“He builds legacies. He doesn’t inherit them,” proudly stated Brett Yormark, the commissioner of Big 12, when asked about Deion Sanders. Sanders is the head coach in CU Buffs franchise history to redefine it with his suave. On-field, he might have a disappointing 4-8 record. But off-field, hardly any coach garnered this magnitude of attention and appreciation from fans, all in just two years.

However, keeping in mind the rampage of hirings and firings in the football landscape, several reports and analysts opined that Prime might give thought to shifting to another university. It seemed highly unlikely, as he has just started creating a prodigious team, just like he dreamed of since he switched to Buffs in 2022. Hence, when Coach Prime confirmed his status with CU, it came as a soothing solace to fans. “I’m happy where I am. I’m not going anywhere,” stated Sanders on ‘Undisputed’. “I don’t inherit a legacy, I build it,” boasted Prime, reiterating the Big 12 commissioner’s words. The words were music to the Buffs’ community’s ears, especially when Sanders reported ‘a couple of teams’ reaching out to him for the head coaching job.

“I love this fan base,” further added Sanders, reflecting his fervent desire to ‘fix it’. CU Buffs fans were Deion Sanders and Co.’s support system all through the season. Buffs sold out most of their games and their tickets averaged the highest as compared to any other teams.

Therefore, Coach Prime has made it their primary goal to win the games and fans’ hearts, all of it in the upcoming season. Coach Prime has created a thriving environment where all the Buffs players, seniors, and recruits alike, are training to conquer the CFP, as is seen from Well Off Media’s videos. But looking at Deion Sanders’ response to the recently released 2024 game schedule can be a concerning thing for CU.
