Deion Sanders made a head-scratching decision late earlier this week. He took play-calling responsibilities out of the hands of Sean Lewis — Colorado’s first-year offensive coordinator who was generating head coaching candidate buzz earlier in the year — and gave them to analyst Pat Shurmur.

Doing so meant Sanders would need to demote someone from his on-field staff. It also put Lewis’ future firmly in doubt.

Considering Colorado’s flaws this year, many were shocked by Sanders’ decision. Colorado had not shown any ability to run the football this year. The offensive line has been a massive weakness.

Things looked aggressively similar in a 26-19 loss to Oregon State on Saturday.

Heading into the fourth quarter, Colorado had 78 yards of offense and 12 rushing yards on 15 carries. Quarterback Shedeur Sanders had completed 15 of his 25 passes for 66 yards. The Buffs were averaging 2 yards a play and had only seven first downs to Oregon State’s 21.

And Sanders was catching heat from all over on social media over the performance.
