He brought players that wanted to play for him. He inherited a group that had little to no talent and he had no reason to keep the low performers. I see no reason to condemn him for his use of the portal to build his team around the three players that remained from last years Colorado team.

Why do they call it a horse collar tackle? I would think it would be really hard (impossible) to tackle a horse. Why not say dog collar tackle? I can see that.

Ah...not even close.  It's an entirely new team. 

From ESPN 3 days ago....

When the Buffaloes take the field in Fort Worth, Texas, against No. 17 TCU on Saturday (noon ET, Fox), the only resemblance to last year's team will be the uniforms. Only 10 scholarship players from the 2022 roster remain with the team. The team's 86 new players come from all over — from high school to junior college to the SEC — including nine who followed Sanders from Jackson State, led by Shedeur Sanders, Deion's son and CU's starting QB, and Travis Hunter, the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2022 class. According to ESPN Stats & Information data, it's the most incoming players to an FBS roster since the inception of the transfer portal in 2018.

As for the "don't let the door hit you in the ass" comments.  He literally said the day he took over that he was going to dump most of the players.  It's a whole new team.

Good point about the NIL. I forgot that in my comment. 

The student-athlete is going the way of dinosaurs in football.

I just thought Prime was way too publicly vocal in talking about how he was getting rid of guys from last year’s team.



I don’t think you’ve got the prime story correct. 
Did he say to the players, who were 1-11 last year, we are creating a winning environment and your place here is not guaranteed..,you’ll need to earn it? Yes.
Don’t let door hit you on the ass?
Not his style. 
Regardless, that was one helluva game from both teams.  
Go Buffs!

With NIL money and the transfer portal, college sports success is just a coach and a season away.  

My only issue with it...given all the money that is floating around in major college sports, the general population students shouldn't be paying anything in fees to support athletics.  It's insane we live in a country where kids borrowing money pay "student fees" of several hundred dollars per semester to support sports where the coaches all make millions...including now some of the assistant coaches.  Many students are taking on debt they can't afford to indirectly support athletics.  It's crazy.

I don't get the Jets fascination with him. Don't they remember how the last great Green Bay QB worked out for them? I guess that's why they are always referred to as "The Same Old Jets"
