Teams are going to learn to stop talking about Colorado.
Colorado State coach Jay Norvell is currently going viral by adding fuel to the fire for Saturday’s rivalry game against Colorado. During a recent appearance on his coach’s show, Norvell took a shot at Buffaloes coach Deion Sanders, who frequently wears a hat and sunglasses to press conferences.
“I don’t care if they hear it in Boulder: I told them, I took my hat off and I took my glasses off and I said, ‘When I talk to grownups, I take my hat and my glasses off,'” Norvell said. “That’s what my mother taught me.”
What Colorado has in store for them is to be continued.
After Colorado finishes with them, they have a date with the Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium. The Buffaloes already have bulletin board material from their head coach.
A video surfaced of Oregon Ducks head football coach Dan Lanning speaking on Colorado leaving the Pac-12 for the Big 12 earlier this year.
“Not a big reaction,” Lanning told reporters Monday. “I’m trying to remember what they won to affect this conference. I don’t remember…Do you remember them winning anything?”
His comments may be harsh but he is not exactly wrong as the program joined the conference from the Big 12 ahead of the 2011 season and has gone 48-94 since then. The program has been a nonfactor with only two winning seasons over that span, and one of those came in the shortened 2020 campaign, when it was 4-2 in six games.
Things are much different now that head coach Deion Sanders is in charge. After winning just one game last year, the team is already 2-0.
For now, Colorado will focus on who is in front of them. Their matchup with Colorado State will be the first matchup between the heated in-state rivals since 2019. The Buffaloes are on a five-game winning streak against Colorado State and are heavily favored to add to that total this year.
