Agree, but I'm not sure how much I care for the method to accomplish it.

Are you talking about taking away scholarships from kids who don't perform well? It happens with academic scholarships all of the time. If a kid gets a 1.0 GPA, he loses his scholarship.

I think that they will lose several games, but he has done a good job of taking over a 1 win team team and making them at least an average to abover average team in a very short period of time.

they have 9 games left on their schedule. 6 of them look like comfortable losses. i think once they lose the first game, the cracks will begin to show and they will fall apart.


@ (13) Oregon

home against (5) USC

@ Arizona State

home against Stanford

@ (24) UCLA

home against (16) Oregon State

home against Arizona

@ (23) Washington State

@ (12) Utah


when they brought in deion, my thought was they would immediately improve to a 5-6 win team and stay there. an improvement over years past, but virtually no upward trajectory after that. i still feel that way.


i am expecting excuses when oregon blows their doors off next week if hunter is out.

I do think Shadeur and Shilo looked good. Surprised by his arm.

Dissapointing thought for anyone over the age of 35 that actually got to witness Deion and his all-time elite wheels. They are both kinda fast but no one caught Deion, especially a Dline or LB. Deion looked like the athletic 8th grader playing freeze tag with 1st graders, it was fair and he could just mess with them

Yes, and if the ballplayers don't perform in the classroom, they will be gone. No one with the least bit of integrity cuts a substantial percentage of the team, nor should the people they work for allow it.

You are very naive if you think that the majority of players at that level are taking real classes. Why should a player get another scholarship if he isn't doing the job? Most people in life don't get to keep their job if they suck at it.

I agree.  We’ll see in December if Deion was the Second Coming some are proclaiming him today.  I see his tenure at Colorado ending very ugly.

I don't think that they will finish with a great record, but 6-6 would be a big improvement from 1-11. He's just ahead of the curve in working the transfer portal and NIL. That will balance out within a couple of years. Any long term success will come down to his ability to recruit and build a quality coaching staff. My guess is that he leaves for a bigger program within a few years. Colorado was a national power 30 years ago, but the Big 8/12 is no longer a major conference with the changes coming.

I can see some stupid SEC school selling its soul to get him (Tennessee, Florida, Auburn).  By then his schtick will have grown stale.  His “style” requires” the blue bloods in a school’s alumni base to hold try and maintain a grin while Lil Wayne replaces their marching band during pregame.  If his gambling on the portal to assemble an all-star team stops working, they’re going to be highly disappointed.

And FSU thinks they have the stop and then the ref threw the latest flag call that I’ve ever seen. Looked to be the right call but Geesh it looked bad by the ref

FSU kept calling the same damn play but it worked in OT. I thought FSU was a bit off and play calls were odd.

Good win noneth
