Since Deion Sanders took over, the college football world has had its eyes on the Colorado Buffaloes football program.
Over the weekend, 47,000 fans showed up to Folsom Field in the snow to watch the spring game. Once that game was over, a bunch of players that were on that field would be headed out to other programs as a mass exodus would begin.
As of Tuesday, there have been 23 Colorado football players to have entered the transfer portal since Saturday’s spring game concluded, bringing the Buffs down to just 16 returning scholarship players.
This wasn’t shocking to Sanders as he famously told players at his first team meeting at Colorado that he would be bringing his own luggage with him and that many of them could simply transfer.
Not a lot of people are pleased with how things are going down and some are speaking out against Sanders, including one parent of a player that was on the team.
Colorado WR Grant Page entered the transfer portal, not because he wanted to, but because he was pushed to do so.
Via the Denver Post:
“I couldn’t have stayed (at CU),” Page, the former Buffs and Fairview wide receiver told me Monday. “I really wanted to. They said it was just best for me to leave.”
“It was my position coach,” Page replied.
John Tyson, father of WR Jordyn Tyson:
“My thoughts on Deion wouldn’t be good, so I’m not going to say anything,” the elder Tyson, father of former freshman Buffs wideout Jordyn Tyson, another Monday portal entry, told me by phone.
“It’s a bad situation for us as a family, I will say that. And it’s unfortunate, but it’s the nature of the system.”
Some Buffs fans argue that Coach Prime’s roster purge is cause for concern while others are confident that this is all part of the rebuilding process.
It remains to be seen when the team actually hits the field when the games start to count.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
