1. Deion Sanders impresses with his review.

Deion Sanders He is a polarizing figure. Regardless of whether you love him or hate him, there is no denying that this man is a perennial winner in everything he does. He speaks what he speaks because he knows he can follow the path. Whether it was showing up at the NFL Combine and running the 40 so fast that he proceeded to pick up his bags and walk out of the building without doing anything else, or more recently, overhauling arguably the worst roster in the Power Five conference in a single offseason to become a legitimate championship threat, the man says what he believes and does what he says.

I learned from the former Wisconsin head coach. Barry Alvarez It’s been a long time since your mouth writes a check, your butt better be able to cash it, and Coach Prime is, well, a prime example of how to do just that.

I mention all this to make it clear that Prime is in a league of its own. He’s one of a kind, and the notion that any other coach could (not only get away with overhauling his roster like he did in Colorado, but also succeed in doing so) is not accurate. This won’t be a continued trend in college football. Athletic Directors and Search Firms Seeing the Soon Return of the Athletic Director Rick GeorgeTrump’s investment in a coach with Sanders’ personality is not replicable. Yes, there are ways to turn a program around quickly thanks to the transfer portal, but even then certain pieces must already be in place.

I hear a lot of talk about Deion Sanders’ method of turning a program around overnight and how it could become the new normal in college football, but I can assure you that won’t be the case. There was one man capable of doing what Sanders has done and that is Prime himself. Any other school that tries to replicate or attempt this method will likely set their program back. But in a win-now world I wouldn’t be surprised to see another school try and fail.



2. Nebraska needs to be patient with Matt Rhule.

“This is what you get when you hire me. It won’t be a quick fix, it won’t be overnight.” Matt Rhule he said in his press conference after an 0-2 start. Having spent time with the Nebraska staff, I know firsthand that Husker fans were probably embarrassed and even insulted by those comments.

Nebraska, with one of the most passionate fan bases in college football, has continued a record-breaking streak of ticket sales despite the program’s struggles for the better part of a decade. And Nebraska fans feel like they deserve more.

But the reality of the situation is that the glory days of Nebraska football occurred before today’s top recruits were alive and without a wealth of elite talent in their backyard, this is a total rebuild and it will take time.

I’m not sure the Huskers’ new head coach knew what he was getting into when he became the most scrutinized figure in the state and was heralded by some as an instant solution to everything that’s gone wrong at Nebraska in recent years. . But I really think he’s the right man for the job.

For Nebraska to come close to replicating its past success of the Tom Osborne years, a collaboration between fans, coaches and players will be necessary. Nebraska is unique in that the influence of the fans has a real effect on the product that is put on the field. Nebraska tried to win with a coach who had led an NFL team to the Super Bowl and failed. He tried to win with a coach who had won in less fertile recruiting ground and failed. He tried to win with a legendary former player who had success as a coach elsewhere and failed. Now he’s trying to win with a coach who has proven to take teams from the depths of college football and turn them into winners again.

Rhule can and will win, if given time. But this is a group effort that extends far beyond the coaches’ offices, and patience and support are the key to success if Nebraska wants to compete for championships again.



3. Midwest freshmen make early impact.

One of the catalysts for Colorado’s new team is the play of Edwards, a true freshman. In two games, the former four-star scored four touchdowns, rushed for 79 yards and gained another 143 through the air.

The stats are great, but his impact has been greater and few would call Edwards a star in the making. Although he received a high rating upon coming out, he has already proven to be better than I thought and will likely surpass his high rating.

Taylor showed special traits coming out of high school, leading me to name him the Big Ten’s biggest recruiting steal in the class of 2023. After Minnesota’s slow offensive start in Week 1 against Nebraska, the staff knew that It was time to unleash some young playmakers who may not have been ready but were needed for the team to take the next step.

A Game 2 match against Eastern Michigan was the perfect time to experiment and the results couldn’t have been better. Taylor took on a lead role in the Gophers’ offense, rushing for 193 yards with one touchdown along with two receptions for 13 yards, a performance that earned him Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors.

While I probably wasn’t excited enough about Edwards, my faith in Taylor looks good now.

We knew Thieneman was good and would likely be the classic overachiever who would eventually surpass his ranking. However, I’m not sure we could have predicted his impact would be so big and so fast.

The former three-star is off to a fast start and has established himself as an early standout on Purdue’s defense with 17 tackles and two interceptions in two games. Like Taylor, Thieneman has already been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week.

Moore may not have won the starting job out of the gate for UCLA, but former Detroit five-star Martin Luther King got the nod in Week 2, and things couldn’t have gone better. Following a Week 1 win during which he split time at quarterback and went 7-of-12 for 143 yards and two touchdowns with one interception, Moore took the reins against San Diego State in Game 2.

During his first start, Moore was outstanding, throwing for 290 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. This is probably just the beginning for a quarterback who has always been the best player.
