Why should we hold back expectations about Colorado and Deion Sanders?
Deion Sanders has done a great job in his first year as head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes football team. But Paul Myerberg says we need to bring our expectations for this team back to reality.
Colorado State head coach Jay Norvell is adding fuel to the fire.
The Rams’ third-year head coach fired off the first shots of the week before his team’s game against rival Colorado and head coach Deion Sanders by saying he takes off his hat and glasses when he talks to the “big boys” because that’s what his mother taught him by researching Coach Prime.
Since Norvell made those comments, Sanders and the Buffaloes have been vocal about how it gave the team extra motivation and questioned why people would try to motivate the team. It was also a headline all over the sports media in the week leading up to the game as they wondered if it was a good decision to publicly call out a rejuvenated Colorado team.

When asked about the comments, ESPN’s Recy Davis said he thought Norvell’s apparent hit was intended to send a message to the Rams to get them excited. Norville replied In response to Davis’ comments on social media, he once again stood by his comments and said Davis was the only person who understood what he said.
“With all the media involved in this game, not a single reporter asked me for my comments. One person got it. I wanted to send a message to our players and how we run our program,” Norvell said.
