Deion Sanders and Colorado’s ridiculous collapse: I just didn’t like the way I felt at halftime

Although leading 29-0 at the half, Deion Sanders felt uneasy.
Though it may not be the worst collapse in Colorado history, there is still reason to be uneasy.

Troy Taylor, the coach of Stanford, did little more than watch as the Cardinals gradually pulled off the biggest comeback in school history.

This game will go down in the annals of both programs as a late-night thriller that began on Friday, the 13th and ended on Saturday, the 14th.

Stanford defeated Colorado 46-43 early on Saturday after Elic Ayomanor recorded a school-record 294 yards receiving and Joshua Karty made a 31-yard field goal in the second overtime after tying the score in regulation.

“For these guys to be down 29 to nothing against a really good football team and just not give up is a special game,” Taylor remarked.
“This one will be fun for us.

Sanders also had a feeling that something was wrong.
There’s just a tiny hint of complacency developing.

“I discussed with them the old cliché that goes, ‘It’s 0-0, but that’s not true.
It’s 29-nothing, not 0-0,” the Colorado head coach declared.
“At the half, I sensed complacency because we stalled offensively and gave up some yardage.
I just didn’t feel good going into halftime. When we step outside again, complacency appears. That team is coming; you and I both find them intolerable.
You are incapable of comprehending how on earth that occurs to us.
Though it did.

I merely spat it out.

At halftime, the Cardinals (2-4, 1-3 Pac-12) were behind 29-0, and quarterbacks Ashton Daniels and Justin Lamson were unable to ignite a comeback.

That is, until Daniels led Stanford on eight consecutive scoring drives in the second half, with Lamson chipping in. 408 of the 523 yards for the Cardinal came in the second half and overtime.

Daniels completed his passes for 4 touchdowns and 396 yards.
Following halftime, Ayomanor had 13 catches for 3 touchdowns, including a spectacular catch to tie the first overtime and another for 97 yards that turned the tide of the game.
Troy Walters’ school record of 278 yards received in a 1999 game against UCLA was surpassed by his 294 yards.
