Colorado’s close win over Arizona State marked their inaugural conference victory of the season, ending an arduous eight-game PAC-12 losing streak. Although boasting one of the nation’s most talented offensive rosters, the Buffaloes faced challenges in consistently progressing downfield throughout the evening, against an Arizona State squad that had only secured one win in the current season. Colorado’s Coach Prime was not pleased.

He furnished his team’s performance with the choicest of words during the post-game interviews, making it known that he is absolutely “sick of” the team’s “mediocrity.” In a recent post on platform X, Prime Time presented his audience with the secret to overcoming mediocrity and achieving greater heights.

Deion Sanders has an astounding ability to maintain a positive outlook even when faced with adversity, which has not only motivated his players but also inspired the entire audience, emphasizing that it is Colorado’s moment to shine. In a recent post on platform X, the two-sport legend singled out the vices that hold a person back from becoming the best version of oneself, There’s no time for insecurity socially, physically, financially or Relationally.”

Insecurity, being unsure about one’s capabilities limits one from pushing oneself out of one’s comfort zone. Insurity fuels mediocrity, and to achieve greatness one must, “be Confident in your abilities, sure, realistic & capable.” It stands to reason that Coach Prime is motivating his players to do better and seize the tournament. He has been diligently working on ensuring the “holes” in the Buffs’ offense and defense are covered for the best play possible.

However, Prime Time was not even close to being this composed following Colorado’s win over Arizona late last Saturday, and with reason. 

Sanders is “sick” of Colorado’s “mediocrity”

The Buffs managed to survive the game, securing a 27-24 victory over the Sun Devils. However, this was not the manner in which he desired to win. It came despite another slow start, further issues with blocking, and a 94-yard touchdown drive by Arizona State to tie the game in the final minute.

Additionally, the Buffs incurred eight penalties, allowed five sacks, and struggled to kick the ball through the end zone on kickoffs, much to the annoyance of their coach. “I don’t know how every else’s kickers kick the ball out of the end zone but ours,” he said. It was not without their star quarterback, Shedeur Sanders, that the team was able to tie the game 14-14.

“I’m sick of these consistent holes that we’re displaying and the penalties and things that we’re doing. We’re so much better,” said Prime who looked disheartened not because of his team’s failure to win, but because of his team’s inability to rise above the ordinary. Hopefully, both Prime Time and his players will soon be able to “Seize the Moment” and outshine the rest.
