Shedeur Sanders and Colorado played that game

Colorado Buffaloes coach Deion Sanders defended his son Shedeur and hinted that big things are ahead for the program after a 48-41 loss to No. 8 USC on Saturday.

Colorado had to dig deep to actually make it a game in Boulder.

USC and Caleb Williams controlled the score for most of the game.

The Buffaloes were able to cut the lead to USC 27-14 in the second quarter, but a late touchdown pass from Shedeur Sanders to Jimmy Horn Jr. to cut the lead to seven was too little, too late.

Her father dismissed any notions of nepotism after the show.

“I am his father. I had an expectation for him and I saw him. He has been built and nurtured for this all his life. I mean, you won’t believe it, but I believe it,” Coach Prime said. “I mean, everyone in the places we’ve played before, I mean, the kid always wins , always prevails.

“He was always smart, intelligent and concise. He’s always been a competitor. He always raises the level of competition and always gives us the opportunity to succeed at every level.

“I could go on, but I don’t want to be like my father. But I’m only talking to you as a coach. I’m trying my best not to talk to you as a father, but the child can play without any problem. I know a lot of people doubted him and said I just pushed him into the starting position. What do you call it – nepotism or something? You all should just look in the mirror and slap at everything you see.”

Even though Colorado fell to 3-2, Sanders still has high hopes for the future of the program. “If you can’t see what’s going on with CU football, you’re out of your mind. You’re just a hater if you can’t see what’s going on and what’s going to happen in the next few months. Something is wrong.” move on, it’s your fault.”
