As a high-profile athlete, Deion Sanders had high hopes for the Colorado football team to perform well in the Pac-12 this season. However, after losing their seventh game, this has proven to be a major disappointment. The loss was particularly devastating as it guaranteed a losing record and no postseason bowl game.
Despite the setback, Sanders expressed his disappointment in the team’s performance, acknowledging that they have fallen short of their potential. The situation is especially tough for him given that his son, who is the starting quarterback, has been sacked more times than any other player in the country and sustained a wrist injury during the game.
The team began the season on a promising note with three wins but have only won one out of seven games since then. With only one game left to play before wrapping up their season against No. 22 Utah next week, it’s clear that things are not looking up for Colorado football.
