Colorado’s spring game this weekend promises to be a groundbreaking event. For the first time in Buffaloes history, the game is completely sold out, and ESPN will be televising the scrimmage. This will also mark the first time that the network’s flagship channel will cover a spring game in the country.
The excitement around the game has only increased as rumors swirl of possible celebrity appearances on Saturday. However, Colorado head coach Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders refused to confirm or deny these rumors during a press conference earlier this week.
The Buffaloes are approaching the game with high spirits as they are keen to use it as a recruiting springboard. Sanders and his coaching staff have focused on roster rebuilding, continuing the process of adding new faces to their team.
As BSN Denver reports, when Sanders spoke to the press, he made it clear that they are trying to add “go-getters” and “family resurrection guys” from the transfer portal. The NCAA’s loosening of transfer rules has led to a mass migration every year, and Sanders has said that the portal door swings both ways.
Sanders and his staff are also hoping to give Buffs fans a taste of what’s to come during the spring game. As he further explained, “we just want to go out there and give them a glimpse of what the possibility is,” emphasizing, however, that “what you see is not what you’re gonna see.”
The Buffaloes have been working extremely hard this spring, and Sanders is confident that fans will see a true representation of Colorado football when they play their first game of the season against TCU. Sanders promised fans that they would be happy with the product that they would see on the field come September.
