If we have learned anything about Colorado Buffaloes this season, they don’t forget it. Anything.

Snubs, hate, trash talk, vague references to the transfer portal… Deion Sanders’ team has obtained all kinds of bulletin board material.

The Buffaloes are 3-0 after Saturday’s double-overtime win over the Colorado State Rams. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, CU is just the fourth team, and the first since 2008, to start a season 3-0 following a season in which it lost 11 or more games.

After Colorado’s upset win over TCU to start the season, Sanders offered what could have been an ominous warning to anyone who questioned him or his team about, well, anything.

“I have receipts. I know who they are.”

At this point, that might be Colorado’s mantra. Here are the revenues the Buffs have shown so far this season:

Week 1: A summer of questions

Who started it?: The media, in general.

A lot was written and said about Sanders’ offseason overhaul of the Buffaloes’ roster. CU began the season with 86 new players, 10 of whom had followed Sanders from Jackson State. Among them were Shedeur and Shilo Sanders, two of Deion’s sons and a former five-star recruit. travis hunter.

There were questions about the level of competition those players faced, especially those who came from Jackson State, an FCS program. When Shedeur Sanders He threw for a school-record 510 yards in a 45-42 victory, Deion Sanders’ postgame comments were filled with sarcasm.

“Really? Shedeur Sanders? From an HBCU? The one who played at Jackson last year? The one you asked me, ‘Why would I give him the starting job?'”

ESPN NFL reporter Ed Werder also noticed a stray dog.

Werder was on “The Dan Patrick Show” Monday after the game and said he wasn’t sure what Sanders was referring to, but thought it might be when he called him a “celebrity coach” in a tweet in March.

Week 2: Transfer Tribulation

Who started it?: Nebraska Corn Shellers coach Matt Rhule.

As noted, Colorado’s roster was virtually unrecognizable from the one that played in the 2022 season. According to ESPN Stats & Info research, Colorado had the most incoming players on an FBS roster since the start of the transfer portal in 2018.

In the offseason, Rhule was asked about his approach to the spring transfer period.

“I hear other schools say they can’t wait for … the transfer portal, I can’t wait to coach my guys,” Rhule said in April.

At the game, Shedeur Sanders voiced the Michael Jordan meme “I took it personally.”

“Coach said a lot of things about my dad, about the program.” said sanders, who had 393 passing yards and three touchdowns in the game. “I don’t respect that because you’re hating another man. All respect for them and their program is gone.

“The level of respect is not there because he disrespected us first.”

Nebraska could have compounded the problem during pregame warmups by stepping on Colorado’s midfield logo.

“We went out to warm up and the other team’s head coach was trying to stand in the middle of the Buff,” Sanders said. “It’s okay if a couple of players do it, that’s fine. Just enjoy the scenery, but when you have a whole team trying to disrespect him, I don’t go for that at all.”

Sanders added another push-up after the game.

Week 3: Sunglasses Door

Who started it?: Jay Norvell, coach of the Colorado State Rams

The above could be the tagline for an action movie sequel or just a dot on the map of a strange week of comings and goings before the Rocky Mountain Showdown.

It all started when Norvell criticized Deion Sanders for wearing sunglasses almost everywhere.

“When I talk to older people, I take off my hat and sunglasses.” norvell said during their coaches’ show. “That’s what my mom taught me.”

Sanders rebutted: “It was going to be a good game and they did it personally. It was going to be a big task, a Colorado battle, but they did it and they did it.” [personal]”.

Shedeur Sanders also weighed in.

Deion Sanders, who has his own line of sunglasses under the brand Blenders, started handing out glasses to almost everyone. During a team meeting, Sanders gave each member of his team a pair of sunglasses.

The game was not a sacred punishment because of the comment from Norvell’s coach that was heard around the world. It was a thrilling moment that saw Colorado need a 98-yard scoring drive to send the game into overtime, with the Buffaloes winning 43-35 in a second extension. When the game ended, Coach Prime and Norvell shook hands and had a brief interaction. Sanders, however, knew the severity of the rivalry, especially after such a hectic week.

“I said we can’t let this guy win,” Sanders said. After the match. “There’s no way we’re going to let this guy win. This press conference will be unbearable if we let this guy win.”

The Buffaloes will have their biggest test to date on Saturday when they visit No. 11. Oregon ducks. Deion & Co. surely won’t remember what Oregon coach Dan Lanning said in late July when asked if Colorado would leave the Pac-12 for the Big 12.
