Colorado football: A midseason review of the Buffaloes under Deion Sanders

The Colorado Buffaloes are halfway through their 2023 season under their new head coach Deion Sanders, the Hall of Fame cornerback and former NFL star. The Buffaloes have a 4-2 overall record and a 1-2 Pac-12 record, ranking eighth in the conference standings. They have shown some flashes of brilliance, but also some signs of inconsistency and inexperience. Here is a midseason review of the Buffaloes’ performance so far:

The Good

The Bad

The Outlook

The Buffaloes still have six games left in their regular season schedule, including four against ranked opponents (No. 18 UCLA, No. 15 Oregon State, No. 19 Washington State and No. 16 Utah). They will need to win at least three of them to become bowl-eligible and salvage their season.

The Buffaloes have shown some potential under Deion Sanders, but they also have a lot of room for improvement. They will need to find a balance between their passing and rushing offense, improve their pass defense, and limit their penalties and mistakes. They will also need to get healthy and regain their confidence after their recent losses.

The Buffaloes have a tough road ahead of them, but they also have a chance to prove themselves and make some noise in the Pac-12. They will need to play with passion, pride, and poise, and follow the lead of their charismatic and energetic head coach.
