Mike Sanford sees 2007 Stanford vibes in Buffs coaching staff

The Colorado Buffaloes football team is channeling the Stanford team from over a decade ago.

How exactly?

Well, new Buffs offensive coordinator Mike Sanford is settling into his role in Boulder and spoke about how this group reminds him of Stanford — a program that Sanford was a part of twice during his coaching career (h/t Neill Woelk of CUBuffs.com).

“We’re all in it together and it feels that way every day I go to work. These kinds of staffs, when given the opportunity to do things over the course of time, I’ve seen it time and again — it feels like Stanford back in 2007. We were given that opportunity to build something special and you saw it come to fruition (in 2012-13).”

Sanford has been around the college football ranks for some time and worked with both Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw when he was at Stanford.

So, for him to sense a feeling of that 2007 Stanford team certainly bodes well for the Buffs going forward. After all, Stanford was a force during those times.

Are the Buffs going to compete for a Pac-12 title in 2022? Most likely not. But, as Sanford senses, things are trending in the right direction in Boulder.
