Coach Deion Sanders hype train derailed in ugly 42-6 curb stomping – opposing coach talks smack

It was probably only a matter of time but Cinderella’s magical carriage turned back into a pumpkin as the clock struck midnight on the storybook season of coach Deion Sanders and his upstart Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday.

The biggest story in the college football world for the past three weeks was the miraculous job that the NFL Hall of Famer and former Dallas Cowboys superstar has done since arriving in Boulder with his son, star quarterback Shedeur Sanders and tripling the moribund team’s one-win total in his first three games heading into the matchup with the tenth-ranked Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium in Eugene.

After the opening kickoff, the Ducks marched straight down the field against Colorado’s overmatched defense and never looked back, piling up five unanswered touchdowns before the halftime gun sounded on the nationally televised curb stomping.

In a completely dominant performance over the first two quarters, Oregon outgained Sanders’ team by a stunning 378-21 total yards, held the ball for an astounding 21 minutes longer than the shellshocked visitors and were it not for a turnover, the score could have been even worse.

The Ducks picked up where they left off after Colorado’s first possession after the half quickly ended, making it a 42-0 game as the noise reached a deafening din with the sold-out crowd and millions of Americans cheering the humiliating beatdown of the mouthy Sanders and his smack-talking team.

After a Colorado turnover, Nix marched the Ducks to the CU five-yard line but a fourth down pass fell incomplete after which Oregon pretty much took the rest of the game off with the final score being 42-6, a brutal beating but not as bad as it could have been if Ducks coach Dan Lanning hadn’t called off the dogs.

The fired up Lanning was clearly looking to make a statement as was evident by a fiery pregame speech, and that he did.

“I hope all those people that have been watching every week watches this week,” Coach Lanning said when he was interviewed after his team’s impressive first half.

At the postgame press conference, a defiant Coach Prime reacted to his counterpart’s suggestion that he talks big to get “clicks” and vowed that there would be payback in the future and that he keeps receipts.

A more humble Sanders took to X, previously known as Twitter, to admit the obvious.

Football fans and other observers took to X where they posted their takes with some savoring Colorado and Sanders being brought crashing back down to earth.

Jason Whitlock of “Fearless” suggested that it could get ugly for Deion and his team as the season progresses.

“The Colorado locker room is about to get real over the next few weeks. You have a weak offensive line protecting the coach’s kid at quarterback. The coach and the QB have large, unchecked egos. The media has already started the process of singling out the offensive line.
No one questioning scheme or all-pass, showcase-Shedeur-for-Heisman-NFL approach,” he wrote on X.

“Media will ignore but the locker-room dynamics will be very interesting in Boulder. Don’t miss my show on Monday if you want to hear an honest discussion of “Coach Prime” and Colorado. It’s the only place for an honest discussion of the sports world. No groupie stuff,” added Whitlock, who in a recent column, likened the “idolatry” of Coach Deion to that of Barack Obama.

Whitlock apparently struck a nerve, later posting a screenshot to the platform that he had been blocked by Sanders.

Coach Prime and his Buffaloes won’t have much time to regroup before next Saturday’s home matchup with No. 5 USC Trojans with the college football powerhouse coming to Colorado as heavy favorites for a game that could get out of hand quickly.
