If you noticed the letters ‘L’ and ‘D’ on the uniforms of certain Colorado players on Saturday, a Buffaloes reporter has shed some light on why they’re being worn.
The team won its first game of the season on Saturday, opening with a 45-42 win over TCU that shocked just about everyone. Deion Sanders should have converted many of the naysayers after putting on a show in Fort Worth on the day as his team managed a major upset against the TCU Horned Frogs.
The likes of Shedeur Sanders, Travis Hunter, Dylan Edwards, and Sy’Veon Wilkerson all shone. But Shedeur and Travis were the standout players on the day, with the former passing for a whopping 510 yards and the latter starring on both sides of the ball.
As for the letters on their jerseys, Curtis Snyder, a writer for the team, has revealed that Deion doesn’t use the word “captain” and instead refers to his players as “leaders” or “dawgs,” hence the ‘L’ and the ‘D’.
Shedeur and Shane Cokes wear the ‘L’ on their jerseys while Hunter and Jace Feely are considered to be “dawgs” and wear the ‘D’.
Coach Prime has built a reputation for doing things differently. He’s been that way ever since he burst out into the spotlight and continues to do so to the detriment of opposing teams.
The Buffaloes are now set to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers in their first home game of the season next Saturday after going up 1-0 to kick things off.
