Deion Sanders, Colorado Predicted to Struggle in 2024 by Coaches: It Will 'Get Dark'

The initial optimism around Deion Sanders and Colorado quickly faded away as the team lost eight of its final nine games this season with some expecting things to get worse before they get better.

Per The Athletic's David Ubben, Bruce Feldman and Justin Williams, six different coaches and coordinators within the Pac-12 believe the Buffaloes won't be as successful in 2024 as they were this year.

"It's gonna get dark for Colorado," one coach said.

When Sanders took the Colorado job in December 2022 after spending three years at Jackson State, he embarked on an unprecedented remaking of the roster.
