Deion Sanders and Colorado are at it again

podcast May 3, 2023

Deion Sanders and Colorado have struck gold in the transfer portal all offseason, but on Tuesday they may have landed one of their biggest gets of the year. The Buffs were able to land former five-star Sav’ell Smalls, an EDGE out of Washington. The former top-30 recruit didn’t make the impact he was hoping at Washington, but will have a prime opportunity at Colorado to make a name for himself. I break down what he brings to the table, and how he could help the defense in multiple ways.

8:35 Deion Sanders was recently called ruthless for his transfer portal methods, but I break down why that is an unfair way to look at the first-year Colorado coach. Sanders inherited one of the worst rosters college football has ever seen, but apparently was expected to save everyone’s roster spots and feelings. I dissect why people are still upset about his actions when it comes to making players leave, and explain how he is just doing everyone a favor.

14:45 Lastly I dive into former Colorado head coach Mel Tucker being put on the hot seat over in East Lansing. After leaving Colorado high and dry after promising he wouldn’t, Tucker had one good season at Michigan State in three years. Now, a few of his top players are planning to leave the program and Spartan fans are becoming more and more upset. The belief is that the former Colorado head coach is one more bad season away from being fired despite being one of the highest paid coaches in college football.
