Utah, a six-game losing streak, and his starting quarterback son Shedeur being injured the entire time.

However, things could have been far worse. The Buffaloes battled back despite the injuries and a wave of flu-like symptoms until Utah (8-4) took control with 7:25 remaining in the game and used the final 12 plays to run out the clock.

Coach Sanders reiterated his forecast of greater things for the Buffs in Year Two after Colorado’s fifth defeat decided by seven points or less.

“We are about to begin cooking,” Sanders remarked afterwards. “We’re about to head out to get that groceries and make sure we do it correctly. You are aware of our needs. Everyone is aware of our needs. We will get what we need because you know it bloody well.

The Buffs finished with a 4-8 record, with no wins against teams that had won at the end of the regular season. The Buffs were hailed as the biggest story in sports following their 1-11 2022 season, but their six-game losing streak also represented a significant downturn after they began the season 3-0.

Ultimately, they were doomed down the stretch by an offensive line breakdown and the loss of their early-season swagger, which was highlighted by Saturday’s loss in front of a 51,595 sellout crowd at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

What else was said by Deion Sanders?
As the transfer portal prepares to heat up on December 4, one year after his hiring at Colorado, he turned his attention back to the future. He said that while he intends to pursue a “plethora” of transfer recruits, it may “cost” to acquire some elite players who demand monetary compensation for the use of their names, likenesses, and images (NIL).

He stated, “We’re getting there.” “Giving is absolutely necessary for us. You get what I’m saying. Although it pains me to say it, some children are expensive. Although I haven’t charted this yet, I have requested the numbers. However, when you consider the top few teams in the nation, you can see how much money went into putting their teams together. You know, we can sit here all day and talk about great coaching and great this and great that, but with all these guys traveling to these places, it will ultimately be a credit card swipe. And I am aware of that.

Sanders added, without providing further details, that he anticipated “a few” changes to his staff prior to the upcoming year.
