My biggest concern

From the TCU game on - I and many others saw physical weakness that we felt could be exploited. As absolutely great a hire as Coach Sanders is - the truly great physical specimens at line and linebacker and running back we’re not simply going to transfer through the portal - they were already VERY successful where they were.

As coach as said - he doesn’t have all the horses he needs.

My hope is- that Coach can really attract these kids - JC transfers and ungodly talented Akabamatyoe freshmen - next year - so that he can get some real strength and depth.

My fear - that right now we are in fact the team that CSU truly outplayed. That we are a team that really won’t have an answer to physical football. And that as a result - the rest of the season becomes a dismal experience. And that Coach Sander’s unbelievable bubble bursts - and his vibe goes south. And that in the end - the national amazement with CUs change in stature becomes snickering,

And that in the end the great linemen and linebackers and running backs just don’t come.

There’s a ton in me that wishes Coach Sanders were less show. I know I’m not explaining it well - but his style of outsized self promotion feels risky - feels like it could blow up - with CU almost immediately losing the almost immediate provenance he brought with him.
