Coach Prime’s receipts list: Examining Colorado’s crowded bulletin board

Like most people, Deion Sanders takes great joy in proving his doubters wrong. The first-year head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes received plenty of criticism heading into this season but through three games, Coach Prime has exceeded nearly all outside expectations.

The Buffs and their “It’s personal” mantra went undefeated in nonconference play and are now looking to slay Oregon on Saturday. After two consecutive weeks as the favorite, Colorado is once again seen as the underdog in its first Pac-12 game.

Because “It’s personal,” below are some of the more notable “receipts” that could very well be pinned to a bulletin board somewhere in Boulder:
