Despite the Buffs’ big upset win over TCU this past weekend, Finebaum says they won’t be relevant past October and proceeded to explain why.
During his appearance on Get Up on Tuesday, Finebaum said, “At the moment, coach Prime owns college football. And what I’m about to say sounds like hyperbole, but it’s really not. He is the biggest name in college football today.”
The key word there is “today.” Because in a couple of months, Paul Finebaum thinks that will all change.
“They’re a really nice program. He is owning the sport, but there is absolutely, I can’t believe I’m about to say this, Deion, there is absolutely no chance — no chance whatsoever that they’re ever in the conversation past October,” he said.
Finebaum also wasn’t as impressed with Colorado’s win as others.
“I think they were fortunate, they were up against a paper tiger,” Finebaum said, referring to last year’s national runner-up TCU.
“Remember, Deion was predicted to win three games and I think he’ll have that done by September,” Paul Finebaum continued. “They’re a really nice program. He is owning the sport, but there is absolutely, I can’t believe I’m about to say this, Deion, there is absolutely no chance, no chance whatsoever that they’re ever in the conversation past October.”
Coach Prime isn’t going to like that.
All that being said, over on First Take, Finebaum admitted that what Deion Sanders has already done is going to get him paid.
Apparently, while Finebaum thinks Colorado won’t be relevant past October, Coach Prime is still going to be a hot commodity at season’s end.
“When this season ends whatever Deion wants to do he can do,” he said. “People are going to come after him with the biggest contracts ever in college football.”
