The Colorado Buffaloes have undergone tremendous changes since Deion Sanders was hired as head coach. The roster turnover was badly needed after a 1-11 season a year ago, and the transfer portal exploded with former Buffs players.
More players arrived after the spring game, and Coach Prime worked tirelessly to bring in talent.
