According to a new report from Athlon Sports, multiple Colorado Buffaloes football players quit the team over a Lil Wayne concert. And yes, you read that correctly.

The report states that Coach Prime made it mandatory for Colorado football players to attend the concert, to support Shedeur Sanders and his rapping career.

It was the "last straw" for some players.

"The Wayne concert was the final straw for a few players who hit the transfer portal," a source told Athlon Sports. "When Coach Prime told us we all had to be there to support Shedeur as a rapper, they were not happy at all. To be honest, it was nothing but a huge distraction and Daddy Ball was being played."

Colorado is hoping that all of the roster turnover ends up being a good thing for the 2024 season and beyond.

Right now, though, there's plenty to question over the program.

3 more wins and they'd make a bowl.  So what?

I'll never understand people hating on someone's success because they did it too _______.  Too loudly?  Too brash?  Too noisy? 

How much of a win improvement would have made it "okay"?  5?  7?  This is stupid. 
I don’t understand not understanding this.  Bragging has long been considered an undesirable trait.  It didn’t start with Deion. It won’t end with him. What don’t you understand?

I don't personally much mind bragging by some public person.  It used to annoy me some, but then I realized either they put up, or largely shut up, or get ignored later.

Most coaches use "coach speak" obviously, which is rather boring.  I think Deion is flashy because it sells with the young folks he's trying to recruit.  At this point, I personally pay him no more mind than whoever is the coach at Eastern Michigan.

He had his 15 minutes, let him be.
