Why Colorado Qb Shedeur Sanders Has No Chance Of Winning The Heisman Trophy

Colorado's rise to collegiate football stardom is understandable. Buffaloes head coach Deion Sanders thrills reporters and fans, and his son, Shedeur Sanders, is a star player.

Through three games, Sanders stands second in Division I in passing yards (1,251), fourth in completion percentage (78.7), and seventh in touchdowns (10).

According to DraftKings, the Colorado quarterback's Heisman Trophy chances have decreased from 125-to-1 before the season to 18-to-1.

The Heisman Trophy is about winning games and having great stats. According to the Heisman website, 73 of the 87 winners had two or fewer defeats.

Only 11 winners ever competed for three-losers. Three played for four-loss teams. 

The Buffaloes are 3-0, but they needed a late home comeback to beat 24-point underdog Colorado State in overtime.

The Buffaloes will miss their finest player, cornerback/wide receiver Travis Hunter, for a few weeks due to injury.

No, Colorado's overall defense (460.3 yards per game) ranks 122nd out of 130. It defeated Colorado State (0-2), Nebraska (1-2), and a struggling TCU (2-1).
