Buffs

So, it cracks me up to think that if Jackson State would have been in the FCS playoffs (they don’t compete in the playoffs), they wouldn’t have made it past the second round, yet Coach Sanders is thinking that by taking half of that team to Colorado they are going to win in the Pac-12…..He is going to be lucky to get 5 years in Colorado. I just don’t see it.


Punters are people too!!

It's questionable as to whether the Jackson State transfers (apart from Travis Hunter) will be good enough to play in the Pac-12, but he has also signed the #13 high school WR, #8 high school RB, and #1 JC OT according to ESPN's rankings. Most of the rankings I've seen put their overall recruiting class around 40th overall and in the middle of the Pac 12. He'll have some talent there, so I don't think it's a given by any means that he'll fail - but it won't be an instant rebuild either and I wonder how much patience he and the boosters will have when he's not contending for championships in Year 1 like he did at JSU.

SWAC is not equal to PAC12, he has brought in some talent at CU, but at JSU he had talent over and above the rest of the SWAC, plus JSU has history of being one of the better SWAC teams and having a high relative attendance. He was able to bring in financial support to JSU also. The advantages he had in the SWAC were huge.

CU in the PAC12 is a whole different dynamic. He may be able to bring in support & talent to CU, but he wont be head and shoulders above the rest of the conference like he was at JSU. Now he is going to have to have some real coaching to even compete, I know he has brought in coaches too, so it will be interesting, personally I think he will struggle.
