When they were undefeated they were talking trash like they were going to win the national championship. Let's be honest they really didn't beat anyone. All the ranked teams destroyed them and they were destroyed on Friday by a horrible team. The players on Colorado's team or thug's who talk trash but can't back it up. Coach Prime is the one to blame for this. He is all smoke and mirrors.
Yes, he helped raise sales because he's Prime Time not because he's winning anything. He's brought in a bunch of thugs. He can come up with all the funny one-liners that sell tickets. This novelty will wear off and he will be fired in the offseason. Watch and see! He will do something or say something that will lead to his firing during the off season.
Colorado football is full of thugs and primadonna's
Yes! The love the attention he has brought the University of Colorado. Nothing to do with his skills! Prime time is all talk and jive! Colorado is happy they won more than one game and people are paying to see Coach Prime with the false hopes he gives them. I will say it again, he is going to do something to get himself fired in the offseason because he must be the center of all attention.
Football's role in a university is fundamentally to be an attention generating machine. Conventionally that attention is generated by winning, but winning is hard and they've found a much easier way to get attention.
Long story short I bet the admin is fine with this.
Why do you call them thugs? Do you call the thousands of other football teams and players thugs as well? How many of the players have criminal records and are violent off the field?
Anyone who thought before the start of the season that they were going to be 10+ wins is delusional and doesn't know football. The team is much improved than last year and a financial success this season. Does Deion get too much attention...of course he does. Is he overrated as head coach....of course he is. However the two places where he has been a head coach (Jackson State and Colorado), he has made the programs much better and put butts in the seats. Colorado will be a better team next season. Expect about 8 wins next year.
Last year they were lucky to win one game. Rome was not built in a day and neither are college football programs. It takes years to transform a roster and culture. You go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had. He’s got skill players, but he lacks the big uglies inside to do the dirty work. It takes years to develop an offensive line. Be patient.
Visible Nipples in the Workplace Really Shouldn't be a Big Deal
also "barely" lost a few. This season was a great success in a multitude of ways. Better team, better results, huge national profile gained for recruiting. All good.
yes it could all blow up when you have a gun slinger like Deion, but he clearly is successful at recruiting and motivating. Thats 99% of college football. He's got the next 3 years to show us something with his guys and a good QB already in house. They did what they did this year with a disney movie cast of characters and transfers patched together with no depth at all etc...
Everyone knew they would be hard pressed to win out after the fast start. Great Offense zero defense. Give him 3 years.
