A season that started with so much promise for Deion Sanders at Colorado turned into a major disappointment.
Colorado lost its seventh game Friday night, setting a losing record and ensuring the Buffaloes won’t play in a bowl game.
The loss was particularly ugly: Colorado and Washington State entered Friday night’s game tied for last place in the Pac-12, and Washington State annihilated Colorado 56-14, leaving no doubt Colorado is the worst team in the conference.
“We’re nowhere near what we’re capable of,” Sanders said via ESPN. “That’s the part of this that’s hard to digest. We have high expectations here, so this is extremely disappointing.”
Sanders’ son and starting quarterback, Shedeur Sanders, has been sacked 52 times this season, the most of any quarterback in the country, and the hits continued Friday night. He was ultimately knocked out of the match with what appeared to be a wrist injury.
“He had numbness in his hand and couldn’t really grip the ball,” Deion Sanders said. “But then on that second shot he found himself rolled. We decided not to send it back.
Colorado won its first three games but is 1-7 since. Sanders’ team closes its season next week at No. 22 Utah.
