It makes sense for Colorado, they have been terrible for years and any excitement and attention has to help. I just don't know that Deion is ready to make the jump to FBS.

TDA said a couple of days ago that he was going and that he wanted Freddie Roach. So..DL coach position will be open it looks like. That is only speculative...but Smith knows things.

I think Deion is a potentially great coach, only time will tell.

He took over a JSU program that had won a grand total of 12 games over the previous three seasons, went 4-3 in his first (COVID) season, and has a record of 23-2 since, winning back-to-back conference titles.

Impressive turn-around. FBS is a different animal, but it appears that Deion has the tools and the confidence to be successful.

Here we go - he's gonna get players...

He will ... but the challenge is ... its STILL in Colorado. He will get some big names but that will taper off over the next few years once players see what Bolder has to offer ... or a lack thereof.

But I do believe he will be successful enough to get him a better gig within 3 years. I just wished he would have stayed at JSU for one more year. He was able to bring a great sense of relevancy to both JSU and the SWAC during his time there. A lot of the SWAC teams ended up having sellout games against JSU just because people wanted to come and see CDS and JSU. I know both A&M and Alabama State did.

Oh well, it will be interesting to see how he does a CU.

I honestly think Coach Prime will do an outstanding job of initially RECRUITING some OUTSTANDING (4 & 5 Star) players. Will he have a staff who can DEVELOP these players? We will see.

I honestly think he will do an outstanding job at Colorado. He may bring in players from the entire country, but especially Texas, California, and Florida. The Transfer Portal could also help him in his first year in laying a foundation for the future. I'm sure there are many players who would love to play for him. I'm also sure Colorado has the $$$,$$$,$$$ to bring in some outstanding athletes.

Now, will he continue to do commercials with Coach Saban?

Has Coach Saban taught him The PROCESS?

Does he have the organizational skills to be totally effective in every phase of a big time program. What he's done at JSU has been outstanding. Can he do the same thing at Colorado. I think he can.

How much is Colorado paying him? How many years in the contract?

CU has been a coaches' graveyard for years. It'll certainly be interesting to see how the Neon One fares in FBS football.
It definitely has been, but his road will get a lot easier when Texas and Oklahoma leave in a few years.
