It's Officially Time To Believe In Prime

Since taking over at Colorado, Deion Sanders has said “We Comin’”, and we found out this weekend that the Buffaloes might be here.


Colorado escaped a shootout with 17th-ranked TCU with a 45-42 win. It’s the type of game every football fan can appreciate. Prime promised big and delivered. He has those boys over in Boulder ready to go.


Deion’s Sons Can Play


Prime’s son and Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders showed us all he can pay at this level. Many were skeptical about his game after his time at Jackson State.


The knock on Shedeur was that he wasn’t playing good competition at an HBCU. We now know that to be false. Sanders looked almost flawless in the Buffaloes victory, going 38 for 47 with 510 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions.


It became apparent that all the time Sheduer Sanders has spent working out with Tom Brady is paying off as he looked poised in the pocket in his first start at Colorado.


He didn’t force things and just took what the defense gave him, it paid off. Unfortunately, a couple of drops on beautiful deep balls might’ve cost Shedeur of throwing for close to 600 yards, he’s likely just happy to get out with a win.


Shedeur’s brother Shilo Sanders who plays safety made himself felt as well, as he posted nine total tackles with eight being solos.


Travis Hunter Is Must See Television


Everybody knew Travis Hunter was special coming into the year as he was the number one recruit a few years ago that shocked the world and followed Deion to Jackson State and now to Colorado.


It remains unknown how he does it. It felt like Hunter played every single snap against TCU. He was everywhere.


Hunter had himself a day in his Colorado debut. He got targeted 13 times and made 11 catches for 119 yards. Hunter unfortunately had a beautiful touchdown catch that was taken away from him after a review and dropped a perfect deep ball from Sanders that would’ve been a touchdown.


A great day that was so close to being that much better. Oh yeah, and Hunter made three tackles and defended two passes, including an insane interception to halt TCU in the red zone. Like Deion said in his halftime interview, “He is HIM.”


Smooth Colorado Offense


Sanders and Hunter weren’t the only ones that had a great day. Running Back Dylan Edwards decision to come to Colorado to play for Prime appeared to be a good one as he rushed the ball six times for 24 yards and a touchdown, then caught all five of his targets for 135 yards and three receiving touchdowns. TCU couldn’t stop Edwards as he trotted to a four-touchdown day.


Colorado ended the day with four players over 100 receiving yards. Edwards with 135, Hunter with 119, and then wide receiver Xavier Weaver and Jimmy Horn Jr got in on the action too as Weaver hauled in six passes for 118 yards and Horn Jr caught 11 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. What a day for the Buffaloes offense. The defense showed signs of being suspect at times but kept its bend don’t break mentality, especially when they got the fourth down stop to seal the game.


Next week the Buffaloes get to go home to Boulder as Matt Rhule and Nebraska come to town, and Prime is licking his chops to get off to a 2-0 start as the head coach at Colorado.
