Deion Sanders' Insane Clock Management Highlights Another Colorado Loss
If you're looking for something to do this morning, go back into the archives and read some of the things written about Deion Sanders after he won a few games at Colorado
since, predictably, it hasn't aged well. Skip Bayless stated that the man would lead the Dallas Cowboys to several Super Bowls and that
comparing him to Phil Jackson was an insult to lead Prime.
Michael Jordan! He won 11 NBA championships. Sanders was dubbed the "Jurassic Park" Nick Saban or Jim Harbaugh, or some sort of hybrid blending genes from both the Michigan Man and the Alabama great.
In the real world, the Buffaloes are currently 4-5 after falling to Oregon State at home Wednesday night.
A retooled offensive approach yielded little results, and Sanders' puzzling coaching choice soon before halfway cost Colorado seven points in a game they lost by the same amount.
With the ball at their own 5-yard line and down 7-3 with 49 seconds left, Colorado could have easily run the ball three times
or kneeled the ball three times — and either totally run the clock out or been able to run the clock out with an out-of-bounds putt or heave.
Instead, Sanders elected to throw on the first two plays. Each attempted an incompletion.
