Colorado DB Travis Hunter might have an inflated view of himself on a football field.
How will he do in the PAC-12 after dominating the FCS level? Fans will get their first look Saturday against TCU. If it goes as well as Hunter thinks, the Buffaloes should roll.
Why do we say that? Well, Colorado apparently has the two best players in America…..according to Travis Hunter.
Travis Hunter believes he’s the Heisman favorite.
“There’s only one choice and that’s me. Both sides of the ball. I’m going for it all. Gots to. Sophomore year. Like I said on Instagram, Heisman loading. That’s my goal. That’s what I’m reaching. Sometimes you got to put your goals out there and let everyone know what you’re reaching,” Travis Hunter told people when explaining why a guy who hasn’t played one snap of major college football is the Heisman favorite in his mind.
This Colorado situation is going to be fascinating to watch unfold.
The hype around the Colorado Buffaloes is truly off the charts. It’s truly insane how much attention Deion Sanders and his program are receiving.
Oddsmakers expect the Buffaloes to be terrible, the team won one game in 2022 and there’s no reason to believe Sanders will turn everything around in year one.
However, people are talking about the team in Boulder like they’re going to shock the world.
Now, Travis Hunter believes he’s the favorite for the Heisman, and not just the favorite. He’s two spots ahead of the man who won the Heisman last year.
I’m all for having confidence in yourself. Confidence is great. It helps you push that extra mile, but there’s a difference between confidence and delusion.
Going from JSU to the Heisman winner in one season as a CB seems like a bit much.
Will Colorado be competitive? That remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt the Buffaloes are going to be insanely entertaining. That’s already the case and the first game of the season hasn’t even been played yet.
