Paul Finebaum will be on Deion Sanders’ list of non-believers.

The SEC Network host was on ESPN’s Get Up Tuesday morning and laughed at the thought the Buffs could be in the College Football Playoff conversation this season.

Following a 45-42 upset win over No. 17 TCU to open the year, Sanders and the Buffs have taken hold of every major headline across the country. Every sports talk show has discussed whether this CU team, which went 1-11 a year ago, is legit. And Sanders had made believers our of quite a few doubters.

Not Finebaum. Not yet, at least.

The question posed to Finebaum was a simple one. Fact or fiction, Colorado will be in the College Football Playoff conversation this season?

“Farcical, really. Remember, Deion was predicted to win three games and I think he’ll have that done by September,” Finebaum said before dropping the hammer.

“They’re a really nice program, he is owning the sport, but there is absolutely — I can’t believe I’m about to say this, Deion — there is absolutely no chance, no chance whatsoever, that they are ever in the conversation past October.”

According to ESPN’s updated Football Power Index (FPI) — which saw the Buffs jump 31 spots after their Week 1 win — Colorado has a 0.0% chance of winning the Pac-12 and a 0.0% chance of making it to the CFP.

FPI projects a 5-7 record this season.

That’s still an improvement over preseason projections.

But Coach Prime probably won’t like it.

“Guess what? We’re gonna consistently do what we do because I’m here and I ain’t going nowhere,” Sanders said on Saturday. “I’m about to get comfortable in a minute. I’m about to get comfortable in a minute.”
