Following the 34-31 defeat, Coach Prime brought his views in the post-game conference and expressed his regret in not being able to give the Colorado fanbase the play they wanted. However, the 56-year-old shed some light on his decision-making approach after being asked about their new co-offensive coordinator. With Deion Sanders basing his decisions not just on emotions but on facts, knowledge, and wisdom, perhaps he has a plan that most people are overlooking. 

Coach Prime’s decision to stick with Pat Shurmur has raised divided responses from fans. When he was asked if the extra week of training on their co-offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur was worth it, the head coach said it tremendously helped the team. He said, “I make decisions not based on emotions. I make decisions based on facts… on knowledge and understanding and tremendous wisdom.”
