Shiloh Sanders brings energy, passion and grit to the field every time she plays football.
I’m not going to change it just because of a penalty.

Sanders hits Bruins’ Carson Ryan during Colorado’s 28-16 loss to UCLA on Saturday in Pasadena, Calif.
The call resulted in Sanders being ejected for the rest of the game.
Helped Buffs beat No. 1 at Folsom Field (8 p.m., ESPN).
They’ll be ready to go early Saturday morning when they host No. 16 Oregon State.
Aside from the flag and throw, this play has been the subject of much debate as to whether it is illegal or just a good shot.

“I’ve been studying football at home lately, I’ve been watching a lot of football, I’ve watched a lot of hit and run plays, and I’ve realized that in those situations, the referee is important,” Sanders said.
“You don’t always say that, even in the NFL.

I’ve seen worse shots, but they weren’t called, so I think it’s just the ref’s job.

Former NFL stars Richard Sherman and Rob Gronkowski took to social media to defend Sanders’ hit.
For many years, goal decisions have been subjective.
Sanders shouldered the lead and hit Ryan in the chest, but still drew the flag.
“I think sometimes the refs say, ‘Oh, he hit him hard.’ “They should throw a flag so we can see that,” Sanders said.
“We’ve seen situations like this many times in football, so that’s it.”

Sanders’ father and CU head coach Deion Sanders echoed those comments and actually defended the refs.
“I think we have the best principals in the country,” Coach Prime said.
“They have a tough job. So sometimes they miss it.
Sometimes explaining why is just explaining.
Of course, it felt good because (Shiloh) was our man. If I had been in the enemy’s ranks, I might have felt differently.
… So I think the officials are really doing a great job.

Shiloh added that she believes Sanders has some goals.
Because as Sanders, he has to consider hitting a little lower.
But it doesn’t change who he is on the field.

“I’m just one of those players who tries to make my presence felt when I’m on the pitch,” he said.
“I really don’t change.
I’m still fast, I’m still going full speed.
If I were in that situation, I’d go down a bit, but I wouldn’t change my style of play.
I’m still running towards the ball.
It would still be physical and I would be a performer.
I want to tell everyone what the Headache Gang is.

take the chance

Freshman receiver Caleb Mathis, the son of CU Royals coach Kevin Mathis, caught his first touchdown pass as a Buff against UCLA and didn’t get a single stop. He caught four passes for 15 yards and showed the confident touches he showed in offseason practices.

“He runs routes with good depth and always comes back and catches the ball,” Coach Prime said.
“It happens one after another.
In fact, it does it every day. Every time you take it out, it will do the right thing.
It has no explosion at all.
That means he’s running the wrong routes, the wrong plays, the wrong depth.
And (frontis Sheder Sanders) has chemistry with him. So he did this to find her.
“He is a consistent footballer and we love him.”


Running back/receiver Travis Hunter is one of 15 semifinalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation’s top defensive player.
… Coach Prime won the Thorpe Award for the third time in 1988.
At CU, two players have won this award: Deon Figures in 1992 and Chris Hudson in 1994.
