“I wish 4 wins was the standard” – Robert Griffin III gets FLAMED on social media for hailing Deion Sanders’ performance despite Colorado having an ordinary 4-8 season

While there's surely an increase in number of wins than last season for Colorado, many are considering Deion Sanders has under-delivered.

The English proverb ‘Morning shows the day’ did not work for Deion Sanders, who, despite providing a great start to the Colorado Buffaloes this season, failed to seal the top spot for the team. The team ended up with a pretty ordinary record of 4-8 in this year’s college football. Their latest defeat came against the Utah Utes (23-17). This marked their sixth consecutive loss in the season.

Amid the abysmal season, Coach Prime got some people to back him. One of them was Robert Griffin III, who hailed him for ‘improving’ the team’s performance this season. Using his Twitter (now X) account, the former QB wrote that Coach Prime lifted the team from disaster to hope by winning four matches.

Coach Prime lifted @CUBuffsFootball from 1 win last year to 4 in year 1. From no hope to hope for a bright future. Whether you love him or love to hate him, you watched @DeionSanders team at levels never seen before for a team coming off a 1 win season. Next year will be fun.

However, netizens did not agree with what Griffin wrote. They instead trolled him for supporting Deion Sanders despite failing in the midway of the season.

The last encounter of the Colorado Buffaloes was a low-scoring one. In the absence of Shedeur Sanders, Coach Prime utilized Ryan Staub, who had an ordinary game. The QB covered 195 yards with one touchdown, completing 17 of his 24 passes. The hand injury of Shedeur Sanders that compelled him to leave the pitch against the Washington State cost them highly against the Utes.

Robert Griffin III epically trolled by netizens for supporting Deion Sanders

The netizens trolled Robert Griffin III brutally for rallying behind Deion Sanders. And they had a point. Sanders had every opportunity to take his team to the PAC-12 championship after a brilliant start to their campaign.

However, he failed to carry the momentum. The team started losing games after their third game and only managed to win one in their last nine games.

The Colorado Buffaloes had an embarrassing last season. They won only one in their 12 games. The team had been laggards for the last three seasons. This is their highest-winning season in the recent past. Considering all these, it can be said that Sanders had done a good job.

However, that does not sum up the whole story. After three wins in a row at the start, it was expected that Sanders would take the team to new heights. However, that failed. Losing six games in a row does not add any brownie points to anyone’s managerial tally.
