Colorado’s Shedeur Sanders responses to anonymous coach, who said he’s taking sacks on purpose

Buffaloes QB has the last word in a foolish narrative

Colorado’s pass protection isn’t one of the best in the nation this season. However, that didn’t come by way of trying to pad stats for Shedeur Sanders.

The Buffs QB has been part of the biggest story in college football and continues to impress week in and week out. Not everyone is a fan of what is happening in Boulder, especially on an anonymous Pac-12 assistant coach.

In a recent article by The Athletic, the source with no name suggested the reason why Sanders’ completion percentage was so high is due to stat padding and taking sacks on purpose.

“I think they want to rack up some stats for Shedeur, the Pac-12 coach said. “He really holds on to the ball a long time. I think he takes sacks because he doesn’t want to affect his completion percentage. He’s playing a little different than he did earlier in the season. Before he showed that he was willing to step up and escape through the B-gaps. Now, he’s retreating more.”

Sanders wasn’t going to allow this nonsense to continue without speaking his piece. He responded via Well Off Media by saying, “Whatever coach said that is Goofy. He’s lame.”

He went on to say, “Right had to God, he would rather have me than his guy.”

Sanders has 1,781 yards with 15 TDs and 2 INT on the season, which is second-best in FBS. What’s missed entirely from the argument of the anonymous coach is why Shedeur has the best competition percentage with the most attempts in the Power Five. In fact, he’s the only major QB going into week 6 with over 200 attempts.

Colorado continues their Pac-12 journey in Tempe on Saturday night with the Arizona State Sun Devils. Kickoff is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. ET with coverage on the Pac-12 Network.
