Shedeur Sanders heard from Tom Brady after record-setting Colorado debut
Shedeur Sanders got a text from Tom Brady after his record-setting debut for the Colorado Buffaloes over the weekend.
It was a short — but effective — message.
“Don’t be satisfied.”
In Colorado’s 45-42 win over then-No. 17 TCU, Sanders was superb. He completed 38 of his 47 passes for 510 yards and four touchdowns without an interception. The performance set nine school records, including for the most passing yards in a game in program history.
Sanders also set a Pac-12 record for yardage in an FBS debut.
“It was cool hearing from him, knowing he’s still watching,” Sanders said Tuesday.
Sanders and Brady have worked together in the past. Sanders has gotten the chance to pick the brain of one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. And it has certainly helped.
“Working with him, it really helped me understand (to not) focus on the good things. We did that. We’re gonna do that regardless. Focus on the bad things,” he said. “Focus on the things that we weren’t able to do at a high level. Improve that, then you’ve got full armor everywhere.”
“[Tom Brady] texted me after the game, ‘don’t be satisfied.’”

Sanders was asked how the Buffs respond to a huge win in their opener, to being at the center of the college football universe in a sense. He smiled and said, “This ain’t my first time here.”
Colorado, now up to No. 22 in the country in the latest AP Top 25, will look to move to 2-0 on Saturday when it hosts Nebraska at Folsom Field.
