All that glitters is not gold– this is precisely what Colorado’s fate looked like following their match-up against the Washington State Cougars. Their last and only chance to win a playoff spot is washed away with their dismal 56-14 defeat. Deion Sanders failed to live up to his exemplary promises. Shedeur Sanders, the Buffaloes’ quarterback, left the game injured, but he had previously set a school record for the most passing yards in a single season. Despite individual achievements, criticism has emerged for Coach Deion Sanders regarding coaching decisions and situational awareness, particularly during close games.

One of the most vocal critiques of Deion Sanders, Sports journalist Jason Lee Whitlock, has utilized his platform X presence to challenge the narrative surrounding what many dubbed the “Miracle in Boulder.” According to Whitlock, he believes that the story has been constructed with manipulated facts to generate ratings and clicks and the final knell has been rung by Colorado’s play-off ineligibility.

A lot was said, but much remained undone. When Deion Sanders was brought on board as the Colorado Buffaloes’ new head coach, he had sought to revamp and rewrite their football history. He did garner a lot of attention, but he also brought with him a string of embarrassing defeats that were only magnified by the media across the nation’s eye. A lot of what he claimed earlier fell in stark contrast to the concluding scoreline. In his recent post on platform X, he called out Coach Prime’s bluff. “Deion and Shedeur tapped out. It is what it is,” he posted referring to how Colorado faired on Saturday. 

He additionally shared another video that captured the head coach, fiery and ambitious where he speaks to the press about being with Colorado for nine seasons and that he is getting “really comfortable” in his shoes in Boulder. However, the performance that he orchestrated after his million-dollar contract, only raises 100 million questions about his credibility. When asked about his perspective on the loss, the coach sure had something interesting to support his clause. Or so he wishes.

Sanders struggles with sickness 

Colorado’s loss to Washington State eliminates their chances of reaching a postseason bowl game. After a strong start, the Buffaloes have lost seven of their last eight games. The dwindling performance has also led to a decrease in attendance, with Friday’s game being the first in an unsold-out stadium this season. Deion Sanders, battling illness, described Friday’s game as the toughest stretch of his life. He mentioned a “throbbing” head and feeling “foggy.” Despite illness affecting the Colorado locker room, he emphasized it wasn’t the reason for the team’s performance.
