Deion Sanders apologized to his players after they lost their fourth straight game on Saturday.
“We just can’t get over the hump,” Sanders said after the Arizona Wildcats kicked a game-winning field goal in the final seconds to beat Colorado 34-31 in Boulder.
It was the last home game of the season for the Colorado Buffaloes.
Sanders apologized to the Colorado players who were playing in their final game on Folsom Field.
“I apologize … that we didn’t send them out right, in which we wanted to because they deserve it,” Sanders said.
He also apologized to Colorado fans, who took to social media to vent their frustration after the team’s final home game.
“They’ve been supporting the heck out of us and they’ve been showing up and showing out — another sellout crowd that ended in disappointment,” Sanders said. “We’re so close. It’s what I told the team. But yet so far. We just simply, truly don’t know how to win yet.”
The Buffaloes sold out every home game this season and won their first 3 games — an impressive feat for a team that went 1-11 last season.
Colorado must win its final 2 road games — against Washington State and Utah — to become bowl eligible.
