Bears WR and Notre Dame alum Equanimeous St. Brown would root for Colorado to beat Irish because of Deion Sanders
How popular is Deion Sanders?#Bears WR Equanimeous St. Brown said he would root for Colorado to defeat his alma mater, Notre Dame, if they were to play each other.— Ari Meirov (@MySportsUpdate) September 14, 2023
"I want Prime to win everything based off just how many doubters there are."

Look, I get how popular Coach Prime is with the recruits, football players and fans. Hell, I'm a big fan of Deion since I was a kid when he signed his business card and gave it to me while hitting bombs for the Atlanta Braves and scoring touchdowns for the Atlanta Falcons. Deion is the man and he is proving it in Boulder by winning his first two games when Colorado only won a single game last season. But Equanimeous can fuck right off with saying he would root for Colorado over ND, his alma mater.
Where is the loyalty for your school? ESB has no ties to Coach Prime or Colorado. He's just a fanboy of Coach Prime. But I guess somewhere deep down ESB really doesn't like ND or coach Marcus Freeman. Why else would he root for Colorado over ND? Because of "doubters"...well coach Freeman has had plenty of doubters being a first time head coach at one of the most prestigious programs in the nation.
ESB is officially out of the Notre Dame family. He will now be referred to as Fredo. He has no allegiance. No loyalty. He is dead to us all.

Colorado has been one of the most surprising teams early in the 2023 college football season and hosts in-state rival Colorado State in Week 3. After going just 1-11 last season, the Buffaloes have already surpassed that win total with a pair of victories against TCU and Nebraska to open this year.
Oddsmakers in Vegas like them to keep up their impressive play against the Rams, as Colorado opens as a 20.5-point favorite according to FanDuel. The over/under for the contest is set at 57.5.
Buffaloes quarterback Shedeur Sanders had a record-breaking debut in Week 1 against the Horned Frogs to throw for a school record 510 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-42 win. It was much of the same story in Week 2 against the Cornhuskers.
Sanders, the son of first-year CU coach Deion Sanders, followed up his opening week performance to throw for another 393 yards and two touchdowns as Colorado won 36-14. Xavier Weaver finished as his top receiver with 10 catches for 170 yards and a touchdown.
If there’s one area of concern for the Buffaloes offense, it’s the run game. Colorado has failed to rush for more than 60 yards in either of its first two games despite the big numbers it’s put up through the air. Alton McCaskill could provide that spark once he returns from injury, but he’s missed the first two games of the season.
As for Colorado State, it is coming off of a 3-9 season in 2022 and don’t appear to have improved much based on a small sample to start off this year. The Rams opened with a 50-24 loss to Washington State and then had an early bye in Week 2.
CSU quarterback Clay Millen struggled in Week 1 to finish 15-of-24 passing for 110 yards and an interception. The Rams also struggled on the ground with just 37 yards rushing on 20 carries. The 24 points they scored is somewhat misleading, as their only three touchdowns of the game all came in garbage time during the fourth quarter.
Not many were sure what to expect from the Buffaloes after they brought in 71 new players this offseason. However, they’ve quickly turned into one of the best stories so far and stand a good chance to start out 3-0 as Colorado State is the weakest opponent they’ve faced thus far.
Kickoff for the contest is set for 8 p.m. MT in Boulder.
Last week Brian Kelly came out and said his LSU Football team would come out and basically beat the shit out of FSU on Sunday night. Now BK is backtracking, saying he would never say such a thing. Well the tape doesn't lie as Kelly was caught on his own radio show saying it...
A LITTLE PREGAME BULLETIN BOARD MATERIAL 📝— Warchant.com (@Warchant) September 3, 2023
LSU coach Brian Kelly on his radio show earlier this week: “We’re going to go beat the heck out of Florida State”
How do you feel about this #FSU fans 🤔 pic.twitter.com/MHYmI4ugTA
Kelly is such a politician that I'm sure he is just gonna lie and lie and lie till he convinces himself that he never said it but dude it's on your own damn radio show. Just come out and say yeah, I said it, fuck all of you. Own up to it. There's really no reason to even lie about it. Of course the coach thinks he is gonna beat his opponent. I thought LSU would beat FSU before they got boat raced. Shit happens.
Some players have their Heisman pose as their Heisman moment and some players like Notre Dame QB Sam Hartman have a different kind of moment. Hartman, ever the joker, signaled in some interesting offensive signals to backup QB Steve Angeli in the 2nd half of the Tennessee State blowout.
Not a huge shocker by any means but still it's gotta hurt Tyler Buchner's ego a little bit. Buchner transferred to Alabama and followed OC Tommy Rees after he lost his starting job to Sam Hartman in the spring. Now it looks like Buchner might not even be 2nd string. He's not the clipboard holder or Nick Saban's chord holder but to be honest he isn't that far from it at this point of his collegiate career. I feel for Buchner. He should have probably just stuck it out in Notre Dame and got his degree and then transferred. Oh well. It's all hindsight now.
Jalen Milroe will start at QB for @AlabamaFTBL in Saturday’s opener against Middle Tennessee State, sources tell ESPN. Milroe has taken most of the first-team reps this preseason while competing with Notre Dame transfer Tyler Buchner and freshmen Ty Simpson and Dylan Lonergan.— Chris Low (@ClowESPN) September 1, 2023
As we enter week 1 of college football let's take a look at the early favorites to win the 2023 Heisman Trophy odds courtesy of BETMGM.com ....
Heisman Trophy Favorites: Odds To Win, 2023
|Jordan Travis||Florida State||+1200|
|Michael Penix Jr.||Washington||+1400|
|Sam Hartman||Notre Dame||+1600|
|Drake Maye||North Carolina||+1800|
|Kyle McCord||Ohio State||+2500|
|Marvin Harrison Jr.||Ohio State||+2500|
|Drew Allar||Penn State||+2500|
|Devin Brown||Ohio State||+3300|
|Conner Weigman||Texas A&M||+4000|
|Spencer Rattler||South Carolina||+5000|
USC QB Caleb Williams is the odds on favorite to repeat as Heisman Trophy winner but it won't happen. Last year Bryce Young was the favorite to repeat and he didn't even come close to winning it a second time. Bama had a much better team than USC this season and Bryce Young went #1 overall in the NFL Draft and he still didn't even get an invite to NYC as a finalist.
I think after what we saw last week you gotta take Sam Hartman over Caleb Williams. Hartman at +1600 after his near flawless performance in Ireland had the likes of Brady Quinn gushing that this is Notre Dame's best team he can remember seeing watch play makes me think that Hartman is gonna be a big reason why they can beat the likes of Ohio State, USC and Clemson in prime time.
You gotta have big time performances in prime time to get voters eyes and Sam Hartman will have plenty of those this season.
Who else would you bet on?
Notre Dame legend Brady Quinn does make some great points with the Notre Dame offense and it's ability to put a lot of points on the board with 6th-year senior Sam Hartman and all the RB and WR weapons and the stellar offensive line he has protecting him but let's slow down on this Notre Dame team being the best he's ever seen. First off I remember some pretty stellar offensive teams with Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen leading the way in South Bend. Unfortunately they had shitty defenses and not enough depth at the RB position. If this Notre Dame team is gonna be the best Brady has ever seen it will have to beat Ohio State, USC and Clemson because their defense comes up with some big plays and gets to the quarterback.
The first game defense vs an undersized Navy team hardly shows us anything neither will this week's game vs Tennessee State. But the NC State game in Raleigh next week with a veteran gunslinger in Brennan Armstrong will show us if the defense can make enough plays and hit the QB to give ND fans the confidence to think they can beat the likes of Ohio State and USC in prime time.
But look I loved everything I saw last Saturday in Ireland. Notre Dame looked really fucking good. The offense was basically perfect with Sam Hartman leading the way and the defense shut down Navy's vaulted running game. If this is one of the best teams in a long, long time they will come out this week and absolutely destroy the Eddie George led Tennessee State squad that has no business even scoring on ND.
