The former NFL pass catcher expects the Buffs to “put the world on notice” in Year 1 under Deion Sanders. He’s the latest NFL personality to leave preseason camp impressed.
Earlier this summer, former college and pro coach Urban Meyer dropped by to see the team. He left surprised by the amount of talent on the roster.
In an interview with Colin Cowherd, Meyer spoke about his time in Colorado.
“I went to the meetings. I watched them practice. They have, I believe, 70 new players,” Meyer said. “So, I call this the grand experiment. I’m telling you, Colin. That was not what I expected… I saw a very good team. I saw talented players.”
Not only did he commend the team as a whole, but he singled out a pair of Buffalo players in Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter. Sanders, he said, impressed under center while he compared Hunter to former Florida great Percy Harvin.
Now, T.O. is getting his chance to see the program up close and personal. He dropped by practice this week to help Coach Prime out.
Terrell Owens gives his thoughts on Colorado football.
Owens stayed the week in Boulder as he took in practice and gave advice to players on the field. After having a few days to observe, he said the following about the Buffs.
“We’re putting that work in. These guys, hey, we’re about to put the world on notice. I’m telling you.”
T.O. expects big things from Deion Sanders’ bunch, but it will take a monumental turnaround. The Buffaloes finished just 1-11 last season, though a number of players from that roster are now gone.
Coach Prime brought in his own “Louis luggage” through the transfer portal in hopes of finding immediate success.
Most still peg the program as one of the worst in college football, with expectations outside of Boulder remaining low. A brutal schedule won’t help as CU faces TCU, Nebraska, Oregon, and USC in the month of September alone, as well as instate rival Colorado State.
We’ll see if the Buffaloes can shock the world.
