The Colorado Buffaloes are back in the national college football spotlight for the first time in nearly three decades.

And the reality it, it all comes down to one man: Deion Sanders.

The Hall of Fame cornerback and legendary personality took over the Buffs job after spending three seasons as the head coach at FCS program Jackson State.

He helped turned the Tigers into one of the nation’s top HBCU programs and recruited well above what anybody could have reasonably expected.

The move to Colorado came with great expectations, but also a ton of criticism. Many believed Sanders’ way of roster building (with over 50 players leaving in the transfer portal) wasn’t the “right way”, and that the Buffaloes would struggle massively this season.

Sanders and Colorado began to prove those doubters wrong in week one with a massive upset victory over TCU.

And Sanders wasn’t shy about addressing his haters afterward.

‘We’re doing things that have never been done and that makes people uncomfortable. When you see a confident black man sitting up here talking his talk and walking his walk, coaching 75 percent African-Americans in the locker room, that’s kind of threatening. Oh, they don’t like that…but guess what, we’re going to consistently do what we do, becomes I’m here and I ain’t going nowhere, and I’m about to get comfortable in a minute.”

Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff headed to Colorado in Week 2 as the Buffaloes hosted Nebraska.

And unsurprisingly, Sanders made an entrance fit for a king when he appeared on the show.

Sanders rolled up on his own personal golf cart. He was then escorted by security through a mob of fans chanting his name.

The vibes is Boulder these days are downright immaculate. And it’s clear that Colorado fans are all the way on Coach Prime.
